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.
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!
Marfa is an arts community and offers regular exciting plays, films, and music. Frequently they are free!! All within walking distance. There are three small, nearby towns that offer similar events and new adventures at a half-hour drive.
