Santa Fe Real Estate: Forgotten But Not Gone!

Every now and then, I encounter a home that is forgotten but not gone. There seems to be something about northern New Mexico architecture that makes live on beyond generations of inhabitants. This abandoned house is an example. It was once a home hand-made of adobe bricks. By adobe, I mean actual mud. Now, there is no longer any roof. And there is no clue if it the roof was flat, pitched or even ever there. Nature has taken over the interior turning the floor into a natural garden of weeds and flowers. It appeared to have been a home with a view. And there is no story other than what I can imagine. Today, it sits quietly on the landscape without a story or a for sale sign. It is forgotten, but not gone! And one thing is for certain, Santa Fe style can last forever.

Emily the remains of that house, is a good example of the saying "They Don't Build Them Like They Use To" :)

Rich, next time you are up our way, give a call and let's get together. Like you, we love discovering these hidden treasures.

Connie, many of our homes in the Historic Eastside and Guadalupe Historic District are made of adobe. Dirt tends to last and it has proven to be very energy efficient.

George, we have builders here who build with adobe and those homes are at a premium over frame.

Debbie, thank you. I know this home could have used a more long lasting floor. Although with the roof gone, I doubt if any thing other than stone or brick would have lasted over the years.

Don't you wish they could talk?  Abandoned homes make me want to sit down inside and write stories about who might have lived there.

I was going to say an author could be greatly inspired there -- but Marge, #10, beat me to it!

Marge, at the rate our technology is changing how we communicate, houses probably will be able to "talk" in the future!

Lottie, we've got to watch Marge... We know houses have stories, we all have so much to tell. thank you for stopping by!

Hi Emily, Adobe is made to last and this house surely proves it.  Forgotten adobe homesteads add to the mystic of the Santa Fe area.
