An adobe block home situated on a private dead-end road in the vicinity of the well-known Millicent Rogers Museum, this exquisite property captures northern New Mexico at its best. Known as Casa de Los Colores, this elegant residence features traditional vigas, tiled floors, and quality woodwork throughout. Large windows, bancos, and portals showcase sweeping views in almost all directions. From the moment you pull into the tree-lined main drive, it is evident that you are entering an oasis. The landscaped front entry opens into an inviting walled front courtyard (~430 sq ft) with colorful tiles, fluted fountain, built-in grill, bancos, and planters designed and installed by Shel Neymark Design. The welcoming front vestibule leads to an expansive living room featuring a large wood burning fireplace as its centerpiece. High ceilings and four sets of French doors, which open onto the north and east patios, lend to the bright and airy feel of this generous living space. The east hallway leads to two well-appointed full bathrooms and three guest bedrooms; all large, with closets and great views. Adjacent on the west side of the living room is a spacious gourmet kitchen with a large island, updated stainless appliances, custom tile backsplashes, thoughtfully designed storage and pull-outs, lovely south views. A large adjoining dining room is currently used as a sitting area for friends and family to gather. Also located on the west side of the home is the private master suite with a wood burning kiva fireplace featuring river stone accents, a large walk-in closet with sky-light, and breathtaking views to the north and east. The master bath offers a full tub and shower, double vanity sinks, and plenty of storage. To the southwest, via the well-appointed laundry room (with large countertops, a sink, wine rack, and significant cabinet storage) is access to the three-bay heated garage and mechanical room which services the home. The comfortable outdoor living spaces are all carefully designed to take advantage of northern New Mexico’s wonderful high-desert climate. The completely walled (with accent lighting) back patio area with various portals, an enchanting pergola, outdoor kiva fireplace with built-in bancos, and hot tub area is perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying the panoramic mountain views. The landscaped grounds comprise significant hardscaping, perennials, mature trees, and bushes, all maintained by a drip irrigation system. The home is wired for sound and also enjoys a security system, internet via Kit Carson high-speed fiber, heat on six zones, both a private and shared well, water softener, and a secondary on-demand Rinnai water heater. If you are looking for the perfect place to host friends and family, and make the most of what Taos has to offer, do not miss out on this stunning home! More pics at: bit.ly/northmesa
