The apples have been picked, the Casa is still for sale–although there has been some interest lately.
I’ll try to answer some questions that always arise even though they are mostly addressed elsewhere in this blog or on the web page http://CasaJuanGalan.com.
Yes there is water for all year round use from the rain and snow collection. I did have to have water delivered one drought year–cost me about $150. Now there is a community subscription well down the road towards Taos. Some folks use this for their drinking water. The Casa has a reverse osmosis filter for drinking water.
The property is 3/4 acre–(3) 1/4 a. lots together in an “L” shape.
My opinion is that the house is a great size for one person or a couple. It might be too small for children also. But, another room or more could be added if one wanted to spend more money. The pavilion attached to the tank house could be closed in to make a nice studio or office. It’s about 8′ x 12′ . The ‘bedroom’ is about 8′ x 16′ with a queen size loft at one end.
In regards to owner financing, I haven’t quite figured that out yet. I would probably give a better price with more money out front. I would have to work that out with the buyer. I don’t think I can give a fixed answer yet.
There are no community or governmental regulations that would keep one from having animals.
I will try to answer any other questions you may have. Please, if you’re not serious, don’t start a dialogue.
PS, Kona (see previous post), a little short of her 19th birthday, has decided that she can no longer walk. Therefor, we may not be able to have anyone ‘dogsit’ her this winter.
