Territorial, Single Family - Cerrillos, NM
Built in 1892 this old west/territorial style adobe building is an historical landmark and anchor building in Los Cerrillos, NM. It's located just 15 miles S. of Santa Fe off scenic highway 14. Many businesses operated in the building from its inception in 1892 but in 1918 Antonio Simoni purchased it, creating a mercantile store/saloon. It remained in his family until a new owner purchased it in 2014. The building has remained largely unchanged aside from a major cleanout, new septic holding tank and new TPO membrane roof in March 2016. The old hotel rooms on the 2nd floor remain as do the original numbers over doorways. There are high ceilings and original wood plank Floors. Cerrillos has long been a choice location for filmmakers with over 20 feature films and several TV shows. The Simoni Building and town of Cerrillos have been a set/backdrop in several pictures beginning with a Walt Disney production in the late 1950's. The dirt streets and buildings of First and Main are the most popular locations for filming. In the spring of 1988 construction started for the feature film Young Guns. It took 3 weeks to build sets for town scenes. The Simoni building was used extensively in the Young Guns filming and can be seen in John Carpenters "Vampires" film. The building is also a centerpiece for tourists that regularly visit the town. It is truly a unique and rare historic property that may be designated both commercial and residential and awaits your creative stewardship.
