Silver City house description

Relax and experience beauty inside and outside in this art-filled and fully furnished 2200 sq. ft. home surrounded by mountain views. You will awaken from restful and modern accommodations to breath-taking vistas. Enjoy spectacular sunsets while dining on one of the 4 porches or from the large picture windows framing the spacious living and dining areas. Experience the natural beauty of the Gila Wilderness area first-hand and hike the 18 ACRES OF PRIVATE HIKING TRAILS or stay in touch with civilization through the WIRELESS INTERNET and FLAT SCREEN TV. There is even a CELL PHONE BOOSTER to ensure service from this secluded site.

KITCHEN is fully furnished with everything you'll need to create delicious meals from scratch, including the 'Joy of Cooking' Cookbook! Don't feel like cooking? Hop in the car and visit one of several nearby restaurants in charming, historic Pinos Altos or Silver City.

You'll love the DOUBLE SINKS and DOUBLE SHOWER off the Master Bedroom equipped with a QUEEN BED, LARGE CLOSETS, READING LAMPS, CEILING FAN and ANTIQUE WALL HANGING and RUGS.

                              Manager info

                              Year Purchased: 1999

                              About: The owner, Bruce, was a factory worker, logger, newspaper reporter, PR flunkie, and unpublished fiction writer before he discovered computers and lost all interest in reality. He spent 12 years in a computer fog, but gave it all up to move to the Silver City area in 1999. He is now in recovery, but does find time to manage an office building and a few other business projects in town.

                              Why Silver City:
                              Bruce lived in this beautiful house for five years before turning it into a vacation rental. If you don't book it, he probably will. It's a sacred place that he likes to share with others.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              This is the next to last house on the phone and electric lines. Beyond us are a couple of tiny communities and a hundred miles of wilderness. The nearest mall is about 90 miles away. It's a little inconvenient to get here, but worth the trouble.
