This picture-perfect authentic adobe Northern New Mexico home offers all the charm of times past and all the conveniences of a contemporary home. The original home built in 1940with a more recent addition of a fully updated kitchen and dining area. The secluded property is surrounded by latillas as well as wire fencing and includes an art studio and guesthouse. The centuries-old acequia allows 2.75 acre-feet of water rights. The lot is a spacious, pastoral 1.46 acres in the middle of town. Drive into the property located in the “green belt of Taos” through a security gate. There are numerous rose and lilac bushes, cherry and plum trees as well as aspen trees that enhance the property. The yard is lush and green. Take the brick path to the portal, where french doors open into a relaxing sitting room with a corner kiva fireplace. To your right is the kitchen, which features stainless-steel appliances perfect for the gourmet and the novice alike: a six-burner Wolf gas stove, a Sub-zero refrigerator and an Asko dishwater. The double-sided stainless sink is set at an angle just below the bar that defines the kitchen from the dining area. Sealed sandstone countertops and glass-front cabinetry keep the look friendly and inviting. The floors are stained concrete and the cathedral ceiling has stunning wood beams. From the dining room, a set of french doors opens to the master bedroom with large windows, antique doors and a corner kiva fireplace. The master bath has a clawfoot tub, ample storage space, and an open shower of wood-look porcelain tile. On the other side of the master bath is the first guestroom, which connects to the second guestroom. The large formal living room has a beautiful wood-burning fireplace and a door to the front porch. A wetbar area has a single stainless-steel sink, a stone countertop, and casement windows. Exotic antique doors set flush in the wall conceal shelving. Off the wet bar are both the guest bath, with its pedestal sink and stone-tiled shower, and the laundry room. Throughout the oldest section of the home, you’ll find mica mud-plastered walls, beam and plank ceilings, window panels with distinctive brick sills, herringbone patterned brick floors and handmade doors. Lighting is a mixture of lovely custom fixtures, track, and pendant lights. The back courtyard, surrounded by an exposed adobe wall, has seen many happy hours of entertaining of just relaxing and enjoying the beauty of Taos. The views of the mountains from your chairs are breathtaking. Part of the courtyard has a covered porch with a brick floor with the remainder of the courtyard showcasing a flagstone patio, where full grown aspens shade the hot tub. Landscaping includes colorful, pretty flowerbeds. Wooden gates lead to the backyard, side yard, and front porch. The large studio and guesthouse is separate from the main house. It encompasses a single-car garage with a glass-paneled door, an art studio with amazing windows and light. The tranquil guesthouse or potential rental has a bedroom/sitting room, a large eat-in kitchen, and a guest bath with a shower. The guesthouse portion of the structure has radiant floor heat, and both the studio and the guesthouse have stained cement floors, vaulted ceilings with fans, and built-ins. Imagine yourself in this serene, secluded living place so close to all that Taos and living in Taos has to offer.
