GREAT HOUSE IN BEST LOCATION IN TOWN, 3BR 2BATHS, SLEEPS 2-6

Marfa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

I purchased my house nine years ago; it was in its original form, only seventy-five years older. Since then, it has been re-done, but it maintains its original charm, with hard-wood floors, tall ceilings and windows, and an interesting layout which includes several adjoining doors to allow the entire house to breathe. It's outstanding feature is its proximity to the beautiul Presidio Couny Courthouse which is, basically, right across the street.

The location is nonetheless quiet as it is on a non-through street. A person can walk to the library or several fine eating establishments within minutes or ride a bike. I call it my 'Hopi mesa' because of the intimacy and convenience of the town which is also very interesting as a center for the arts, music, theatre, and local color!

The yard and patio include several cool sitting areas. It is a xeriscaped yard with regional plants and rocks.

The house includes an interesting library with many refererce books on the southwestern US, art books, good fiction, books on spirituality, and a large selction of Spanish novels and texts, some translated into English.

No one will be disappointed with this charming and comfortable dwelling..

Keywords: Charming, fully updated, 1700 square foot home with one queen size bed, one full, one twin. New matresses. House has great windows wood floors, tall ceilings, tremendous comfort and decorum. The gorgeous Presidio County Courthouse is the view from the sunporch. There is a family of great-horned owls living above the house. For readers, there's a great library; for cooks, a full kitchen that's fun to cook in while friends watch from the stools around the large bar (and help?) There is the possiblity for a well behaved dog or kitty. Fenced yard. Also, garage storage space, one bike and so forth. This is a house to fall in love with, as I did.

I am a teacher and a traveler. I have had several 'lives' and long to have a couple more which is why I am allowing others to enjoy my house in my absence. I have just completed a book: Let Go of the Rope about the life and times of living here and there, including lovely Marfa.

Marie Blazek purchased this house in 2003

This is my 'home.' I love Marfa; but I am a rolling stone.

I adore drinking coffee on the front porch, watching a fabulous sun rise, then hours later, drinking a glass of wine, watching the sun set. Of course, there are other interesting activities in between, and later. It's just a fun house in a fun place!

When it comes to visiting Marfa I don't think it's possible to find a better place to stay than this. Everything you could want to get to is within walking distance and getting in and out with your car is very easy. The home is also very cozy with everything you need to have an enjoyable time. I highly recomend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you. It is indeed a great house; I always hate to leave. Then I get to return! I don't know if I like the great horned owls on the tower, or the view of the courthouse from the porch, or the comfort of the house itself the most. All of them I guess. Anyway, thanks and come back soon. MB

Great family gathering!

My husband, 2 boys (4 and 10 yrs), mom, and dog had a wonderful stay at this Marfa home. There was ample room for all of us, and for the boys and dog to spread out. It's a cozy house and served as a warm and welcoming spot to host extended family also staying in town. The kitchen met our needs for cooking family dinners and we enjoyed several relaxed meals on the lovely patio off the kitchen. It's just a wonderful, quintessential Marfa house with space, character, art and in a great location!

Owner's Response: I am always delighted to know that folks enjoyed my great house. I love it too for the same reasons: classic comforts with just enough pizazz and a great location. Good price too.

Marie's home has become my home when annually visiting Marfa for Chinati Weekend. This well located house is configured so that it can comfortably provide accommodations and privacy for several people. The kitchen is well equipped and there are lots of nooks and crannies to read or meditate. The host thoughtfully provides an interesting collection of books to peruse and games to play.

Owner's Response: I have really enjoyed sharing my house (well, sort of) with Joy. She is a welcome guest and an amazing lady.

Notes:
The home is located on the quiet side of the courthouse which is very much like a park; the courthouse is in clear view from the sunporch; it's perfect for morning coffee or dining, and it's very quiet, except for the pair of great horned owls that call at night from above. It is also a great place to throw the frisbee or toss a ball.
