Casa Viga Grande (The House-with-the-Massive-Beams) is tucked into a historically authentic and quiet neighborhood above Canyon Road --Santa Fe's prestigious art and gallery district. Winding, narrow streets are reminiscent of Old Europe.
This air-conditioned 1600 square foot Southwest Style Casa offers all the conveniences and charm of contemporary Santa Fe. The spaciousness of high, massive, viga-beam ceilings provide a counterpoint to the rich detail of decor. Everywhere, fine original art and thoughtfully placed artifacts meet the eye.
One uniquely appealing aspect of Viga Grande is the layout. Two completely separate and spacious bedroom suites each have their own private stone-tiled baths. As such, two couples find the equivalency between suites to be appealing. A king bed in one suite can be transformed into two twin beds, providing optimal flexibility for couples and families. While one suite is more spacious internally; the other opens out onto its own private patio.
The well appointed kitchen features state-of-the-art appliances; double french doors unite the dining area with a second very private patio and gated garden.
The two bathrooms are beautiful and modern, with high-end tile and fixtures. The master bath has two sinks, a separate double-headed shower, and a large jacuzzi-style tub.
A museum-brick drive greets guests as they enter the property --which is virtually hidden behind a hand-forged iron gate. There is off-street parking for two-to-three vehicles.
Once in the famed Canyon Road gallery district of Santa Fe, the 3 minute drive (or 15 minute walk) to Viga Grande begins by following the historically soulful and nourishing Acequia Madre waterway (lovingly referred to by locals as 'The Mother Ditch') and then wending uphill through some of Santa Fe's most charming residential areas.
For guests wishing to visit the historic Plaza, a private parking space is reserved for you at the ColorfulSantaFe offices -- just 3 blocks (a five-minute stroll) from all that the historic Plaza has to offer.
A free shuttle is also available on Canyon Road, making it easy to explore many other locations in Santa Fe -- including the Railyard District with its plentiful shops and up-scale contemporary galleries, restaurants, and farmers market.
Take in all that Santa Fe has to offer -- and live like a local!
