This 2400 Sq. Ft. adobe home has three bedrooms, each separate from the others for the privacy adults prefer. Our priorities when furnishing our home were good mattresses, soft sheets and good reading lights. Our guests sleep 'like babies' here and we have several cozy reading places.
We added a 450 Sq. Ft. Dining Room and sitting area with a gas fireplace. This year we added the color coat and it looks beautiful!
We like to cook so we equipped the kitchen for a wide range of cooking and baking supplies. The cabinets are hand crafted and the new stone counter tops are a beautiful green slate with spectacular gray and white grain.
The teak dining table easily seats eight. The kitchen and dining area receive lovely morning light through a skylight and a French door to a stone patio.
Our home is fenced in with off street parking as well as a gated parking area and a small, fenced in back yard.
New Addition: We added a large room to the front of our house, to provide a dining area and a sitting area with a gas fireplace. We chose adobe construction, though it is costly, to preserve the comfortable feel of the house. We are very pleased with the work, done to a high standard, and the house continues to be very warm in winter and cool in summer.
Additionally, we added a large amount of counter space to the kitchen and it is a wonderful environment for cooking.

Taos, New Mexico, USA
We are located a few minutes walk from the town plaza, home to live music in the summer and art/jewel/souvenir shopping all year round. A few minutes walk to the north takes you to Kit Carson Park and the Taos Community Center (check out their events page: http://tcataos.org/). Many restaurants are within walking distance, as well as Smith's, a full service grocery store. In spite of our central location, you will find Bear House very quiet and with almost a rural feel in our quiet neighborhood, with a fenced yard and a park that bounds our property at the rear.
Other Activities: Taos Ski Valley is known around the world for fantastic skiing and comfortable facilities. In the summer, one can ride the lift for incredibly beautiful hiking or enjoy various musical performances. TSV, one of the last resorts to reserve lifts for skiers only, three years ago began welcoming snowboarders. Contrary to old-timers' fears, snowboarders have easily integrated into the experience. In fact, they bring a youthful liveliness that has been very welcome. Whether you are planning to relax in our comfortable adobe and catch up on your reading or want outdoor adventure,
Bear House will give you a comfortable base. We love to cook so our kitchen is fully equipped with good pans and tools, and a very user friendly layout for one to many cooks. However, a meal at Graham's, Lambert's and Antonio's are musts for our trips here. Very different and very high quality dining.
Ski: While many find Taos Ski Valley to provide ample variety, some like to visit different areas and near Taos are Red River, Angel Fire and the Santa Fe Ski Resort. On a powder day, though, I always recommend TSV. They plow and sand their roads early and often and have many places for intermediate and advanced skiers to enjoy fresh powder.
Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: We have loved Taos and the Taos Ski Valley since our first trip here in 1983. We began looking around for some land to build on and were on our way to make an offer when we saw a photo of this house listed. We changed our plans, our agent arranged a visit and we bought the house! We have made many improvements, including a skylight in the kitchen, a second bathroom, a heating system and a gas fireplace in the kiva in the master bedroom. Most recently, we added several hundred square feet in adobe to give us a dining room and a sitting room, also equipped with a gas fireplace. We find it so comfortable that it is hard to go home to California, as we must do tomorrow.
Why the Owner Chose Taos, NM, USA:
There is something about adobe building that is soothing to the soul! Warm in the winter, cool in the summer and simply relaxing to be in.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have heard from past guests that the photos don't do justice to the place. Just know that I have made it as beautiful and comfortable as I can. So, great mattresses, good reading lights, different areas to hang out in, bedrooms in separate areas of the house for privacy.
