Welcome to Carson, NM, A peaceful, rural community located in a mixed pinon wooded and sagebrush covered, desirable part of Taos County, and located only 27 miles(40 minutes) from historic Taos, NM; and only 16 miles from the coveted destination of Ojo Caliente Hot Springs and Resort. Santa Fe is about a 75 minute drive from this lovely home. The subject property is a Territorial style, 2 story, stuccoed home constructed of post and beam and strawbale construction and located on and nestled in a 6.25 acre pinon tree forested lot. The 2 story interior includes many artistic touches; on the lower level there is lovely vaulted ceiling living room with mud floors, antique pressed tin ceilings, and large windows looking out into the walled courtyard. There is solar hot water/propane radiant floor heat in the comfy mud floors, and a wood stove for back up heat located here. One looks into a cozy kitchen with nice windows looking outside into nature, there is a bedroom and opposing 1/2 bathroom downstairs and down the hallway there is a generous sized artist's studio with an artist's sink and large south facing windows designed to collect passive solar heat in the cold times. The studio once housed a pool table. What a concept for intimate neighborhood gatherings on summer or winter evenings. There is a washing machine located conveniently near the studio space. From the living room/kitchen area one takes the lovely staircase to the upstairs portion of the house, and encounters an open loft/den area that overlooks the living room and which might best serve as a comfortable computer/office space and has windows and doorway where one gaze outside or step out onto a large balcony deck for a view and a breath of fresh air, while looking over the walled coutryard space and raised growing beds. Back inside, and down the short hallway there is another cozy bedroom space and a full bath. Ourtside the house, and detached from the home is another strawbale shop/studio space with electricity and an attached greenhouse. There are two other shed type of structures which are convenient for storing tools and protecting firewood. The outdoor walled courtyard, just off of the kitchen /living room area, is a shady and protected area to relax outside, barbecue, or perhaps recline in a hammock while enjoying this mostly shaded area with a flagstone patio. There are fertile areas in the courtyard for flowers or growing a few vegetables. This property has grid electric power, telephone, a domestic well, and a septic system. Schedule an appointment to come and have a look. This could be your place to be.
