Piedra River Estate is distinguished by its live water, wildlife habitat, and beautiful views of the green Piedra Valley. This property offers privacy and seclusion and is also a stunning recreational property. With access to the Piedra River and private lake, there are many opportunities for fishing, hiking, farming, riding horses and just enjoying the lay of the land.
The lake stretches over 2-acres of land; it is stocked all year long with trout and bass. The land consists of 9+-acres with exclusive water rights, well-planned irrigation, 2½-acres of lush meadows that could be utilized for hay farming, and includes a unique main Earth house, guesthouse and several outbuildings. There is a ditch coming off of the Piedra River, providing extra gravity-fed irrigation, which has a pump, a sprinkler system and underground irrigation for the upper pasture.
The energy efficient Earth home is built semi-underground for protection as well as heating and cooling efficiency, and is approximately 4,000 SF with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Its open living space with gracefully arched interior walls features huge skylights, creating light-filled rooms, several wood-burning fireplaces, dance room, game room and dedicated media room.
There is also a guesthouse on the property, which is an artisan barn-style home with approximately 1,700 SF, 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. Included is a 1,000-gallon buried propane tank, which is privately owned and used on the property. This property used to be an old stagecoach trail for cowboys passing though, where multiple sites of historic Kivas were discovered further up in the mountains.
