Fully off-grid straw-bale/post & beam home, with 1,400 sq. ft. of heated space, attached sunroom, attached greenhouse, courtyard, and detached storage shed, on 19.8 acres of open land. Located in a quiet community 3 mi off the highway, a 30 min drive to Taos Plaza, over the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. 2 bedrooms/1 bath open into a bright, great room/kitchenette, accented with the artistic charm of stained glass, decorative tiles and wall nichos. Spectacular views, perfect for sky & 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. The night sky, free of light pollution, is perfect for viewing the planets, and yearly meteor showers. 7,000 gallons of on-site water storage, plus a well-share of 2000 gallons/month 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 from six 285-watt roof mounted solar panels, charging 8 deep-cycle 450 amp batteries. An inverter converts DC power into AC, allowing the use of conventional appliances. A propane-powered backup generator, attached directly to the inverter, is available for monsoon-season days of no sun. Solar gain from the south facing windows, and a Baker’s Choice wood cookstove, heats the house, keeping you warm and cozy all winter.
