Taos house description

A captivating 2900 square foot retreat on 5 acres surrounded by tall Pinon and Austrian pines, mature deciduous trees and boasting of incredible mountain views in all directions. A large portal with deck facing north and east and private garden sanctuary off the dining area offer extended luscious outdoor living. A very large and new private hot tub offers wondrous star gazing after a day of sight seeing, skiing, hiking and fishing. There is a 2 car garage available to store your equipment. Once inside, guests enjoy a haven of delight from the light filled country kitchen and the charming living room with wood burning Kiva fireplace opening to the plant-filled solarium (sun room). When your party tires of the incredible mountain views the 50 inch flat screen TV is there for additional visual pleasure and entertainment. A large master suite with spa-like bath and Swedish sauna is adjacent to the den which contains a queen size custom built Murphy bed, queen size futon and Satellite TV.

Previous owners (2 Taos artists) added an upscale and very large contemporary luxury bathroom. Included are his and hers separate vanities and sinks. The soaking tub, separate from the double shower head stall shower, leads to the Swedish sauna which are all there for your added relaxation and pleasure. Luxurious upscale bedding and furnishings are offered in a meticulously cared for home with abundant Taos charm. This unique adobe rental home is truly a Taos oasis waiting to serve the party looking to get away from it all and experience absolute serene privacy in an authentic adobe home.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: I am Maria Dickerson, owner of Las Piedras, a beautiful home in Taos, NM. I live in Northern California and have always loved the Southwest.

              Why the Owner Chose Taos:
              Las Piedras is located in a wonderful area of Taos. It is an easy 20-30 minute drive to the Taos Ski Valley and just minutes to the Taos Plaza. The home has absolute privacy, yet is close to nearby attractions (Millicent Rogers museum, Rio Grande Gorge) and minutes away from the center of town with many outstanding restaurants and shops. The views from the home are stunning.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Las Piedras is a home with spa-like amenities. Visitors can be content not leaving the premises because you are surrounded by 5 acres of privacy. A large hot tub with beautiful views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, a large soaking tub, dry Swedish Sauna and all the modern amenities of wireless high speed internet, and a 50 inch plasma HDTV provide relaxation and entertainment. Las Piedras is much more than a rental home and it is furnished with high quality linens, beds, furniture and kitchen equipment.
