Taos house description

Beautiful Adobe home, located on a hillside overlooking the town of Taos. Large open concept home, perfect for dinners. Large wrap around portal (porch) with several outdoor areas for relaxing. Relax and enjoy the sunset from the Portal, the outdoor fireplace area, or from the hot tub on the Ramada, which is accessible by a small bridge that spans the Arroyo.

The views stretch from the Divisidero in the Carson National Forest, to the Taos Pueblo Mountains, to Colorado, to San Antonio Mountain and all the way south to the Pedernal. At night, enjoy the views of the stars and the town as it lights up below you. The house is located in a Pinon forest on a private road, and is less than 5 minutes from Taos Plaza.

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: We are Todd and Denise and came to Taos 6 years ago. We decided to spend our Winters here. We are active in the outdoors and love that there is always something going on in town.

                      Why the Owner Chose Taos:
                      The house sits in a private neighborhood on a hillside and overlooks the town of Taos. It is 2 miles from the Taos Plaza. The area offers many activities: . Hiking - Many hiking trails are within a mile of the house. The neighborhood borders Carson National Forest and there are there is even more on the way up to the Taos Ski Valley or on the way to Angel Fire. . Mountain Biking - The South Boundary Trail ends a little over a mile away. Central access to hit the Downhill trails at Angel Fire, the easier Riff Valley trail area south of town, the West Rim and Horsethief up north and many others. . Swimming - the Taos pool is minutes away and great for lap and open swimming . Fishing - World class fly fishing, with several shops with guide service in town. . Skiing and Boarding - Taos Ski Valley is 20 miles away offering world class skiing at a great value. Ranked in the top 20 of US Resorts by Ski Magazine and 4th for Advanced Skiing. Plenty of Novice and Intermediate runs, and we've allowed snowboarders for the past 5 years. . Galleries and Museums - A wide variety of galleries and artisans in town. The Harwood and Millicent Rogers museums have excellent collections of New Mexican art and shows throughout the year. The Taos Center for the Arts (TCA) has live performances, simulcasts, movies and art showings. . Live Music - 5+ live venues every night. The Adobe Bar has free shows that start early, and the Cantena, KTAO, and Taos Mesa Brewery all have entertainment nightly. . Restaurants - A great assortment of Southwest cuisine, running from green chili cheeseburgers to high end restaurants. . Breweries - We boast 3 local breweries and all are very different. Eskes and the Ale House in town, and the Taos Mesa Brewery is worth the 7 mile drive. Our central location provides easy access to the many activities that Taos has to offer.
