Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9-12)

Situated on two private acres among pinion, juniper, and Ponderosa pines in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range, this newly-built(2003), three bedroom plus house is a perfect spot to relax after a long day spent skiing or seeing the many sights of Taos.

This is a hand-crafted, custom-built, Non-Smoking home with Southwest touches such as coved plaster ceilings, log vigas, and the traditional Northern New Mexico-style pitched roof. The house’s many windows are oriented to frame the mountain views and embrace the New Mexico sun with a warm southern exposure that heats and brightens the house all winter. The large south-facing deck on the main level and the two private upper balconies can be enjoyed all year. A full-length covered porch on the north side stays cool through the summer months and provides plenty of room to stomp off snow in the winter.

The house is located north of the town of Taos (nine miles), off the road to the Taos Ski Valley (eight miles). The elevation is estimated to be 7900 feet - which means cool and refreshing nights even in the heat of the New Mexico summer.

Inside, there are three bedrooms: the master bedroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs. One upstairs room has a lovely view of the Taos Ski Valley mountain, and is furnished with a queen bed. The other bedroom has twin beds and an optional futon double mattress for additional guests. Both upstairs rooms have large private balconies with southern views of the Truchas mountain range. The entire first floor has vigas with coved ceilings, and French doors opening onto the large south deck. The master bathroom has a large tub with a picture window framing a view of pine trees. The living room has a large fireplace, for nights before the roaring fire. The living room also has a queen-size sofa bed for extra sleeping capacity. The attractive kitchen has a Jenn-Air range and granite tile countertops, and is fully-equipped for most cooking needs.

There is an outdoor Jacuzzi tub for skiers to soak away the effects of a long day on the slopes. Taos Ski Valley is near our house, and Angel Fire is a short drive in the other direction. In winter, snow often blankets our property and there is a sledding slope for kids near the driveway. In summer, you are encouraged to bring your mountain bikes to explore the trails reached directly from our house.

NOTE: Our house is reached by a 1.9 mile county-maintained dirt road (Gallina Canyon Road). Depending on the time of year, a four-wheel drive vehicle may be recommended due to snow conditions.

Exceptional property.

  • 5 of 5

The house is large, spacious, well-equipped, and has extraordinary views. It is beautifully maintained and very child-friendly (ping-pong, foosball, darts, big basement). Bedrooms are large and all have wonderful views. Kitchen is large, airy, easy to use. There's a brand-new railing on the porch, which is great for looking out at the mountains and enjoying a late-afternoon drink. South part of property is open and perfect for kids (parents can watch from porch.) Quiet, private, and easy access to good coffee shops/restaurants in nearby Arroyo Seco.

Room enough for all!

  • 4 of 5

Our family loved this house! There was room for our 2 sons, their wives and 7 grandchildren! The kids enjoyed the hot tub, the game room and the hikes outdoors-collecting rocks, pine cones, etc. The kitchen allowed us to cook our favorite meals with room for several cooks at once. We played, ate and saw the scenery in and around Taos for a week!

Spacious, clean with lots of amenities

  • 4 of 5

The property worked very well for 4 adults and 3 children. We had everything we needed for meals and enjoyed the hot tub. We were able to drive up the road a ways and hike; although you really need a 4-wheel. The kids enjoyed the room with 4 bunkbeds! The back deck is very spacious for eating or lounging, but one concern was the back deck railing slats were loose or missing in several places; we had to really watch the kids. This really should be properly repaired.

Owner's Response: Thanks Susie, for your input -- you are absolutely correct -- the south deck railings need repair. Fortunately, we have been working on the problem this spring and new railings were delivered this week and are being installed at this moment. The new railings were delayed and had to be fabricated due to the extreme fire danger which has severely limited forest access and therefore the availability of latillas and vigas. However, the new railings have an advantage: the tops can now serve as a surface to place a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine, beer, coke or juice. I'll post a picture as it gets completed.
