home1Are you looking for something special? Here it is!

living1This is a modern, very special Santa Fe Style home. The big windows/doors and the winter garden are facing exactly south. From all major rooms you have an excellent view over the broad valley, behind at the horizon are the mountains of the Gila, Apache and Cibola National Forests.

The home has 2310 square feet of living space and a built in 2 car garage. It is a one story house.

Despite the great view up to 80 miles from 3 sides of the house (from east to south to west), there is still absolute privacy: the home’s plateau on top of the hill (seen from below the hill or from the gravel road on the plateau) is well hidden by an old grown pine/juniper forest.

living11The central focus is the huge living room in the center with a modern kitchen facing north. Because of the high ‘tongue & groove’ ceiling and the redwood beams, it appears even bigger. This living room divides the rest of the house into 2 separate units. On the east side is the master bed room with a modern bathroom, a second bedroom (or office), and a big walk-in closet. On the west side is a nice bedroom for guests, with a full bathroom. The beautiful winter garden to the south is accessible from the living room or the guest room. Included also are a mud room (shoe and cloth storage room), a spacious pantry with a chest freezer and a utility room with wash machine, hot water heater and an additional small bedroom (or hobby room) etc.

south5There are several other highlights on this property like the fine terrace with a nice fire place and a big pond, a Santa Fe style work shop, a huge, fenced vegetable garden, trails (with bridges over the arroyos) all over the property and several piles of fire wood in unbelievable quantities for the wood stoves. For more details please refer to to the link below.

Accessible year around on well maintained, graveled county/private roads, it is about 7 miles to the next paved highway, US60. The next post office, general store, hardware store, restaurant, school and 2 gas stations is in Quemado, 15 miles away, the next city (Springerville/Eager) is about 60 miles west in Arizona (incl. bigger shops, hospital etc). Other nearby cities are Gallup, Grants, Albuquerque and Socorro.
