About the property

Two Bedroom In Rural Setting Near Santa Fe Opera

This classic Santa Fe style adobe home--dubbed Rancho Pequeno-- is on a one acre, landscaped lot on the main road through the rural valley of Tesuque just seven miles from the Santa Fe Plaza and two miles from the Santa Fe Opera. Originally designed and built by the famous adobe architect, Myrtle Stedman, it was fully restored in 2007 and features carved and hand-painted vigas, talavera tiles, antique furnishings, and two patios. It is a wonderful, peaceful setting but within minutes of all that Santa Fe and its region has to offer.

The large master bedroom has a king-sized bed and direct access to a small, enclosed patio. The small second bedroom has a very comfortable, Cal-king sized sofa bed and also doubles as a media room with a large-screen TV. There is also a study/dressing room that has space for a toddler bed or portable crib.

The beauty of the rural setting and the landscaping is at its best during the summer and fall months--when mornings and evenings are cool and afternoons are bright and sunny but seldom very hot. The main patio--as well as the walled patio off of the master bedroom--are lovely places for meals or for reading.

The property has been beautifully landscaped and offers plenty of space for kids to run around. A separate (but unheated) building behind the main house provides a playroom just for kids.

About Dan Morrow

My family and I fell in love with the Tesuque area just outside Santa Fe and bought a vacation home there in 2003. The entire region is such a great place for vacations. (The above photo shows my family in the Valle Grande in the Jemez Mountains, which are just about 45 minutes to the west.)

When a unique abobe home came on the market in 2006, we bought it and spent a lot of time restoring and furnishing it as a guest house and rental property.

Why Dan Morrow chose New Mexico

The Tesuque valley is in the only area near Santa Fe with many natural deciduous trees and a very rural ambience. The property, called Rancho Pequeno, offers a quiet retreat but still easy access to all of the attractions of the Santa Fe area. Getting into the restaurants and galleries in town--or to the opera in the summer--takes only a few minutes. And it's also easy to get onto the main highway and then to the Sangre de Christo mountains to the east, to Los Alamos and the Jemez Mountains to the west, or to Taos to the north. For those who want to take advantage of the many outdoor activities in the area, Rancho Pequeno is perfect!

What makes this house unique

The one acre of large deciduous trees and beautiful new landscaping--with views to the Tesuque Indian Reservation just to the north and to the tall cottonwoods and elm in all of the surrounding properties--provides a setting that is very unusual for the Santa Fe area.

The home itself has all of the charm of historic abobe homes in Santa Fe plus beautiful antique furnishings and delightful art works. And the one acre, landscaped grounds provide room for kids to run around.
