CASA TIERRA (House from the Earth)
Casa Tierra is a newly renovated, authentic adobe Guest-home in a superb location 1 block north of Canyon Road and 4 blocks east of The Plaza. It is located along the Santa Fe River with its walking trails, lush foliage, and life-giving waters. From here the stroll to the center of town is flat, shaded and refreshing.
The walls of this 2 bedroom/2 bath adobe are mudded in the ancient ways of native peoples. It is this historic and lovely hand-applied earthen surface that lends the name: Casa Tierra - House from the Earth.
The authenticity of the adobe construction along with a centralized air conditioning/heating system assures year-round comfort.
Casa Tierra is tucked back off the road and entry is beneath a rare, 150-year-old Cedar-of-Lebanon Tree. Fenced on three sides and nestled among mature trees, outdoor spaces are private and inviting.
Inside this 1200 square foot home, a generous and comfortable living area encompasses fireplace, brick floors, a viga-beam ceiling and original museum quality art. The living room opens onto a granite topped kitchen with a six burner stove. Both bedrooms offer king-or-two-twin-bed sleeping options and each has its own bath with hand-painted Talavera tile.

Years ago we hand-built a now somewhat-celebrated, environmental straw bale home in the Jemez Mountains above Santa Fe. Ten years ago we decided to purchase an in-town pied a'terre--just a small gem-of-a-place in which we could overnight during shopping trips in Santa Fe. Wanting to get the right place in the right location, we engaged in an eight month exhaustive search and ended up purchasing--not one--but two adobe homes in an historic neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Plaza. They became our first guest homes and we settled into this same block to live. During our ten years of strolling Santa Fe streets, we fell in love with a dirt road along the Santa Fe river with cool trails and trickling waters. Suddenly this year and right there, an authentic, rare hand-mudded adobe became available for purchase. We knew instantly it was ours . . . to share with our many repeat guests and new friends as well. And so it came to be: Casa Tierra -- 1 block from Canyon Road and 4 1/2 flat, shady, refreshing blocks to the heart of OLD SANTA FE. An oasis made manifest.
The location of Casa Tierra is superb. One block away is the mile long promenade known as Canyon Road --studded with fine-art galleries, great restaurants, and the soulful historic adobe architecture that is quintessentially Santa Fe. Four blocks to the west is The Plaza -- the heart of downtown Santa Fe with its shopping, museums, convention center . . . and more fine-art galleries and great restaurants. Right out the front door is the living, sparkling, Santa Fe River--with its RiverWalk, shaded nature paths, picnic tables, and falls.
More than that....with it's authentic mudded exterior, folks walking by stop us all the time and ask us about Casa Tierra. We explain that several Santa Fe historians have told us that Casa Tierra is one of only six remaining fully mudded (adobe inside and out!!) homes left in Santa Fe. In short, Casa Tierra is a historic wonder.
Casa Tierra is located 1 block from Canyon Road and 4 blocks from the historic Plaza -- in the heart of the historic district. Walk out your door and be immediately immersed in the great cultural milleau that is Colorful Santa Fe!
