Manager info

Year Purchased: 1967

About: I was born and raised in Marfa, Texas and now live on the East Coast with my wife.

Why Marfa, TX, USA:
This home has sentimental value to me because my parents purchased it brand new in 1967 and raised me, my brother and two sisters here. My siblings and I have all since moved away and I decided to renovate the home because I wanted to keep visiting my home town and to share my house with travelers to the region. The kitchen is special to me because of my memories of my Mom cooking delicious food and the backyard holds fond memories of my dad taking care of the trees, plants and rose bushes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
High quality, comfortable furnishings and upscale finishes throughout. This renovation was thorough and no corner was cut. Casa Amarilla has a great kitchen and the backyard is by far one of the best in Marfa.
