Tres Piedras house description

***Phone & Internet***

Come to sunny New Mexico and experience the serenity and delight of sustainable living. A perfect get-a-way, yet close to Taos, the ski valley and Santa Fe. It's a favorite place for artists of all kinds: writers, musicians, poets.....

*HelioHouse has stunning views, and is located on the mesa of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Let us pamper you or leave you alone-whichever you prefer. Regardless, you'll feel more like you’re a guest in a luxury hotel than in a home built using recycled tires, aluminum cans and bottles.

Please check out our website for more information. Link is found below.

*Helio is the Greek word for sun.

                                  In addition to being one of the few areas in the US that allow alternative housing, Taos offers many recreational activities. It's known for it's artist communities and the centuries old Taos Pueblo.

                                  Other tourist attractions are the homes of Kit Carson and Mabel Dodge Luhan, along with the Rio Grande Gorge and Taos Ski Valley. Twenty miles northwest is the D. H. Lawrence Ranch, (originally known as the Kiowa Ranch and now owned by the University of New Mexico), the home of the English novelist, D. H. Lawrence in the 1920s. By all accounts he loved the ranch high up in the mountains, the only property he ever owned. It is believed that his ashes are buried there at the D. H. Lawrence Memorial.
