What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

This home has R15 and R30 insulation in the walls and ceiling. It faces south and has incredible solar gain in the winter which is stored in the tile floors throughout. There are very few small windows on the north side to reduce heat loss in the winter. There is a rain catchment system that has 7,500 gallons of storage which supplies the entire house with all its water needs. The water has a 5 stage filtering system including UV light that ensures it is safe for consumption. All of the appliances are water efficient. For the yard there is well water, so no need to worry about using your stored water for that.

Neighborhood Description

Laguna Vista is an eclectic rural community with an elevation averaging about 7,400 feet. There are 300 properties, but many are still undeveloped and most owners are not full time residents. Homes range in size from 6,000 sq. ft. to small cabins in the woods. There is a community center and a volunteer fire department amongst the homes.

Market Area

Chama is the closest town with about 1,200 residents. There is a good grocery/hardware store, shops, gas stations and coffee shops.

School District

The Chama Valley has 2 elementary schools and a middle/high school.


The Chama Valley is a predominantly Hispanic community with deep historical ties to New Mexico's historic traditions.

Chama lies just south of the Colorado border with its extensive mountains.
