Taos house description

This home is a fabulous vacation location. It is situated on 5 irrigated acres in the foothills above the village of Arroyo Seco. You can walk or ride bikes to the village along a creek on a tree lined road.
El Salto Road is the very best location to enjoy a Taos holiday. The creeks and irrigation keep the area green and lush. The five acre property surrounding the house has 1000 trees in Cottonwood, Willow, Austrian Pines, and Aspen. There is a small plum and apple orchard and a full garden on site for guests to pick vegetables. We are currently growing lettuce, spinach, tomato, radish, carrot, potato and basil..
The biking, both mountain and cycling, is world class literally right out the front door. Hiking trails are phenomenal, with access to Forest Service lands just minutes away. From Taos Ski Valley (15 minutes), there are countless trails and cooler temperatures as one gains altitude. The Ski Valley offers trail riding horse stables and chairlift rides.
Relax in an authentic adobe home after a day of skiing in winter or hiking anytime of year. Located just minutes from the village of Arroyo Seco and fifteen minutes from Taos Ski Valley, this comfortable, warm and inviting residence awaits you and your family. The home was built by Taos' most successful designer/builder/developer team for their own family and enjoyment. The architecture and furnishings might be described as French Country Northern New Mexico.
The walls are 18 inch thick adobe with viga and beam ceilings, flagstone floors covered with oriental rugs, and antique furniture throughout. The house feels good, warm, cozy, luxurious. The furnishings and finishes have been selected with great care and comfort in mind.
The kitchen features a stainless steel restaurant stove and oven, side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, compactor, and a full line of dishes and cooking utensils. There is a large central island for food preparation where the entire family can participate in making a meal.
The large master bedroom contains a queen bed and a couch that slides out to make two twin beds. The middle bedroom and the front bedroom both have queen beds and a twin bed in each.
There is also a convertible couch in the living room for two more twin beds.
There are two patios for use all year round.
All the linens and towels are provided for a large group. The owners have many years experience in providing a wonderful vacation experience for their guests.
