This property, which includes a beautiful house on top of a hill and 23.5 acres located in Silver City, New Mexico, is an astronomer's dream come true with its dark skies.  If you're looking for dark skies properties for sale, please take a look at our website and slideshow below. We loved living in this house, but I have had to move to Colorado, so it is for sale.

FYI, this property is for sale by owner; no realtor will be involved if you contact me through this website.

This property is unique real estate situated on 23 acres, under dark skies. 

This beautiful house for sale by owner, located just north of the Granite Gap astronomy community, is a piece of real estate in southwest New Mexico. The property is just 3 hours from Tucson, is located just outside Silver City, NM and is unique among dark skies properties for sale.  It 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.
