IF YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR THE PAST - yet want all the conveniences of today, you’ll appreciate the artful blend of past and present in this lovingly restored, traditional adobe home and casitas at the base of the foothills just off Kit Carson. While less than 2 miles to the historic Taos Plaza, the house sits in a tranquil oasis with privacy and views in all directions. There is 2,626 sq. ft. main house, a 3-car garage, 2 casitas, and large, additional heated spaces for studio/workshop, etc. The attention to detail is present at every turn. Hand adzed wood throughout lends warmth and character, hand troweled natural plaster provides a nuanced mix of hues, and vintage doors and fixtures enhance the home’s charm. The living room is spacious and welcoming with a corner kiva fireplace. The large kitchen is full of light and, while thoroughly modern, is in keeping with the home’s historic appeal with AGA appliances, an impressive island, a vintage chopping block and lots of custom cabinets and hand adzed window ledges. There is a large pantry w/utility sink and it, too, has custom hand adzed shelving. The kitchen boasts views of the Pedernal, Taos Mountain and the Canon foothills. The library is a book-lover’s dream and makes a perfect media room or formal dining room. The primary bedroom, once the home’s stables, has been remodeled with another corner kiva fireplace and His and Hers walk-in closets. The primary bath features a one-of-a-kind vanity, re-purposed from a tiger-oak Victorian-era post office cabinet. The vanity is accented by two custom sconces, exact replicas of those found in the master bedroom of the Fechin House, a Taos landmark. The floor mosaic is honed limestone from Tunisia. A cedar closet and a spacious laundry room complete the package. Guests will enjoy the 2nd bedroom for its old Taos feel and privacy, with a hot tub right outside the custom door. More guests? They will delight in either of the 2 casitas which look like a movie set from the Old West. Attached are a large workshop, second laundry area, and even a spot for a greenhouse for starters for the raised beds outside. In addition to the large porch off the kitchen, there are multiple outdoor seating areas, enhanced by an acequia which runs through the summer, beautiful rockwork, a custom mural with water feature, fire pit and massive boulders, all under large cottonwood trees. And one of the best parts is that the roof, plumbing, electrical, water lines, septic, boiler, water heaters and more have been replaced or upgraded. Isn’t it time you owned a piece of Taos magic?
