    About this Property

    Simply charming Lamy Rail House cradled in the heart of northern New Mexico's historic railway junction! Originally built in 2001 as an artist studio, this sweet abode has, over the years, housed creatives (including a blacksmith and painter) and many visitors of this peaceful, historic town. The 1,098+/- square foot Rail House sits on a spacious, 1-acre lot directly across from Lamy's lush wetlands and well traveled train tracks-the Amtrak still passes through twice a day! The main living space has a cozy living room area positioned between two "bedroom" spaces. Currently, bedrooms are separated with long curtains but could easily be configured into more private spaces. Textured concrete floors throughout help tell the story of this gem's artful history and striking, exposed vaulted ceilings allow light to fill the space. A well provisioned kitchen, adorned with wood-burning stove, is a wonderful place to gather before enjoying sunrises, sunsets, or dark, starry night skies on either of the two irresistible open framed porch spaces. Just beyond the kitchen is a secluded loft, which serves to host visitors or could be bonus storage space. Other notable mentions include sights to the west of the Mission Chapel of Our Lady of light (believed to have been constructed in 1926) from nearly every room of the Rail House. A one minute stroll to the east leads to other familiar landmarks including the treasured Legal Tender Saloon and the Lamy Depot. Greater surroundings include convenient access to the spectacular Galisteo Basin Preserve, rich with hiking/biking trails and plenty of land to roam by foot or horseback. Lamy's mighty history began in 1879 when the Santa Fe Railroad laid its tracks through New Mexico. The Lamy Rail House is the supreme intersection of history, tranquility and charm-all just 18 miles from downtown Santa Fe!
