4 miles from historic art meca village of Taos. 8 miles from UNESCO HIstoric site: Taos Pueblo--1,000 years old. 3 cultures create a unique blend of Anglo, HIspanic and Indian history and art. 15 miles from Taos Ski Valley with winter and summer cultural events. One mile from pristine golf course, one mile walk to the gorge of the Rio Grande River. White water rafting is nearby and fly fishing is excellent at several nearby rivers. Abundant art shows, live music and theatre. Setting is quiet magnificent beauty.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am retired from the Executive Senior Service in the Federal Government in D.C. I have visited Taos for 20 years and chose a home with the advantages of glorious views, quiet surroundings and access to great music, art, and cultural events. Most of my career has been as a University administrator and faculty member. My interests are music (playing the cello), golf, art, yoga, community service, working out at the spa, live music and cultural connections. I am active and continually learning new things in this Land of Enchantment.

Why the Owner Chose Ranchos de Taos, NM, USA:
I own 1 1/2 acres on the high mesa southwest of Taos. On my road is the Taos Golf Course, the University of New Mexico Taos campus and the Taos National Guard Armory--so it is well maintained. Since I am 1 mile from the edge of the Gorge of the Rio Grande hiking is wonderful and the sunsets and sunrises are spectacular. The casita is quite private and comfortable--it was well designed to take advantage of the views. I have a hot tub which renters can access. Nights are always cool mountain air.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The property is quiet and surrounded by sweeping mountain views---yet close enough to easily drive in to town for wonderful restaurants, great live music and any number of cultural festivals and celebrations. Archeological digs and ancient rock formations speak of the age of the land--and the history of all 3 cultures blend in a rich reality of our current world.
