About the Property

Private 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath On The Chama River With 360º Mountain View

Designed as a personal private retreat by a Chicago architect, this modern adobe style home harmonizes perfectly with the natural simple environment. The cozy casita's well-lit living room is furnished with traditional Mexican leather tub chairs, a comfortable sand-colored love seat, and the owner's original paintings.

The well-appointed kitchen features hand-carved and painted Mexican cabinetry and the dining area seats four comfortably in French leather bistro chairs.

The two bedrooms feature queen beds with brand new pillowtop mattresses covered with high-thread count sheets and down comforters. Both bedrooms feature ensuite baths, tiled with Mexican terra cotta tile, featuring spacious vanities with ample storage, Egyptian cotton towels, and hotel quality robes.

While well separated from the main house, guests at the casita may avail themselves of the hot tub, grill, and bocce ball court. The casita has its own ramada, perfect for enjoying a night cap and staring at the mulitudes of stars.

Plaza Blanca, with its white cathedral stone spires made famous by Georgia O'Keefe, is only a five minute drive away. The famous Ghost Ranch, former winter home of Ms. O'Keefe, is just twenty minutes away and features creative workshops, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, hiking, or you can simply sit and soak in the dramatic beauty. Or if you wish to explore your creative side, the owner, the established abstract artist Susan Schuler offers private and small group instruction for all skill levels.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am an abstract painter and I moved to Abiquiu, NM about 3 1/2 years ago. I fell in love with the beautiful area and the artist community. The community is warm and friendly and it seems that Abiquiu has become the new hot spot of NM. Most people are not that familiar with the area. The landscape is filled with red rock mountains, and blue mountain ranges. The Sangre de Cristo mountains are the backdrop for the casita and most of the year they are snow capped against that western blue sky. Ghost Ranch and Georgia O'Keefe's home are in Abiquiu.

Why the Owner Chose Abiquiu, NM, USA:
I did not intend to move to NM. I was visiting friends and decided to look at property for the fun of it. When I entered the 24 acres right on the river and my beautiful home which was originally built by a Chicago architect and his partner , I knew I was home. Both the casita and my home are filled with light and no matter which window you gaze out of the view is spectacular. I could not get the property out of my mind. The casita was a bonus as it is a wonderful space for family and friends to unwind and it gives me the opportunity to rent it out to new people exploring the area. I love meeting my interesting guests and hope that they enjoy the space as much as I.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Abiquiu is only 50 minutes out of Santa Fe and about 1 hour and 15 minutes to Taos. We are also only 50 minutes from Los Alamos. There is a superb chef owner restaurant that has opened in Abiquiu called Arioso. Lunch and dinner reservations must be made online and you bring your own beverage and aperitif to be enjoyed with your delightful meal. The Chef Julian goes out of his way to create 4 courses that are divine. The reataurant is very close to Viento del Rio. There is hiking, rafting , and kayaking. Abiquiu Lake which recently put in a new beach is only 20 minutes away. A wonderful art gallery called the Rising Moon gallery has local and international artists work. Jaye Buros , who is the proprietor and herself an artist has a wide variety of entertainment at the gallery from authors talks, gallery openings and music through the area.
