TERRA NOVA -a property like no other. Set in a 3.2 ac. oasis among rolling hills of sagebrush with dramatic mountain views , Terra Nova was designed as a compound, or mini-eco village by renowned architect Ekkehard Weisner to fulfill the owner’s vision of a sanctuary for healing body and spirit. Upon entering through the gate one finds themselves transported to another, more peaceful world with native plants, gardens, and trees nestling the structures. An intricate brick path leads the way through the vine covered trellis to the fountain and stunning courtyard which itself is a work of art.. Situated around the courtyard are three separate structures, three little gems. The original 1BR/1BA Hexagon (1,140sq.ft), the 2BR Guesthouse (1,012sq. ft.) and the office/studio ( 512sq.ft.) all finished with enviable attention to detail and quality and all combining the elements of nature. The owner Dr. Angelika Koch, lovingly selected and adorned the homes with custom finishes like Venetian plaster, stone mandalas, special hardware, handmade doors and cabinets, Indonesian pebbles, and stained glass. Other names like Sub-Zero, Dacor, Jenn-Air, Marvin, and Morso speak to quality. More importantly, the compound boasts eco-friendly and people friendly aspects like solar power ( 3 systems) , well water with the incredible Grander Technology filtering system, water catchment, a dome greenhouse, and drip irrigation. The homes also feature subfloor radiant heat, grid-tie-interface, and broadband. Other creature comforts are the oversized 2 car garage and hot tub. A rich history also comes with the property. Lore has it that it was a sacred spot for Indians 1,000 years ago and arrowheads and chards are still found on the property. Then in the 80’s, the hexagon was purposely built for the ‘channeling of the voice of Bartholomew” because of its spiritual energy field of the land. The structure has also served the Tibetan community of Taos with gatherings and Native American writers and teachers held sweat lodges, ceremonies, drumming and healing there. The current owner has continued in this tradition with her Practice for Integrated and Educational Medicine. Now it’s time for a new owner to enjoy the connection to Mother Nature and the inspiration it brings from this incredible property.
