About the Property
Mountain views 2 bedrooms, 1 sleeping loft, 2 1/2 bath
'Unique' inadequately describes this incredible house. Who expects a curvy wall down a window-lined hall? The master bedroom has its own bathroom, stove and tree! What could be more fun? The ceiling soars to windows that let in the morning light and provide solar heat throughout the day. The second bedroom also has a comfortable queen bed. Upstairs, the loft has a single over full bunk bed and 2 twin beds. The kitchen is fully equipped and the dining table seats 6. A beautiful kiva highlights the living room and you'll enjoy sitting watching either the fire inside or the mountains and the birds outside. Reading is a pleasure in the round room off the main living area. The house has high speed wireless internet. Propane stoves, electric heaters and a wood-burning kiva fireplace keep you toasty. A large wall provides outdoor privacy as you eat meals, doze, read, relax or use the fire pit on the patio. Walk down the bank to the bridge over the river and watch the water flow. Stargazing is unbelievable in the clear mountain air. You'll be stunned by the abundance and clarity of the stars. This home is perfectly located for day trips to Santa Fe, Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch, Ojo Caliente (hot springs--wonderful!) Taos Pueblo, and innumerable hiking trails.

This unique home is perfectly located for mountain activities. Forest roads give easy access to hiking and biking trails in the summer. In the winter, you can enjoy cross country skiing, sledding and snowshoeing or ski at Sipapu (20 min drive), Taos Ski Valley(45 min drive) or Angel Fire(45 min drive). The house is 10 minutes from the intersection of HWY 518 and HWY 68 so it is an easy drive into either Taos or Ranchos de Taos for shopping and sightseeing. You'll enjoy exploring art galleries, shops, museums and restaurants. The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge offers a bird's eye view of the river far below--but hold the railing if you are afraid of heights! Local companies offer hot air balloon rides and rafting trips along the Rio Grande. Plan on visiting the Taos Pueblo, a World Heritage Site. Santos house is located on the scenic high road between Santa Fe and Taos. You will be thrilled by the magnificent vistas unfolding before you as you take this drive. You'll want to stop at the historic adobe churches along the way and you must stop to visit the Sanctuario de Chimayo in Chimayo. Chimayo is also a perfect stop for lunch at the Ranchos de Chimayo Restaurante. When you return to the house after a day full of fun, you can relax on the patio with your favorite beverage and take in the beautiful scenery and fresh air. The little river running behind the house gives you the opportunity to fish or simply sit on the bridge and watch the water flow. Relaxation and peace may be the most wonderful opportunities this home offers.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Native Oklahomans, we live and work in Tulsa. We manage real estate and provide legal services to the oil and gas industry. We reared 5 children, 2 of whom still live in Oklahoma.
Why the Owner Chose Ranchos de Taos, NM, USA:
As kids going on vacations with our families, we each fell in love with New Mexico. We even spent our honeymoon in Santa Fe. 5 kids and 29 years later we spent 2 weeks (alone!) exploring the Taos area. In the most brilliant idea we've ever had, we decided to look for a second home here. We were sold on this property before we even stepped inside! The location is beautiful with mountains close and our very own river running past. The air smells wonderful! We absolutely love this house. It is more fun than any house we've ever been in. It is more relaxing and peaceful than any place we've ever been.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location. You are close to Taos, yet you feel like you are off in the mountains alone.
