Taos Earthships

by John Kejr

 

REACH Community Earthship Project - $40,000

 

Few views can top those from REACH Community and this earthship project for sale there.  This mostly-completed earthship provides an opportunity to enjoy those views in a home that you can complete and customize to your liking.

Video Tour:

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

Home Photographs

The home sits in R.E.A.C.H. Community - one of Michael Reynold's three earthship communities - located about 15 miles north of Taos on the mountain slopes overlooking the entire valley and beyond. 

A few notes about R.E.A.C.H. community.

Rather than owning individual lots, property owners own a membership that allows them to own a home of a certain size on the land.  For this reason, buyers will most likely not be able to obtain bank financing and should plan on purchasing using cash.  The property has a home owners association responsible for maintaining roads and paying taxes and other common area expenses.

R.E.A.C.H. is on a steep mountain side and requires a 4 x 4 vehicle for access.

 

This view shows the home's entrance.  The door leads to the main entrance.  The upper level is accessed through the opening on the right.

The front door leads to this room which functions as both a mechanical room and a mud room.  Here you find the electrical equipment in the panel at the center of the picture, and the battery box in the lower right.

 

The great room combines the living, kitchen and dining areas.  A fireplace in the center supplements heat on cool evenings and cloudy days.   The windows take in the spectacular views overlooking the Taos and Valdez valleys.

 

The end of this great room functions as the kitchen area with a gas range and sink.  The home also comes with the washing machine shown at the left.

 

 

The back of the great room is carved right into the mountain side with a rock wall.  Stairs lead up to the bedroom.

 

The loft bedroom sits above the great room and overlooks it.  The skylight at the rear provides light and ventilation.

 

The bathroom actually takes water from the cistern to fill a tub.  Here you also see the sink and the views from this portion of the home.

 

The home includes this composting toilet.  Here a door leads directly to the outside.

 

The upper level is not as finished as the rest of the home.  It is accessed from the hillside above the main home.

When finished it could serve as either living or storage space depending upon how it was completed.

Like the rest of the home, it features great views.

 

When finished, this deck of the upper level will offer the best place to take in the panoramic views both day and night.

 

Please contact me with any questions, to arrange a visit, or otherwise pursue this home.
