SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Former CIA operative, author and activist Valerie Plame Wilson is selling her home in New Mexico.

Sotheby’s International Realty has the gated compound on the market for $2.1 million. It’s in an affluent neighborhood on the northeast side of Santa Fe.

County records show the property is owned by Plame and her husband, Joe Wilson, a former ambassador.

Plame confirmed Friday that the home is for sale but said they are “absolutely not leaving New Mexico.” She and her family have lived in Santa Fe for about a decade.

In 2003, Plame was exposed as a CIA operative by officials of the George W. Bush administration in an effort to discredit her husband, who had criticized the decision to invade Iraq.

Plame’s memoir was a best-seller. She is a consultant to the Santa Fe Institute, a member of the Global Zero Leadership board and is co-author of a series of espionage novels.

According to the listing , the family’s 4,609-square-foot home includes four bedrooms, five bathrooms, 11 fireplaces, custom bookcases and niches for displaying art. It was decorated by Los Angeles designer Thomas Callaway.

Aside from views of the surrounding Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the property has solar panels, a rain catchment system and a guest house.
