THE PERFECT MARRIAGE. Earthy yet elegant, old yet new, and private yet not remote, this incredible property provides a haven that deftly combines form and function with the beauty of Nature. A carefully selected 11 ac. ridge top site in gated Turley Mill with the Sangre de Cristo mountains as a backdrop provides privacy and quiet and unobstructed views in every direction. The compound consists of a custom 4,850 sq. ft pueblo style hacienda, a 1,500 sq. ft 2BR/2BA guesthouse, a 970 sq. ft. chapel/studio, and an oversized garage for your classic cars. A walled entrance opens to the welcoming front courtyard and leads to the hand crafted grand double doors taking you inside the home. From the foyer your eyes are drawn to the dramatic living room with a 12’ window framing Taos Mountain and further enhanced by 15’ ceilings and a stone fireplace. A myriad of wall space is fantastic for your art collection. The builder incorporated many reclaimed materials to achieve the “old” feel and patina of traditional adobe homes. The wood floors throughout are from an 1870’s schoolhouse and other architectural details are antiques. You’ll find handcrafted wrought iron in handrails, light fixtures and railing. The “new” is most evident in the huge chef’s kitchen with its new Subzero refrigerator, 6 burner DCS range and grill, double ovens, a professional built in wok, plenty of custom cabinets, and granite countertops. Again, large windows bring the outdoors in and a large walnut countertop graces the island providing seating and the warmth of wood. The fireplace is another bonus. A lovely pantry with wet bar is tucked between kitchen and the formidable formal dining room lined with bookshelves and accented with a custom iron chandelier and unique sconces. The downstairs master suite boasts a kiva FP, private patio, and bath w/ walk-in. Out the door is a path to the hot tub. Follow the curved staircase upstairs to find a hallway/gallery leading to the elegant study w/ lots of built-ins and more drop-dead views. The yoga/dance studio even has a private balcony. The upstairs master suite is made sweeter by yet another balcony, a kiva FP to add a touch of romance. The lovely guesthouse has its own entrance and can be accessed from the house by the gorgeous portal w/ a sculptured fireplace and bancos – again the hacienda feel is captured. The guesthouse features a great room w/ kiva FP, vigas, an open, bright kitchen, 2BR/2BA, and laundry. Perhaps the most intriguing structure is the chapel created to mimic the traditional charming churches that dot Northern NM. The lofty, trussed ceiling soars and provides a feeling of space and freedom allowing one’s creative juices to flow. It’s also a versatile space that can accommodate the guest overflow w/ 2 pocket beds, a kitchenette area, & 1/2BA. Again, a stunning window to capture the views. Throughout the property an abundance of patios provides an abundance of separate spaces to take in the awe-inspiring views, to have a siesta, or just enjoy the solitude. Besides the attached 2 car oversized garage, there’s a separate garage large enough for your vintage cars plus outdoor toys & equipment. Love the great outdoors? Take your mountain bike, ATV, cross country skis, snowshoes, or your horse up the road and hit the USFS road that goes for miles and miles. Love the comforts of home? This property allows one to experience the beauty of Nature from most any room but take it outside to the bocci ball court for the best view ever. Garden? There’s a greenhouse w/ watering system. A latilla fence hides the solar panels which supplement hot water heat for the subfloor radiant heating system in the main house and guesthouse for more energy efficiency. Turley Mill is an upscale, gated community with 10 ac. minimums, so you have neighbors but not too close and you’re close to Arroyo Seco, world class Taos Ski Valley, and 25 min. to the heart of Taos. Let the honeymoon begin??

