About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our adobe style Taos home is a second home available year round. We fell in love with it over twenty-seven years ago and have lovingly furnished it for family enjoyment with excellent furniture, a well-equipped kitchen, huge patio with Weber grill and kiva fireplace with bancos for outdoor dining and entertaining in season. We moved our fiction library and Chickering spinet piano down to Taos, along with a lot of very good furniture. Our extended family has loved skiing, rafting, gallery visits, fine dining and the unique charm and history of Taos over the years. We believe our guests will love it as well. It is located on a quiet circle within easy walking distance of the Plaza, museums, galleries and fine dining. Our neighbors are friendly and the neighborhood is child and dog friendly.

Our sister's second home is next door, so larger family groups can combine the two homes with proper advance arrangements. They have a hot tub. The mountain and meadow views from our patio are spectacular and our home is well-situated for all the outdoor adventures Taos has to offer.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1987

About: We are a senior professional couple who love to travel the world and enjoy the outdoors. We fell in love with Taos' unique charm and history over thirty years ago and our extended family has greatly enjoyed the skiing, rafting, hiking, Pueblo, day trips and many other activities over the years. So has our ladylike Labrador, Miss Jackie! We want our guests to discover the magic of Taos and enjoy it as much as we have over the years! Pat and Jerry Rice

Why Taos, NM, USA:
We were already fascinated by Taos. After we found our home and met our great neighbors, we were sold!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is only a ten minute stroll to the plaza and is an easy focal point to set out and enjoy all the marvelous things the Taos area has to offer. We really enjoy the mountain view from our peaceful patio, as well as a good steam bath at the end of a hike or skiing. Two of our three bedrooms have king size beds;the third has twin beds. Dogs love our neighborhood.We recently installed a very large "smart" tv in the living room. There are good tvs in the master bedroom and twin bedroom as well.
