IF YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR THE PAST yet enjoy all the comforts of today, you'll appreciate the artful blend of past and present in this intriguing property just steps from historic Taos Plaza. Built in the mid 1800's the home was rumored to once be the girlhood home of Josefa Jaramillo who would become the wife of Kit Carson and Maria Ignacia Jaramillo who would become the wife of Gov. Charles Bent. This traditional adobe hacienda has been lovingly remodeled as a family compound which can sleep up to 16-18. The main wing boasts a 2BR/2BA home plus a studio apt. and features an inviting living room w/kiva fireplace, a luxe master suite with spacious bath complete with clawfoot tub, walk-in rain shower w/stone surround and a copper topped vanity. The kitchen has been upgraded yet retains the flavor of the past with the dining room enjoying an open feel with windows overlooking the courtyard. The second bedroom has 4 queen bunks and bath with 2 exterior, custom vanities for the convenience of guests. The studio/bedroom has its own bath and small kitchen so can become a part of the house or can be closed off for a rental. Looking for some -"you" time? The other wing houses a private 2nd master suite with a tasteful living area, kitchenette, bath, plus the relaxing bedroom, spa like bath, and walk-in closet. Thoughtful planning included a separate heated closet for ski, boots, etc. and the studio unit at the end a long-term rental if you wish. Both wings have lots of carved wood, stone sinks, custom cabinetry, vigas, and thoughtful, beautiful details but the best news is that the electrical, plumbing, boiler, windows, and skylights have been upgraded or replaced. The walled courtyard in front provides a firepit in the winter for sitting with friends and sipping a few and a ramada for Summer fun like bar-b-ques and dining under the stars. The location is ideal for walking everywhere in-town, yet you're tucked off the main drag on quiet Quesnel. The Central Business District zoning allows options that most areas of town don't. Access to TSV and Angel Fire are easy as is the short drive to hiking, biking, fishing, golfing - you name it. Many furnishings negotiable. Isn't it time to own a piece of Taos "magic"?
