About the Property

Mi Casita Peaceful Mountain Retreat Or Artist Get-a-way

Get-a-way to this peaceful adobe casita located on 6 acres. Breath the crisp mountain air and see the stirring vistas, without the noise and flood of tourists. The home is set among the foothills, with cactus, wildflowers, pinon and junipers trees, along an arroyo, and is visited by hummingbirds and various wildlife. You have a grand view of four different mountain ranges. With glorious sunrises and sunsets followed by star gazing at night. The home has been lovingly furnished with extensive southwestern touches and Native American art. Skylights throughout the house bring our amazing light inside. Ceiling fans hum invitingly and the Kiva fireplace can create a peaceful, cozy ambiance, for cooler evenings. The house is nicely appointed with the following amenities: Kiva fireplace, vegas, small kitchen, refrigerator, two burner stove, small convection oven, washer and dryer, flat screen TV, DVD player, DVD collection, WiFi, 1 Queen Bed, 1 Full Bed, 1 bathroom with shower only, Spa Robes, Lush Towels, 600 Thread Count Cotten Sheets, 2 patios, ample outside parking, views and trails. Perfect for an artist or writers retreat. The beauty and peacefulness of its surroundings are unmatched and the close proximity to the galleries and restaurants of Santa Fe make its location the best of both worlds.

5 Miles to the famous, Harry's Roadhouse Restaurant, a 15 minute drive to historical downtown Santa Fe and for the fishing enthusiast, Pecos River, is just 15 min. east. A popular area for bike riding enthusiast and close to a local starting point... Check out Spin Doctor's bike shop. Easy access to I-25. A true get-a-way to quiet, beauty and sunsets that will take your breath away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Hi, my name is Julie Crow and I am an American born in Dallas, TX. I fell in love with Santa Fe when I was a child... and have been coming here ever since. There is a peacefulness and calm that comes from this place. It is as if my soul seeks refuge and is replenished each and every time I am here. It is truly as if time stands still. I am able to give myself more quiet time and cherish my moments with my family, that much more. If you are here alone or with friends or family... I hope you will also find the peace and light here as I have. (Photo) of my sister and myself at The Shed... love the shrimp!!!

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
The first time I saw this property I knew it was where I wanted to be... for quiet and peacefulness. I have five boys and this is my quiet little refuge to get away from it all. The quiet and breathtaking views stole my heart. Where each and every night God's hand is painting a new spectacular sunset. Sometimes in bold and beautiful colors, others in light pale pallets. Each one more breathtaking than the next. With the Santa Fe year round activities and 320 sunny days a year.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Mi Casita, is truly a destination. Just step out the front or back door and take a seat. The mornings are so peaceful and the evening sky so beautiful. Take a walk and look for miles at the mountain tops and the piñon trees and smell the Juniper. This traditional adobe where skylights abound to let natural light in, arched doorways, vigas, portals and kiva fireplaces make this home special. The house is full of carefully chosen antique pieces and antique and original art and many architectural interest. Plush bedding, books, TV, Blu Ray player, and everything you would need to be comfortable. This self contained 800 sq. ft. Casita has all the benefits of seclusion and yet it is just minutes away from the historic Plaza, all the downtown cultural amenities, art, art and more art and and all the many fine restaurants.
