The adobe walls of Tierra Madre are cool in the summer and warm in winter. This spacious home was designed with the comfort of guests in mind. An adobe house feels like no other. Heavy beams (vigas) span the ceilings in the traditional manner while thick plaster coats the walls. Warmth is provided by radiant floor heat. Imagine living as the Pueblo Indians have for thousands of years, but with all of the modern conveniences. Yes, you can even bring your own notebook computer and enjoy the free wi-fi.
Tierra Madre is north of town, just 15 minutes from the ski valley and five minutes from town. You will feel like you have come home as you snuggle under down comforters and build a fire in the Kiva fireplace. Everything is provided from an espresso coffeemaker to comfortable chairs for those afternoons when all you want to do is read a book.
The outside hot tub is the perfect place to watch shooting stars dart across the dark skies of Taos. For those of you who can't get enough of the great outdoors an adobe walled flagstone patio overlooks the vast expanse of BIA land (Indian Pueblo land). Only an occasional cow can be seen from this private getaway.
It is obvious why the famous painter RC Gorman chose to live right across the road. This is a place of special beauty.

This is a prime location to stay at located in between Taos and Taos Ski valley. Close to Taos for groceries, restaurants, and shopping, yet also close to Ski valley for skiing and forest hiking. Close but so nice with the quiet relaxing location It has BIA (federal land) on 2 sides so there are vast views of sunsets out the back windows or from the patio. Great views of the sunrise and the mountains out the front windows.
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: After years of owning our own business we decided it was time for Chapter Two(or three). We lived in Tanzania, Guyana and Ukraine working for the US Peace Corps for about 10 years. As of January 2014 Jim is back in Taos and Anne commutes from Taos to different Peace Corps location around the World on short term assignments.
Why the Owner Chose Taos: We vacationed in Taos in 1990's and fell in love with it. We returned time and time again until We bought a house in 1999 and moved to Taos in 2000. We loved the year round beauty of the mountains, the artists, and fantastic sunshine. We finally found the perfect piece of land to build a custom home and built a home with the views, comfort and privacy as our first 3 priorities. It has BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs)land on 2 sides for maximum privacy. It is located between Taos and Ski Valley , close to everything yet it is a relaxing private place.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Sunset views, mountain views. Sitting on the flagstone patio sipping on my morning coffee, soaking up the sunshine and the beautiful views. The perfect way to start the day.
After a great day of skiing, hiking, hitting the river, biking or taking in some new galleries I love to wait until after dark, turn out all the house lights and go out to the Jaccuzzi and just sit in the dark with the jets off and watch the bright stars.
