The house is located in an irreplaceable location where the architecturally significant Presidio Courthouse is your front yard and you will reside on the quiet side of the town square. If you have a dog, he will kiss your boots daily for being in a prime park setting and for his/her frequent walks in this dog friendly town. Once you are in Marfa, you may not have to get in your car due to the intown location. Additionally, the house is next to a beautiful dormant church. Enjoy a morning coffee on the front porch watching the sunrise illuminate the majestic courthouse.
The house has a material benefit of an open design lay-out with glass back doors and high ceilings with hardwood floors throughout. The fireplace that anchors the open living space enables the deflection of the winter chills. Adding to the appeal are a combination of track lighting for illuminating art along with several vintage ceiling light fixtures. A pedestal sink and vintage clawfoot bathtub add charm and character to the home as does the beadboard wall in the bathroom. A new (August 2018) A/C system insures years of maintenance free utility. Included with the home are all appliances including w/d. Stainless Steel fixtures, counters and appliances add a modern clean feel to the kitchen and makes for very convenient usage. Additionally, the kitchen is located next to the doors to the outside covered porch make outdoor dining a breeze. An on demand water heater is another plus with this beautifully updated classic marfa home.
The covered outdoor porch with a built in masonry wood stove looks out onto a mature garden of native desert plants with cacti and trees. Hardscaping with stone paths wind through the thoughtfully curated garden and an irrigation system makes sure the foliage is in optimal condition. A row of desert willow lines the back wall of the yard and a lovely Blue Atlas Cedar provides a nice focal point as well. Mature Spanish Dagger Yuccas line the perimeter wall near the outdoor shower adding to the enjoyment of the home. Blue agave help define the northern border of the house. A wonderful place to spend time and entertain in the delightfully cool Marfa evenings.
As an interesting note, the house is very comparably priced to other homes in Marfa with similar features in very desirable locations.
It rare that a home of this scarcity becomes available.
