Property description

Fun adobe house, featured in the latest photo book "Marfa Modern - Artistic Interiors of the West Texas High Desert", located on the western edge of town with everything you need for a comfy stay in Marfa. This house belongs to a private chef & art collector who carefully restored the adobe himself.
This house is great for up to 4 people.
1 Bedroom downstairs - Queen bed, sleeps two.
1 Loft bedroom upstairs - Full size bed, sleeps two.

Davis Mountain views from the property, the kitchen and the outdoor courtyard.
Great stargazing.
Courtyard with a unique soaking tub and hammock.
Escape the event crowds & noise.
Concrete floors and lofty white ceilings.

You’ll have the best of both Marfa’s: the town's events, restaurants, & music + the magic of the high desert. While just over a mile from the center of downtown, you’ll be able to escape to spend the evenings stargazing in the back yard or courtyard, soaking in its outdoor tub, or relaxing in the hammock. On cool nights the back patio provides great sunset views.

Inside you’ll find:
Full kitchen with gas convection range, microwave, concrete countertops, wooden butcher block and plenty of kitchen equipment.
Rain head shower inside full bath.
Lofty ceilings
1 bedroom downstairs with queen bed (down & feather bed topper, choice of feather or fiber-filled pillows, carefully selected linens—including flannel in the winter and crisp cotton in the summer).

There is a loft bedroom with a full sized bed with memory foam topper offering amazing mountain views from the bed. A steep set or stairs leads to this space.

Dining room with hand-made dining table also doubles as a great artist space, studio with fine indirect morning light.

Outside you’ll find:
Private courtyard with outdoor soaking tub & hammock.

No pets or small children, please.
Due to the recent city wide "burn ban", outdoor fires in the fireplace are prohibited at this time.

Year Purchased: 1997

About: I bought an adobe ruin in Marfa in 1997 after locating the run-down shell of a house with the help of some friends. I've worked on it for quite a few years attempting to make it into a super comfy retreat at the edge of town in Marfa.

Why Marfa, TX, USA:
This rustic adobe artist's space allows you to experience the real feel of West Texas yet in an extremely comfortable dwelling.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Mountain views, great kitchen, comfortable beds.
