This two bedroom, one bath, modern New Mexico home sits on top of the hills five miles north of Santa Fe, NM. Complete with kitchen, fireplace and porch-portal. Great views of the mountains. Birds abound along with peace and quiet, sunsets and sunrises. Owner is on-site, loves to host guests and is ready to answer any questions about the area.
I am retired, living in Santa Fe by way of Chicago. I live on the property in a nearby home.
Terry Brunner purchased this house in 2006
I love this particular property because I enjoy Santa Fe and love the views of the hills and mountains around us. The site is close to Santa Fe and close to all access points to Taos, Los Alamos and all of Northern New Mexico.
This property provides a nice, quiet retreat to get away from it all.
We stayed here with my children and it was wonderful. You really get a feeling of New Mexico living, surrounded by beautiful sunsets, purple mountains and lovely evenings out on the porch. The home is fabulous and well appointed. There is plenty to explore for the kids outside, and I enjoyed being able to have breakfast and some dinners comfortably at home after a day of sites and shopping. We were a quick and easy drive into Santa Fe and elsewhere, where there is an Albertsons grocery as well. The pull-out couch allows the children to each have a bed, or some nights they were fine sleeping in the larger bedroom. The owner showed my son how to fly-fish, and his dog was a daily delight. I would rent a 4-wheel drive vehicle to get to this home.
A group of us come to Santa Fe on our annual girls trip. We are so happy that we found this property! The views are breath taking. You are far enough out of town to enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to get a martini at Vanessies in mere minutes. This property is very pet friendly. There is literally a trail that you can catch right off the driveway. We walked to Tesuque Village Market with our dogs a couple of mornings for the amazing Huevos Rancheros. We will definitely be back for next years girls trip! Terry, the owner, is very friendly and accommodating. He made sure we had everything we needed (firewood, kindling, coffee, books etc) and was a great storyteller!
What a find THIS one was! Bauhaus-meets-adobe designed by noted Chicago architect, James Nagle. All one level. High end finishes, appliances, and furnishings. Wood burning fireplace. Concrete floor in one bedroom w/radiant heat. Not one detail was overlooked; everything provided: cookware, coffee maker, hair dryer, washer & dryer. So comfortable.
And the VIEWS! They go on forever. You can literally see Colorado (and three different mountain ranges) from the enormous long portal furnished w/a table, chairs, a grill, a small refrigerator and two hummingbird feeders. We spent mornings on the portal w/our coffee watching hummingbirds, taking in the views and clean fresh air, leaving only to visit friends or pick up necessities. Who needs The Plaza with a peaceful mountain retreat like this? If you want/need to go into town, it's a quick and easy 15-20 min. drive. Take one of the two provided flashlights if you're returning after dark. There are no city street lights in the mountains and you have to walk from your car to the casita.
The photos of this casita do not do it justice. It is elegant yet relaxed.
The landlord/owner is intelligent, friendly and helpful if you have questions regarding restaurants, grocery stores, hiking trails, etc.
Located 5 miles from the Santa Fe plaza this home has views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Santa Fe Opera. The small village of Tesuque and the Tesuque Market/Restaurant is located a mile's walk or drive. All Santa Fe attractions are within a 10-20 minute drive from the home including museums, art galleries, restaurants, historical sites, and the Santa Fe Ski Area
