This property is a half mile east of Marfa, outside the city limits. It encompasses 11 acres and is less than 1 mile to downtown Marfa. A paved road and hike/bike trail provide access to town. This property incorporates four blocks (8 to 11) of the East Heights Subdivision. Each block is surveyed into ten 50’ x 125’ lots. North of Block 10 is a non-platted 2.81-acres with it’s own well. Agricultural valuation has been established with the Presidio County Appraisal District. This property has beautiful views of mountains, sunrises, sunsets, clouds, thunderstorms and dark skies. It is not subject to city property taxes, city planning nor zoning regulations and is ready for personal enjoyment or development.
The home and land are not on a floodplain. The hillcrest is underlain by bedrock which provides a great foundation for structures. The 1430 sq. ft. (Southern Pacific Section house) home has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath and abundant storage space throughout. Near the house are a storage building, a 2-car metal garage, pump house and a tank that has served as a swimming pool.
Two wells are on the property, one serves the house, and the other is within the 2.81-acre tract. A septic tank and drainfield dispose waste water. Marfa city water and sewer lines cross the tract, but they are not utilized. Natural gas is used for heating, hot water and cooking. Taxes are low due to ag exemptions.
Marfa has clean air, good water, low noise, potential solar and wind power, mild winters and cool summers. Local events include the Marfa Film Festival (May), Viva Big Bend (Jul), Marfa Lights Festival and Trans-Pecos Festival (Sep), Chinati Weekend (Oct), Alpine Art Walk (Nov), and Marfa City Limits (starting in May 2020).
