Our home is your home. We offer you a sprawling 3500 sq. ft ranch style home with level entry and walk-in shower for guests that have trouble negotiating stairs and bathtub access. The property encompasses 1.5 acres and there is plenty of level parking and easy year round even with snow.
The home has many attributes to offer including newly installed central A/C and heat. In 2017 we installed all new laminate wood flooring throughout living areas and bedrooms. Bedrooms: One king and 1 queen bed located in the large master bedroom, 1 queen bed in the bedroom located off the hallway, 1 full and 1 twin sleeper sofa located in the office and plenty of room to accommodate two deluxe queen air mattress when needed. 2 queen beds located up in the loft bedroom. There are 3 very nice sized bathrooms that are tastefully decorated. A full bathroom is located in between the office and the master bedroom. There is another full bathroom off the hallway next to the hallway bedroom. Upstairs in the loft area there is another full bathroom. A large living area with a wood burning stove and a bar that leads out to patio/deck area. There is queen sleeper sofa in living room with the new, improved memory foam mattress which is actually very comfortable to sleep on. WiFi internet and cable TV are available for your use. A very large kitchen with every gadget imaginable and all new stainless steel appliances that includes a huge refrigerator and ice maker. The kitchen has an RO water system installed so ice and drinking water taste great. No need to haul drinking water. A huge plus for Ruidoso! An open floor plan between the kitchen and dining area provides plenty of sitting for all. The dining area also has a wood burning stove for your enjoyment and beautiful log stairway that leads to loft area.
The home also has radiant in-floor heating throughout so there is a constant comfortable heat without the noise of a heater kicking on and off. Since the home is located right next to the river, it stays very cool in summer but central A/C and heat is available if needed. There is a large laundry room for your use if needed. The hot tub room is situated closest to the river and has built-in surround sitting benches and lots of windows that provide a light, airy atmosphere that makes a perfect place to curl up with a good book. The deck is built over the river and has lots of seating available to enjoy under the canopy created by the huge ash and walnut trees. It is so peaceful and secluded- and makes you feel as though you are in your very own paradise. The patio is next to the deck and has a BBQ grill with propane included, patio tables and a fire pit where we enjoy sitting by the fire in the evenings while roasting hot dogs and marshmallows and breathing in the mountain air. The grand kids love this spot. At the front of the house there is a covered porch where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee and watch horses and chickens and 2 dwarf Nigerian goats (Tripod and Grover) start their day or do some bird watching with the numerous finches, hummingbirds and robins that frequent the area. We have a large yard with lawn and flower bed areas and has been described as an oasis by many. This home has been a work in progress since we bought it in 2004 and we have customized it with ideas originating from homes where I spent my younger years on ranches in northeast NM. Summer of 2015 we added a volleyball area and horseshoe pitching pit both with sand and a mini basketball cement court. All game accessories provided.
