Taos house description

Desert Oak is an authentically restored, architecturally designed adobe home. From the moment you walk through the custom latilla gate into a private courtyard, you are surrounded by the comfort of a unique home designed in an elegant, southwestern style. Custom details include hand-sewn timber beams, imported Mexican tile and a traditional fireplace. French doors and skylights allow an abundance of sunlight and air to flow throughout the interior. There is a large courtyard in front (with a view of majestic Taos Mountain) and a secluded backyard with a private hot tub. A flexible plan allows the Main House (sleeps 8) or the Suite (sleeps 4) to be rented individually. They may also be combined to create a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2 kitchen home that will comfortably accommodate to 12 people. 'Live the Essence of Taos'. You will be within walking distance of over 15 Restaurants, many Bars, Galleries, Shops & Museums Very Convenient to Taos Ski Valley, Angel Fire, Red River and Santa Fe.
