Find the perfect balance between modern amenities and Northern New Mexico styling in this Taos County gem of a getaway.The property is located just 40 minutes north of Taos Plaza in the picturesque hamlet of El Rito. Offering breathtaking views of the Taos Plateau, Rio Grande Gorge and the Latir Peak Wilderness, the three-acre property is shaded by beautiful juniper and pinõn trees. El Rito provides quiet, solitude and easy access to recreational and cultural activities throughout the Enchanted Circle. Groceries, gasoline and other services are available nearby in Questa. The 1600 ft2 main house was lovingly built in the 1980s by renowned El Rito contractor Barry Cook but was remodeled more recently. The main living spaces follow an open, efficient floorplan, while the adjoining primary bedroom and office are separate sanctuaries. The office could easily become a nursery with space for a crib and changing table. The kitchen and bathroom have both been recently refreshed and come with such upgrades as a commercial gas range and spa bathtub. The multiple outdoor living spaces are not to be missed. A covered front porch, gardens, meandering footpaths, meditation seating, an outside dining area and a rooftop deck all make this an idyllic escape. A rainwater catchment system and a new 10 x 16 professionally built shed complete the garden area. The space around the house is amply fenced—designed to keep pets from roaming, while still enabling views of vistas, flora and fauna from the home’s picture windows. The newer 690 ft2 guest house is just a short stroll away from the main house. Completed in 2018, the casita has its own fully equipped kitchenette and bathroom, a separate patio and separate parking. This charming casita could be used to entertain friends and family or seize the opportunity to earn rental income. A locked gate offers privacy and security.
