$400,000 - TAR/MLS #21612902

Romantic CASA ENCANTA~ a very special offering in the historic heart of the village of Patagonia.  This vintage adobe (c. 1930) has been lovingly refurbished and artfully embellished to a level that makes the heart (of those who truly appreciate vintage) sing.  With two homes (the main Casa, and a Casita), they are presently being operated as an overnight rental and offered for sale as such.  SEE:  Continue renting out both homes, or live in one and rent the other, or easily convert them back into a private residence.  There are many possibilities and life-style opportunities, particularly given that the property is in ultra-popular Patagonia (artists, birders, writers, hikers, hunters+++).

CASA ENCANTA is offered at $400,000~ fully furnished and appointed.  Everything conveys to the new owner, who will immediately benefit from the amazing efforts and attentions that have been poured into this authentic property to bring it to this delightful stage for all to enjoy.  If you’d like to continue using the property as an overnight rental, the property name will convey and deposits for future bookings will be prorated as of close of escrow.  As applicable, a booking history for the past 15 months can also be provided once under contract.

Fully walled, private garden areas in the front and courtyard area are a pleasure.  The 1,150sf Casa includes 2 Bedrooms, Bathroom (w/Laundry), spacious Living area & sunny Kitchen with adjacent Dining Room.  The front Bedroom opens onto the front Entry garden and could be used as an Office to maintain your homes privacy.  The Living area opens onto a side deck, the Kitchen opens to the side garden, and the rear Bedroom opens onto the central courtyard.

Between the homes is a detached and heated Garden Room-Solarium-Studio ~ideal for a multitude of uses.  It is currently set up as a Writing Room for the enjoyment of the Casa guests.

CASITA ENCANTA has a separate Entry from Rothrock Alley and its own small outdoor sitting area.  It’s a newer addition to the rear of the property, and includes a private Bedroom and Bathroom plus a single studio-like Living area that includes some Kitchen features.  The Casita has stairs up to its raised elevation which affords village views and a sense of privacy.  The Casita, as presently configured, does not look onto nor access the main Casa or central courtyard, providing desired privacy for both homes.  A visit to the property will demonstrate that the graceful separation between the two homes can very easily be changed if you’d like to recombine them for use as a single residence once again.   

There are too many other special details, features, finishes and intrigues here to mention; however, the photos (here) and on Casa Encanta’s website are very, very informative.  Take a look and then call La Frontera Realty’s owners, Realtor Kathleen James (520)604-6762 or Broker Gary Retherford (520)604-0897 with all your questions.  This property is privately listed so not available through MLS at this time.
