Located minutes from Taos Plaza is this classic adobe home on one acre for the discerning buyer. This home epitomizes the classic style, character, and warmth of Northern New Mexico architecture. Enter through custom front doors with carved Matachine Dancers against a Zia Sun designed by the late Mark Romero. The foyer leads into a sitting room with large kiva fireplace, built-in bancos, and a whimsical mural painted by Taos artist Linda Rauch. Off the foyer is a small office with storage under the staircase. Smooth plaster walls, coved ceilings, and heavy Saltillo tile floors with radiant heat complement the first floor sculptural details of arched doorways, carved rope posts, and hand carved doors with custom hardware. The heart of this home, its kitchen is reminiscent of Morocco with its intricately cut ceramic tile countertops and full backsplash. Upgraded stainless appliances and large island make cooking a pleasure. Through the French doors off the dining room with kiva fireplace, you can walk out onto a large flagstone terrace with panoramic views of Taos Valley below. A library/study off the kitchen features a latilla ceiling and oversized custom bookcase along one wall. French doors lead to a small terrace and gardens. Also on the main level are two bedrooms and full bathroom with custom tile work. The upstairs Master Suite has a kiva fireplace, large picture window, and views of Taos Mountain. There is a dressing room with ample closet space. Steps lead up to the custom tiled bath area with jetted tub, pedestal sink, and separate shower. Two impressive eight foot hand-adzed redwood gates in the style of Nicolai Fechin sit at the top of the driveway. An all adobe detached heated studio with oak hardwood floors and 1.5 car garage with auto door opener complete this jewel of a home. This home would make an ideal vacation rental as well. Close to Carson National Forest with hiking and mountain biking trails in the summer and cross country ski trails in the winter. Wildlife viewing is possible throughout the year.
