Located in a charming, historic village nestled in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, this property has much to offer. This home is a classic adobe with some nice additions and upgrades. The kitchen boasts granite countertops, a farm sink, a breakfast nook and spacious pantry. The dining room doubles as a library with a full wall of bookshelves. The bathrooms have vintage tile, a clawfoot bath, and a very nice sauna. Upstairs is a spacious addition with a deck overlooking open pastures and the glorious views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The rooms are large and light with vintage space heaters, beautiful details, and lots of storage and closet space. On the south side resides a passive solar sunroom opening onto the perennial garden, and the north has a lovely porch. There is a log cabin casita, with a nice little kitchen, high ceilings and its own garden patio. Fronting on Main Street, just across from the historic college campus, the studio/retail building is a former mercantile with 2800 square feet of completely rehabbed work and show space, hardwood floors, beadboard ceilings, excellent lighting, and utility sinks, all in five large rooms. The community of El Rito offers a library, a great medical clinic, and a famous little restaurant. Traditional agriculture endures here and the national Forest is nearby for outdoor opportunities. The annual Art Tour attracts serious buyers who visit the many talented artists in the valley. This is a great place to live.
