For Sale By Owner

15 Tierra Madre Rd , Placitas, NM, 87043, USA, 2753 sq. ft., 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms . Seller's Description: This is a true Adobe 'home' not just a house. You'll feel the difference as soon as you walk in. Located in Placitas just 2 miles off I-25, its quick and easy on and off the highway but the feel is all country. One of the advantages of living in Placitas is that the East of the river location alleviates the Westside river crossing traffic headaches. Another advantage is the 'country' feel of the area, while less than 20 miles from the heart of downtown Albuquerque. In addition, the Rail Runner Station is only 2.5 miles from the home, so Santa Fe or Albuquerque is really within a very easy, and comfortable commute.<br /> <br /> A well-appointed grocery, a local art gallery, two restaurants and beautiful trails are all within walking distance of the home. Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and several restaurants are less than 3 miles away. But don't let the conveniences mislead you, the house is definitely not in a high traffic area - just a great location! The property is flat and completely useable with mature Pinons and Junipers. Zoning allows for horses, no HOA allows for freedom. <br /> <br /> This passive solar home features 2,753 sq ft w/3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas, with a large private drive, which allows for easy parking for several vehicles. What's more, a hard to find large detached garage is located behind the house. It is finished and insulated, and will make an avid hobbyist ecstatic. The garage has plenty of separate parking and features a workshop space and its own separate septic system. The garage is already pre-plumbed for a bathroom, and comes with a large swamp cooler of its own. <br /> <br /> Home features red brick flooring, vigas throughout with latillas and cedar ceilings. Stunning. Main LR and MBR both have wood burning kivas and killer views! Spacious country kitchen has been beautifully remodeled with all new custom cabinetry and poured in place cement countertops by Milagro. The kitchen was remodeled with high-end appliances in mind so your dream appliances will fit beautifully (A Fridigaire Imperial antique stove comes with the home, but was removed for repair work when the pictures were taken). Kitchen features a large lazy susan, a cleverly hidden and spacious pantry, a beautiful cast iron and enamel farm sink w/top of the line faucet and pot filler. An eat-in counter can seat 6 people with room to spare. There is 77 sq ft of countertop! So this kitchen was definitely designed with entertaining in mind. <br /> <br /> Two enclosed courtyards allow for privacy, and both have amazing mountain views. The larger courtyard features its own kiva. So a stunning view of the Sandias in front of a private fire can be the norm. <br /> <br /> Inside, a wall of windows stretch across the kitchen, dining room and into the main LR, which provide absolutely splendid views of the Sandias from most of the house. All of these windows have wood shutters original to the home.<br /> <br /> Large MBR has French doors that open into a small private courtyard and again, a remarkable view. A row of upper windows allows for beautiful starry night views from bed. Master bath has his/hers sinks, walk in closet, freestanding claw-foot bathtub and shower. Spare bedroom boasts a hideaway loft with a row of windows facing the Sandias which makes a great play/sleep area for kids or guests, or extra storage if needed. This home is absolutely New Mexico True!<br /> <br /> *History of the home: The house was designed and constructed by Thomas Ashe. This home was built in the true Adobe style with 18" Adobe on the North side of the home, and +/- 12" Adobes on the South, East and West sides. The home has lots of natural light. In our opinions, the natural materials used give this home an "Earthy" feel that is impossible to come by in a traditional "stick home".<br /> <br /> The following are excerpts from the Abq Journal regarding Mr. Ashe:<br /> <br /> "A room with a view isn't enough for Tom J. Ashe. The whole house should have one." That's why the owner and founder of Tom J. Ashe Homes has chosen to build solely in Placitas for the last 30 years. His passion for the natural beauty and sweeping vistas of the mountain village began while he was in college studying photography and architecture and working in construction. The first house he worked on was built there, and his love for its landscape has never faltered.<br /> <br /> "People come to Placitas because they deem the natural world to be important," Ashe said.<br /> <br /> Ashe's houses use natural materials, providing a sense of warmth. [...] Hand-split cedar planks line the ceilings and skylights let in light." Ashe also tries to build with local products. <br /> <br /> He chooses lots with uninterrupted vistas in subdivisions that pride themselves on open spaces. "I want Placitas to look like people's concept of how New Mexico should look," he said.
