About this listing
Mesa Craftsman is a truly beautiful, recently restored craftsman from the early 1900's. Rooms are large and accented by detailed woodwork, all of which has been preserved in its original state. Most of the furniture has been handmade made right here in Marfa, TX.
Mesa Craftsman is furnished in an intentionally spare style, with locally handmade pieces. These modernize the structure of the house, which has been preserved exactly in its original state (floors from 1903, detailed wall moldings, etc). The two front rooms are grand and stately- a living room connected to a dining room. There is a master suite which includes a really, really comfortable king bed, private seating area, private bathroom, and French doors leading out onto the front porch. The second bedroom has an equally comfortable queen bed. The kitchen was recently remodeled with custom-designed counter tops and steel frame open shelving.

The neighborhood is quiet and quaint. Mesa Craftsman borders the edge of town, making it easy to take sunset walks along the historic Bright Ranch, yet it's just up the hill from all the major attractions- a five minute walk to the coffee shop, ten minutes max to anywhere else you need to go.
Other things to note
There is no a/c at the moment. Most people who live in Marfa don't use air conditioning anyway, since it's actually really easy to keep a house cool in the desert. Simply open windows and turn on fans in the evening so as to push hot air put and draw cool air in, then shit windows in the morning to trap cool air inside. Repeat each morning and evening.
There is no dishwasher, so dishes must be washed by hand!
The cleaning fee covers basic turnover of the house. It is important that you wash all your dishes and clean up after yourself as you leave the house. If the house is left in unacceptable condition, you will charged extra out of your deposit to compensate the house manager for her time.