IF YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR THE PAST yet enjoy all the comforts of today, you’ll appreciate the artful blend of past and present in this intriguing property just steps from historic Taos Plaza. Built in the mid 1800’s the home was rumored to once be the girlhood home of Josefa Jaramillo who would become the wife of Kit Carson and Maria Ignacia Jaramillo who would become the wife of Gov. Charles Bent. This traditional adobe hacienda has been lovingly remodeled as a family compound which can sleep up to 16-18. The main wing boasts a 2BR/2BA home plus a studio apt. and features an inviting living room w/kiva fireplace, a luxe master suite with spacious bath complete with clawfoot tub, walk-in rain shower w/stone surround and a copper topped vanity. The kitchen has been upgraded yet retains the flavor of the past with the dining room enjoying an open feel with windows overlooking the courtyard. The second bedroom has 4 queen bunks and bath with 2 exterior, custom vanities for the convenience of guests. The studio/bedroom has its own bath and small kitchen so can become a part of the house or can be closed off for a rental. Looking for some “you” time? The other wing houses a private 2nd master suite with a tasteful living area, kitchenette, bath, plus the relaxing bedroom, spa like bath, and walk-in closet. Thoughtful planning included a separate heated closet for ski, boots, etc. and the studio unit at the end a long-term rental if you wish. Both wings have lots of carved wood, stone sinks, custom cabinetry, vigas, and thoughtful, beautiful details but the best news is that the electrical, plumbing, boiler, windows, and skylights have been upgraded or replaced. The walled courtyard in front provides a firepit in the winter for sitting with friends and sipping a few and a ramada for Summer fun like bar-b-ques and dining under the stars. The location is ideal for walking everywhere in-town, yet you’re tucked off the main drag on quiet Quesnel. The Central Business District zoning allows options that most areas of town don’t. Access to TSV and Angel Fire are easy as is the short drive to hiking, biking, fishing, golfing – you name it. Many furnishings negotiable. Isn’t it time to own a piece of Taos “magic”?

Out of the ordinary yet extraordinary! Contemporary yet classic, timeless yet timely, this spacious home provides a safe haven to renew mind, body, & spirit. The idyllic setting, 6 ac. on the Rio Pueblo, is choice and ancient as evidenced by petroglyphs on the stone walls abutting the river. The hundreds of acres of Taos Pueblo land adjoining ensure quiet & privacy. The clean lines & open spaces of the home are enhanced by the natural elements of wood, clay, cork, & stone. Interior walls of organic American clay clean the air and prevent mold & mildew and a central air system provides a continuous supply of fresh air. Solar hot water provides a “clean” environment for a healthy body. . The owner enlisted some of the best in the business to help fulfill their dream of a stunning home on a stunning site that was also gentle on the earth. A maverick visionary, in 1982 the owner established KTAO in Taos, the first radio station in the world powered by the sun. It was only logical that his home incorporate solar features but the “dome” took some research. After doing his homework, Brad ended up having world renowned builder Mert Hull, designer Jim Kaslik, and engineer Chris Zweifel work with him on his project. Everything about the elegant home was designed to lift ones spirits. Lots of windows frame lots of pastoral & mountain views. The soaring domed ceiling generates a sense of space & freedom. Even a jaded cook’s spirit will be lifted by the “Chefs” kitchen with lots of storage & counter space with 2 sinks plus pull out pantry. Relax in the living room and watch the light play on the walls or dine by the windows overlooking the river and enjoy the colors of the sunset play on the land & sky. The second level master suite boasts an upscale bath and his & hers closets. Colored like the NM sky (Lift 7 at TSV to be specific), the room blends into the outdoors thru French doors with views to the river. Downstairs is a media room, office, the guest bedroom and bath, large laundry room, and the mechanical room. An expansive gallery connects the two domes and contains another office, an artistic ½ bath, and adjoins a lovely solarium/greenhouse. This home even has central vacuum. Why the dome? Besides its beauty, monolithic domes are super insulated and virtually indestructible. The structural integrity of the reinforced concrete has been known to withstand tornadoes, hurricanes, and earthquakes and impact resistant glass throughout adds another level of safety. The land is a one of a kind parcel that lends itself to permaculture, pets (there’s a large dog run) serious gardening, fishing (there’s a river included), farm animals (you have to bring your own) or just relaxing. What’s your passion?

