TREASURE IN CAÑON FOOTHILLS! This adobe home and guest house on 3 acres offers the extraordinary combination of wonderful dwelling, tremendous setting and loving essence that is not easily found. The main residence of 4400 sf is 3BR 3BA and features a grand living room, formal dining room, and custom kitchen, with an intentionally expansive design to capture the natural light and remarkable views. The separate guest house is 1040 sf, with living room, kitchen and oversized bedroom. Outdoors, abundant views of Taos Mountain and the valley boost the appeal of the many patios, covered porches, and an impressive north-side deck. The location, in Cañon Foothills, is privately situated amongst mature piñon and juniper trees, yet only a short distance to Taos Plaza. The home and guest house are sited on a two acre parcel, with an adjacent acre included to protect the western views. Constructed traditionally in the Northern New Mexico Spanish manner, the homes are made of authentic adobes, and feature architectural elements such as kiva fireplaces, smooth plaster walls, vigas, Saltillo tile floors, nichos, and lentils. Custom craftmanship of local artisans Mark Romero, Gilbert Vargas and James Rannifeld are showcased in the hand-crafted doors and cabinets. The main-house kitchen was recently updated and remodeled with new counter-tops and appliances, and the entire heating system was replaced during 2021 when the owners converted from propane to natural gas. It is the essence or spirit of this home that distinguishes it from many others. A happy home and venue for many social gatherings for over four decades, there are many intangible qualities that cannot be replicated and are understood only when experiencing the home. Furnishings and additional acreage available. Owner-broker.
