Birds of a Feather is excited to offer six magnificent lots in Hawk's Landing (phase II) designated for our energy efficient homes called “Los Nidos” or “the nests”...
Choose from our 1275 (Chickadee) or 1425 sq. ft. (Bluebird) architect-designed floor plans and pick your favorite pine-forested lot ranging in size from .44 to one-acre. Next, decide how to "feather your nest" with healthy and eco-friendly materials. You may also get your new home LEED certified (US Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), if you wish. The benefit is an extremely energy efficient home! You may also choose from our Southwestern-style flat roof or Northern New Mexico pitched roof designs.
If you aren't quite ready to move to your new home in our community, you may purchase a lot now and take up to five years to begin construction on any Phase II lot or take three years to build on any Phase I lot.
Los Nidos homes were designed in collaboration with local architect, David Madden of EcoNest Design, Santa Fe, LLC and Mark Giorgetti of Palo Santo Designs, LLC to create a healthy and energy efficient home sanctuary.
Each of our floorplans include 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, fireplace, double-car garage and large outdoor covered portals. The larger floorplan includes an office/den.
