Description

La Casa de La Esquela

Welcome to your own private desert resort. This 5-bedroom family home overlooking the Rio Grande Valley, Jemez Mountains, and the Black Mesa includes an outdoor hot tub, indoor sauna, private flagstone patio, vine-covered pergola, a rock goldfish pond, custom-made iron gates, and breathtaking views from nearly every window.

Designed by the Chicago architect William Keck in 1942, the
passive-solar building originally was the Los Alamos schoolhouse (where the children of the Manhattan Project studied) before being moved to this spur of land above the Rio Grande.

The modern kitchen includes a double oven and a copper-hooded restaurant-style stove, while the dining room seats 12 and has a massive stone gas fireplace. Navajo rugs, art pieces, and paintings decorate the house, which includes a sunny living room (also with a gas fireplace) and a private study, while the bedrooms and four full bathrooms are each furnished in a distinct style. A sun room leads out to the patio, hot tub and views. Both wings have their own master bedroom with private bath, as well as two washers and dryers.

We can be flexible on the check in/out days. Please let us know your preference and if we have availability we will certainly accommodate your request.

The home is cooled by a traditional New Mexican swamp cooler which brings moisture into the dry air. All bedrooms, kitchen and game area have ceiling fans. The TV has Netflix, Amazon Prime movies and a few news channels, there is no cable.



A short stroll through the cottonwoods takes you to the Rio Grande; the famous El Santuario de Chimayo is 15 minutes away, Sante Fe is a beautiful 25-minute drive, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is 30 minutes away, and Taos lies 45 minutes to the north as does Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch. Three ski areas are in the vicinity as well. Ski Santa Fe is 1 hour, Ski Taos is 1.5 hours, Ski Pajarito is 1 hour. But you may want to stay home and enjoy the views and walk the short half mile to the river. The path along the river is approximately 3 miles round trip.

Espanola/Santa Fe housr

Our stay was excellent; the location was somewhat distant from Santa Fe but we figured it out and the house was worth the drive”

La Casa de La Escuela a Great Family Retreat

New Mexico is the Land of Enchantment and La Casa de La Escuela is placed in the center of that enchantment. This is the old school house from the Manhatten Project days at Los Alamos. It has been lovingly restored, maintained, and updated to modern standards. Decorated with charm and style, each room is a delight to the eye and the senses. The lovely grounds call you to the magical vistas of the openness that is quintessential New Mexico. Located between Santa Fe and Taos, close to ski areas, Bandelier National Monument and Los Alamos, day trips for exploration and shopping,education and edification. Its all close at hand and there for your delight. We look forward to returning.”
