Property Description

One of a kind – this spacious, 3445 sq ft, 3 bedroom/2bath, double-adobe, owner-built home is a magnificent blend of authentic norteño finishes and building techniques folded into a contemporary floor plan. Here you will find the rich colors and textures of sealed mud floors in most rooms with flagstone in the kitchen (and tile in the baths); straw infused mud plaster walls; ceiling vigas throughout with split-cedar boards in the living room, pine latillas in the study and the kitchen and T&G elsewhere; punched tin cabinet doors in the kitchen and custom carved doors that feature the squash-blossom motif. In addition, this home has a true rarity- look for several single-plank, hewn, pintle-hinged doors – an item you see on rare occasions in homes from the 19th century. The split floor plan makes for easy living – on the north side is the primary bedroom suite with a large walk-in closet and an updated bath. And just beyond is a view and light-filled, private study that will surely become your favourite place to hide out. The guest wing splits off the living room to the south and each of the guest rooms open on to the southerly courtyard that is anchored by a wide gazebo featuring a tile mosaic created by the current owners. Every room has a southwest-style fireplace for a total of 6, in the living room its modified to incorporate an insert. Every wing has skylights to bring in natural light to hallways while allowing cool and cozy of the adobe home prevail in the sleeping areas. Modern upgrades in the main house include thermopane & metal-clad windows, an updated principal bath, a cook’s kitchen with stainless Bosch appliances (including a dual fuel stove). Outside you will find secluded courtyards north and south that allow you to enjoy the views and clean air of Taos in a private setting. A major addition – around the corner is the detached 900 sq ft straw-bale studio added in 2004 that flawlessly blends in with the original home and features a full bath, high ceilings, 240 volt power, large windows, electric heat and a wood stove. The 2 sets of double doors on the studio make this a versatile space for making art, creating a workshop or converting to a living space/spare room/guesthouse. This is that rare home that comes on the market once in a lifetime. These are only the second owners and they can attest to the magic that comes from living in a home as unique as this one.
