          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1997

          About the owner: 29 year Taos resident

          Why the Owner Chose Taos:
          Convenient location with a wonderful feeling of being home. My house belong to the Merrill's who were artists, gallery owners and school teachers in Taos in the 40's. I love there story!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          I totally renovated my house and in doing so put in a courtyard that not many houses feature. I kept the original wood floors and incorporated some of the pieces that the original owners used. It also has such privacy with the walled front yard and coyote fencing. I love my neighborhood.
