Property Description

Private Santa Fe Style Estate. This gorgeous 7-acre property, close to Ruidoso, New Mexico has a 2700 SF Earthship home, a 1050 SF Straw Bale guesthouse, a 768 SF shop/studio and 576 SF finished garage. Flagstone walkways and steps interconnect the structures with a large covered split-level flagstone patio. The panoramic views and sunsets are stunning! The energy efficient main home features a stucco exterior, vigas, arched doors, latillas, Saltillo tiled floors, custom tile, stained glass and wood accents. One enters the home through antique Spanish doors and is greeted by an indoor fountain and a large indoor planter with flowers that bloom year round. It has a large modern kitchen with walk-in pantry and breakfast bar. Passive solar heating and solar electric provide most of the heating and electric. The fully automated PV system utilizes four 20-year life maintenance free sealed telecommunication batteries. A Trace inverter and Heliotrope charge controller provide approximately 7000 watts of electricity per day. Utility grid power and an Onan generator can augment the solar electric if needed. A Jotul woodstove and an 80,000 Btu forced air natural gas furnace augment the passive solar heating. The interior temperature never falls below 65 degrees, unheated. The Straw Bale guesthouse features a stucco exterior with post and beam interior, long covered porch, custom oak cabinets, a full bath, and deep-set windows. Would make an excellent office retreat when not entertaining guests. The shop/studio has wooden decks and walkways on three sides with built in workbenches and a half bath. A portion has been used as a recording studio and would also make a very nice office or spare bedroom. Has above ceiling storage via a pull down ladder.

A perfect property for a writer, musician, or horseperson. Or just to enjoy privacy, clean air and magnificent views. This is a truly unique and spectacular property with too many features to detail. Please contact me for more information.
