Situated in Arroyo Seco and set on a two-acre parcel with full surface water rights, this well thought-out one-of-a-kind 4,230 sq ft adobe home is exceptional. Its open-plan and spacious design, gorgeous wood features, hammered tin accents, custom hand-carved doors, high ceilings, and hand-crafted wrought-iron hardware won't disappoint. Find exposed adobe walls in the entrance area, poured pumice-stone walls in the living room and east side master bedroom, hand-mudded suede finished interior walls throughout the rest of the home. The hand-painted Mexican tile in the bathrooms, built-in adobe benches with storage beneath, unique nichos (some with lighting), Kiva fireplaces, gas log stove, several French doors, and a Dutch door leading to the east wing of the home. The eleven skylights throughout provide much natural light and reclaimed wide plank wooden floors abound except in the kitchen/dining area which is brick and in the 3rd bedroom/studio which is finished cement. In-floor radiant heat across five zones makes for plenty of warmth when needed. In the west wing of the home find a master bedroom with built-in book shelves above and next to the bed, a ceiling fan, and private entrance out to the south side portal area with great views to the mountains - so close you feel you can touch them. Also in this wing find a full Mexican tiled bathroom, a large walk-in closet, the west-wing mechanical room, the laundry room and an additional warm and comfortable sun-filled 600 square foot studio/office/3rd bedroom with separate entrance, windows on three sides, plus a door to a grassy area, and stunning views in every direction. Other details include unique door frames accented with imported tiles above and a ‘zaguan’ with half bath, windows strong in appearance illustrating the depth of the adobe brick and most with wood shelve sills making displaying special items easy and attractive. The fully-tiled master bath has a privacy wall which separates the commode and bidet from the large soaking tub and the separate extra-large shower. It has ample cabinetry and windows on both sides, skylights and it is wired for sound. Between the east and west wings find the living room and open-plan kitchen/dining area. The living room is large with a kiva fireplace, wood floors, built-in bancos, large TV cabinet, firewood storage, buffet and split-cedar plank herringbone ceilings. The large dining/kitchen area has a casual feel, top-of-the-line Viking stove, butcher block counters, pasta faucet, exposed shelves, many pull-outs, large walk-in pantry, abundant storage both inside and out and French doors leading out to the covered patio. The structural headers are beautifully exposed with columns and corbels and two wrought-iron chandeliers hang above the dining room table. In the east wing of the home find the second salon/game room/entertaining area, with built-in seating around the periphery, windows and views galore, a gas fireplace, and French doors to the brick patio. From this salon, walk through the wide hallway, off of which is a walk-in pantry/storage room, an additional storage room with a sink, a wall of built-in cabinets and a Dutch door that exits to the front giving this wing of the house its own entrance. Off this hallway find the entrance to the other master suite featuring a built-in shelf around what would be the head of the bed, two built-in cabinets, a large walk-in closet, bathroom with shower, and copper-topped counter and sink with built-in medicine cabinet with Mexican doors. Let’s not forget the captivating views. The large outdoor portal with dedicated Kiva fireplace is perfect to enjoy all year round. Additional brick patios wrap the home and are lit at night by the wrought iron exterior light fixtures. A sense of tranquility and beauty surround this magical spot all within walking distance of charming Arroyo Seco and just 20 minutes to Taos Ski Valley.
