Ideal place for a comfortable time with beautiful views of the whole area

This spacious one bedroom apartment (1400 sq.ft.) in an old Church, perched atop a steep hill looking down on the town of Silver City, Boston Hill, and out at the surrounding mountains is a wonderful, restful, well-appointed apartment. The listing and photographs of the interior are accurate, but don't quite do it justice. Every room and aspect are beautifully finished and furnished (an ample kitchen, a dining and living room area, a bath and a half, and a big bedroom which looks out at the mountains) and lovely artwork adorns every wall. It was immaculately clean and well maintained as well. The grounds are adequate but not a plus by themselves. It is the views in every direction which make the outside special. It is high up and a steep climb on foot from downtown, about a half hour walk. It is less far and steep over to the University, Western New Mexico
The owner is great. She grew up in Silver City and is a wonderful source of information about the area. Now a real estate broker, she lives in the other half of the old Church House. This is a plus as she is very non-intrusive but extremely helpful.
I would definitely recommend this place to a friend or relative, if the distance to town and the hills aren't a barrier. The views and the quiet more than make up for any inconvenience that distance might present.
We did a lot while there. I would recommend the following Restaurants (The Curious Kumquat, Sheveks, Vicki's Eatery, the Buckhorn Saloon in Pinos Altos, Diane's Bakery, the Kountry Kitchen, and Tres Rosates). There are many good coffee shops and a treasure trove of good artist shops of all kinds, The Food Coop is a great place to shop for provisions. We did a good bit of hiking and museum looking, including the Deming Museum, the Anthropology Museum at the University, Fort Bayard, Rockhound State Park, City of Rocks, and the Gila River Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary. Bear Mountain Lodge is also a great place to visit, some meals can be scheduled, and a beautiful art shop. The General Store in Hillsboro is also a special funky place with excellent food.
It was good for us--top to bottom.
