Start your day with a quick workout in your home gym or do a few laps in the pool then take off out your door for your morning hike. You have your choice of patios for having coffee or tea and enjoying the flowers and trees and the birds and the bees. Or if you prefer indoor activities, you can curl up with a book by the fire or watch TV in the room of your choice. If entertaining family and friends (there’s plenty of room for both) is your idea of fun, you’ll love the fully equipped kitchen, formal dining area, plus the greatest family room ever with huge windows to bring the outdoors in. It’s the perfect place for mountain views, watching the snow fly, warming yourself by the fire, catching a game on TV or playing a game of chess or charades. The outdoor spaces are as inviting as the indoor spaces. A large, covered portal with gorgeous views overlooks the pool and hot tub area complete with pool house. The walled front patio is perfect for a party or toasting marshmallows or toasting each other by yet another fireplace. At the end of a busy day escape to the first-floor master suite with his and her baths, a kiva fireplace, a sauna, and an upstairs meditation room (or office, if you must). All your guests can be tucked away so you all enjoy privacy and space in an ultimately serene setting. The 1, 040 sq. ft. 3-car heated garage has 3 additional closed storage rooms and there’s a generator in case of a “lights out”.

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 Christo 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 heated garage for your RV or your vintage Rolls. 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 previous owner, a designer/artist, 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 DS 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 maple 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 giving it old world ambience. The downstairs master suite boasts a kiva fireplace, its own private patio and pretty bath and walk-in. Out the door is a path to the hot tub for de-stressing and stargazing. Follow the curved staircase upstairs to find a hallway/gallery leading to the elegant study or den with lots of tasteful built-ins and more drop-dead views. The yoga/dance studio even has a place for a coffee bar and has its private balcony. The upstairs master suite is made sweeter by yet another balcony to relax and watch the weather or bird watch. A kiva fireplace adds a touch of romance. Then there’s the lovely guesthouse. Although it has its own entrance, it can be accessed from the house by the gorgeous portal which is ample for extending seating or eating outdoors and has a sculptured fireplace and bancos – again the hacienda feel is captured. The guesthouse features a great room with kiva fireplace, vigas, and an open, bright kitchen, 2BR/2BA and laundry. It has its own space for taking in the views but also opens onto the stunning patio areas. 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 with 2 pocket beds and a kitchenette area and 1/2BA. Again, a stunning window to capture the stunning 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 heated 2 car oversized garage attached to the home, there’s a separate garage large enough to accommodate an RV or classic cars plus all your outdoor toys and 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 or even hunt during the season. Love the comforts of home? This property allows one to experience the beauty of Nature from most any room but take it

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 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.

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.
