Home for sale in the mountains of West Central New Mexico, north of Pie Town in a remote area of Catron County. This is the perfect property for anyone wanting to live off-grid on a sustainable, self-survival property: solar power for home and well, wood heat, water catchment system, insulated conex container for food storage, and cold frame garden areas. In addition to the 1188 square foot home, the property boasts a rock storage building, wood frame storage building, unfinished cabin on ridge, and two 40 foot conex containers.
The 3 bedroom 2 bath home was placed on a permanent foundation and skirted with stone and insulated plywood. The outside of the home, with its fiber cement walls and metal roof, requires very little maintenance. Although the home has forced air central heat, only the wood burning stove is necessary to heat the home with its insulation upgrade. The home boasts vaulted ceilings, walk-in closets, pantry, and propane cookstove.
Rock-outcroppings line the northern boundary of the property. The home sits at the base of these bluffs, well protected from the north winds and with the southern exposure. If you think the views from the home are awesome, you should see the 360 degree views from the ridge along the sandstone outcroppings! At night, a person can witness the beauty of the moon and stars. Sitting among the trees on the ridge is a partially finished cabin that is structurally intact but unfinished.
The well is 155 feet in depth and yields an estimated 8 gallons per minute. Property has the capacity to collect 4,000 gallons by rain water harvesting. The twelve 235 watt panel solar system was installed in 2011. Two in ground cold frame garden areas serve as "green-houses" for growing a garden. Property is treed with mature pinon and juniper and has open grassy meadows.
Stars, sunsets, 360 degree views, wildlife (including elk), solitude, privacy, all with the comforts of home. Contact New Mexico West Properties (575.773.4996) with any questions about the property and/or the general area. We look forward to hearing from you.
