Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are long distance motorcyclists and hikers. We came to Silver City to visit friends and fell in love with the community. Being outdoor enthusiasts and loving historic buildings, we found ourselves in Silver City... home of 'Four Gentle Seasons'. We now enjoy those seasons to great benefit since moving here permanently in 2012. After living in Boulder Colorado for 30 years, we are working to preserve several historic properties here in Silver and we truly happy to have discovered such an amazing community.

Why the Owner Chose Silver City, New Mexico, United States of America:
We are historical renovators and this property was due for a spa treatment so it could go on to its next 100 years. The history, iconicism and it's size drew us to the property. Located on a hill overlooking a good portion of Silver City it has, beyond a doubt, one of the premier views of town while still being a part of downtown. Boston Hill open space trailhead is at the base of our property...walk out the door to hike for hours overlooking the town of Silver City. The 1906 Carter house has a long and storied past. One of it's commonalities is the love of it's owners. We thank the many that came before us for using good judgement in their stewardship of this property. Being a part of the Cultural and Historic districts, walking distance to downtown and Western New Mexico University, and being at the trailhead of the Boston Hill trail system was just all too good to pass up.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a welcoming property. In town but still right at the entrance to hiking and close to avenues that lead out of town to great biking, hiking and auto or motorcycle touring. We are very flexible with the use of the property and can negotiate your needs for use. It is best used for family gatherings on the main level. The apartments on the street level and top level are great for individuals or small groups of 1-5 people. Our goal is to offer a comfortable, pleasurable experience that will leave you with fond memories and bring you back to our community again and again.
