About the Property
An Historic Eastside Home close walking distance to all things in downtown
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
