Fully off-grid home of straw-bale/post and beam construction, with 1,400 sq. ft. of heated space, plus an attached sunroom, a small attached greenhouse, a courtyard and a detached storage shed, on 19.8 acres of open land. Located in a quiet community 3 miles off the highway, a 30 minute drive from Taos Plaza, across the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. Two cozy bedrooms and 1 bath open into the bright, unenclosed great room/kitchenette, accented with occasional touches of the unique artistic charm of stained glass, decorative tiles and wall nichos. Spectacular views, perfect for sky and star gazers. During the day, amidst the peaceful cerulean blue that is unique to the Southwest, view all shapes and varieties of clouds, or enjoy stunning sunrises and sunsets yearlong. The night sky, free of light pollution, is perfect for viewing the planets, constellations and yearly meteor showers. With 7,000 gallons of on-site water storage, plus a well-share of 2000 available gallons per month there is plenty of filtered water. Nearly unlimited hot water is available year-round, courtesy of El Sol, eliminating the high cost of heating water for household use. Abundant power is provided by six 285-watt roof mounted solar panels, charging 8 deep-cycle 450 amp batteries. An inverter converts DC power from the batteries into AC, allowing the use of conventional appliances. A propane-powered backup generator, attached directly to the inverter, is available for monsoon-season days that may leave you a little short of stored power. Solar gain from the south facing windows heats the house in winter, and a Baker’s Choice wood cookstove, built by the Amish and shipped to Taos by the folks from the Lehman's Non-electric Company will keep you warm and cozy all winter. This large firebox, user-friendly wood stove is capable of heating the entire house while cooking your meals and keeping water hot for that relaxing cup of coffee or tea.
