Description

Rare opportunity to be part of the history of this very special adobe home, located less than 2 miles from downtown Taos. Fantastic rural feeling in the desirable Canon neighborhood. This home was originally built in the 1800's and lovingly maintained throughtout the years. Nearly one acre of lush valley land with acequia irrigation water rights and bordering the Rio Fernando de Taos river. Perfect horse property, complete with barn, tack room and fencing. This sweet 2 bedroom adobe home has been updated, yet still retains the authentic feel of old charming Taos. Casa Pastora (House of the Shepherdess) was built in the late 1800's and was initially owned by an Italian bootlegger. In 1925 the Pacheco/Vigil family decided to move back to the valley from their sheep and cattle ranch between Taos and Angelfire. The main house was built in the late 1800's and what is now the office and living room was added around 1927. The current owner is a decendent and conservator of her family's pastoral way of life. She is a Shepherdess who came full circle back to her roots after a rewarding career and has spent a life time conserving not only the Churro Sheep, a heritage and threatened breed culturally important to the Hispano and Navajo weavers of New Mexico, but also the conservation of rural land based cultures worldwide. Bring your animals and enjoy the beauty and friendly community of this historic Canon neighborhood.
