Property description

Built in 2009, this home is located just 5 minutes north of Taos Plaza and 20 minutes to Taos Ski Valley. Visitors have the best of both worlds. On a private road with a pond, incredible views of the mountains and fields surround this peaceful oasis.

Sit on the back patio and enjoy your morning coffee, while Taos and Pueblo Mountain provide the backdrop. When you want a change of view, go to the front porch and watch the horses playing in the field across the road.
