- A truly special place -
El Patio is located in the historic district of Silver City and boasts a five minute walk to the heart of historic downtown. Built in the late 1800's of traditional adobe block, this home is one of the earliest built in the area around the time Silver city was first settled. Post WWII, it was divided into two smaller dwellings to accommodate returning soldiers and their families. Today, the building itself is a testament to the soundness and ingenuity of adobe construction and the building methods of that time.
Named for the pleasant outdoor space it provides, El Patio offers a 500 sq. ft. flagstone patio that is bordered with many plantings, both native and otherwise, to ensure the presence of humming birds, bees and butterflies. In addition to being visually pleasing, the patio sits beneath a canopy of trees that provide shade throughout the day. There is a full size gas grill, dining seating for six, and separate lounge chairs. For evening enjoyment, the outside can be lit with soft party lights that gracefully hang between the trees and house itself. There is also a stone fire pit available for use as fire conditions allow.
Inside, you'll find the home truly defies its age; quite simply, it is bright, warm and inviting. The interior has been renovated to bring a freshness to the space, while keeping its unique features and original charm intact.
For your convenience, the kitchen is supplied with all the essentials for cooking/preparing meals, as well as, having a full size stove and refrigerator.
The bathroom has been redone with a multicolored slate floor, and a custom tile inlay that surrounds the original claw-foot bathtub. For your comfort, the towels are soft and durable, and shampoo and soap are provided.
The beds are dressed with soft, 100% cotton sheets, light quilts/down comforters, and soft or firmer pillows. The space also provides ample storage: In addition to a dresser in each bedroom, EVERY room has its own closet and shelving with plenty of room to store belongings and hang clothes for longer stays.
Not only is El Patio highly accessible to downtown galleries, restaurants and special events, it also sits directly across the street from the open space known as Boston Hill - aptly named for the Boston based mining company contracted to extract silver from the area 60 years ago. “The hill” is now home to a vast network of trails spanning 9 square miles - ideal for long or shorter hikes, mountain biking and impressive, comprehensive views of the city.
