Beautifully updated craftsman style house on corner lot with mature trees and desert landscaping. This gracious home is a Marfa classic  with enough updating to make the house a comfortable oasis in the desert heat but also retain the charm and character of the original home. A turnkey property,  this 3 bedroom home has an open living and dining room which leads to a completely remodeled kitchen with all stainless appliances, a Fisher/Paykel range, and new fixtures. The cozy front porch opens onto a living room with hardwood floors and impeccable furnishings, perfect for entertaining before dinner with the dining room adjoining. Hardwood floors throughout except for the kitchen which has marmoleum tiled floor for an updated retro look, perfect for the age of the house. The original wood cabinetry and doors have been kept and redone adding a familiar homey touch. The utility room is next to the kitchen and the extra guest bedroom. The guest bedroom has an exterior door and there is also a kitchen door that leads to the carport and garage. A storage area is attached to the garage. The backyard is fenced in with a cedar post fence and has a large wooden deck accessible from the kitchen. A large Mulberry tree shades the deck in the summer and there is a chimenea fora fire for sitting outside on chilly evenings. Tasteful and thoughtful touches throughout the home anticipate all you need to fully enjoy the Marfa experience. The house is made of ceramic block with a frame addition. The house is close enough to all of the restaurants and main street to walk or bike.

The landscaping is low maintenance desert plantings accentuating the many mature trees on the property. A large Pecan tree dominates the corner of the front yard along with an apricot tree, a blue cedar and Palo Verde surrounded by yuccas and cacti.
