Now air-conditioned. Authentic and unique, the former home of an artist with a two-story hand-plastered fireplace, Mexican tiles, art work painted on the upstairs bedroom walls and on one bathroom floor. Drink wine on the upstairs deck to view mountains, stars, and the sunset. Eat in the full sized kitchen or on the back patio under a grape arbor. Furnished with Western motif, sleep on the new queen-sized futon in the downstairs bedroom, which can be closed off by sliding oak doors and has its own private bath. Or use this space for reading or watching television.
The upstairs bedroom's queen bed provides hotel quality with 700 thread Egyptian cotton sheets and has its own adjoining bathroom. The living room's skylights give you light and a chance to watch the stars or a winter snow fall while sitting in front of the fire. All ceilings have vigas and latillos and the baths feature beautiful Mexican tiles.
Nestled up a drive, we provide the convenience of this historic road without the noise and traffic. Two off-road parking places.
High Season occurs during Christmas and summer and Santa Fe really comes to life, with many people coming from around the world. Summer brings the Santa Fe Opera, Chamber Music Festival, Folk Art Market, Spanish Market and Indian Market. Santa Fe is “high desert” although there are Aspens and a National Forest with skiing only 30 minutes away. Thus, the temperature is moderate during summer, generally with highs in the 70’s and 80’s during the day, cooling off at night, particularly cool by mid-August when a sweater may be advisable. The air is always fresh and clear with sunshine along with an occasional rain in the late summer. There can be double rainbows seen during July into September with clouds often building up over the Sangre De Christo mountains and passing across the city and surrounding landscape. The fall offers golden aspens, hikes, and a world-class hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque.
Christmas, enjoy the exquisite, famous Canyon Road walk when the galleries light up the street with farolitas (candles in paper bags) and Christmas lights. Holiday music can be heard from the near-by Cathedral and the carolers.
