At the crossroads of Highways 68 and 75, a distinguished home stands amidst the landscape of a sprawling ranch. The canyons and cliffs on the ranch, formed from the area's prevalent volcanic rock, possess a distinct beauty. Juniper, piñon trees, and sagebrush terrains further embellish the region. Located on a desert plateau near Dixon, NM, between the historic cities of Santa Fe and Taos, this autonomous residence serves as a sanctuary for those seeking balance and serenity.
Spanning over 660 acres, the property is home to deer, elk, Rocky Mountain big horn sheep, various high desert animals, and is an ideal spot for observing migrating birds during winter and spring. Explore your private land or head into nearby public areas on foot or horseback.
Masterfully crafted by Palo Santo Designs LLC, this 3,600 sq.ft. home harmoniously blends nature and contemporary design. Emphasizing sustainable, off-grid living, the residence is equipped with a private water supply, solar systems, and connectivity options. Architectural elements such as Pumice-Crete and traditional Kiva designs are notable. In the Kiva room, north-facing windows focus on the Taos Mountains, while the west-facing windows frame the sunsets.
Above the main living area, a loft provides space for reflection, reading, or experiencing the desert's ambiance, complemented by an en-suite bathroom. The master suite, with a southern view, reveals the Jemez Mountains. A gas fireplace enhances its ambiance, and dual bathrooms add to its comfort. The adjacent guest room resonates with the tranquility of the environment.
For those desiring a retreat from urban distractions, yet close to the cultural touchstones of Santa Fe and Taos, this home is a perfect match. Here, sustainable living, solitude, and modern amenities converge seamlessly.
