Quiet Placitas, a quick drive from I-25!

Secluded home with two sides on National Forest!

Adobe home with
passive solar greenhouse

2 bedroom, 1 bath home

This home (pictured to the right and below) is a generously-sized 2 bedroom, 1 bath home minutes from I-25. Approximately 1,700 square feet.

The home has a large, walled front patio and many large windows that take advantage of the expansive, undisturbed views to the northwest. It sits on approximately 5 acres of land.
+ The master bedroom has two very large closets and doors out to the sunny greenhouse. The second bedroom is a large space with lots of natural light that could also be used for an office or studio.
+ The spacious living room has a beautifully sculpted, cozy, efficient wood-burning fireplace that provides additional heat in the winter. Floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of dramatic views and let in abundant natural light in the living room. Brick floors, beam and wood ceiling. Custom carved front door.
+ The kitchen features blue Talavera tile and new appliances: refrigerator, dishwasher, stove top, oven, disposal.
+ The bathroom includes an antique clawfoot tub (for a long, hot soak) and a large linen cupboard. The extra-large mirror above the sink adds to the room.
+ The laundry closet is in the hallway and a washer and dryer are provided. Convenient, yet out of the way.
+ Three types of heat keep you warm in the winter: forced-air propane heat, passive solar gain through the greeenhouse/sunroom, and an efficient wood-burning fireplace insert in the living room.
+ Refrigerated air cooling effectively tames the New Mexico summers.
+ Several fruit trees and flower beds are set in the front patio. Gardening beds in the greenhouse/sunroom allow for flowers in the winter!
+ The view from the covered back patio is of the north face of the Sandia Mountains that can be accessed directly from the back door. The back property line is at the National Forest.
+ The adobe construction and brick floors give the home a solid, quiet atmosphere. At the end of a dead-end road, there is seclusion, privacy, and quiet.
+ Located 1/3 mile up a well maintained gravel road, there is plenty of parking (no garage or carport) and a new 8 ft. x 10 ft. Tuff Shed for storage. Less than 10 minutes from I-25.
