Ute Mountain Straw Bale Estate - $387,000

 

This elegant straw bale home sits on 111.70 breathtaking acres on the New Mexico/Colorado state line.  Don't forget the elk!  They will be your closest neighbors for much of the year.

Video Tour:

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

Location

This view shows the home and its surrounding property as seen from the north.  The New Mexico/Colorado state line runs along the road running through the middle of the photograph from left to right which also forms the south boundary of the property and the north boundary of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.  The riverbed of the Rio Costilla on the left side of the photograph forms the east boundary of property on its way to its confluence with the Rio Grnade in the center right portion of the photograph.  The road to the right of the home sits at the property's west boundary.  This photograph also shows Ute Peak on the left.

 

As seen from above, the property contains the home and its solar electric equipment building.

Home Photographs

A plank entryway and covered patio surrounded by xeroscape landscaping greet you at the front door.  This picture also shows the Costilla Range of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  The distant cottonwoods in the background line the bed of the Costilla River at the property's eastern boundary.

The front door leads to the homes great room which combines living, dining, and kitchen spaces.  Adobe finished walls, a massive kiva fireplace, and adobe floors give earth elements and a natural feel.  The vaulted tongue-and-groove ceiling soars above the room giving a spacious, bright and airy feel.

The picture windows frame the inspiring 10093 Ute Mountain just across the state line in New Mexico within the new Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.  The thick window sills and frames contribute to the natural feel of the home.  This view of the mountain will always be protected since the property borders the national monument with no developable land sitting between them.

 

The dining area sits between next to the living area and the spacious kitchen with plenty of room for entertaining.

Just off the dining area, sits this secluded patio - perfect for taking in the dramatic views like this one of distant storms across the valley.  This space serves as a perfect outside dining room for much of the year.

The spacious kitchen contains a SunFrost DC refrigerator, a double sink with a view out the window, and a downdraft stove.  The SilestoneTM quartz counter tops provide a beautiful, durable, and functional preparation surface.  The tile backsplash features a panoramic mural of Ute Mountain and other surrounding landmarks by Jaroso artist Mark Dudrow - reminding you of your beautiful surrounding.

This view from the kitchen shows the oven, cabinetry, dining area, and intriguing curved book cases built by Lynn Stehwein leading into the bedroom.  The contrasting ceiling lines between the bedroom and great room portions of the home provide visual interest.

 

The open airy feel of the great room extends into the master bedroom.  Imagine waking to the views of the sunrise coming over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and shining on Ute Mountain.

The office nook off of the bedroom provides a wonderful work space with ample light and corner office views.

The home's spacious master bath includes the sink and shower that you see here...

 

... and a toilet and bidet.   Beautiful cabinetry provides for ample linen storage.

On the other side of the great room, this den area provides a cozy area to read or just relax.  The doorway to the right leads to a the second bathroom, laundry area, and the garage.

The home's 24' x 24' garage provides plenty of room for your vehicles and storage.

This off-grid home's electrical system generates power from multiple solar and wind generators.  This shed houses batteries, inverters, a generator, and other equipment to supply all of the home's power needs.
