Enjoy charm, comfort and convenience when you visit Casa de la Luz ('House of Light'). This beautiful home on a lovely, quiet hill is just 7 blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza. This house boasts all the features of a classic adobe (vigas, beams, latillas, hand-troweled plastered walls, Saltillo tile, Mexican tile backslashes and accents, tin work and old wooden doors) however it feels light and modern, unlike many traditional homes. Perhaps its most unique aspect is the combination of a serene, peaceful setting in such close proximity to the color and excitement of downtown Santa Fe. What a pleasure to stroll down the hill to shop, dine and sight-see, with the option of returning to your quiet retreat whenever you tire of the bustle. And none of the hassle of driving or parking!
The house is decorated with original local art and hand crafted furnishings, and offers amenities for every season. In winter, get cozy by the wood burning fireplace, and in the warmer months, enjoy the many inviting outdoor spaces, including a balcony with wisteria trellis, a garden deck and a private walled terrace.
This newer-construction adobe boasts a great floor plan. The living room with fireplace, dining area and kitchen all open on to one another. These rooms, along with the mater bedroom with king size bed and full bath are on the first floor. On the lower level, there is a large open suite, including a semi-private sleeping alcove with king bed, a full bathroom and a sitting area opening onto a private garden. This sitting area has a futon couch which converts into a bed for two more guests.
With 1600 square feet, the home is large enough to offer privacy for all without losing its intimate feel. Amenities include 3 flat-screen T.V.'s with cable, high-speed wireless internet, dishwasher, washer, dryer and air-conditioning. There is a one car garage with parking available for a second car. Special Note: This property has a permit from the City of Santa Fe for short-term rentals, Permit # 11-00104264. Enjoy the peace of mind that your rental will not be interrupted by the City as it enforces against properties that do not have City permits.
