Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: 29 year Taos resident

Why the Owner Chose Taos, NM, USA:
Convenient location with a wonderful feeling of being home. My house belong to the Merrill's who were artists, gallery owners and school teachers in Taos in the 40's. I love there story!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I totally renovated my house and in doing so put in a courtyard that not many houses feature. I kept the original wood floors and incorporated some of the pieces that the original owners used. It also has such privacy with the walled front yard and coyote fencing. I love my neighborhood.
