About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps 6-8

Nestled among pines, spruce, and aspens, this unique, comfortable two story home in the Country Club subdivision is the perfect spot to spend time relaxing, sightseeing, or enjoying the many area activities. Enjoy the back deck, looking out out over a stand of pines. Listen to the winds moving up the green belt to rustle the aspen leaves and watch for occasional wild game in this quiet neighborhood.

Love the cool, pleasant summers at 8500 feet; the cool, crisp falls with colorful aspen leaves late Sept. - early Oct.; and the snow in winter and early spring.

Downstairs, find two bedrooms with 2 twins in each); full bath w/tub, shower, and laundry facilities; living room with wood burning stove; full kitchen and dining area (seats 8); sun room with table (seats 4) and sofa; fourth bedroom adjoins attached garage; back deck with built in benches and 4 garden chairs.

Located 1/2 mile (around the block) from Monte Verde Lake and 2 miles from ski and shopping area. We recommend 4 wheel drive in case of heavy snow; however, front wheel drive is usually adequate.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: Ed and I live in Bulverde, TX, near San Antonio, TX. Ed is 4th generation German settler on our ranch. We are happy to share our New Mexico home with you.

Why the Owner Chose Angel Fire, NM, USA:
An outfitter in New Mexico and Texas, this Texas owner has spent August-January in New Mexico overseeing various hunting seasons since 1977. After leasing homes in the Angel Fire 6 years, Casa Dores became our family 'home away from home.' Aside from hunting season, Casa Dores has been our destination for Christmas holidays, spring break, and summer vacations. The hunter retired in 2009, the kids are grown, and we'd like to share our 'favorite spot' with you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This custom home was built by a young architect as his first family home and is a fun place to visit. It is positioned with access to the greenbelt. We settled on this property because of its unique charm and comfortable, livable spaces, as well as its accessibility to shopping and a wide variety of activities.
