The Historically Significant "Boyle House", listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Barrio de Analco historic district, appears on the earliest known map of Santa Fe, the Urrutia Map of 1767. Its charm features three foot thick adobe walls, hand peeled vigas dating to the 1720's covered with split cedar rajas and hand planed territorial style vigas, all carefully preserved over the centuries. The property is a quick walk to the Plaza, Canyon Road, and the Railyard. A private well provides irrigation for lush outdoor landscaping and patio areas, including fruit trees. The main house features two portals, three bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms, a spacious living room, an updated "farm kitchen" with new appliances, laundry room, and a garage. Included is an attached 2-bedroom, 1 bath apartment with garage and an additional two story, 1 bedroom, 1 bath studio. BCD zoning and separate metering of all three units allows for greater flexibility. The current owners were given an award for historic stewardship by the Historic Santa Fe Foundation in 2019. New research suggests the house belonged to Bernadino Sena, a renowned blacksmith, landowner, and fundraiser for San Miguel church in the 1700's. Based upon archeological findings, some portions of the house may possibly date before the Pueblo Revolt of 1680. For the historical purist this is a unique opportunity to become a steward of an early part of Santa Fe's history, and to sustain and preserve this historic house now and into the future..
