Cozy up with your favorite books (or Netflix and chill) in this toasty adobe and rastra home just off Blueberry Hill, a location that allows easy-in/easy-out access to both Taos Ski Valley, where you can ski or board, and the Town of Taos, where you can indulge in both casual and fine dining, shopping galore, and cultural offerings such as museums, galleries, and live entertainment every night of the week. Adobe is a traditional building material in the Southwest, keeping your home cool during the summer and warm during the winter; the original part of this home (the living room, study/media room and the dining area) is constructed of adobe. Rastra is the new kid on the block, but like adobe, it’s a remarkable insulator, greatly reducing your energy costs. This home is sited to take advantage of passive solar gain, with large windows along the hallway, which makes an excellent sunroom. If you have a green thumb, your sun-loving plants will thrive here. Both bedrooms and the full bath are just off this hallway. The bedrooms are carpeted, and both have viga/T&G ceilings. One bedroom has a skylight, and the other has glass-brick accents, as does the bathroom, which also has a skylight. Your guests can enter through this hall, or they can enter the home under the covered porch, stepping into the living room, where a Saltillo-tile floor, a stone fireplace with a stone hearth and stone mantel, and viga ceilings welcome you into the heart and soul of this special home. Step down into one of the home’s extra spaces, which we’ve tagged as a study/media room, but this versatile space can serve any purpose that works for you. The kitchen has a four-burner gas range, a double stainless-steel sink, a Kenmore dishwasher, a Frigidaire oven, and a refrigerator. The kitchen adjoins the dining room, which has a ceiling fan. In the laundry room is a Kenmore washer; the dryer does not convey. Just off the dining room is a powder room with a ceramic tile vanity and a skylight. The home has an alarm system, smoke alarms, and a fenced backyard. The views stretch for miles, with sunrises, sunsets, stars, and of course the ever-changing light on the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Come see!
