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. Two bedrooms one with a king bed and one with two twin beds. Each bedroom has its own bath with hand-painted Talavera tile.

What makes this house unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Ah-h-h, Casa Tierra. You speak to our artistic side...
Comfortable. Homey. Beautiful. Perfect for two couples!
Two nights we knew (!) we couldn't find a restaurant as quiet and beautiful, so we "ate in" with a fire in the kiva fireplace.
Ah, Casa Tierra. We will always remember you!
