A MORE PERFECT SETTING AND LOCATION SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST IN ALL OF SANTA FE.
THIS IS THE REAL DEAL. THE SANTA FE ARCHETYPE SO OFTEN IMITATED, BUT NEVER DUPLICATED.
A ONE-OF-A-KIND, GENUINE, HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT SANTA FE ORIGINAL!
Just how does one begin to tell a centuries-old story... of color, dust, intrigue, cowboy bar fights, wagon wheels creaking, church bells pleading, beguiling scents, seductive stories and passionate adventures?
Without saying, there are a million such secrets and tales from beckoning ghosts on this particular street – the oldest in America and certainly among the most exciting and compelling – which repeatedly stands out above all other calles and boulevards from lesser travels across the globe. This is Canyon Road – the heart and soul of Santa Fe!
As you pass the famous restaurant Geronimo, swing by El Farol (the oldest bar in town) and stroll by the final art gallery and the fantastic tea/coffee house across the street, the road narrows and a long wall with an inviting archway emerges among tumbling lilacs and rose blossoms. Welcome to 906 Canyon Road...
If these two-foot-thick adobe walls could talk, they’d read like the pages of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez novel. Over one hundred and fifty years of celebration, inspiration, cultural diversity, creativity and imagination have lovingly transformed this historic adobe compound into an enchanting residence of unequaled style, beauty and character.
Awarded “Santa Fe’s Best Remodel in the Historic District” in 1995.
Passing through the main house’s inviting, rose-draped archway and entering the front door is like stepping back in time. A century-and-a-half of perfectly-preserved architectural wonder!
Front Gate of Main Home –
Opens up right onto Historic Canyon Road!
THE GUEST HOUSE...
Tucked behind its own gate, amid age-old fruit trees, lies an adobe guest house built by two Taos Indians in the 1940s... original in structure, passionate in spirit, unbelievably quiet and peaceful. The legend goes that long ago and shortly before their deaths, these two Indians came calling – quite unannounced – one Christmas Eve to dance and drum the night away in utter joy and abandonment. Seated under the courtyard’s ancient pear tree,
one may certainly feel their joy, perhaps even... hear their music.
