Owner info

Year Purchased: 1945

About the owner: The hacienda has been in our family since it was built in 1945 by our grandparents, Charles and Ruth Reynolds. He was a painter who was drawn to Taos, like many others, because of it's amazing natural beauty, as well as it's unique cultural aspects. The Reynold's also had an art gallery on Kit Carson Road, and his work is still shown in galleries in Taos and Santa Fe. People often comment on the 'old world' charm that the house embodies. It has a comfortable elegance, with the modern amenities included.

Why the Owner Chose Taos, NM, USA:
This is our family home, built before we were born. We feel exceptionally grateful to have inherited it from our grandparents.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
As the sun sets on a summer evening, you can hear the Taos Pueblo people singing and drumming from near-by. Their dances and festivals, in each season, are practically at your front door. Visitors are more that welcome to come and see the Deer dances in winter, San Geronimo day in the fall, and to experience Taos from an historical perspective. Sitting in front of a roaring pinion fire in winter, surrounded by original Taos art and furniture, is truly and enchanting experience.
