The large windows in the living room and bedroom provide great natural lighting and help to heat the space with the abundant Southwestern sunshine. There's a substantial wood-burning stove in between the living room and kitchen for heating the house during the winter-time. The on-demand water heater is powered by electricity, along with the large refrigerator and range oven-stove in the kitchen. There are gas pipes in the kitchen and bathroom if you prefer to use appliances that run on propane instead. With the 3 solar panels on the roof producing plenty of electricity, the electric bill is $27.00/month, which is Kit Carson's standard service fee for using their electrical grid. The water quality is excellent, thanks to the Tres Piedras Water Association. -------- As for the rest of the property, there is a 40 foot shipping/storage container, a wooden Palappa gazebo, a small wood shed and a worm-bin for composting on site. There's also a covered back porch area, connected to the casita, with a lovely wall constructed of latillas to provide a buffer for the occasional mesa winds. --------The surrounding area has a wide variety of gorgeous hiking spots, as well as epic rock-climbing in the Carson National Forest which is only a few minutes away. Tres Piedras is home to all sorts of wildlife too, including elk, falcons, rabbits, salamanders, ravens, rattlesnakes, bobcats and coyotes.