TERRA NOVA - A property like no other. Set in a 3.30 ac. oasis among rolling hills of sagebrush with dramatic mountain views, Terra Nova was designed as a compound, or mini-eco village by renowned architect Ekkehard Weisner to fulfill the owner’s vision of a sanctuary for healing body and spirit. Upon entering through the gate, one finds themselves transported to another, more peaceful world with native plants, gardens, and trees nestling the structures. An intricate brick path leads the way through the vine covered trellis to the fountain and stunning courtyard which itself is a work of art. Situated around the courtyard are three separate structures, three little gems. The original 1BR/1BA Hexagon (1,140 sq.ft), the 2BR adobe (1,012 sq. ft.) and the office/studio (512 sq.ft.) all finished with enviable attention to detail and quality and all combining the elements of nature. The owner, Dr. Angelika Koch, lovingly selected and adorned the homes with custom finishes like Venetian plaster, stone mandalas, special hardware, handmade doors and cabinets, Indonesian pebbles, and stained glass. Other names like Sub-Zero, Dacor, Jenn-Air, Marvin, and Morso speak to quality. More importantly, the compound boasts eco-friendly and people friendly aspects like solar power (3 systems) , well water ( a new well) with the incredible Grander Technology filtering system, water catchment, and drip irrigation. The homes also feature subfloor radiant heat, grid-tie-interface, and broadband. Other creature comforts are the oversized 2 car garage and hot tub. A rich history also comes with the property. Lore has it that it was a sacred spot for Indians 1,000 years ago and arrowheads and chards are still found on the property. Then in the 80’s, the hexagon was purposely built for the ‘channeling of the voice of Bartholomew” because of its spiritual energy field of the land. The structure has also served the Tibetan community of Taos with gatherings and Native American writers and teachers held sweat lodges, ceremonies, drumming and healing there. The current owner has continued in this tradition with her Practice for Integrated and Educational Medicine. Now it’s time for a new owner to enjoy the connection to Mother Nature and the inspiration it brings from this incredible property

THE “IN CROWD”. It’s location, location, location, right? Being right in town within walking distance to historic Taos Plaza and everything Taos has to offer will always be “in” and is a find in our market. The fact that there’s a 10ac. park next door is also a boon. This welcoming 2BR/2BA, 1,435 sq. ft. home in Valverde Commons, the premier Cohousing/Intentional Community in Northern New Mexico could be your answer to life after the rat race, the mundane, and the ho hum. The home is basically new (2017) and has a bright, light great room with gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen w/pantry, an open dining area plus all the Southwest touches like vigas, nichos, and tile floors. It even has a sleeping nook. The master bedroom has a nice walk-in and bath with walk-in shower. This was a custom home for an artist so the second bedroom is equipped for a studio complete with large closet and sink but of course could still be a spacious guestroom. An oversized mechanical room has storage. A deck off the dining area is the place for sunsets and the patio is a place to enjoy the summer breeze. Fido will appreciate the fenced yard. What are Cohousing/Intentional Communities? What is Valverde Commons? Almost 20 years ago a vibrant collection of Taos locals wanted a place near town where they could enjoy walking or biking to shops, restaurants, the library, farmer’s market, concerts and openings as well as being in a pastoral setting and attached to the land. One person has to be 55 – like a retirement community but few here are “retiring”. They wanted a beautiful space with views of the mountains for gatherings, concerts, dinners, and activities. They wanted an open space to feel safe while walking the dog or just walking to count their steps for a healthy heart. They also wanted a woodworking shop, gardening spaces and studio spaces. They wanted all this while still making a small footprint on Mother Earth. Thus, Valverde Commons was born. Now with over 26 existing homes of the 28 max, this baby is thriving. The club house is beautiful, there’s a 10 ac. Sunset Park adjoining the compound for those walks (and sunsets), and there’s a big barn with a workshop and a place for gardening equipment yet nothing about Valverde Commons is common. Each house is unique as are all the residents. One can participate as much or as little as you like. However, beware. With this group you may find yourself in a Taos ski group, a biking group, a birding group, an archeology group, a readers group, the opera group and then there are writer, painter, and potter groups. Surely there must be a wine group. Didn’t see what you like? You can start your own group. Valverde Commons is a place to be who you are with accepting and helpful neighbors only asking that you be a good neighbor too. Participation is not mandatory. Cohousing is a lifestyle. Check out Valverde Commons at www.valverdecommons.com and see if this could be your next home.
