Custom 2000+ sq ft off grid home in the Baca Grande Grants, with sweeping views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. Designed as a retreat house with two master suites off the main kitchen, this house was built by a mason, who took years creating dramatic stone and crystal inlays throughout the space, including a 2000 lb Chrysocolla crystal imbedded into the entrance. Built 3’ below grade, the house is exceptionally well designed to withstand the cold and has two large built in wood stoves as well as multiple gas heaters throughout the house. Vaulted ceilings help to keep the space cool in the summer, with multiple large double pane windows that open, allowing for cross ventilation. A huge flagstone front entrance with an accent pond and waterfall help to flow energy through the space, with many windows filling the house with natural light all day. Two large planter beds inside allow for all season farm-to-table meals in the convenience of your own home or in-ground house plants for a peaceful green space. A 720 Sq ft self-sufficient apartment adjoins the space, with ample room for guests or rental, complete with a 3/4 bathroom, kitchenette and laundry room. This property also offers a 150 Sq Ft octagonal ceremonial space. Called the “Spirit Kiva” by the builder, this sacred structure was designed for healing, meditation and ceremony and created to encourage communication with the spirit world. It also has a wood stove surrounded by a custom hearth inlayed with sparkling local crystals, allowing for ceremonies year round. Rounding out this expansive 4.39 acre property is a large fenced in, established garden area with a goat and chicken pen, barn and hay loft as well as 8 raised beds with season extenders and a full size green house. The extraordinary details lovingly designed into this space make it a must-see home you won’t want to pass up!
