About the property

Super Comfortable, 1 Bedroom With 2 Private Patios, Heart Of Historic Santa Fe

This private Territorial style casita rests on a large, gated property off Historic Old Santa Fe Trail. The charming space features a spacious king bedroom, a living room with a kiva fireplace, a full chef's kitchen, tile floors, a washer/dryer and 2 private patios. While surrounded by the peaceful and vast New Mexico landscape, you are only a picturesque walk to Canyon Road, downtown and the historic Plaza for food, shopping, galleries, music & all the culture Santa Fe has to offer!

About your place:

Built in 1929, the property, including the casita, has been well maintained by our family for 3 generations. This hidden gem’s interior is thoughtfully decorated with an inspired mix of historic elegance and modern luxury with walls covered in original artwork. The many windows create a light and airy atmosphere. The three exterior doors lead to the two private rose garden patios for your exclusive use.

The interior is complete with Saltillo tile floors, a spacious living room with a comfy couch that has a pull out queen bed and kiva fireplace, an additional sitting room with a pullout full size sofa bed, a sizeable bedroom with a king size mattress (Stearns and Foster) with 700 thread count sheets, a surprisingly large walk-in closet, a full bath with luxury linens, and a well-equipped kitchen suitable for fine cooking.

The modern kitchen includes a Bosch refrigerator, microwave and electric stove, Kenmore dishwasher, a large assortment of pots, pans and cookware, beautiful dinner and glass ware, Keurig, drip, French Press and Italian espresso coffee makers, and a Bosch washer and dryer. The intricate wooden dining table seats 4 comfortably.

Setup as the ultimate retreat, the casita is equipped with high-speed Internet, Apple TV, Netflix and a DVD player for both flat screen televisions setup in the living room and bedroom. There is also a stereo for CD's, AM/FM radio and MP3 players. All windows have wooden blinds and curtains for those restful times when you need it dark and cozy.

What really sets this casita apart are the two private rose garden patios for your exclusive use. The patios include a traditional portal with a covered full-size dining table to seat 6, a sunlit smaller table and chairs to seat 4, two lounge chairs, an outdoor fireplace and a BBQ grill. The patios have partial views of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and are perfect for lounging, grilling and dining.

Every time you drive through the gate, it feels like you are way out in the New Mexican landscape. But, oops!, forgot that bottle of wine?… There's a gourmet food and wine shop literally down the street! We think you will LOVE IT and understand why New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment when you experience the unique, rustic beauty of the high desert, its cobalt skies and extraordinary sunsets, while staying in this perfect Southwest casita.

About L.N. Harvey, Owner

Our family has roots in Santa Fe going back to the 1800's, much of it spent on this incredible family property. We are avid travelers; we especially love Italy, the Pacific Northwest, Latin America, NYC and Africa, and have ranged as far from home as Antarctica… but we always love to come home to New Mexico. We are closely involved in the Santa Fe Arts community, and always happy to share our knowledge and lifelong experience with the area to help you enjoy your stay.

L.N. Harvey, Owner purchased this house in 1950

Why L.N. Harvey, Owner chose Santa Fe

Our property is perfectly located to enjoy all that Santa Fe has to offer, yet very private and peaceful. Our family has lived in the main house (built in 1929) for generations and meticulously cared for the property, including the casita. It is a great place to get a sense of Santa Fe's history & geography. We have easy scenic access to the mountains, so it's an excellent base for exploring the town or the wilderness.

What makes this house unique

Every time you drive through the gate, it feels like you are way out in the New Mexican landscape. As you leave the property you realize you are just up from the plaza, around the corner from the museums and canyon road or poised to head up into the mountains! We think you will LOVE IT!

This casita is perfectly located and easily accessible. The owners have put such attention to detail and it shows in every way. They've made it extremely comfortable and immaculately clean. We could not have been happier.

Beautiful, private sanctuary on a historic estate.

  • 5 of 5

I loved, loved, loved staying at this lovely casita for six months! A real feel for old Santa Fe - quiet and peaceful in a beautiful area. The casita is charming and filled with original artwork by the owner and other local artists. I loved the beautiful outdoor space. This casita is a real gem!

We didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were here for close to 2 weeks over Christmas and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location is perfect -- just a short drive from the Plaza and walking distance from museums. The casita is situated on a very large gated property but is very private with its own fenced yard. It's cozy, beautifully decorated and stocked with everything one could possibly need. We can't say enough about Noel and Gabriel. They are incredibly thoughtful and kind hosts who want you to love Santa Fe and its history as much as they do. We highly recommend the house and will most definitely be back.

Charming and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is indeed a lovely little house, which we really enjoyed -- very well equipped, excellent support from the owner, and lots of beautiful things to look at. It seems far out of town, but it's only a 30-minute walk to the Plaza (and 15 minutes to the farthest museum on Museum Hill).

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay - loved it! From the gorgeous decor to the thoughtfully stocked kitchen, there's no place else I'd rather stay in Santa Fe. It's secluded and safe, but so close to museums and downtown. They thought of everything when setting up the casita and if I could live there, I would!

Great Romantic Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Santa Fe, and this casita was perfect. It is close to the Santa Fe Plaza, but is still secluded and private. We had a relaxing time and the kitchen had everything we needed for a romantic dinner. The garden area offered a great space for morning coffee. We love spending time in Santa Fe and this location is perfect for site seeing. We will definitely come back.

The property is in the old historic eastside of Santa Fe. This highly desired location is picturesque, quiet and very convenient to downtown. Just a few steps out the door you will be in the heart of New Mexico culture. A 30min beautiful walk directly down Old Santa Fe Trail will take you to Downtown Santa Fe and the historic Plaza with its world-renowned restaurants, shopping, galleries, museums, music and rich culture. Note, coming back from town is a bit of an uphill hike. Also toward town, the legendary Canyon Road arts district is only 1.2 miles away offering another picturesque 20min walk through the oldest part of town. In the other direction a .4-mile/9min scenic walk takes you to Museum Hill, home to the Museum of International Folk Art, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, the Museum of Spanish Art and Culture, the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, the delicious Museum Hill Café and the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens. For adventurers, numerous hiking and mountain biking trails are just up the road and skiing at the Santa Fe Ski Basin is a 35-minute drive.

Additionally Kaune's Neighborhood Market, a charming gourmet grocery store, is a quick 3min drive or 22min walk from the casita.

You will love our well-appointed casita any time of the year. Santa Fe has many summer events to highlight the rich cultural mixing that is Santa Fe, including the International Folk Art Market (a short 9min walk away), the world-class Santa Fe Opera, Spanish Market, Indian Market, weekly Farmer’s Market and many more. The fall is quite spectacular with the smell of roasting chili perfuming the streets. It’s the perfect time to hike while the aspens and foliage are changing color throughout the city. In the winter months you’ll find Santa Fe lit by farolitos at night. By day you can enjoy breathtaking skiing, winter wonderland snowshoeing, and take part in numerous, festive holiday events. Finally, spring brings new growth and fantastic weather for hiking, biking or horseback riding in the great outdoors. Whether it’s taking an art or cooking class, browsing the galleries, checking out local bands and nightlife, relaxing at a spa, or just enjoying your getaway and lounging in the casita, there is always something fun to do in Santa Fe. Additionally, the owners are a great resource for suggestions on activities, dining, and shopping and have provided an extremely informative book in the casita.

How to get around:

Off-street and secure parking makes it easy to have a car at our casita. We are only a 7 min drive from the center of downtown Santa Fe. If you prefer to leave your car at home and enjoy walking, it is also a great area to walk just about anywhere. It is an easy 30min walk to downtown and Canyon Road with shops and restaurants (notably a bit harder and uphill on the way home) and a 9min walk to Museum Hill. Santa Fe Capital Cab (Download the app from itunes) will pick up and drop off just about anywhere like a local Uber. Uber is also active and available anywhere in Santa Fe. There is also public transportation including a free "blue bus" that picks up a short walk from the casita down Old Santa Fe Trail. The “blue bus” provides access to Santa Fe and surrounding areas as well as free rides to Taos, Tesuque etc. If you are in town for the Santa Fe Opera or any Art Market the shuttles meet you just down the road at the Capital building parking lot.
