This 2800-square-foot, 2 story, 3 bedroom, 3 bath home was completely remodeled in 2013 and recently fully operational windows were installed which enhances the entire south side of the home, allowing that cool Taos breeze to flow right on through!! You will find Casa Contenta located on the highest bluff in an area just 3/10 of a mile north of the old blinking light (junction of Hwys 522 & 150, which is the road to the Taos Ski Valley.)
The home’s layout offers a spacious interior while providing unique separation for two couples/families. All bedrooms are located on the ground floor but the two main bedrooms are located on the opposite ends. The remaining ground floor consists of yet another bedroom offering three twin beds and a window banquette. Yet, this floor offers even more. Designed solely for kids or the young at heart, the map area displays old antique maps, children’s puzzles and games, along with an array of video games, all complemented by one very large banquette that can easily accommodate seating for the entire family or sleep comfortably two kids.
The upstairs has a panoramic view through numerous windows and a spacious deck for the morning coffee or evening cocktails, designed openly from the kitchen which allows the dining & living rooms to flow evenly to nurture the truly amazing views of the mountains and valley sunrises and sunsets. Recently, we added a swamp cooler with a thermostat to control the temperature that will help keep our guests cool in even the warmest days.
The kitchen has been upgraded, too, with brand new appliances and is equipped to accommodate an extravagant dining experience or a simple cup of “joe”. The dining table seats comfortably six, while the living room coffee table may accommodate three others who desire to be inspired by a little DishTV while dining.
The home is very unique and is decorated in the true Taos tradition, from vigas accenting each ceiling, complemented by ceiling fans in the main bedrooms, to the saltillo tile and wood floors adorned by antique and Persian hand-made rugs, with distinctive antiques, as well as original and hand-made art that has been collected over the years and placed tastefully throughout the house. Along with old adobe straw stucco, there are also vibrantly painted walls which allow those who may not be so inspired at home to experience Taos’s true legacy of passionate colors in an everyday setting.
This home has a wonderful, serene setting and yet is only a few minutes from all Taos has to offer...great restaurants, shops and many world class outdoor winter and summer activities.
Casa Contenta welcomes you to explore the Taos experience. We’re encouraged that once you're here, you won't want to leave.
We only use plant-based, non-scented cleaning products throughout the home.
Although this area is extremely quiet and peaceful, for those desiring a further sense of security, the home is equipped with extensive outdoor lighting, along with monitored ADT security services for your safety day and night.
