Taos Earthships

The Coyote Moon Pumicecrete Gem - $239,900

 

A home need not be huge to be spectacular. This off-grid pumicecrete gem truly proves that. While it has 1200 square foot area, it takes advantage of the spacious uninterrupted panoramic views surrounding it. Located about 30 minutes away from Taos, it is easily accessible year-round via well-maintained roads.  While barely one year old, it has all of the benefits of a new home without the hassle of building one.

Video Tour:

The following video will take you on a walkthrough tour of the property:

The Setting

The home sits within the Cielito Lindo Subdivision - a sustainable off grid community between Taos and Tres Piedras just off of U.S. Highway 64. With a minimum lot size of about 20 acres, the neighbors are just close enough to provide security, and the amenities of a neighborhood. But far enough away to keep plenty of privacy and lots of space between the homes.  The neighborhood amenities include road maintenance, a community well, and high speed Internet access.

Open skies and distant mountains in all directions really give this area a big sky sky feel. This home is situated to take advantage of the wonderful views.  In the day that you can see Wheeler Peak and many other of New Mexico's highest mountains from it. At night the lights of the town of Arroyo Seco, about 20 miles away, shimmer across the valley.  Sunsets and sunrises surpass all explaination.

The Home

The exterior walls are made of sixteen-inch-thick pumicecrete, a highly energy efficient, and durable material made of concrete and pumice. In addition to being a wonderful insulator, it also is very aesthetically pleasing. Its form resembles the traditional New Mexico Adobe style. The exteriors covered with sunset-colored stucco, and interior walls with plaster.

 

After entering in through the beautiful and impressive wooden door, you come to an entryway.  The door to the left leads to the bathroom, the one to the right to the bedroom, and the great room lies straight ahead.  Immediately the elegant interior finishes become apparent including the polished stained concrete floor, 10 inch viga ceilings, and a decorative nicho.

 

The spacious light-filled great room occupies the entire rear of the house.  A continuous row of picture windows on the south wall allows the scenic high desert landscape and its ever-changing light inside as well as providing passive solar heat when sun comes in, warms the floor, which then heats the home.  Thermal blinds lower at night to keep the warmth in.

 

The southwest corner of the great room functions as the home's living room.  A corner wood stove gives heat and atmosphere.

 

The kitchen sits on the opposite corner of the great room.  Here a modern wood-burning cook stove allows a homeowner to cook but never even have to buy propane (the home is set up to be plumbed with propane, should you prefer to cook with gas).  An energy efficient refrigerator and freezer sits in the far corner.  Between the stove and refrigerator lie the beautiful cabinets, sink, countertops, and stone backsplash.

 

Adjacent to the kitchen, the dining area sits next to the sliding glass door leading outside.  The door's location between the kitchen and dining area allows food to be easily brought outside for much of the year for dining al fresco.

This view looking back towards through front door shows the view that greets you whenever you step outside.

 

The corner bedroom also enjoys abundant light.  Two spacious closets sit behind mirrored doors.

 

The bedroom also contains plenty of space for a dresser and other furniture.  Light from the windows means never having to turn on the lights during daylight hours.

This square of four windows through the massive pumicecrete walls frame the picture of ever-changing light on the sagebrush, mountains, and skies of Northern New Mexico.

 

The spacious bathroom contains many beautiful touches including this claw-foot tub decorative washbasin.

 

This view of the other side of the bathroom really shows how large and open it is.

 

A door from the bathroom leads to the home's mechanical area.  On the right, an ultraviolet water treatment system sterilizes water from the cistern. The green tank is an 80 gallon storage for the hot water system and uses glycol coils to keep it hot after it circulates down from the large collector panel on the roof. A door from this room leads outside to the electrical/storage shed.

 

The electrical shed sits right next to the home.

Inside, it houses the home's electrical inverter and batteries.  It also functions as a large storage area.
