IF YOU THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO LIVE IN ONE. 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 alleviates the need for gas providing a “clean” environment for a healthy body. . The owners 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 their home incorporate solar features but the “dome” took some research. After doing their homework, they ended up having world renowned builder Mert Hull, designer Jim Kaslik, and engineer Chris Zweifel work with them on their project. They created the floor plan and 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 w/ 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 (one of the owner's passions), 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. (Hammock included). What’s your passion?

Today owners can enjoy the same views of mountains, the valley and the plains from many areas of the home as well as from delightful patios and portals set amidst fruit trees, flowers, pines ,and pinons. Massive adobe walls, smooth hand troweled plaster, 6 fireplaces, vigas, nichos, bancos, hand hewn wood, as well as the dining room fireplace designed for cooking over the open flame, lend a sense of permanence and timelessness to the main house.
