About the Property

Lovely two bedroom apartment in the heart of Taos

Enter this historic property through an arched gate and a lovely landscaped courtyard with flowering plants, shade trees and a bubbling fountain. Your apartment is at the end of the pathway under the covered portal/porch.

This delightful two bedroom apartment is located in an historic old Mill House one short block from Taos Plaza. It is one of four beautifully and tastefully restored apartments in a building that was built in the 1880's as a grain mill. It is listed on the Taos Historic Register.

The spacious interior of this two bedroom apartment is a wonderful combination of the quality of the renovations to this historic compound as well as the style of the eclectic furnishings, decor and sense of whimsy seen throughout. Great attention to detail is apparent everywhere you look.

The large living/dining area is intimate and welcoming. The L shaped couch faces a 47' flat screen TV for any viewing pleasure. There is also a corner gas log kiva fireplace and seating area for evening gatherings The main heat source for the apartment is a forced air heating system. Ceiling fans provide cool summer air.

The dining room table which comfortably seats six was hand made by a well known local artisan Greg Flores and has a true understated Taos flair.

The master bedroom offers a king sized sleigh bed with quality linens. There is a large armoire/trastero as well as a dresser for your travel convenience

The private second bedroom has a Queen bed with a red willow headboard. Good reading lights in both bedrooms are a must. You will enjoy the over sized sheepskin rug at the foot of the bed.

The well equipped kitchen is ready for any cooking at home you may want to do while in Taos and is well supplied with all of your basic culinary needs. Top of the line appliances include a gas range, refrigerator with ice maker and large microwave.

The full bath has a tub/shower combination, custom vanity with a soapstone counter top and lots of over sized bath towels. Leave your bathrobes and hair dryer at home. Both are provided for our guests.
A special feature in this bathroom is the 'Truth Wall' A framed section of an old wall showing the construction of the original Mill. Amazing that our adobe homes in New Mexico are constructed from mud bricks mixed with straw!

This apartment offers private off street parking for guests. There are also two gas BBQ grills available for guests. The owner has even thoughtfully provided a number of bicycles for the use of guests.

This is simply a perfect space for two to four guests in downtown Taos. You will be amazed and delighted I promise!
