Beautiful Earthship designed by Taos architect, Michael Reynolds. This is a truly unique earth-friendly, off-grid oasis in the desert that is nestled into the earth to provide extra insulation, comfort and energy efficiency! Perimeter interior walls are rammed earth finished with natural adobe, earthen plaster and lime wash. Aspen tongue and groove grace much of the ceiling space in the main house. The home is complete with many charming details that you'll fall in love with. Bonus studio space connected to the home through a hallway also has access through it's own two exterior doorways. The studio's high ceilings, natural light and open space makes it the perfect place to house your music room, art studio or yoga studio with stunning views of Kit Carson peak to the east and fantastic sunset views out the northwest windows. Studio has unfinished floors insulated with blue board and rugs on top that are ready for radiant floor tubing to heat and maintain the perfect temperature at any time but also includes a wood stove for extra winter heating. A bonus loft makes the perfect bedroom to awaken to the morning sun bursting over the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range to the east and additional views of Mt Blanca to the south. The separate workshop has a full kitchen and bathroom in addition to a sunroom (unfinished interior) and a domed round room with a loft above. Wood stove and Rinnai propane heater keep the space toasty year round. The sunken yard gives the feeling of total privacy and several well established trees provide shade and protection in the summertime. New: well pump with control box and charge controller for solar system. Septic tank pumped Oct. 2020, new battery bank installed summer 2019. Never pay a water or electric bill again!
