                                  This house is conveniently located and close to everything in Taos


                                  Manager info

                                  Year Purchased: 1994

                                  About: My name is David Bebout. I moved to Taos fifteen years ago. It has always been my dream to someday live in the southwest. I researched for years the architecture of many properties in Santa fe and the Taos area.I finally found what I was seeking; a unique,large house built by one of the finest builders with a view that I never would have imagined. Taos especially appealed to me because of it's vast history,architecture, art and museums and become acquainted with its tri-cultured community, . I am an avid participant with the Taos archeological society where we organize over night and day trips to historical sites.After many years of research, i have acquired a broad knowledge of the southwest. I could not be a happier man, sipping my coffee on my porch watching the majestic sunrise.

                                  Why Taos:
                                  When I first bought my property, fifteen years ago, my children were still living with me. Now they are off to college,so therefore, I have two extra bedrooms for family and friends to visit. When my children were still living at home, I wanted to transform my large 'work shop' into a wonderful house for any friends that would like to visit us. I spent a lot of time researching the finest of materials into a large guest house, approximately 700 sq. feet. I have many hobbies, but the art of restoration is on the top of my list.It took a lot of time to achieve what I had envisioned. With determination, and attention to every detail my guest house was completed. One feels like it is a home away from home rather the close quarters of a vacation rental. The main room has a gas fire place with plenty of windows and patio to enjoy the view. The guest house is several hundred feet away from the main house, so that you have complete privacy. It is among the finest of vacation rentals at a very reasonable price. You can call or e-mail us for further details Sincerely, David and Saskia

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
