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. Tri-cultural area of Hispanic, Indian and Anglo families.
We need care of our a very friendly eight toed cat and our retriever-airdale mix who LOVES to go for walks. 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 (it used to be our pottery studio) 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, great stargazing. 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 has back up wood and gas heat, fast internet, and modern amenities. In November we could have snow but there is always abundant sunshine in NM. There are several local ski areas and lots of places to hike and explore. We are active birdwatchers and have a nice array of winter birds that come to our feeders.
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.
