Car: Recommended

Taos is a unique spot. The Taos Pueblo is the oldest continually inhabited Pueblo in North America. The history and art of Taos is spectacular. Our music, dance, film, art, history and outdoor beauty surround you and provide options for any vacation you seek. Relax, visit the museums, shop or just sit lakeside and read.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We bought our property in 2004. Over the past ten years, we have reestablished the natural wetlands. We completed construction on our 'green' home in July of 2014. We plan to retire to Taos someday. Meanwhile, Dieter, a Master Chef, and Lynne, a Psychologist working with seniors, are in the San Francisco Bay area.

Why the Owner Chose Ranchos de Taos, NM, USA:
Taos is magical and unique. There is everything and nothing to do there. You can while away your days watching the sky and clouds. Or there is shopping, excellent food, world class art, music, theater...and then there is the outdoors. The history of Taos is like nowhere else in the U.S. The backdrop Taos Mt and the Pueblo enhances the mystique and power of this beautiful place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is secluded and private, surrounded by pastures on all sides while only ten minutes to Taos downtown plaza. Our home was built with the love of natural local artisans and craftsmenship. It has been furnished to create a warm, relaxing family vacation home. Our stunning location and natural wetlands attract birds and animals - being in the valley and green while part of the desert surroundings is ideal.
