Among the vast amounts of blooming ocotillos and serenity of the Chihuahuan Mountains lies this oasis on nearly 400 acres. Very unique in design, this monolithic partial-subterranean dome overlooks a grand valley that stretches towards the Chinati Mountains and Eagle Peak. The home was built in the 1980s and has been updated over the years to include over 4,000 square feet of living space. The rare design offers over 20' ceilings in the living room and 15' ceilings in the two bedrooms downstairs. The entrance to the dome is through an enclosed patio renovated in 2012 that is wrapped in windows looking out on the many mountain ranges and valleys. The courtyard offers tile and paver floors, native rock walls, and an atrium for plants. When entering the home, a spacious and grand living room hosts more picture windows to present the view. The floorplan is simple and open with a spacious kitchen that includes tiled counters and appliances and woodburning antique stove. Off the kitchen lies a wine cellar with approximately 200 square feet of shelving for a wine collection. Adjacent to the kitchen and living room is a helpful pantry and walk-in closet with a separate room that can be used as an office or study. The stairs leading to the loft are custom timbers with a hand carved door at the head of the stairs. The two bedrooms downstairs are adjoined but separated by a concrete wall. The bathrooms have been custom designed with tiled walk-in showers, wraparound concrete bench, and beautiful custom sinks.
The home was very well engineered and built with concrete and rebar and with very little maintenance. Power is provided by solar panels and water provided by the windmill and 60,000 storage tank. Completely off-grid and a serene hideaway.
