DescriptionYou’ll love this exquisite and roomy territorial-style home! Inspired by the historic territorials of Northern New Mexico, with their distinctive pitched roofs and deep covered porches, this custom-designed 5BR/3.5BA/3200sf two-story home was built in 2000. It’s located on 7.13 acres. Not one but two rivers border the land—and the property comes with acequia rights. The drive to this property is a short 6.3 miles from Taos Plaza, but as you travel down a nice gravel road, you’ll feel as if you’re heading deep into the country. What a fantastic refuge from concrete and traffic! This is valley land, so there’s plenty of grass. Gravel paths meander through the gardens. The property features a small but productive orchard of apple trees—plus a peach tree that is laden with fruit by mid-August. There are also evergreens, shade trees, and abundant red willow. The main house has a wrap-around covered porch. When you step inside the front door, you’ll immediately notice that the walls are plastered with indigenous micaceous clay flecked with straw. The first story of the home has concrete floors made to look like traditional mud floors but easier to maintain. The entryway opens to an enormous great room, which has a vaulted corrugated tin ceiling and a corner kiva fireplace. This room offers a warm, comfortable, hospitable atmosphere, but at the same time it’s large enough to accommodate multiple conversational seating areas. Just beyond the great room is a chef’s kitchen with an eight-burner US gas range, dual flow gas Blodgett ovens, a Viking Professional hood, a stainless steel Whirlpool refrigerator, a stainless steel Bosch dishwasher, and a double sink plus a bar sink. Open cabinetry plus a T&G ceiling lend an appealing rustic flavor, but make no mistake: This kitchen is top of the line. Just off the kitchen is a combination pantry/laundry/mechanical room with ample shelving, work space, front-load washer and dryer, and a utility sink. Across the hall is the dining room. The windows look out on the patio, gardens, and the grassy slope down to the river. Down the hall you’ll find access to a private covered porch (enjoy a soak in the hot tub), a powder room (check out the sink), and the master suite. The master bath has a spa tub, a vanity with double sinks (repurposed zinc washtubs), a spa tub, a glass-brick shower, double doors that close off the water closet, and two walk-in closets. Upstairs off two gallery-style hallways are four guestrooms and two full guest baths, one of which has an antique clawfoot tub and a pedestal sink. The upstairs has wood floors throughout. The second story of this home is airy and light. (There’s also a second washer/dryer hookup.) The property has an extremely oversized, attached, heated two-car garage lined with storage lockers tall enough to accommodate skis. Also in place are several outbuildings, including a smokehouse; a workshop with a concrete floor and electricity; and a 3BR/2BA mobile home that serves as a caretaker’s residence. Horse facilities are just waiting for your equine friends: arena, round pen, four pipe corrals with shelters, and a pasture with a large shelter suitable for hay storage, stalls, or some combination thereof. The river frontage is home to river otters as well as birds, and the covered porches make a cool, shady place to sit and listen to the water flow and the birds sing. This versatile one-of-a-kind home is in move-in condition. It’s ideal for showcasing your collection of art and antiques, or turn it into a contemporary showplace. The palette is neutral and the style is timeless. All that’s missing? You!
