North Hills House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrms, 2 Baths, 1 Car Garage, Formal Dining, Living Room with Gas Fireplace

BEAUTIFUL CASA BELLA on SUNSET is a spacious home located in a quiet compound four blocks from town and six blocks from The Historical Plaza with all the shopping, restaurants, galleries and all the FUN Santa Fe has to offer. This beautifully designer appointed home with San Miguel esthetics, latillas and vegas ceiling, and the warmth of wood floors and custom plantation shutters though-out is the perfect vacation getaway! The main floor has a gorgeous living room with a wonderful corner gas fireplace for those snowy evenings of sitting by the fire with your favorite

beverage. The casement patio doors in the living room flood the living room with the glorious Santa Fe light in the mornings. I decided on this home one morning as I was standing in this doorway watching the morning sun stream in and persimmon became my focal point of the color scheme. A formal dining space makes entertaining an elegant affair. The granite counters, SS appliances, gas oven and stove and all the culinary amenities in the fully appointed kitchen are a chef's delight (the owner was a restauranteur in Aspen and organizer for the Aspen Food and Wine Classic). Williams-Sonoma can be an addiction! A guest bedroom, full bathroom and walk-in closet on the main level create a convenient atmosphere. The lower level has a large master suite that accommodates a relaxing sitting area with an armoire and second television where one can 'get away' and lends itself to the ultimate sense of privacy. A large walk-in closet and gorgeous bath makes this area complete. The baths have seamless glass enclosures and traveler shower heads. The attached garage and full washer dryer are on this level. Luxurious, quality linens are plentiful. Warmer weather invites you to enjoy the enclosed adobe-walled patio. The walls are lushly covered in a verdant Virginia Creeper which creates a 'secret garden' and the vines turn a vibrant burgundy red in the fall. Patio chairs are large and double cushioned for comfort. Fleece throws are waiting in the foyer closet. The fire pit turns an evening into a romantic venue ...accompanied by the gentle splashes from the fountain and the rustling of the aspens that canopy the garden. I often open the casement doors, put on some smooth jazz or light classical music, build a fire in the fire pit, open a bottle of wine, watch the night sky and stars and am lulled by the gentle splash of the fountain and the aspens 'quaking' in the breeze. This home is one of distinction! Come enjoy, wine, dine, relax, entertain, make wonderful memories that last a lifetime and experience your real and fantasy home away from home in the 'City Different'.

About Carolyn Hatton

Retired professional , former restauranteur and former consultant

Carolyn Hatton purchased this house in 2006

Why Carolyn Hatton chose Santa Fe


Four block from town and six blocks from the The Historical Plaza...and 5 minutes drive to most restaurants, museums and cultural venues. Living 'in-town' gives you the ultimate most intimate feeling of living the true 'Santa Fe Style'.

What makes this house unique



Private garden with fountain element and fire pit and a GARAGE! (EXTREMELY COVETED IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA AS THEY ARE RARE PHENOMENA)!

a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn was the consummate host(less). She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure I was ready for the trip with a number of good suggestions. And even though I had been to Santa Fe several times before, she was telling me things and places I didn't know.

Casa Bella was super comfy, and just what we were looking for. It was nice and quiet, and I would stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

Property description was accurate.

Property was very clean and well maintained

Incredible customer service from owner.

Walking distance to Plaza.

We will certainly recommend the property to friends and relatives.

Loved Cafe Pasqual's & La Casa Sena for both lunch and dinner.

Vinaigrette & Santa Fe Bite for lunch.

Geronimo & The Compound for dinner. Assuming one does not mind the very high prices at both restaurants!!!!!!

Carolyn's home is welcoming and beautiful. And Carolyn is the best virtual "host" ever. All of her recommendations on restaurants and activities were superb. Her follow up on all questions was immediate and spot on. We'll be return visitors no doubt.

Would Love to Own this Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Casa Bella. This home is immaculate and wonderfully decorated, the location is great for a short walk to the Square and the owner is the best hostess we have ever encountered. She went over and beyond to ensure her home truly was “our home away from home” for us. She called us several times while we were at Casa Bella to make sure everything was perfect. We enjoyed cooking in her beautiful kitchen, the bed was very comfortable and the overall experience was perfection. Some of the days were warm and we appreciated having AC.

She called before we arrived in Santa Fe to recommend making dinner reservations ahead of time at some of her favorite restaurants. She also suggested going to her favorite museums, golf courses and watching the bronze pouring at Shidoni Foundry.

We have wonderful memories of Santa Fe and Casa Bella was a perfect destination during our road trip. Thanks so much, Carolyn.
