This is a very creative all solar adobe home in the high desert surrounded by gorgeous mountain views, yet within easy reach of the main roads. Enjoy the peace and quiet of pristine surroundings and wonderful hikes from your doorstep as well as many area attractions. Santa Fe is only 42 miles away.

The space
Carson National Forest, BLM land, and Santa Fe Forest are all within 2 miles.
Nearby attractions include the Abiquiu Inn; Georgia O"Keefe house; Ghost Ranch; Abiquiu Lake; Chama river rafting; Christ in the Desert Monastery; Ojo Caliente hot springs and spa; and Ra Paulette caves. The Chama Scenic Railway is 1 hour to the north.
There are patios on three sides so you can always choose sunshine or shade. Each patio offers beautiful views and in summer beautiful gardens and flowers. Indoors is light filled and has 5 window seats from which to enjoy the scenery. Bedding and furniture coverings and rugs are all natural fibers. I receive great joy from both the home and the outdoors and hope visitors will find the same to be true.
The couch is reasonably comfortable and the back cushions are removable should you choose this as an extra bed.
The whole house is yours and from your doorstep you can walk along the El Rito River, or to BLM land or Carson National Forest. Enjoy the profound quiet, watch the Ravens play, listen to birdsong, and enjoy a starry sky or spectacular sunset with a 360 degree New Mexico sky. There are very few bugs so it is comfortable outdoors at any time of the day or night.
Because this is a full solar home, guests are asked to use high draw electrical items such as hairdryer, washing machine, and clothes dryer only during sunshine hours.
I have a separate apartment upstairs with separate entrance. You have total privacy but I'm available if you need anything.

I grew up in a coastal town just south of Boston and have never lost my love of salt air and fresh seafood! I graduated from Emmanuel College and lived in Boston for many years before moving to Maine in order to have a “wilderness” experience, which lasted 3 decades and turned out to be so much more! I moved to New Mexico in 2015 after finally deciding that 6 months of winter was just too long. I love the vibrant dramatic colors and shapes, the vast openness, and the gentle climate. Art and horses have been a part of my life as far back as I can remember, along with a very strong draw to nature. These 3 things have shaped my life. When you visit my home you will see my art, meet a horse and pony, and be surrounded by incredible nature views.
