Beautifully maintained, energy efficient home in desirable Valverde Commons Subdivision located below Valverde Street just moments from downtown Taos. Valverde Commons is an intentional community of residents (over 55) that follows the concept of CoHousing. Residents are actively involved in the design and operation of their community. This 1838 square foot home designed by the owner features unique architecture reminiscent of the nautilus form. Applying artistic touches and sustainable principles, this home offers modern comforts in truly unique abode spaces. Soft color palette, curved walls, twisting barrel vault hallway, rolling ceilings add to its appeal. Triple pane windows, solar electric and 1600 gallon rain water catchment system provide sustainable comfort. ERV (Energy Recovery Ventilation), solar panels and high density insulation of an R-50+ value make this home extremely energy efficient. The front entry showcases a spectacular hand carved wooden door. The kitchen, dining and living spaces feature an abundance of natural light, bringing the outdoors in. The kitchen features custom cabinetry and two walk in pantries. The curved hallway leads to two bedrooms, bath and laundry room. The master bedroom located off the living area features a large closet, full bath and a loft to meditate, exercise or retreat. The patio off the living area is nearly enclosed in the nautilus style evoking a private outdoor space. Surround yourself in native plant and vegetable gardens. An acequia flows along the property offering added tranquility and water for the gardens. On the opposite side of this outdoor space is a 576 square foot art studio/office/work area with half bath. One car garage and a shed on .18 acre with water rights and town utilities. The homes in Valverde Commons circle a common, grassy area with paths for morning walks and sunset strolls. A common Barn offers shared landscaping tools, a complete woodworking shop and space for projects. Meetings and activities are held in the Common House. Plus the adjacent, Sunset Park, provides 10-acres of open space.
