A quiet Marfa retreat fosters creativity and serenity under a star-filled sky in Texas.
The four-acre property on Salgado Street blends seamlessly into the desert landscape with two distinct, modern structures. Dubbed an architectural masterpiece, the hideaway was designed by two different architects, Berkeley-based Rael san Fratello and DUST in Tucson, Arizona.
The first structure features a chef’s kitchen and large living space that opens into a private courtyard and sculpture garden. There is a bedroom and full bathroom, as well as a covered patio off the kitchen, perfect for morning coffee. The second structure houses a studio with a bedroom and master bathroom featuring floor to ceiling windows framing the mountain view. A private garden courtyard provides a quiet place to read, meditate or nap.

Both flooded in natural light, the structures are a study in contrast: organic vs. industrial. The clean, simple lines are appealing and foster creativity and serenity while native plants and water features tie the property to the surrounding desert.
Marfa is a world-renowned art destination, far from the distractions of city life. Known for its star-filled skies, thought-provoking art installations, endless fresh air, and a touch of celebrity, it’s just a short drive to Big Bend National Park.
