Do you love the history and charm of the American southwest?
This incredible beauty located in the small town of Hatch, New Mexico is like stepping back in time to the Spanish Colonial era!
This property was built circa 1860 and features 7, 031 total square feet, including a stunning church, a bell tower with two rooms, and a charming main house with 4 bedrooms.
The 2+ acre lot has an adobe wall surrounding it, creating a private compound feel.
The outdoor entertaining area off the home has a kiva fireplace, built in grill, and covered sitting area. Nice!
The interior of the home is rich with historic features including vigas, latilla ceilings, Satilla tile, and wood floors.
The thick adobe walls provide natural insulation from the elements but the buildings also have refrigerated air.
The only let-down in this entire compound is… the kitchen.
It’s not horrible, but compared to the authentic character in the rest of the casa, it’s just meh. They could have gone all out in southwestern Mission style, but nope. Just your run of the mill, builder’s grade kitchen.
But that’s only one room.
The rest of the home is phenomenal.
The compound has a wonderful old mission feel to it.
Now to the church…
This place is exquisite!
But what does one do with an old south western church?
The current owners live in the main house and rent out the church and accompanying guest house as a venue for weddings, retreats, quinceanera’s, special events, and workshops.
How amazing would it be to have this property as a live/work place?
The venerable details are stunning.
The courtyard is a wonderful space for outdoor events.
Have a look inside the guest casita:
The listing says there is room for 20 overnight guests here.
Price for this spectacular Spanish Colonial compound?
