Located just off Highway 64, this parcel of land is located within Tres Piedras Estates, a master planned subdivision, platted out and pinned back in the 1960’s. Sitting just twenty minutes outside the vibrant community of Taos, and close to the slopes and trails of the world famous Taos Ski Valley, this land is perfect for anyone looking to live an “off grid” lifestyle, as zoning laws within the county are generally very relaxed. This fact alone makes the area ideal for anyone with an RV who’s looking for land they can vacation to, camp on, or park and live on for a long period of time without being hassled by local officials. This also makes the area fitting for other types of “off grid” dwellings such as earth ship homes, tiny homes, shipping container homes, etc.
About Tres Piedras Estates:
All parcels within the Tres Piedras Estates subdivison have legal access, as roads and easements were allowed for in the original Plats of the area. A four wheel drive or other off-road capable vehicle may be required to navigate some of the roads. As is to be expected, some areas are easier to get to than others, some roads are easier to drive on than others.
Power can be found nearby on the 64 and in some of the parcels closer to that highway, but city utilities have not yet been extended into the further parts of the subdivision, hence making solar energy a necessary but affordable solution. When the day comes that power lines are extended throughout this area, however, the value of this land will increase immeasurably making this an even better investment.
Wells are generally considered infeasible in this area and most residents either rely on rainwater catchment systems or refillable tanks for their drinking water.
If you’re purchasing land to build you should check with the county zoning office to learn what permits are required on land smaller than 3/4 of an acre.
Taos County has very relaxed zoning laws, and in an area such as this which is zoned County Rural Area, a person can park an RV and live out of it for 180 Days even without a building permit. Realistically, one can probably live out of it for much longer as it’s doubtful that anyone in county government is keeping track of how long what is parked where.
