Town - Private setting just 3 blocks walk to Taos plaza, 18 miles to Taos Ski Valley
Adobe Arboleda - "House of the Grove" so named because of the lush ambiance of tall shade trees surrounding this magnificent home in the heart of town. Years ago, shortly after taking possession, former owners learned that an enormous 150 year-old willow in the back yard was dying. They stopped at no length or expense to save the precious tree and it stands today to thrill all who visit this oasis. To commemorate the significance, the owners commissioned a graceful image of "Safe Willow" to be carved on the door of the wine glass cabinet in the great room. The cabinet remains for guests enjoy.
Offering a lush private setting, expansive tree-shaded yard / lawn and in the heart of town off historical Kit Carson Road. As an added bonus the completely enclosed yard is surrounded with Aspen latilla fencing and gate. Such enclosing, so popular in Santa Fe and Taos, is fondly called "Coyote fence". Spring, summer and autumn are special months for enjoying the upscale patio with giant "portale" (Spanish for "covered patio and/or walkway) for extended outdoor living. Furnished with large upgraded stainless gas grill, large patio table and Hot tub, guests have all the makings for 8 months of outdoor dining and entertainment and 12 months of relaxing and soaking in the hot tub.
The century old completely renovated adobe has a wood burning Kiva fireplace, hand-hewn vigas, and radiant-heated floors. The hand-trowelled plaster nichos and alcove ceilings enhance the entire home.
Included in the great room is the custom designed gourmet kitchen boasting pull out drawers that house stainless cook ware and appliances. Granite counters, hand crafted cabinets and well stocked condiments will delight foodies.
Two well separated master suites (with private entrances), afford total privacy - one up and one down - no shared walls, ceilings or floors. Both suites offer upscale luxury bathrooms. The second floor master suite offers a commanding view of Taos Pueblo Peak. It includes a luxurious soaking tub for two, comfortably sloped at either end. The first floor master, with sliding glass door, opens out to the inviting yard and patio and is completely sound proofed from the rest of the house. (The powder room at the entry hall allows living-room sleepers their own privacy too!)
