Taos house description

The longtime home of the late Taos icon 'Alfred Hobbs'.

Alfred's house in Canon boasts a rich and dynamic history dating from the 1700's as the millsite and miller's house on the Rio Fernando de Taos. Alfred Hobb's life is the subject of the documentary film 'Driven' and his days as an archeologist and member of a Taos hippie commune have been chronicled. Alfred's unique woodwork is exhibited thoughout the house and casita.

The original adobe has evolved organically through several distinct eras. Both house and casita have recently been remodeled and are known as 'The Compound' which can be rented separately or together.

Four gas burning Kivas designed and built by Taos Pueblo War Chief Benito Sandoval warm the living room and bedrooms with romantic ambiance without the chore of building a fire. The casita's traditional historic kiva fireplace, now allowing candles only, still delights residents with glowing warmth and romantic ambiance.

The radiant floor heating is appreciated by guests, often commenting on the 'toasty quiet warmth'. The modern country kitchen features upgrade stainless appliances and original artwork by family artists Bill, Mary and Rachel from the California art world.

An authentic blend of tradition and comfort inside traditional Santa Fe/Taos coyote fencing (offering lots of privacy) is conveniently located a mile and a half (25 minute walk) from the Taos Plaza and is one block off Kit Carson Road .

The detached two car garage includes storage for activity gear: skiis, bikes, kayaks, etc.
