Casa Duende is perfect for one or two couples or a family with children. The downstairs suite affords privacy from the main floor upstairs and is fully accessible to the outdoor areas. Casa Duende (Soulful) is a serene, lovely mountain home that served as a retreat for writers and artists who have sought the quality of light and quiet repose that this canyon offers. It is set on 3 acres just off paved Barbaria Road leading from the historic Old Santa Fe Trail. This location would appeal to those seeking to enjoy the culture and activities of the downtown Santa Fe area yet want to return to sunset views and complete privacy at day’s end.

A wonderful private home surrounded by pinion and ponderosa trees, rock outcroppings and yet just a 15 minute, 7-mile drive to the Plaza in the center of Santa Fe. Museum Hill is only ten minutes away and a few restaurants as well as a fitness center (El Gancho) is just minutes away. A great location to enjoy nature and have immediate access to hiking trails. It is even possible to walk the arroyo all the way to Canyon Road, the historic art district of Santa Fe. Additionally, for those more aggressive, access to Atalaya Mountain is also within an hour’s hike.

An ideal arrangement for two couples or a family with children. Both bedrooms (upstairs and downstairs) have a queen bed. There is a futon in the downstairs living room for additional sleeping accommodation.

The large windows upstairs afford fabulous views of land and sky and the patios and decks create a nice symmetry for indoor and outdoor living. The open, light-filled living room has a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area opening to a view of sunsets through junipers. Step out onto a private outdoor deck with table, chairs to embrace the outdoors.
