This is a wonderful old Taos adobe home. The original house (now bedroom #2) was once the home of a family of 9-kitchen and bath then were outdoors. It is thought to be 250+ years old and is considered an historical property. Like many Taos homes it was added to in the ensuing years.
This home is delightful for a couple. It is a spacious home which is unusual for an old adobe. The layout is perfect for a couple and would be especially comfortable for two couples since the two good sized bedrooms each have full, private baths and are separated by the sunroom and great room. There is a queen sofa sleeper in the sunroom and in the great room is another queen sofa sleeper. Both have new gel foam mattresses Both have all bedding. Cost for these sofa sleepers is $25 per guest per night which can be left at departure.
The house is cozy in the winter due to thick adobe walls, two operable kiva fireplaces and very efficient gas heaters in great room and each of the two bedrooms.. There is always a good supply of firewood under the carport.
Summer is delightful and cool inside with screened operable windows and swamp coolers . Great for outdoor living with a covered deck off master bedroom and a wonderful front flagstone patio/ covered portal with table and chairs, BBQ and outdoor fireplace. The house is furnished with interesting antiques. sculpture and original art. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to produce those gourmet feasts or a quick snack for two. Bathroom #2 has a washer and dryer for those chores that call out even on vacation. The yard is fenced and well behaved dogs are welcome at a small additional fee. ($10 per night per dog. which you may leave at the home."Mutt Mitts" are located in a decorative box outside and "Dog Sheets" provided inside for sofas and beds.
This home was featured on this summers Taos Home & Garden Tour in August for 500+ tour goers. This is my fourth home to be featured on a Tour! Too much fun and such a great compliment to my style!
We just finished re doing both baths with tile and new tubs and great tilework around all kiva fireplaces as well as new flagstone hearths and bancos (benches).
If my calendar shows this home as booked please look at Vrbo 273116 or Vrbo 860840. These are two and three bedroom homes that I also own in Taos.
The house has a wonderful, peaceful feeling and yet is only a few minutes from all Taos has to offer..good restaurants, shops, galleries, the Taos Pueblo and many great outdoor activities).
