Our home is in a beautiful wooded area just north of Santa Fe New Mexico in Tesuque, near the well-known Santa Fe Opera. Although the area could be considered semi – rural, we have great neighbors close by. Our home is on the edge of the national forest with access to hiking trails. The Santa Fe Plaza is just 15 minutes away. Santa Fe is home to hundreds of galleries, museums, cultural resources, historical venues, restaurants and Native American pueblo’s. Santa Fe is equidistant from Albuquerque and Taos, both about an hour away. There are two unique restaurants less than a quarter-mile away, and a grocery store 10 minutes away. Our home is quiet and peaceful, and surrounded by nature.
We have a large old adobe style home on approximately 1 acre. Because we are artists, we have two art studios and an extensive art library. The home has two large bedrooms. We have a seven-year-old black Labrador and a seven-year-old cat. Both are gentle and welcoming. The dog is most comfortable sleeping in the master bedroom, and because it is summer, can stay outside during the day in a fenced yard. We do require our house-sitters be non-smokers. You will have full access to all of the house. We have had housesitters in the past and will leave a comprehensive schedule and information packet. We will leave our yard and property groomed and lawn mowed, so that little or no upkeep is needed. We have a security system that we will explain when you arrive. Our home has multiple outdoor areas for enjoyment and relaxation.
The property has a drip irrigation system for the yard and garden on a timer, but plants in pots will need to be watered a couple of times a week. We have Internet and television. There is plenty of parking for vehicles, but little or no access to public transportation. We would hope that you take the time to enjoy and explore all that Santa Fe and Northern New Mexico to offer.
