TERRA NOVA -a property like no other. Set in a 3.2 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 (1,140sq.ft), the 2BR Guesthouse (1,012sq. ft.) and the office/studio ( 512sq.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 with the incredible Grander Technology filtering system, water catchment, a dome greenhouse, 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.

RETIRED BUT NOT RETIRING? OVER 55 BUT YOUNG AT HEART? This welcoming 2BR/1½ BA, 1, 060 sq. ft. home in Valverde Commons, the premier CoHousing Community in Northern New Mexico (55+ in town community), could be your answer to life after the rat race, the mundane, and the ho hum. The home, the only one for sale, is basically new (2016) and has a bright, light open living area, kitchen w/pantry, Saltillo tile floors and Mexican tile accents, a portal on 2 sides and patio plus subfloor radiant heat, nat’l gas and city water and sewer. What is CoHousing? What is Valverde Commons? Almost 20 yrs 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. 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 20 existing homes of the 28 max, this baby is thriving. The club house is beautiful, there’s 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. CoHousing is a lifestyle. Check out Valverde Commons at www.valverdecommons.com and see if this could be your next home.
