Zoned residential and commercial, seven blocks from the historic business/tourism district, five blocks from WNMU, this 2-bedroom, 1-bath home with detached studio was redesigned for winter passive solar gain and summer shade, with sculptured adobe thermal mass for temperature stabilization, and modern insulation – for comfort and energy savings in all seasons.
The private gardens, designed for low maintenance and watered with rain from the steel roof and catchments, contain native and drought-resistant fruit and nut trees, grape vines, numerous herbs, and a full spring and summer of flowers, all on one-tenth acre. The home, gardens, and kitchen also all support moderately large gatherings.
I’ve lived in Silver City for ten years and love it for many, many things:
- Wonderful weather.
- Many “Top Ten” small town lists, i.e., for wilderness, outdoor recreation, retirees, arts, etc.
- The only small town in the Southwest with a food coop; it also has a Farmers Market, Permaculture guild, herb store, community garden, community radio, and more.
- Home prices were/still are modest.
More about this home can be found on this site, or by contacting me: 575-534-0123 or firstname.lastname@example.org.I’m looking for a buyer who’ll appreciate the sustainability and artfulness of this home and garden.
Thanks for passing this along!
$150,000 – price negotiable.
