Nestled in a pinon tree grove, Catch the Wind is a delightfully private, fully appointed family house just waiting for you. Designed for comfort, it's a sweet launchpad for your best Santa Fe vacay!
You will feel as though you've truly come home when you enter the living room of Catch the Wind. The large central fireplace, which goes through to the dining room as well, glows and crackles, while the comfy leather easy chair, loveseat, and sofa urge you to flop down and revel in the pleasure of having no schedule to follow or errands to run. A big HDTV in one corner with DVD and CD players waits to show your favorite movies or the big game (Catch the Wind has satellite channels), but the kids may already be clearing off the coffee table for a lightning round of Jenga. Oh, the choices you must make on vacation!
The sofa in this room folds out to a queen-sized bed for two, just in case you have visitors or the children want to "camp" one night. Of course, they will have to move you first -- chances are that whoever lies down on this couch will be snoozing happily long before bedtime!
All this downtime calls for refreshment, and the cook in your group will be pleased with the kitchen arrangements at Catch the Wind. This house is more than 50 years old, but has been remodeled and refurbished with the latest appliances, leaving only its wonderful "bones"! So you will find wooden floors, stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, a generous breakfast bar with stools for the sous-chefs and chopping squad, and a big double window looking out onto the fragrant, soughing pinons. And on a more practical note, a whole wealth of gadgets, tools, cookware, dishes, and everything else you need to prepare a feast! There's room for two cooks in here, not to mention ankle-biters who have already worked up an appetite in the healthy New Mexico foothills!
When the food is ready, gather the troops in the dining room for an old-fashioned family meal . . . or let people carry their plates to wherever they have settled! That big table also makes a great spot to lay out a thousand-piece jigsaw puzzle, line up all the laptops and tablets, or let the kids go crazy with Legos and Polly Pockets. Catch the Wind is a beloved family house, and everything is sturdy and ready for action!
You may have grand plans to stay up super late the first night, but no matter when you finally stagger off to bed, everyone will be grateful for their choice of beds at Catch the Wind. There are 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and a half-bath, so you don't have to schedule times for everyone to get ready, assembly-line fashion, in the morning. And that's good, because you may just oversleep in the comfort of your new mountain home!
The master suite is a delight, and you will be congratulating yourself again and again for choosing this house as you sink into the decadent comfort of its king-sized bed. Two walls have big windows with soothing woodsy views, and there's a private door out to a little patio just made for two. Sneak a bottle of wine to your room and watch the moon rise!
The master also has a big HDTV, exquisite carved furniture, a nice desk, and an en-suite bath with a vessel sink and both shower and tub. Not to be outdone, the guest room features a king-sized bed and private HDTV too, because why not? This is a sunnier room, with plenty of natural light. It accesses a full bath.
And then there's the third bedroom, the one you will take the most pictures of and probably remember fondly. The queen-sized bed in here is bright and cheery, but not as bright as the beautiful hand-painted furniture! Truly unique, this room enchants children and adults alike. The padded window seat is a special place, great for reading, journaling, and doing absolutely nothing. A full bath serves this bedroom -- with magnificent painted cabinets and nice tiling around the shower and tub. And did we mention that all towels and linens are provided here, plus a washer and dryer? Pack light -- we've got extras and spares of most things!
Catch the Wind has plenty of outdoor space, so you can turn the kids loose to run and yell, while the grown-ups enjoy al fresco dining at the big patio table. A large chiminea holds the promise of s'mores, and privacy walls keep your patio time intimate. There is so much room to breathe here, to stretch out and really relax!
With all this space, it's hard to believe you are just minutes from the Plaza, the Santa Fe Opera, Ski Santa Fe, and all the other area attractions. Enjoy them all -- and then come home to Catch the Wind to catch your breath and recharge for even more adventures! You will love your time here; book today for best availability!
