Quietly perched in Cañon's, among the Pinon and Pines, this Grand Palace desinged by Owner/Ambassador William Eagleton, was inspired by his 40+ years of diplomatic service throughout Syria, the middle east and northern Africa. The design centers around a great room "Great Hall", boasting middle eastern architecture and 16' high ceilings. As you enter through majestic hand carved wooden doors into the foyer, stretching out both horizontally and vertically, go left and enter into the first floor master bedroom, with private bath, vigas ceiling and private doorway to the court yard pool and jacuzzi. Go right and it takes you to an oversized two car garage and storage closet. Straight through the foyer through an additional set of carved wooden doors, you'll enter into the Great Hall, symmetrically surrounded by a chefs kitchen, extra large dinning room, the library and an additional 5 private bedrooms and baths. This majestic living space suggests communing in front of the large fireplace and entertaining beneath an infinite sky of ornate wooden beams above. Ceiling to floor glass doors open from the great room, back out on to the courtyard, complete with tile mosaic fountain, 8' deep lap pool, jacuzzi and a hot tub. The library, dinning room and kitchen sit beneath masterfully crafted vigas ceilings and are surrounded by south-west facing windows exposing sunset views. The library is comforted by a kiva fireplace in the corner while, the dinning room backs up to the great room fireplace, offering an opportunity for fireside dinning. On the main floor, find a private-caretakers bedroom and bath off of the kitchen, which can easily be retrofitted into a wine room, additional pantry storage or even a kitchen addition. Solid wood staircase takes you up to the 2nd floor corridor, overlooking the great room, where solid wood doors open up to three bedrooms, each with a private bath and a Master Suite complete with kiva fireplace, steam room, walk-in closets and large jetted tub. A connecting balcony, unites these second floor bedrooms and calls out to all dreamers to join in, on exquisite night time star gazing. Solid post and bean with adobe construction, just minutes from the Heart of Historic Taos, on nearly 4.5 acres, this luxury home, is grand in every sense of the word. A 4000 sqft custom built palace retreat and get a way, with room to grow, ready for new ownership.
