Deming, New Mexico USA
The ranch is set on 340 acres of Yucca wildlands, hosting countless species of birds.
Set at the foot of the beautiful Florida Mountains of Southwest, New Mexico, the Sunshine Wells Ranch is a relaxing retreat into the skies and wildlife of the high desert. Used as an astronomy themed bed & breakfast for several years, it is now a private family residence.
The ranch includes a two bedroom, two bath owner’s suite over work areas, storage and garages (5,552 sq. ft.); a five bedroom, three bath guest house (2,514 sq. ft.); and an office/observatory (343 sq. ft.) with four telescopes.
A state of the art grid-tie solar energy system generates 5 kilowatts of electrical power, with a battery backup for grid failures. There are no electric bills, and surplus is sold to the utility. The owner’s suite uses solar hot water radiant floor heat. With the exception of propane, the ranch is fully self-sufficient. Two wells, one being solar powered with a 5,000 gallon indoor storage tank, provide ample high quality water to this desert oasis. The property also has 10 acres of developable agricultural water.
The walls of the half acre central courtyard protect a 12’ x 50’ lap pool, 8 person spa, water features, observation platforms and rose gardens. All designed by an award winning architect.
