Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Kate Culligan and Josh Comfort have lived in Denver for over 30 years owning and managing rental properties as a side- line to their professional lives. They have a Brady Bunch of kids-with Josh’s four kids and Kate’s two. She is a former Marketing and Promotions executive with Clear Channel Radio and has recently started a consulting practice specializing in career development. Josh is an Architect with extensive historic renovation experience, and has been a prime mover in the revitalization of Lower Downtown Denver, which is now filled with lofts and restaurants, many designed by Josh. A short 4-1/2 hour drive away, Taos offered a dramatically contrasting experience – inner city life in a burgeoning metropolitan area versus an ambling pace in a culturally complex small town.
Their Taos adventure began six years ago during a weekend getaway taken to replenish themselves during a particularly challenging period of their lives. Little did they know that a Sunday stroll down Morada Lane would result in a signed contract to purchase their first “unloved” but charming historic property, Casa Manana. The property had been empty for over a year and lacked adequate plumbing and electrical. But Kate and Josh saw through the overgrown courtyard and fuchsia pink walls to see the great “bones” of the property. After an extensive year- long renovation, they were hooked! Five years later they discovered La Loma plaza with its beautiful location on a hill overlooking the town. The private chapel and charming 200- year old homes were enticing and Casa Loma Chica was born.
Why the Owner Chose Taos: We were visiting Taos for five years before we even discovered LaLoma Plaza. It is a hidden gem-one of the original neighborhoods, quiet and yet close it. The private chapel and beautiful casitas that surround the original plaza are magical.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The casita has a gated front and back courtyard perfect for outdoor dining. Many of the art pieces in the casita are offered for sale.
