OFF THE GRID AND UNDER THE RADAR! This hide-away in New Mexico is a sanctuary from people and noise, a refuge from the insanity of the modern world and the chaos of today's urban society. The building is 1200 square feet of contemporary metal construction. Built to the highest standards, it has extra structural reinforcing, a heavy duty slab, and extra insulation. Rather than a living space, the structure was designed to be an artist's studio with guest quarters, but the building worked out so well as a living space that the builder never built the formal house. Water and septic lines are in place if the new owner chooses to add another building. The house is both active and passive solar with large screened windows allowing light and the beauty of the natural surroundings into the living space. The active solar system is an exceptionally well-designed and functional photovoltaic system which incorporates a WattSun Tracker. The property has two excellent wells, a 500 gallon propane tank, and a 12 X 24 ft storage shed. The land is 71+, fenced acres, 3.5 miles off the paved road, with private access, and is completely surrounded by a 50,000 acre cattle and quarter horse ranch. 6,000 ft elevation, no neighbors, and no mosquitos! Elk, deer, coyotes, rabbits, bobcats, mountain lions make their home in the area. 1 hour from Albuquerque and 1 1/2 hours from Santa Fe.
