Situated in a lush area of Taos on three irrigated acres, this truly one-of-a-kind three-story territorial style home has to be seen to be appreciated. If you have horses, want sweeping views, and the convenience of being close to town, do not let this home get away! The land itself is beautiful, with an acequia running through the west yard, lush grasses, huge shade trees, easy level-grade ingress and egress, and a shared spring-fed pond located on its eastern border. The farmhouse style stucco home is simply gorgeous. With clean and contemporary features, the home is bright and airy. The home’s entrance boasts a large farmer’s porch, perfect for enjoying lazy summer evenings, and through the French doors off the dining room, another 350 sq. ft. covered patio provides a comfortable place to enjoy sweeping views north and east to the mountains while watching your horses graze in the rear pasture. On the ground floor find the open-plan kitchen and dining area as well as two living rooms, one currently used as a TV room and the other a piano parlor, both featuring traditional style wood fireplaces. The entire ground floor has updated and durable bamboo floors, some new doors, Lutron light switches, and several natural gas heated zones. All windows in the home are original Anderson windows. The gourmet kitchen features stainless-steel appliances including Thermador double-door fridge, dishwasher, Five-Star gas range with stainless overhead vent, and a bread warmer. With the large island, farmhouse sink, pristine quartz countertops, custom cabinets, and open industrial style shelving, not to mention the incredible eastern views to the mountains, cooking will be a dream. The house offers two half baths on the ground floor, one for guests just near the main entrance and one in the mudroom/laundry area that connects the newly appointed kitchen to an attached two-car garage, which has an easily accessible loft providing extra storage space. Throughout all the ground floor rooms, note the varying ceiling finishes that effectively add depth and dimension to each room. The five separate heating zones ensure comfortable and efficient warmth throughout the winter. Upstairs are four spacious bedrooms, all featuring finished blonde colored wood floors. The master suite features a full and recently updated bathroom with double sinks, clawfoot soaking tub, large mirrors, an enormous walk-in shower, and tile flooring. In addition, there is a guest bedroom, a bedroom currently being used as an office, another currently used as a bonus TV room/lounge, and a full bath, also appointed with two separate sinks and a large walk-in shower. And don’t forget the newly carpeted third floor 800 sq. ft. heated room that can be used in any number of ways, including as an additional fifth bedroom. The detached horse stable located in the back yard on the east side of home enjoys power, running water, and a tack room. Again, this is horse country, so you will note the effective use of gates and fences to cordon off areas depending on need and use. The location could not be better! Not only does this house offer incredible sweeping views in almost every direction, it is mere minutes from Taos Plaza and just 20 miles from Taos Ski Valley, with easy access to Ranchos de Taos or Blueberry Hill Road, and further on to the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument. And given the current costs to build in Taos, it would be very difficult to build a home like this, on such precious land (which includes eight acre-feet of surface water rights via two acequias) and in this location for less than the current list price. This is a truly special property! For more check out: bit.ly/upperranchitos
