This residential property is an attractive and desirable 'pueblo style' home of adobe and block construction with earth toned colored cement exterior stucco located on a spacious 2.48 acre lot about 20 minutes from Taos. This traditional pueblo style of home is the trademark desirable home style in this area of Northern NM. This particular home was thoughtfully designed to take advantage of passive solar heat gain during the winter months through the abundant South facing windows. There is hot water radiant heat in the saltillo tile covered floors in most of the house. The in-floor piping is 'old school' Entran and there have been no issues with this heating system. Besides passive solar gain and hot water radiant floor heat, there is a Kent woodstove to provide warmth and ambience and an alternative or supplemental form of heat source. A portion of the home was an attached garage of block construction which was tastefully converted to living space. This space is not currently represented as a bedroom and would make a fantastic office, or studio workspace, or other useful space. This particular area is heating by a visible flame, propane space heater. The windows on this room face East towards the Rocky Mountain views through double glass doors with a covered portal in front of them. How pleasant! On the front of the home are the two covered portals which beckon one to sit outside and enjoy the views of the nearby Rocky Mountains. On the South side of the home is a small walled flagstone courtyard with a 2nd access doorway into the home. 50 feet to the south of the flagstone courtyard is a covered 'sombra' , a leisure area to spend comfort time under the shade of the sombra roof while enjoying cooling breezes or sunset viewing. Inside the home, the kitchen is very cute, comfortable and inviting for preparing meals while visiting with friends in the open style joined kitchen and living room space. There is also a comfortable banco or a benchlike raised shepherds bed type cozy resting area to lay on pillows and relax and read or take a nap off of the living room. The sunroom hallway is bright and cheery, saltillo tiled, a great area for plants and collecting solar warmth in the winter months. Doorways off of this bright and spacious hallway lead to the bathroom with a tub/shower, and also to the two bedrooms. Many of the floors in the home are covered with the pleasant and colorful saltillo tiles. Many of the rooms have ceiling beams made of the traditional vigas, the log beams brought down from the mountains. Watch your head as you come in the front door. This is a handmade door for a low entrance door the way they used to make them. The square footage of the home is an estimate, and if square footage is a material concern, then any potential Buyers should measure the square footage for themselves for an accurate assessment. The front door is low, please duck your head when entering this lovely home. The owner loves the infrared sauna in the home, but he can't take it with him. Bonus. This home has Kit Carson Broadband optic fiber hookup for internet access.
