Location: Truchas, New Mexico
Though it doesn’t look like much from the outside, this recently remodeled 1910 adobe home in New Mexico offers not only the most charming wood-beamed and brick and tile-laid interiors but also breathtaking vistas of the Truchas Peaks and surrounding Rio Grande river valley—and the chance to commune with nature.
Located in the village of Truchas (halfway between Santa Fe to the south and Taos to the north), the 1,464-square-foot, stucco-sided three-bedroom sits on over 11 acres of irrigated land, with the property including a greenhouse, chicken coop, hay barn, tack room, garden beds, and fields for alfalfa and grass mix hay cultivation. Inside, the clay-walled house features a rustic, cozy atmosphere presided over by a system of vigas and latillas and punctuated by colorful accents in the kitchen and bathroom, while a large, covered stone patio offers views to the Jemez range.
The property boasts potential for a truly sustainable and nature-centric lifestyle, but if you require even more access to the wild, the Carson National Forest, Santa Fe National Forest, Pecos Wilderness, and the Ojo Caliente Hot Springs are all nearby. It’s asking $398,000. Take a look around.
