About the Property

Comfortable Adobe House. Sleeps 6-8 Easily. Quiet Town Location

When we told locals (Marfans) we bought our house and described where it was everyone said; “Oh the Coach's house.' Many happy memories are present and being made in the house. It is a 3 bedroom / 2 full bath with all the comforts of home. The master bedroom with full bath is in front of the house away from the other bedrooms and newly renovated bathroom. We have two large living areas, high speed internet, dining and breakfast rooms, kitchen, all new bedding and Hot Water on Demand! We try to think of everything you need. Our house is located across from the Marfa schools; be sure to check if the high school teams have a home game! The courthouse square is less than a half mile away, a nice easy walk. Bikes are available with the house. We will consider pets - call to discuss. Recently graffiti artist Jules Muck from Venice Beach, CA painted an amazing mural at our house. She has displayed in museums and public spaces all over the world. You will love it. Be sure and take photos.

Located near town center, across from the Marfa Elementary School, our home is a peaceful place to start all your Marfa explorations. It is a nice walk to the courthouse/downtown area. Our house was built in the 1930's from adobe. Over the years, it was added onto so it is a large home perfect for more than one couple or a family. If you are in town during the week, catch a Marfa Shorthorn basketball game. Sit on our patio and star gaze. We are one block from the Lannan Foundation Park with its 'log' furniture. Just walk down Gonzales street to endless hiking trails through the ranch lands surrounding Marfa. Drive to Chinati, Fat Lyle's, and El Cosmico.
