About This Home
Located adjacent to the historic Los Luceros, in the cottonwood studded Northern Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico, this gracious home and small farm offers a rare opportunity. For many years these four and a half acres supplied area farmer's markets with beautiful organic produce and products, and it still can. The water is abundant, supplied by historic acequia systems. The land is intensively planted and equipped. The home is an energy efficient traditional adobe construction - spacious three bedroom, three baths - boasting flagstone floors, kiva fireplaces, Mexican tile, vigas and latillas. It has solar hot water for the radiant/baseboard heating and a large photovoltaic array to provide cost free electricity. The improvements include a commercial kitchen where delicious offerings were prepared and enjoyed at Gayle’s Tea Room, a most popular spot for locals as well as travelers from far and wide. Further a shop/storage place was used as a small store. There is an attached oversize garage and a six bay equipment storage/carport. Also included are a greenhouse, hoop house, and poultry coop. Outside you will marvel at the wide open pastoral views across Los Luceros, next door. Towards the river there is a the wild and beautiful cottonwood bosque. The land is planted with a sizable orchard with a variety of fruit, a lavender field, grapes, and berries which can provide delectable field-to-fork produce for your personal enjoyment or to share with others. There is an abundance of additional space for annual crops or pasture grass. This beloved Ice Family Farm has been untended for only a short time and is priced in consideration of the bit of work needed to bring it back to its former glory.
