SANTA FE HISTORY – CASA QUINTANA – SANTA FE VACATION RENTAL
Casa Quintana is a beguiling 1100 square foot adobe house on a quiet cul de sac in Santa Fe’s historic San Francisco Street district, an easy walk to the plaza. It is one of Rancho Roybal’s three Santa Fe vacation rentals.
Quintana street was named after the Quintana brothers who settled the area in the 1920’s, selling their farmland in the north and coming to “La Villa Royal” or the “Royal City” as Santa Fe was then called, to educate their families.
The house was built in the 1930’s by the oldest son, Juan, in the traditional adobe brick, southwestern style. In 1998, Michael Roybal, second cousin to Juan, bought and renovated the original house. With utmost care, he retained its unique architectural features, keeping its charm and grace, while bringing it up to date with modern living. (More Information on Casa Quintana)
