Shall we start at the beginning? Enter the property through a solar powered gate, and cruise along the pasture to the forested portion of the land via a well maintained base coarse road, suitable for a low slung car or your SUV. Set up as a horse ranch, you’ll see that the pasture is fenced and cross fenced appropriately. Swing around a bend in the road and into the house site, tucked perfectly (and privately) into a bowl, protected nicely from the famous NM winds…

A long portal welcomes you to the house -a lovely space to relax and view the pond setting in front of you.

Enter into a spacious great room with hard plastered walls and beamed ceiling and immediately feel at home. Open country kitchen with Heartland stove and farmhouse sink blends into the dining area – a large pantry set off to one side allow for prep work out of the open area. An office area is tucked away allowing for private work space without being shut off from the main flow of the home.

At the rear of the house is the mother of all mud/utility rooms. Capacious storage, workshop space, utility and mechanical room are all blended into a warm, welcoming work atmosphere. Oh, I almost forgot! The floors are warmed with radiant heat, and there’s a lovely wood stove in the living room.

Via a separate, covered porch enter the light, bright studio space.

There are three 15X 30' barn spaces – one for hay and tack, two for animals.

The south side of the home has a small greenhouse and raised garden beds, all done organically to date.

I could go on and on and still not do this place justice – you’ll just have to see the attention to detail for yourselves…. Oy – I mustn’t forget to tell you of the turkeys! A large flock of wild turkeys frequent the property – they won’t convey with the title, but if you’re nice, I’ll bet they’ll stay…

Here’s the turkeys (and you thought I meant the owners…)!
