Private and Serene Studio Space or Compound. The secret garden awaits you in Rio en Medio! Once in a lifetime do you run across an opportunity as special as this. A truly incredible property, hidden in an impossibly green and private valley, just 20 minutes to the Plaza or 10 minutes to the Opera. The original adobe pitched roof house was designed by Andrew Geer in 1990 and then a pitched roof studio, was added in 1995. Both share a breathtaking setting complete with orchards, manicured gardens, a flowing acequia (with water rights), small pond,huge trees and an organic vegetable garden. The main home features two bedrooms, one and a half baths with potentially easy expansion. The charming, separately metered studio includes one bedroom, one and a half baths, studio space and library, and is nicely sequestered from the main house. Both structures were designed for passive solar gain and the main house has an integrated active solar domestic water heating system. The current owners have recently upgraded the in-floor radiant heating systems with high efficiency boilers. Andersen windows (with warranty transferable to the new owners) were also recently added along with newer stucco on the main house. The main house kitchen has been brilliantly remodeled with high end, stainless steel appliances, new cabinets and tasteful granite counter tops. This property embodies all the true charm of Northern New Mexico!
