Situated on 6.6 acres with unobstructed and purposefully protected views of the Sangre de Cristos, this property must be seen to appreciate! Built by Verner Duettra in 2005, this 4,145 sq ft chamois-colored stucco home constructed of Rastra blocks is a solid, efficient, and an environmentally friendly structure. A long, private drive approaching the home brings you to the wide and gracious entrance via handmade and hand hewn Mexican-style double-rounded wooden doors. The foyer leads to the 1800 sq ft open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas. Tight herringbone/tongue-and-groove latilla ceilings, solid vigas, and diamond-finish interior walls are evidence of the ubiquitous quality that characterizes this home. The spacious living area has incredible protected east views to the mountains and peaks including Lucero Peak, South Fork Peak, and Pueblo peak. The main kiva fireplace exhibits a custom mantel specially chosen by Olguin's Woodworks of Taos and is a wonderful focal point. The living room also offers specifically placed floor outlets, a Bose sound system, a high-end Â½ bath for guests, large coat closet, and easy access out to the enclosed patio via a set of three tall and wide French doors that open to a sweet courtyard with a soothing water feature, another fireplace, and natural gas outlet hookup for your BBQ â all which is great for entertaining. The additional large storage closet located just off the patio makes for easy patio furniture storage. The kitchen, a dream in itself, offers a gorgeous western view out towards the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. The kitchen features a coved-style ceiling, designer lighting, a large Wolf range with oven, Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator, large walk-in pantry, and beautiful granite counter tops. The central island is equipped with a wooden countertop, a sink, eating bar, storage below and four-foot long space on all sides for easy mobility (for all those guests who always end up in the kitchen!) The master bedroom located in its own wing of the home has his and hers walk-in closets with custom drawers and ample space. Views are to the mountains north and east and the room is air-conditioned, has a jewelry safe, and is on its own radiant floor heat zone. The master bathroom offers a Japanese soaking tub, very large steam shower, an L-shaped quartz counter for his and hers sinks, custom Taos Tin Works mirrors, and a private toilet. This bathroom, too, is on its own radiant floor heat zone which means you can sleep in a cool bedroom and go into a warm bathroom! To the southern end of the home, just behind the kitchen, you will find two very well thought out parallel hallways with a library wall and a wall of storage cabinets connecting them. Off the east-side hallway find the home's second bedroom with French doors to the courtyard, mountain views, and a full bathroom with extra-large shower. Next to it find the third bedroom currently used as a very generous sized office with built-in wooden shelves, and a nicho filled with more cabinets, which could easily be another master suite. Located off the west-side hallway is the fourth bedroom with an en-suite bathroom replete with tiles hand carried from a trip to Portugal. Also located off this hallway is a closet perfect for all sports gear, a recessed area with tiled counter cabinet that now houses all dog needs, and a custom-made tin-front double-high cabinet for more coats/jackets/sports gear. This hallway also leads to the extra-large heated garage where there is a dog shower. The central area garage floor sits several inches lower than the rest to accommodate any ice melt from the cars . On the far side of the garage is another storage room and a cedar closet. The large parcel possesses two water wells; one used for outdoor irrigation and the other for domestic consumption though both are tied together in the mechanical room and can be used as needed.
