Overview

About the property

A Gem in the Sky! Views surround you for more than 100 miles!

Indulge in our luxuriously comfortable get-away! Lots of privacy, light & VERY spacious, for families, retreats, or romantic getaways, with views for more than 100 miles! Only 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe!

DURING THANKSGIVING, XMAS AND NEW YEAR'S EVE THERE IS A 3-DAY MINIMUM STAY!

THE HOUSE

This one story gem is defined by windows in all directions and the light and views by day and night will take your breath away! The house features 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and lots of space for families, retreats or a romantic get-away and sleeps 6 guests comfortably. The master bedroom has a king size bed and two twin beds. The guest bedroom has a queen size bed and a twin bed.

Luxurious yet very comfortable!

Sophisticated but not fussy!

The expansive views from inside the house and from our 21 by 16 ft. outdoor deck are unbelievable! It IS a gem in the sky!

HOW TO GET THERE

We recommend vehicles with 4-wheel or all-wheel drive. This guarantees smooth sailing up the hill.

New Mexico is mountainous high-desert terrain!

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND MINI-VANS, the DODGE JOURNEY SUV, the FORD EXPLORER 4 by 2 or other LARGE front-wheel ONLY type cars UNLESS the driver is used to driving them in mountainous terrain! Good tires are always a plus. An alternative is to park on the bottom of the driveway and walk up to the house!

Our driveway is a bit steep and curvy for those who are used to driving only in metropolitan areas, but is not a problem. It is 80 ft. long and well maintained. It is common in the hills surrounding Santa Fe - to reach the top you have to go up!

Take it with momentum, stay in low gear and don't stop until you reach the parking area on top!

During the WINTER MONTHS when there is SNOW ON THE GROUND four wheel drive and winter tires are a must!

Santa Fe sits at 7,000 ft. in the southernmost Rocky Mountains.

If there is too much snow, one can park on the bottom of the driveway and walk up to the house. We have a snow removal service in place to clear the driveway, but if there is too much snow and ice you might have to wait for the streets leading up to the house to be plowed.

Most of the time, even if there is a big snow storm, the snow will melt off within 24 hours once the sun comes out.

We do have 300 sunny days a year!

THE AREA

Seton Village/Sunlit Hills, is slightly rural and the views are very expansive; the house is 2,100 sqft. and sits on its own hill top on 6 acres in one of the most desirable neighborhoods of Santa Fe, with a 10-minute drive to town.

Parking is available on top at the house for up to four cars.

Our 21 by 16 ft. deck allows you to take in unimaginable stars in the sky and vistas!

HOUSE RULES

We know our guests will bring charm and grace to our home and would not do anything that a sophisticated adult shouldn't be doing!

No smoking.

About Claudia Zorn

Santa Fe offers an extraordinary lifestyle filled with both culture and natural beauty. My husband and I have each been involved in contemporary art galleries in Santa Fe, New York and San Francisco. I am from Austria, and my husband was raised in California and France. We are passionate about exploring new countries, and we especially love introducing other travelers to Santa Fe, one of the most unique places in the world.

Beyond travel, our life is filled with our two children, two dogs, hiking, interior design, fine wine, opera, jazz, and classic films.

A Challenge and Reward

  • 5 of 5

My two adult daughters and I experienced a LOVELY time at Hilltop Skyhouse.

Getting up the steep drive way was definantly a challenge! But with Claudia and Peters help and instruction, we made it! And then it was fun! The house is emaculently clean and so bright with all the windows and white cotten curtains.

The views were endless and the sky was beautiful! Thank you to Claudia and Peter for putting so much thought, love and effort into the house. It was a wonderful short term home. Pamela Cash

Beautiful views and the location to town is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience! You do need a 4 wheel drive to get up steep hill! We had to park down below and drag luggage and groceries, but good exercise, but once you were at the top and saw the view it was all worth it!

Beautiful house, fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely - clean, beautifully decorated, with everything you need. The view of downtown Santa Fe from the deck is amazing. The owner is so kind and did everything she could to make us comfortable - even brought us a load of firewood midweek. Our only tip is to be prepared to not have TV - only Netflix on roku. Not a big deal but something to be aware of.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We love this property! The view is ridiculous. A little windy one day but perfect all the others. The house is wonderfully spacious and the kitchen was so much fun to cook in! We never had to eat out! Claudia was awesome! We will definitely stay again!

Since many guests come from metropolitan areas: There is a steep but well-maintained 100 ft. long driveway. Take it with momentum and don't stop until you reach the top! Front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive cars recommended, but size does not matter. Large mini-vans only with experienced drivers. When there is snow on the ground, four-wheel drive a must, and good tires are always recommended!
