Manager info

Year Purchased: 1965

About: Built in 1965 by renowned architect Bill Mingenbach this house has been in our family ever since. The unique design includes sliding glass doors in every room allowing for natural light to enter the house from all directions. Our family loves to hike, ski and just relax. We love being able to walk to our favorite restaurant Lamberts of Taos.

Why Taos, NM, USA:
Taos has a unique and rich cultural environment. The stunning natural light and mystical landscape was a perfect place for a rambunctious and creative person to grow up. Taos gave me the tools I needed to become a successful fine art photographer. Each and every time I return to my childhood home (Casita Maria) I am reminded of the amazing natural light that keeps my creative juices flowing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
With a beautiful view of Taos Mountain the house sits on an acre of land and is just a five minute walk to all the best restaurants and shopping in Taos. The house has been completely remodeled and now includes a beautiful hot tub and deck.
