Overview

About the property

An Historic Eastside Home close walking distance to all things in downtown

This Historic Eastside home on one-half acre, is located on Garcia street between Canyon Road and Acequia Madre. The 2,622 home has original wood floors, hand carved corbels, vigas and a huge sculpted fireplace in the salon-like living room. It is warm and cozy in the winter with three fire places and fresh and airy in the summer with many windows, portals and outdoor spaces to enjoy.

The historically significant Pink House (also called the Leonard Smith House) was designed and built by the architect W. M Rapp, designer builder of the La Fonda Hotel and Santa Fe's New Mexico Museum of Art during the 1920's. This home is a beautiful example of the Spanish-Pueblo revival style architecture of the early 1900's of Santa Fe. With a wonderful large front and back yard and west facing back portal, this home has large amount of outdoor space for barbequing, outdoor dinning and room for pets within the gated backyard. There is plenty of private parking behind an automatic gate, which can easily park 3 cars. The home has 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, 4 of the bedrooms have bathrooms directly accessible from them. The home has 3 porches and can comfortably accommodate outdoor dinners.

The Residence is half a block from Canyon Road and a ten minute walk to the Plaza. Many of the wonderful sites in Santa Fe are within walking distance of the home.

The Plaza, The Railyard, Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, New Mexico Museum of Art, The Cathedral, San Miguel Mission, Lensic Performing Arts Center, Palace of the Governors, Loretto Chapel and many more.

To come to the house from the airport:

If you take the Sandia Shuttle, the closet drop off location is La Posada Hotel, the home is just 3 blocks away.

Driving Directions from Albuquerque Airport:

Once entering Santa Fe on I25, take the Old Pecos Trail exit and turn left. Stay on Old Pecos Trail until it hits Paseo de Peralta, turn right on Paseo de Peralta, right on Canyon Road and right on Garcia Street. The house is halfway down the block on the right side.

Interaction with Guests:

Interaction with guests is as much or as little as guest would prefer. If interested we are happy to arrange guided tours of New Mexico and/or gallery tours of the Peters Projects and GP Gallery of Santa Fe which is located directly next door.

The Neighborhood:

Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside

With some homes dating back centuries, these neighborhoods boast some of Santa Fe’s most photographed adobe homes and gardens. Hosting a mix of multi-generational families and newcomers, the homes, often hidden behind high walls and accessed by narrow, dirt lanes, recall the city’s early history and lend Santa Fe a unique heritage. Views are scarce here, but authenticity and atmosphere dominate.

Canyon Road

Long famous for the galleries, restaurants and specialty shops, Canyon Road has become one of Santa Fe’s most popular attractions. Upper Canyon Road has long-established residences and the Randall Davey Audubon Center, encompassing 135 acres and miles of hiking trails, a nature store, and the historic house of artist Randall Davey.

Nearby Neighborhoods

Old Santa Fe Trail

Stretching from the heart of Santa Fe to Missouri, this historic westward route has carried thousands to the Southwest. Now, Old Santa Fe Trail boasts gracious, adobe homes and newer architectural wonders. Around the ‘museum district’, housing the Museum Of International Folk Art ,The Museum Of Indian Arts and Culture, The Wheelwright Museum Of The American Indian, the terrain is dotted with piñon and juniper.

Old Pecos Trail

Bordered in the northeast by Old Santa Fe Trail and in the southwest by the South Capitol area, the length of this road comprises a professional district and established communities. The hospital is located here as are many of the doctors’ offices.

South Capitol

Established in the early part of the Twentieth Century to accommodate the growing railroad industry, this area has many different architectural styles. From bungalows to brick homes to older adobes, the different styles all work together to create a lovely mosaic. The trees are old and large, the sidewalks broad and well-planned. Wood Gormley elementary school is centrally located.

Guadalupe Historic District

Bordered on the east by the ancient Santuario de Guadalupe, the end of the Camino Real, and in the west by St. Francis Drive, this little neighborhood is a collection of beautifully-renovated adobes and up-and-comers.The lots are small and tidy. Short walking distance from the Plaza, shops and a quaint movie theater.

Please ask about ten nights or longer.

About Krista Peters

Born in New Mexico and raised between New Mexico and NYC. I am a native new mexican with a deep appreciation and admiration for the culture of Northern New Mexico.

A little slice of heaven...

  • 5 of 5

We felt so privileged to have been guests in this historic home. It was like stepping back into time, and after reading the story of the Pink House, we felt as if we became a part of its history. The furnishings helped tell its story, and the grounds added a whole other dimension. We loved sitting out on the patio in the evening with our cocktails and watching the western sky.

The lovely bottle of wine set out for us by the owner and the fresh flowers gracing the rooms added such a lovely welcoming touch. The kitchen was well-stocked, quite adequate for our needs. We were a group of six women, and we would have liked one more bath, but we did survive!

Perhaps one of the best parts was the location. We were ecstatic to discover we were only a half block from Canyon Road, which made our trip so much easier since we could walk to about anything around the plaza and its neighborhoods. We left many pleasant memories in The Pink House to add to its rich heritage.

Beautiful home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The Pink House is beautifully furnished with charm and modern conveniences.It was the perfect spot for our family of five needing a long weekend break! Lots of room to be comfortable for an adult family both inside and out. Easy to get to Canyon Road galleries, coffee shops, restaurants, the Plaza and beyond. Santa Fe is a wonderful place to relax and get recharged!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure to stay in such a lovely historic home! The location cannot be better & the house was charming, well stocked & perfect for our family of 5. Easy communication throughout the rental process & there were absolutely no problems with our rental or stay (which hasn't always been our experience w/other rentals). This was my husband's favorite of the many houses we've rented on trips to Santa Fe - we look forward to returning! Highly recommend!

Awesome house and yard

  • 5 of 5

The house is a beautiful example of how historic can still be up to date. The house description doesn't do the property justice as the art work and book lined shelves were also a treasure. We enjoyed the large dining room table and the choice of seating groupings for conversation, food and laughter. The short walking distance to Canyon where art galleries and good restaurants were easily accessible, was wonderful. Still within walking distance, the square market was fascinating and provided us with many bargains! We certainly would recommend this house for vacation or to sit and enjoy the restful beauty of the property.
