Creation of this home:
This home was built by a French Couple who fell in love with Santa Fe, N.Mexico`s very unique Architecture and Culture and the breathtaking Blue Skied, High Altitude Desert Landscapes. So much so, that they built this home on large acreage, influenced by the Rustic Romance of the South and East African Outback homes. They have children and grandchildren. This home was built with privacy in mind, just for them, the grandparents.
It was then bought by a European who now keeps it as a rental and suggests it is perfect for a single person or a couple.
Yet as you will read, should family or friends visit, this house can accommodate short visits for more people to stay, this is only ok for visits less than a week; as this home is not built for more than 2 people long term and only has 1 Master Bathroom.
Set in a small 9 home gated community South of Santa Fe. This home sits in its own secluded Valley only 5 min. drive from Restaurants, Shopping & Supermarket and 13 miles from Downtown Santa Fe.
What the home feels like:
It is a very Intimate house, yet Spacious and Airy- It is unique for the 2,500 sq ft 3 sided wrap around screened portal with 14ft slanting ceilings. The house is a one bedroom one bath, with two enormous Teak Wood outdoor beds on the portal, to be enjoyed usually 7 months of the year, falling asleep under the stars yet safe behind the screens from any insects- and two queen sofa beds in the living room- So it does sleep as per sleeping areas, maximum 10 people (just remember this is a 1 bathroom home). Excluding the portal, it is 1,700 sq ft inside space. The home was diamond finish plastered and is being updated in 2010 and 2011. Yet very livable as you can see from the images, while we are working on it.
The home has a Contemporary, Minimal feel- this is a Sexy Indoor / Outdoor Living house. Perfect for a single person working from home, like writers, artists, or a couple who love exploring the South West and want to have a unique pad to reflect and relax in.
