About david wiles
My name is David Wiles. I have lived in Santa Fe for around 19 years. I came from Santa Fe with basically very little and have created a lighting extravaganza here at my listing. I assure you there is no listing like what I have created. I have a passion for traveling the world for 2 to 4 months at a time plus enjoy my yearly sojourn to Black Rock City in the Nevada Desert for 14 years. My most recent passion is creating light with G scale or garden train layouts. I have around 400 feet of track on the property and 10 locomotives with a circus train as well as passenger cars that light up at night. I started the train hobby around August of 2017. It has grown very fast. I try to stay current in life with exercising my creative side. I am blessed to have tools and experience to fabricate some of my ideas into various unique and interesting sculptures of light, water, and fire. From my travels and work as a glass blower of neon lighting for the last 12 years I have what some people call a love for lighting. I love the multi colored lasers which add an amazing lighting effect to gardens and water features in the warmer months. I have also designed 3 fire sculptures in the yard and 2 water sculptures that live on the property. My friends often remark about how my place has an interesting appearance of burning man meets Meow Wolf. Every month there is a new lighting feature on the property. (this varies durning seasons) Part of my creative passion to visualize and construct sculptures with fire and water, crystals and laser lights. I mentioned that I am adding video on the train locomotives that gives the observer a real time view of the journey of the train around the track through a jungle of lights and crystals. (current project) I also studied percussion at Interlochen Arts Academy and Oberlin Conservatory and am fond of great music and have performed in Carnegie Hall and most of Europe with symphony orchestras. I have retired from performing .
david wiles purchased this Apartment in 2002
Why david wiles chose Santa Fe
I purchased this property several years ago because there are no neighbors to the back of the lot line which offers more privacy. There are a number of trees through out which attracts all kinds of birds during the warm months. This was the easiest and most convenient of my properties to create into a master piece. It is centrally located to most of Santa Fe and it's location offers a quick escape north to Taos while being about 2 miles west of the Plaza. The opera is also located 10 minutes from our front door to the north with Meow Wolf only a 5 minute drive the other direction. There is also a lovely river walk right out the door of the house. The river often is not running however when it does it is even better for short walks. The beauty of this property other than the central location , is the added water features in the fall, spring, and summer. I have enjoyed making this place into a lighting mecca as well and the interesting array of lighting, crystals and water features. There is noting like it in any listing that you will find on VRBO.
What makes this Apartment unique
Based on the feed back I have heard: You will not find another place in Santa Fe with the decks and sunset views plus a lovely propane fire sculpture. New to the 2019 season is G scale train set up which I am happy to show guests on request. We are very close to the Meow Wolf installation and most convenient to down town and a block away from the Santa Fe river walk. This is one of the homiest rentals you will find anywhere. There are collectables from all over the world from my travels to many countries. They include Bali, Asia, Laos, India, Viet Nam, Cambodia, India, and Europe and China, Thailand, and Florida.
