Located in the Stagecoach Hills Neighborhood Association boundaries in El Prado, this one-of-a-kind property is a must see! Meticulously designed and built by a husband and wife architectural team in 2007, this contemporary home combines the best of passive solar and low cost, efficient technology without sacrificing modern conveniences. This is the perfect property for anyone interested in unique architecture, sweeping views to the mountains, low monthly operational costs, privacy, and plenty of outdoor living. The 3,000 sq ft xeriscaped walled courtyard area includes a water feature, hot tub, and outdoor grilling and eating area. Constructed of pumice-crete walls and a solid large timber structure, the property offers consistent comfort during all seasons, high ceilings, a pleasing mixture of textures, fantastic natural light, numerous built-ins, custom cabinetry, book shelves and interior planters. The innovative grey water management system provides water for outdoor landscape irrigation. The master bedroom, with private access to the courtyard and hot tub, offers a walk-in closet and full bathroom with walk-in shower and air-spa tub. The other two bedrooms share a full bath and have plenty of closet space, as well as views to the charming courtyard and vistas further to the south. The upstairs office area offers high ceilings, uniform light, custom cabinetry, a work sink and access out onto the pro-panel roof, if ever needed. The property is located 1.5 miles from quiet Taos Regional Airport and offers easy access to Rio Grande del Norte National Monument, Manby Hot Springs, as well as to Taos Plaza, Arroyo Seco, and further on to Taos Ski Valley. Level grade road access makes getting in and out of this property a cinch.
