Location: Conveniently located just off of Hyde Park Road less than 2 miles from the Plaza, this five bedroom, three bathroom home is tastefully furnished with carefully collected art and antiques. The homeowners lived overseas and travelled extensively for years, so this home is furnished with furniture and art from North America, South America, Asia, Europe, Australia and Africa.

The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom. The beds are of premium quality with three king size and four twin bed. In addition, there is a double sleeper sofa in the downstairs den, an extra twin bed, 3 twin rollaway beds and a twin air mattress.

• This home is in a quiet, family neighborhood. If you are looking for a party house, this is not the best home to meet your needs. It is perfect, though, for family reunions and group gatherings. There is space for everyone and it is conveniently located close to the Plaza.
• The home has an exposed staircase that is steep and tiled. Therefore, this house is not well-suited to a family with babies or toddlers. Some elderly people may have difficulty with the stairs, as well, but there are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the upper level to accommodate them safely.
- Minimum age to rent this property is 25 years old.

Facts about Santa Fe:
With a population of 70,000, Santa Fe, which means Holy Faith in Spanish, is New Mexico’s capital as well as the fourth largest city. It is situated at 7,000 feet in the Sangre de Cristo foothills. It’s renowned for its Pueblo-style architecture, and as a creative arts hotbed. Santa Fe is home to over 250 galleries in a two square mile area.
Founded as a Spanish colony in 1610, it has at its heart the traditional Plaza. The surrounding historic district’s crooked streets wind past adobe landmarks like the Palace of the Governors, now home to the New Mexico History Museum. Today, Santa Fe’s unique offerings of art, culture and ancient traditions make it a world-class destination, drawing more than 1 million visitors each year. Santa Fe hosts 40 festivals and fiestas per year.
In 2005, Santa Fe became the first U. S. city to be chosen by UNESCO as a Creative City, one of only nine cities in the world to hold this designation. This creativity is at the heart of the community and is a core value for most local businesses.
The climate in Santa Fe is fantastic. With an average of 325 sunny days each year, Santa Fe has four distinct seasons, each enjoyable in its own way. High in the desert mountains of the southwest, Santa Fe boasts low humidity and pleasant, warm summer days with refreshingly cool summer nights. Winters are beautiful with snow storms punctuated by sunny days. The colors of fall are bright with blooming chamisa and asters, yellow aspens and sweet, crisp air. In spring, the fruit trees bloom and daffodils, tulips and forsythia sprout all over town.
With low humidity, it’s always comfortable to walk around town or to hike the trails close by. Average high temperatures go from 44 degrees in January to 86 degrees in July. Lows vary from 15 in January to 54 in June.
