Property Description

Contemporary custom home with stunning mountain views and a productive organic orchard. The light-filled main level features a large bedroom (non-conforming; currently used as an office), a half bath and a great room opening onto a wraparound deck. The lower level walks out onto a brick patio and includes a master suite with full bath, a third bedroom, a second full bath and a large laundry/utility/storage room.

Part straw bale, part frame construction with lime plaster and cedar siding, the home is extremely energy efficient with in-floor radiant heat and passive solar design. A wood-burning stove provides a cozy atmosphere on cold winter nights. The solar domestic hot water is backed up with an electric boiler.

The 24-acre Rogers Mesa orchard has been certified organic since 2015 and is planted to peaches, apples, sweet cherries and table grapes. One acre of sweet cherries is under high tunnel frames with propane heaters. The high-efficiency irrigation system employs two stages of filtration, a concrete settling basin, and micro-sprinklers throughout. Three wind machines, with a propane tank for each, provide frost protection.

Improvements include a 3-sided 20x75 equipment shed and a 30x65 packing shed/shop building with a 3/4 bath and a 750 sq.ft. drive-in cooler. Farm equipment is available separately.

A 13KW photovoltaic system connects to the grid and generates nearly all of the electricity needed for the house, cooler and equipment shed. The irrigation pump to the orchard is on a separate electric meter. The packing shed has its own septic system. The property has a total of 6 propane tanks (the one at the house is buried) leased from AmeriGas.

The orchard is leased through the 2020 growing season.

What our clients say

Hi Bob & Linda: Just thought I would write to you two and let you know my thoughts on the real estate transactions that you brokered for me. I have dealt with a lot of real estate brokers in the last 40 years and am very cautious when buying or selling in a new area. I called on one of your listings and talked to you at length about it. I was engaged in a large 1031 exchange so I was looking for a broker with expertise in this area. I came to your area and looked over the ranch I had called about and it wouldn't do so we started looking for something that would work for us. You folks were so professional and you really did a lot of digging for us. When we made several offers on ranches you really did your homework and I was impressed by your work ethic. We ended up purchasing a ranch thru you and were really pleased. It was a painless 1031 Exchange transaction. A year later you called me and told me you had a buyer who wanted our ranch that you had sold us and you asked if I wanted to sell the place. I said I wasn't really looking to sell but if the price was right and I could find a replacement ranch I would consider it. A month later we had the property closed and again it was so smooth. You two are absolutely the finest professional Realtors I have ever worked with. I am pleased not only to have you as my real estate professionals but consider you as good friends also. Good friends are way more important to us than the business stuff. Thank you again,

- Bob and Yvonne Neary
