Property description

Built in 2009, this home is located just 5 minutes north of Taos Plaza and 20 minutes to Taos Ski Valley. Visitors have the best of both worlds. On a private road with a pond, incredible views of the mountains and fields surround this peaceful oasis.

Sit on the back patio and enjoy your morning coffee, while Taos and Pueblo Mountain provide the backdrop. When you want a change of view, go to the front porch and watch the horses playing in the field across the road.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: The owners, Michael and Jodi, have been coming to Taos for over 15 years. Michael grew up in Europe and Jodi on the East Coast. They finally realized their dream of owning a home in Taos a few years ago.

Why the Owner Chose El Prado, NM, USA:
After searching for a home in Taos for 3 years, Michael and Jodi came upon the perfect land to purchase: unique views, lush meadows and private. It's close to town for activities, but also just a few minutes from outdoor activities.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is not merely a vacation rental, but a home. Comfortable and casual, you can relax and enjoy the unique offerings of Northern New Mexico.
