A homesteader’s dream, this unique and beautifully-maintained home with photovoltaic solar panels is on a private street off of Bishops Lodge Road on almost 2 acres of usable land under a canopy of mature piñon, juniper, cottonwood and aspen trees. An open floor plan, ample rooms, and high ceilings give the house an expansive feel. Punctuated with distinctive touches such as smooth plaster walls that organically flow from one room to the next, clerestory windows and a wall of built in shelves in the library, and custom tile in the bathrooms. Excellent light throughout, it is perfect for displaying art with the abundant wall space, nichos and shelves. The gourmet kitchen has granite countertops, abundant cabinet space and an adjacent breakfast nook. The master suite, separate from the other bedrooms, has a sitting area with a cozy kiva fireplace and the master bath has a roomy shower. The grounds boast trees, extensive gardens, and several patios with plenty of space for outdoor living. Other features: outdoor pizza oven, outdoor kiva fireplace, exercise room, chicken coop, dog run, pig house and enclosure, large vegetable garden, outdoor composter, large tree house/play structure, turf soccer field, enclosed yard, apple orchard, and fruit trees. A short distance from the plaza shops and dining, yet feels secluded in the hills just north of the city with easy access to hiking trails.
