Property description

This is one of Taos’ historic properties. The original adobe home was first built around 1895. It has been added onto over generations with great care to detail, structural and cultural integrity. Current owners have been on the property for over 40 years. It is rare to find such a large parcel, so meticulously maintained and with such strong water rights, this close to the Taos Plaza.

The property is a peaceful, secluded retreat with outstanding views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, majestic trees and lush green meadows. The land is ideal for an equestrian property or even as a residential compound, as is it’s current use.

The main home is a 5600 sq. foot adobe, 2 stories, 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom and full of the charm and character you would expect from a northern New Mexico hacienda. Plaster treated walls, luxurious tiles and intricate woodwork give all the markings of a Taos classic. The home has been well maintained and cared for and is ready for immediate enjoyment. Each room is gracefully tied to outdoor spaces, with each of the bottom floor rooms having direct access to the outdoors and the upstairs rooms with wonderful windows, allowing for tremendous views and abundant natural light.

The 2,816 sq. ft. guest home is Pueblo style, flat roof and features a very open floor plan with tremendous natural light. The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathroom layout is very spacious with many glass doors connecting with the outside spaces.
