About Susan Ashcroft

I love Marfa and can't believe how lucky I am to own a home there. It is incredibly special! My main residence is in Houston, but I spend as much time out there as possible. Managing this property is my full-time job, along with my 5 kids and 4 dogs.

Susan Ashcroft purchased this house in 2013

Why Susan Ashcroft chose Big Bend Country

I fell in love with Marfa 20 years ago. I am from Arizona originally and I guess there is a part of me that just loves that high desert climate. The climate in Marfa is amazing, the summer temps even in the hottest part of the year still drop into the 60s at night. The light in Marfa is beautiful. The sunsets, sunrises, the clouds - it is easy to see why artists have been drawn here. It's remoteness is a huge part of the appeal for me and my husband.

What makes this house unique

This home is just such a classic. It has beautiful bones, with high ceilings and wonderful windows. The porch is so welcoming. The wood floors are original - worn but with character and beauty. It is cozy yet open and spacious for it's size. My new outdoor living space is complete and it is will blow you away.

Awesome house!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible experience my girlfriends and I had in Marfa!

The Ashcroft adobe was icing on a perfect cake!

Perfect accommodations and perfect outside retreat.

We started out each morning and ended each evening in front of a fire in the wonderful outside fireplace.

The house was stocked with just about everything you can imagine!!

Can't wait to come back!!

Charming and comfortable!! Wonderful outdoor soace

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our time! House lived up to all expectations. Well decorated and furnished. Communication with owner and property managers was always professional, welcoming, and timely. Despite no central AC, house was cool with ceiling fans/window units and always comfortable. We spent time enjoying the fabulous outdoor space and porch. The next-door neighbors were extremely friendly. Location was ideal. Walked around the corner to Farma for coffee, and one block to the Hotel Paisano. Will definitely remember this home in the future. So thankful for the opportunity to stay there.

Fantastic! We loved the house! Wonderfully updated and fun/quirky furnishings. The armadillo bowl was a family favorite!

The outdoor living area was so nice to have. Great for morning coffee. I wouldn't change a thing!
