If you're interested in hearing more about this house, please give me a call or shoot me an email. I'd be happy to answer any questions you have regarding the house and property.


This beautiful property for sale by owner, located just north of the Granite Gap astronomy community, in southwest New Mexico, just 3 hours from Tucson, is located just outside Silver City, NM.  The house sits on top of a hill, and boasts an incredibly dark sky, a dream if you enjoy astronomy and plan to use a telescope to view the dark skies.  The property includes acreage - 23 acres of undisturbed beautiful landscape, in a 360 degree view from all angles of the house.  Since I am an amateur astronomer, I built an observatory with a roll-off roof, which sits just a few yards from the house, and with the dark skies, I am able to view millions of stars and hundreds of galaxies. There is an abundance of wildlife that will come onto the property, including deer, foxes, rabbits, and of course, many lizards.  The weather is 15 degrees cooler than Tucson, due to the 6200' elevation.
