About the Property
Mystic Oasis, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
The house was built by artist, sculptor, architect, landscape artist, philosopher, gardener, dietitian, cook, poet and steward..... Malcolm Brown (1925-2003). He described life at SpringWild as an experiment in transition to a world of peace, happiness and fulfillment for all.
The unique structure of the Main House is brimming with detailed woodwork of a craftsman. This is not your ordinary house, the longer you're here the more you see. The whole south/east side of the house is windows. When the sun rises over the Canyon Saddle it brings the morning suns warm rays into the kitchen... a great morning spot.
The second level of the house holds two beautiful built-in king size beds lined by windows overlooking the property. To get to this level you climb up a ladder type stairway with railings. You may sit on the veranda outside of this room to relax and enjoy the mountain view.
Up another ladder on the third level is a cozy queen-sized sleeping area surrounded by windows, perfect for star gazing. The kids love this room. From here a stairway leads up to a warm, single person meditation room.
Just a few steps outside the main house is the 'Bath House'. This is a full bathroom, heated and carpeted with a beautiful mosaic shower/tub, toilet, sink and a large dressing area. The Bath House is shared with other people living on the property.
There is a large area right outside the kitchen with a big table, umbrella, BBQ, bar area, croquet pitch and sunset Taos Mountain views. During the summer enjoy eggs from our chickens and fresh vegetables from our organic garden. You will love this enchanted place.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I worked at a Sacred Heart school in California for 23 years. During that time I chaperoned a group of high school students on a trip to Taos. I fell in love with the beauty of the land and the pace of life here. When I found this property I knew it was a special place and had to be shared with others.
Why the Owner Chose Taos, NM, USA:
We love this property because we are surrounded by nature and open fields with a view of the mountains. We are also only five minutes from town.
