Modern, sunny, open plan house in northern NM in a rural mountain setting located adjacent to National Forest. Perfect retreat for a person or family who loves the outdoors and is self-sufficient. Tri-cultural area of Hispanic, Indian and Anglo families. We had a housesitter arranged who had to recently cancel due to a medical emergency.
We need care of our very friendly eight toed cat and our retriever-airdale who is getting older. Kitty is very self sufficient but enjoys human company. Vader, our dog can be left for a few hours if you want to explore Santa Fe etc.
House is newly renovated and has two bedrooms and two baths---very sunny and open. Great space for an artist or nature lover. It's a wonderfult area to go hiking, cross country skiing, or exploring the scenic High Road to Taos. We are 45 minutes from Taos and 60 minutes from Santa Fe in the small mountain village of Ojo Sarco. Property offers privacy and beautiful views, large outdoor porches and patio. We have excellent neighbors. We are in the mountains and it is quite rural. The small art community of Dixon is 30 minutes away and has a nice co-op and library.
Non smoking, conscientious sitter required with references. House sitters have enjoyed our property in the past. House has large solar windows and and modern amenities. We are birders and abundant birds come to our feeders. Driveway is plowed in winter in case of snow and is off a paved road. Gas and wood heat. We are at 7600 ft elevation. For comparision our weather is similar to Denver---a bit milder. Last year we had quite a bit of snow, the previous winter we had none.
We are slightly flexible about dates and have a guest room so you can visit and see the property, meet our critters etc. for more pictures etc.
