Taos house description

The Santistevan Hacienda is truly a hidden treasure for your family vacation, under the ancient cottonwoods to offer 'eco' air conditioning and winter warmth. This beautiful, classic, rambling 3000+ square foot, adobe home has been carefully restored to keep its original charm. Located on a dead end road in a walled large lot the hcienda feels very secluded, yet it's a short walk to
the plaza.It has 3 well-spaced bedrooms for privacy and lots of room for your family to spread out and enjoy the land of enchantment. From the minute you drive into the big walled frontyard under the giant cottonwoods with a circular driveway for lots of off street parking, you will feel at home.
You can walk about 4 blocks to the old Taos Plaza to enjoy award winning restaurants and even free Thursday night local music in the summers. The world class Taos Ski Valley is only about a half hours drive and there is a golf course about 20 minutes south of town.
Ojo Caliente hot springs resort is about an hours drive, and the lovely Enchanted Circle drive takes you around Mt. Wheeler, New Mexico's largest mountain. There are several rafting companies to take in the exciting Rio Grande rapids, and the 800 ft. Rio Grande bridge is a major local attraction.
The great room living area has a large screen TV, big fireplace, and a separate reading area, with an oak round table that can accommodate up to 12 people with the extra leaves. There is even a piano . The large gourmet kitchen has a Wolf stove and is fully stocked down to the blenders and spices (we love to cook too!)
There is another fireplace by the kitchen dining area, and a separate laundry area. The 3 covered portals are roomy with swings and benches, and the large fenced backyard has room for kids or dogs. The hot tub will amaze you with the New Mexico stars, and the gas grill has lots of room to cook for a whole family. There is a large circular driveway for safe off street parking to accommodate 6 cars.
The private bedrooms.: The master bedroom is located off the kitchen next to the fireplace and has its own full bath. We have yummy bamboo sheets and down pillows in each room. The second queen room is off the east wing on the far end of the hall way. You can wake up to the church bells! The third bedroom has a twin trundle bed with another twin underneath. It has its own 1/2 bath with a toilet and sink. There is also a double futon in the large living area.
PLEASE NOTE: There is an 8 person maximum for this property, check the dates for added fees per person.

                      The Hacienda is in one of the best locations in Taos: only 4

                      blocks from the plaza, walk to the best of almost everything ~ galleries, shops, restaurants, bars and clubs, ski area shuttles, local bus line, grocery store, ski rentals,

                      post office. And yet its on a dead end street and relatively quiet for being right in town! The best of everything!!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1986

                      Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                      My husband and I have lived in the Taos area for over 35 years. We love the location in town on the dead end street that is relatively quiet and close to town so we can enjoy walking everywhere.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The best feature of the large home is the room to spread out. With 3 separate wings of the house you have all the privacy you could want with even a large family or group of 7 to 8. There are 3 private patios (a.k.a. 'portals) with swings to enjoy the gardens with your morning coffee, or evening cocktails.It is also wonderful to be so close to town that you can easily walk or ride your bikes to galleries, museums, bookstores, shopping and many fine restaurants and clubs. There is even free music on the plaza by local bands with lots of local color, not to be missed on summer Thursday nights. Once you are enveloped by the thick adobe walls and cozy rooms you will find it hard to believe you are so close to town.
