IF YOU'RE A CONNOISSEUR OF QUALITY...And have a passion for the past yet appreciate all the conveniences of today, you'll find this historic 200+ year old renovated adobe a gem. The 2,700 +/- sq ft main house boasts 3BR/3BA and beautiful living areas indoors and out. Family and friends will love the delightful 1BR/1BA guesthouse and the small green house and root cellar are a bonus. The compound sits on the Talpa ridge overlooking the Ranchos Valley and is steeped in history. Remnants of pit houses with pottery chards and arrowheads found there date back to 1100-1200 AD. By the early 1800's it was settled by Spanish colonists and then in the early 1900's the natural beauty of the area had attracted artists from all over. Today owners can enjoy the same views of mountains, the valley and the plains from many areas of the home as well as from delightful patios and portals set amidst fruit trees, flowers, pines, and pinons. Massive adobe walls, smooth hand troweled plaster, 6 fireplaces, vigas, nichos, bancos, hand hewn wood, as well as the dining room fireplace designed for cooking over the open flame, lend a sense of permanence and timelessness to the main house. The kitchens and baths were all thoughtfully and tastefully remodeled to the Taos of today with names like Viking, Sub Zero refrigerator, and Fisher Paykel. The kitchen w/pantry provides plenty of room for cooking for a crowd or a couple and the large dining room has space and views for all plus room for expanding the party to the adjoining patio. A hardwood staircase leads to the romantic upstairs master suite. Cozy by the fireplace or soak away stress in the lovely claw foot tub then head to the balcony to end the evening counting the stars and your blessing. It's picture perfect too!
