Holiday Rental House
We are new to this site, however we have rented our home for the past 8 years. Welcome to your own private desert resort. This 5-bedroom luxury home overlooking the Rio Grande Valley, Jemez Mountains, and the Black Mesa. Includes an outdoor hot tub, outdoor firefit, indoor sauna, private flagstone patio, vine-covered pergola, a rock goldfish pond, custom-made iron gates, and breathtaking views from nearly every window. Designed by the Chicago architect William Keck in 1942, the passive-solar building originally was the Los Alamos schoolhouse (where the children of the Manhattan Project studied) before being moved to this spur of land above the Rio Grande.

The modern kitchen includes a double oven and a copper-hooded restaurant-style stove, while the dining room seats 12 and has a massive stone fireplace. Navajo rugs, art pieces, and paintings decorate the house, which includes a sunny living room (also with a fireplace) and a private study, while the bedrooms and four full bathrooms are each furnished in a distinct style. A sun room leads out to the patio, hot tub and views. Both wings have their own master bedroom with private bath, as well as a washer dryer. A short stroll through the cottonwoods takes you to the Rio Grande; the famous El Santuario de Chimayo is 15 minutes away, Santa Fe is a beautiful 25-minute drive, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is 30 minutes away, and Taos lies 45 minutes to the north as does Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch. Three ski areas are in the vicinity as well. But you may want to stay home and enjoy the views. We own and operate a Professional Photography business as well. We specialize in Family and Wedding photography. We WELCOME weddings and parties for an additional event fee of $750 per event. Three night minimum on all events. Cleaning fee is $350. Property protection is $99 for events. More

What a special place! This gorgeous and spacious house--a private compound really--was perched overlooking the Rio Grande Valley; the river was a short pre-dinner stroll away and the mountain views from the hot tub at dawn were wonderful, while the stars at night just as...More

About the neighbourhood
The property is located on a bluff with unobstructed views of Black Mesa. You can enjoy the sunrise over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and watch the sunset over the Jemez mountains from the property. You can talk a stroll down the hill through cottonwoods to the Rio Grande river (1 mile round trip) or continue along the river for a 3 mile round trip walk. Things to do and see- Santa Fe Plaza Railyard attractions Meow Wolf Georgia O Keefe Country - Abiquiu Taos Bandelier National Monument Puye Cliffs Black Mesa Golf - 2 miles from the home Movie Theatre 3 miles from the home
Getting around
We are 25 miles North on a major highway from Santa Fe. You do not need a 4x4 vehicle to get to our property. The major airport ABQ Albuquerque, NM is 1.5 hours from the home. The closest airport is SAF Santa Fe Municipal Airport. While this is a small airport, its good to check for connecting flights as sometimes it is cheaper and better connections from your destination.
