Located in in the small Village of El Rito is a beautiful home centrally located for the individuals that enjoy peace and tranquility, near mineral springs and outdoor adventures like hunting , fishing, cross country or down hill skiing, even mountain climbing. Across from the local Catholic church, set back from the highway and very private. Turn off main street, cross the acequia, and pass the large old cottonwood tree and you are home, with apple and apricot trees, along with several globe willows and the fruitless mulberry tree. Enjoy the front porch and watch the cars go by as you listen to the church bells ring, sipping your morning coffee or tea and taking in the fresh air. Enter the home to a small foyer that opens up to the formal living room to the left and the formal dining room ahead. The bedroom and baths are tucked away in the back, allowing for privacy. Beyond the dining room is the kitchen, beyond that is a cozy family room, and beyond that is another family room or recreation room. Walk out the sliding door to a nice covered porch to enjoy the sounds of nature as well as the vistas. The outside shop (163 sq ft) is a great craft room for creative minds, currently used by owner as a woodworking shop to make beautiful furniture. Beyond the structures is a verdant pasture land, a few acres and the views of the Sange de Cristo Mountain Range. Nice, cozy, and inspiring.
