About the owner: We bought this wonderful house after seeing it once. Nothing compared. The views of the mountains and the Ranchitos Valley pastures were compelling, like the cover of a Louis L'Amour novel. There are very few houses like this one in Taos, perched on the mesa's edge. In 2003 we built a second living/studio room with huge window views, and an adjoining office space. It is an easy drive to the Ski Valley and to Taos Plaza (12 minutes) and to wonderful hiking trails. Our favorite is the Santa Barbara trail about 45 minutes south. The drive to Santa Fe is less than 90 minutes from the house to the Plaza.
