A great location for the right person/s interested in off-grid New Mexico rural living, and who appreciate a warm, comfortable, bright, simple dwelling space. This is a wonderful, one of a kind, rustic, idiosyncratic, hand made and hands-on, owner built straw bale and frame home on ten breath taking acres in the Ortiz Mountains south of Santa Fe, NM. It's 45 minutes to Santa Fe; 60 minutes to Albuquerque. Also, you will be only a stone's throw from another unique and special community, Madrid, NM, with its restaurants, bars, galleries and Old West history. The house has abundant natural light throughout, super insulated R-50, 20" thick walls providing terrific heat insulation and warm sound insulating properties as well. The location on the south facing slope of Cerro Chato offers ideal solar gain for both photovoltaic (active solar) electricity generation, and for passive solar greenroom warmth and indoor gardening potential. The home enjoys the spectacular open spaciousness of 180 degree panoramic vistas of the Ortiz, Sandia, and Jemez Mountains, and vast western views of Mount Taylor, El Cabazon and La Bajada Mesa. Newer propanel metal roof, solar panels and battery bank. Private well and 5000 gallons water storage. This is a great opportunity to get off grid in a wonderful two bedroom, one full bath, ~1026 square foot home on 10 high vista acres.
