About Anna Shelton
I have been visiting the Taos area since the early '70's. My daughter owns Casita des Montes, #279174, right next door, so I visit often with her and my 3 grandsons. I am a retired Clinical Social Worker and enjoy reading, knitting and cooking up something new for family and friends.
Anna Shelton purchased this house in 2004
Why Anna Shelton chose Arroyo Seco
Building an energy efficient and 'green' house on my daughter's property was a wonderful addition to the two other homes here. It was important to me that the home take little natural resources from an area that has challenges to it's water supply and that has abundant sunshine. The home's heat in the winter comes mainly from the sun, and it stays cool in summer due to the thickness of the straw bale walls.
What makes this house unique
I visit my home at Apple Hill Farm several times a year. The sunsets here are amazing and I never tire of anticipating each one. I have several close friends in the area and enjoy having them share dinners with me at the straw house. My favorite shops are Wabi Sabi, Common Thread, Twirl Toy Store and Southwest Weaving. Dinner out at Orlando's is always a treat.
