Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I grew up in the Midwest and was delighted to find a place to cross-country ski where the winter was sunny and bright and not bitter cold. After moving to Austin, TX., Taos was a welcome relief from the hot summers.

Why the Owner Chose Taos:
As some of the early artists who made their way to Taos remarked, it's the incredible light. La Loma Plaza is a very unique location tucked away in town of Taos. The seasons in all have a special beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Most of the gorgeous furniture was hand painted by local artist, Jim Wagner. the adobe walls keep the house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The portal is a pleasant place to sit outside and enjoy the changing light of the day.
