Welcome to “El Santuario”. Custom built in the late 1970’s, designed by owner and Taos artist Rod Goebel, this exquisite compound is a one-of-a-kind Old World Northern New Mexico masterpiece! This beautiful, efficient and meticulously maintained compound situated on 6.23 acres is truly a hidden gem! Guesthouse has been a successful short term rental, reviews on Airbnb are top notch. See "virtual tour" above for Airbnb link. Nestled amongst mature aspens at the end of a road, this home is private, quiet and a welcomed haven from all the hustle and bustle. The 3,911 square foot 2 bedroom / 2 bath main house and 1,259 square foot 1 bedroom / 1 bath adobe guesthouse boast of many traditional features including reclaimed barn wood doors, brick floors, Spanish tile and hand carved doors (inspired by the Fetchin house). Architectural details and quality craftsmanship throughout. Dramatic living spaces…a fireplace in the den is an artist inspired design, gold leaf ceiling in the living/dining room (formerly the artist’s Northlight studio) are just a few of the unique artistic touches. A large, covered portal with dining table for gathering and dining al fresco, hot tub with chaise lounges surrounding a fire pit create a spa like ambience, a chapel reminiscent of old New Mexico, a studio for star gazing plus several meandering paths leading to other sacred spaces where one can retreat, relax and rejuvenate. A spacious greenhouse for the gardening enthusiast. Spring fed pond, seasonal stream, aspen groves, fruit trees and wildflowers add to this nature sanctuary’s canvas. There are 2 wells and natural gas. A 3-car garage with a 3-car carport complete the picture. This property has so many possibilities. Only 12 minutes to downtown Taos and a short drive to Arroyo Seco and Taos Ski Valley!
