About our home

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.

Location:
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.

What is there to do in the Santa Fe Area?
This is a destination that can be enjoyed in all 4 seasons-
Native American Dances and Culture, New Mexican Margaritas, music and Cuisine, Hiking our 12,000 ft. peaks, Kayaking/Rafting the Rio Grande, Skiing/Snowboarding Taos and Santa Fe Ski Valleys and partaking (in the Summer Season) in our World Renowned "Santa Fe Open Air Opera" is a must!!

For the less Sport or Clasical Music inclined:
There is a myriad of World and Indigenous Religions with bases in Santa Fe, as well as Non Religious yet Spiritual Centers, if you feel inclined to explore within, this is a great place to come-

Or if you want to be pampered, our World Famous Spa`s, "Ten Thousand Waves", and "Encantado Spa" as well as many smaller ones, will hit the spot!

Not to mention taking a trip Downtown, walking the picturesque streets of Santa Fe`s famed Contemporary as well as Folkloric Fine Arts Galleries and Sculpture Gardens.
