Our home is near Penasco, Taos county, NM, 27 miles from Taos. It is less than a year old 3 bedroom, 2 bath modular home, 1500 sq ft. Mostly furnished. On the grid, propane heat (house is well insulated), and a good well. There is also a small travel trailer on the property A on meadow in trees next to Carson National Forest. 8,000 feet elevation. Dirt forest access road goes thru property. low clearance 2 wheel drive accessible. nearest neighbor mile north towards Llano.

Llano is a lovely location filled with artists, sitting just above the small town of Penasco, NM. This home is ideal for an artist's retreat, and within reasonable driving distance of many historic and recreational locations (Taos, Santa Fe, Abiquiu, Red River, Angel Fire, to name a few) The weather is almost perfect during the summer and fall months. The "natives" are very friendly.

There is satellite internet and TV which we can turn off or leave hooked up. Will need own computer and TV to use. Internet $50/mo, TV $32/mo. Verizon and some other cell phone services work most of the time, but there are roaming charges for some plans. Local provider Kit Carson(?) works best. No land line phone. 6 A are fenced for horses, but 1 horse will eat all grass in less than 2 months.

One bedroom will be used for our storage. Absolutely no smoking, cats, dogs, or other hair shedding pets in house. Keep house in same shape you found it. Don't leave house unattended for more than 3 days. Pay electric bill -- should be less than $40/mo. We can either fill propane tank when you get here and you pay to fill it when you leave or give us $20/mo. We're not sure what propane usage will be because this is only our 2nd month here and it hasn't made much of a dent in the 800 gal in the tank even though it's winter. It shouldn't use much in spring, summer, fall. We may come and stay in travel trailer on a weekend, possibly use one of the bathrooms. References will be required, and will be checked thoroughly on all interested parties.
