Dixon house description

'El Nido del Rio Grande' - The Nest of the Big River (or 'River Nest') house is a beautiful new 2,000 sf 'Santa Fe style' house in the river canyon between Santa Fe and Taos. Located in an historic apple orchard along the Rio Grande in Rinconada, New Mexico, near Dixon and Embudo, this property is a dream house with a private beach along the river-perfect for swimming, fishing, floating and relaxing. This green, tree-filled property is only 20 miles from Taos and 45 miles from Santa Fe, close to all the wonderful museums, shops, restaurants and galleries you love. Located on the Rio Grande itself, river runners of all sorts are beckoned to our beach landing floating or running the whitewater Race Course.

The upstairs master suite includes a queen bed, a private balcony with views of the river canyon across the orchards, and a stone-tile bathroom with a lovely deep bath tub below corner windows with magnificent views of sky and canyon. Two downstairs bedrooms are spacious and cozy; one has a queen bed, the other has two twin beds. A queen-sized sleeper sofa and a second full sized sofa are located in the living room for additional sleepers. The spacious Great Room has high ceilings, a wood fireplace, and is beautifully furnished. It opens to a full kitchen with granite counter tops and all appliances, and onto a patio ('portal') a great outdoor living and eating area. The house also has a large laundry room with washer & dryer, and a two-car carport.

With easy access to Santa Fe, Taos, and all the rural artist studios of northern New Mexico, this brand new house offers convenient, cozy and reasonable accommodations for your group in a classic northern New Mexico setting. It is a beautiful and comfortable property for all seasons and moods. We welcome you to our little bit of heaven along the Rio Grande in New Mexico!

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: We bought El Nido as our retirement spot. Hope to become a gentleman farmer. The wife says I will make the farmer part. Fell in love with the river, the orchard , the neighbors and the down home atmosphere of rural northern NM. We count our blessings each time we stay here.

                  Why Dixon:
                  We wanted a project for retirement like raising apples plus we are kayakers and rafters, skiers, hikers, golfers and love the meditative atmosphere of all the trees and flowing El Rio Grande.
