20 Gorge View
Taos, NM 87529
Imagine if Gaudi had built an Earthship? This would be it! A stunning example of Earthship architecture, the Corner Cottage combines organic beauty with perfect performance living off the grid. Set on two acres close to the Phoenix mothership with mountain views all around, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath global model stays cool in the summer and warm in the winter with no heat source other than the sun. Solar electricity and hot water with a minimal propane bill for just the oven. The home is spacious with a huge greenhouse growing grapes and bananas extending the entire length of the home wide enough to be an additional living space, with additional private greenhouses in the kitchen and bedrooms. The bathroom is a work of art, large and tiled floor to ceiling with glossy black tiles and matching fixtures, sea-foam green tub for two inlaid with seashells and a stunning mermaid stained-glass door by Tanya Parks. The bedrooms are huge with plenty of closet space. The custom kitchen features lovely, logical cabinets, a hand-made mosaic backsplash by Hillary Kushner, handmade cement counter tops inlaid with cobalt blue glass, gas double oven and solar powered SunFrost refrigerator. Flagstone and cement floors. Handmade charming details throughout like the recycled washing machine panel "scales" on the home's exterior. Walk to the Rio Grande National Monument. Watch the balloons rise from the Gorge in the mornings if you're up early. Has a successful short term vacation rental history as well.
