Set on 6.59 acres with irrigation rights, in the idyllic Northern New Mexico Village of El Rito this lodge-style home is secluded and peaceful. As you enter the property, via the Private Bridge of the El Rito River, take in the Cottonwoods, Oaks, Pinons, Juniper and Sagebrush, not to mention the views of the Sangre de Cristo's across the Rio Grande Valley. Enter the home into a light-filled, high ceiling great room with brick floors, extensive bancos and a formidable Territorial style fireplace with a sandstone hearth and hand-carved walnut mantle. Pass through to the dining room with a massive stone fireplace and open sunny kitchen. The Master bedroom is spacious and has another large stone fireplace, french doors and en suite bathroom. There are two more bedrooms and another full bath. Outside you will find a stable, tack shed, covered hay storage, carport and separate storage building. The upper half of the property is fenced for horses and borders Carson National Forest. VERY COOL SURPRISE: There is an observatory on the property with a telescope and the roof slides away when you want to view the stars. How many homes have that!
