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.
