Property description

Perfect downtown location. Explore the fascinating area, art galleries and classes, museums, historic pueblo, relax in the bars & restaurants in the evenings. We're an easy 10 minute walk to the town centre and Plaza. A short 30-minute drive to Taos Ski Valley and hiking trails.
This is a quiet and serene adobe home set in a favourite small Taos community with beautiful gardens. If you're looking for a calm and welcoming place to relax and recuperate, this is it.
The decor is a meld of contemporary New Mexican and Morrocan, with soothing colours and interesting features throughout. The smooth plaster faux painted walls and large vigas (exposed wood beams in the ceiling) and aspen-white washed wood floors throughout are complemented by rustic furniture, antiques, cowhide rugs, ceiling fans, original artwork, and many other 'Taosy' touches that welcome you. The large living and dining room has a wood-burning custom kiva fireplace - creating a cosy and romantic feel for your evenings at home. Also in the living room there is a 48' Flat screen TV (Direct TV satellite), DVD player with extensive library of DVDs, large couch and love seat (seats 5), charming wicker glass-top table and 4 arm chairs with cushions for dining, playing games, or additional seating. Starter firewood and a few logs to get you going are in a tub on the front balcony located through the french doors in the living room. The front balcony is a private walled deck with a patio table and swivel rocking chairs where you can enjoy a drink beneath the giant cottonwood trees, while watching the local birds swoop around the koi pond.
The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed and a full bathroom featuring custom tile and plumbing features and a jacuzzi tub - just turn on the music and relax! There is a small deck off the master bedroom and a large walk-in closet. The second bedroom has two twin beds - and morning sunshine. It has its own door into the second full bathroom with custom tile and plumbing features and an enclosed shower unit. This bathroom is also accessible from the hallway.
In the kitchen you will find custom Mexican tile countertops and stainless dishwasher, oven & gas range, and side-by-side refrigerator/freezer with ice maker. The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking your own meals if you don't feel like strolling into town to eat. As well as pots, pans, baking dishes, and coffee maker & presses, there's a rice cooker, a slow cooker/crockpot, and a microwave oven.
The lovely landscaped grounds are reminiscent of an English garden, and are shared by all the units - a perfect place to read a book or enjoy a glass of wine (or maybe both!) Designated parking for 1 vehicle is right outside the unit, and there's plenty of additional guest parking. Wi-fi internet access (password provided on check-in) is provided by a neighbouring unit, and can also be accessed for a little way outdoors.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We live in Oklahoma, and discovered Taos many years ago. This is our perfect 'pied-a-terre' when we visit - which we do regularly. We're seasoned travellers and know what it takes to make you feel at home in our home!

Why Taos:
Taos is a magical place, it has a very special energy all of its own, which we feel every time we come. There is so much to do here, and the people are welcoming and friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love that the condo is such an easy walk to town - especially after enjoying a meal at one of the wonderful local restaurants. An added bonus for us and our guests: The lovely El Monte Sagrada spa and resort is just around the corner, offering spa treatments, a welcoming bar, and top class restaurant - all reasonably priced!
