Want to Live Self Sufficiently? Here’s Your Chance!! SOLD!!

The hard work has been done here – you can move in and take advantage of all the thought that has gone in to making living off the grid easy.  Solar panels, water catchment systems (and a well too, don’t worry!)) wood heat (with propane backup) all add up to the experience of getting away from it all.  The house is nestled in on the forested mountainside, with southern exposure and gorgeous views.  One car detached garage up top, along with a work/storage area, and a hobbit hole.  Gardens drape down the hill.  At the bottom is a large workshop space and an enormous root cellar.  Too many features and details to  go over here – call for more information, or to schedule a showing.

Comments:  This is an amazing renovation of a marvelous adobe and rock home.  The expert craftsmanship employed here shows right down to the nooks and crannies.   Wait  til you see how thick the walls are, and how innately comforting it feels to be surrounded by them.  Spacious open floor plan has all the elements to make the space feel cozy without feeling confined.   The huge master bedroom is separate from the rest of the house, with cathedral ceilings, brick floors, and sunny southern windows that look out to
 interior courtyard views.   You could live in this room alone!  The loft is an added touch – a great place for an office and a den (it’s big enough for both) , or for a kids play space, or ???  Two large bedrooms with a shared bath – one is accessible from outside, which would make it a great office space.  Spacious, gracious covered decks out back offer outdoor living possibilities.   Go for a walk around the property – it’s a sweet parcel with a hill to the south, and a walkway up behind the house to an open pasture area.  Horses and critters will feel as at home as you will here.  A creek bisects the property, and a dispensa offers yet more opportunities for workshop space or guesthouse, with its own kiva fireplace.  This property has been upgraded with all the hard work – now it needs love to make it home….
