Silver City house description

A truly green adobe house built before green was in vogue. It is 6000' above sea level which provides 4 gentle seasons. The location on the south edge of the city limits provides convenient access to all the amenities of the town and the isolation of quiet, country living. This 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has been recently updated from a family home to a rental with a unique and eclectic southwestern flavour. The master bedroom is extremely large, has two queen beds, a sofa and a separate library. The second bedroom has two twin beds. The large living room has two seating areas and includes a queen sleeper sofa. The dining room is set to seat 8 people but could accommodate more. A separate breakfast area is adjacent to the well-furnished kitchen. The very private setting includes two outdoor seating areas with views on a clear day of mountain peaks in Mexico.

              Location

              Silver City is adjacent to the Gila National Forest which contains two wilderness areas: the Aldo Leopold Wilderness which was the first wilderness in the US and the Gila Wilderness. The Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument is a scenic 1 1/2 hour drive to the north of Silver City through the forest and adjacent to the upper reaches of the Gila River. Both commercial and undeveloped hot springs are in the area.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1979

              About the owner: This is first built of 4 family homes that are on this property. Brothers-in-law David and Rick did the majority of the construction in the early years and oversaw the recent updating. Sisters-in-law Lee and Alice oversaw the redecoration and traveler-friendly amenities.

              Why the Owner Chose Silver City:
              This is a large 2800 square foot home. While it can sleep 4-6 people, there are enough separate areas to find alone time. The passive solar adobe features of this home make it a truly green experience. With an altitude of 6000', the climate is moderated to 4 gentle seasons. No unbearable summer heat and no extreme winters.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Quiet, country living close to town. The family property of over 125 acres allows guests to take enjoyable walks (or easy hikes) to observe the wildlife, enjoy birding, or fabulous stargazing.
