With water water everywhere, this lush property overlooking the Valdez Valley is home. This appealing adobe and frame home on the picturesque Rim Road in quaint Arroyo Seco offers a comfortable, inviting living space and grounds. Two acequias border the property, resulting in an abundance of grass and trees—cottonwood, plum, apple, and apricot. A heated workshop and two heated and air-conditioned outbuildings add to the ambience. Both outbuildings and the workshop are of insulated frame construction and offer abundant storage. In the main house, you’ll find all the appeal of Northern New Mexico finishes—kiva fireplace, coved and latilla ceilings with vigas, plank and T&G ceilings with beams, and Saltillo floors. The kitchen is outfitted with a Viking Pro ceramic-top range/oven, a Viking Pro dishwasher, a refrigerator, and a dining nook with a built-in banco. Three steps lead up to a spacious living room, which has a beautiful fireplace and can easily accommodate a dining table and chairs. To the right of the kitchen are a full bath and one of the home’s three bedrooms, which has a decorative fireplace. The end of the kitchen hallway opens to a den; off the den are the home’s second bedroom, an oversized walk-in closet with built-in shelves, and a linen closet. Accordion French doors lead to the huge master suite area. Stained glass doors open to the master bedroom, which boasts a cement floor and a large walk-in closet with a heat booster. The master bath has pebbled walls, travertine floors, and a vessel sink. The master suite’s sitting room could be used as a study, studio, media room, or extra sleeping space. Also part of the master suite is the laundry room, which is outfitted with an LG steam dryer and front-load washer. The home has radiant floor heat with three zones (living room/kitchen, middle section, and back of house). The water heater was installed in 2016 and the boiler was installed in 2017. The home is on Upper Des Montes community water. Outside, you’ll find a covered porch, an easy-maintenance composite deck, a small root cellar, a ramada with a built-in banco topped by a wooden bench (excellent for al fresco dining or parties)—and all those wonderful outbuildings with metal roofs. The workshop even has a covered porch of composite decking. Ready for a workout? You can bike the nine miles to Taos Ski Valley—or just jump in the car, and you’ll be on the slopes in minutes. This home is in an outstanding location, with dreamy views of the mountains and the valley, and it has great rental potential. Once you add your personal touches, you’ll feel right at home.
