About Lynne Greene

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.

Lynne Greene purchased this house in 2004

Why Lynne Greene chose New Mexico

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Met all expectations

  • 5 of 5

I could not have been more happy with this place. The views are incredible. There is a really nice open design of the house that is great for larger groups of people and shared meals. Classy interior design. Was incredibly clean. Loved the high ceilings. Felt very taken care of :)

Absolutely gorgeous home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had such a wonderful time. The house was just so perfect and in such a wonderful, peaceful area. If you are going to Taos, this is the home you want to stay in. We will be back next year for sure!

A lovely property.

  • 5 of 5

A group of 7 of us came to Taos for skiing and relaxation. This lovely home met all of our expectations. It had nice open common areas for our daily meals and a wonderful kitchen to work out of. We dined in every night as well as large breakfast in the mornings. Our only complaint was that the dishwasher was not working properly. It was not a big problem as some us were used to washing dishes by hand in the fire station for decades. We were told it would be replaced soon. The bedrooms were spacious and cozy and made for a good nights sleep in this quiet neck of the woods. There was always something to see outside the windows as well. We had a couple of prairie dogs on the property just outside the kitchen window, lots of birds, and a coyote vs cow stare down one morning. One last thing that could use some attention is the address number. Our group came in 3 separate cars, arriving at different times, and all of us had trouble finding the property. One GPS system put the house over 10 miles from where it really was. Also the house number is missing on the road and needs to replaced. Everybody drove by the property looking for the correct address. Once we finally got everybody there and situated we had a great time.

December 2016 family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here with the family was perfect. It was very comfortable and felt like home. The property had everything we could have ever needed and more. We had eight adults and there was ample room for all of us. The King in the master bedroom was very comfortable and the steam shower was the best! It is close enough to all three ski resorts (Red River, Angel Fire, and Taos Ski Valley) yet far enough that it is very relaxing. The views from the dining room, kitchen, master, and patio are breathtaking! Thank you Lynne for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We had a fabulous week!
