I am seeking a long term (1 year+) house sitter for a large, secluded, fully off-grid property in New Mexico, about 20 minutes from the tiny towns of Madrid and Los Cerrillos, on HWY 14, the Turqoise Trail.  These towns have some shockingly good restaurants, events and live music.  So as remote as my residence is, it's surpising close to real amenties.

The house is a beautiful, modern, 3 bedroom, two full bath, contemporary adobe brick house (built around 2006), very well insulated, designed for passive solar operation.  It also has a radiant heated floor which is truly wonderful in the winter.  Although fully off-grid, the house functions as any normal house, and its specific off-grid needs are administered by a property manager.  It even has excellent Internet service.

There is a second building on the property that serves as a work shop, storage area, entertaiment room (with pool table), and a large, high quality home theater.

The parcel is 60 acres and has a 1.3 mile long walking/mtn biking path.

The property also has a nice wood fired barrel sauna near the house.

Spectacular views all around, especially west facing, which affords the most epic sunsets you'll ever see.

The house is fully furnished.

I love animals, but have no pets or animals other than the native critters that abound here.  I have had bobcats doing the rounds, coyotes are regular presence, and I regularly relocated large rattlesnakes, just to name a few.  You are essentially in the high desert wilderness out here.  If you don't like bunnies and lizards, this is not the place for you!

I would prefer a housesitter with no indoor pets, but can likely make exceptions based on certain criteria.

I absolutely love living out here and you will too.
