Property description

Beautiful Adobe home with magnificent panoramic view of Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Slow down. Take in the scenery. Enjoy the crimson hues of the mountain range at every sunrise and sunset from our unique second-story gazebo and spacious portals, or just stay cozy inside and gaze at nature from our walls of windows. After a hard day on the ski slope or from hiking, relax in the bubbly hot tub, read your favorite book by the fireplace, or sip your favorite drink on east-facing portals equipped with exterior speakers.

This well-appointed, comfortable home tastefully displays a collection of southwest potteries, paintings, lightings, custom stained glass artwork and other collectables in every room. It offers 3 bedrooms. The first master bedroom is complete with a wood-burning fireplace and an en suite bath with a whirlpool tub and double sinks. The 2nd master bedroom also sports an en suite full bath with double sinks and a spacious shower. The 3rd bedroom comes with a full bath next door. The house is equipped with a chef's kitchen, full size laundry room with washer and dryer, and luxurious linens and towels. The spacious 21' x 25' great room truly speaks to quality family time as it provides multiple seating areas, a surround sound entertainment system and a collection of table games for the young and old.

You will feel instantly welcome and pleased as you enter the house and are presented with a foyer with a fireplace and majestic mountain view. A true family get-away vacation. In the event you find the need to stay connected with the information highway, the wireless internet is in place for you.

Eastern Star Retreat is located 5.5 miles to Taos Plaza and 15 miles to Taos Ski Valley. Only a short drive to shopping, restaurants, museums, and all outdoor recreational activities including golfing, biking, hiking, horseback riding, skiing, snow boarding, fly fishing and white water rafting. Eastern Star is the perfect retreat for ALL seasons.

HOT AIR BALLOONING

Hot Air Balloons in Taos offer a unique experience where you can enjoy the view of the vast and mountainous landscape, and the rugged earth and winding water ways of the Rio Grande below. When inflating, it is noisy. But, once aloft, you'll be at awe with nature as you glide in the air. You'll feel the serenity, calmness that is uncommon in our busy daily lives and so refreshing! At the same time, a hot air balloon ride can be an exhilarating experience as you float high in the air and then dip down into the Rio Grande Gorge.

Flights usually take off in the early morning, at sunrise. Dress warm. Taos ballooning companies offer balloon safety and flight lesson, including firing off the burners and flying the balloon. If you wish, you can take the lesson. But, most just enjoy letting the pilot have the control and are there just for the ride.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Kent and I are from Texas and we love to go to Taos and be away from the humid weather for a few days. We are also in awe with the New Mexico landscape. After a few trips to Taos, we decided to buy a home here. As one of the Taos locals told us, 'The mountain is calling' and we responded heartily.

Why Taos:
If you like nature, you will love Taos. Taos county boasts wide open spaces, stretching over 50 square miles. The average number of sunny days is 300/365. It has a mixture of diverse cultures that includes that of Native Americans, Spanish and Anglo. Taos offers all kinds of outdoor activities all year round. The options are endless: e.g., skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, rafting, kayaking, hiking, golfing, horseback riding, biking, hot air ballooning. Even if you are not as much of an outdoor sport enthusiast as you would like to be (i.e., like some of us), you'd still enjoy sitting back on the porch and soaking in the beautiful weather, pristine setting, and majestic mountain views. Personally, I feel blessed whenever I am there.
