Property 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.

BEDROOMS are complete with CRISP LINENS, beautiful bedspreads and everything you'll need to be comfortable. 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. Walk out and enjoy the many stars visible in the dark night sky from the PRIVATE PORCH off this bedroom. Or use the downstairs bedroom with a KING BED and soak in the WHIRLPOOL TUB or SHOWER in the ADJOINING TILE BATH. A third bedroom offers 1 or 2 TWIN BEDS. All bedrooms have PRIVATE OUTSIDE ENTRANCES.

You'll appreciate the diverse activities surrounding this secluded yet centrally located home. Hike, bike or drive to the forests, streams, hot springs, Gila River, canyons, or Gila Cliff Dwelling National Monument. Or if you prefer town activities, there are restaurants, music, museums, art galleries, and cultural events in nearby historic Silver City.

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About: The owner, Bruce, was a factory worker, logger, newspaper reporter, PR flunkie, and unpublished fiction writer before he discovered computers and lost all interest in reality.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, NM, USA:
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:
Beyond us are only a couple of tiny communities and a hundred miles of wilderness. In this secluded environment, you can hear the diverse sounds of many different varieties of birds, view the Milky Way amidst the dark, starry night skies, watch breath-taking sunsets right from the living room, and hike many nearby trails all the while reconnecting with the natural world AND your own inner landscape.
