Authentic 3800 + square foot adobe hacienda built around the classic portal of centuries old spanish design. Perfect for one family, multiple families, a B&B, vacation rentals or a conference center. Built by local artisans, with features like eight hand crafted doors, tierra blanca finished walls, wrought iron fixtures throughout, nichos, pine wood and flagstone floors, a water feature in the portal and a library with a fireplace. Marvel at massive support beams from the oil fields of Texas and the lovely latilla patterns among the vigas, created and installed by famed New Mexico carver, Patricio Barela. Enjoy the cool ambiance an eighteen inch thick adobe home offers on hot summer days and the warmth of seven Carmen Velarde (honored by the Smithsonian for her work) fireplaces, in the winter. You can almost hear the beating of the drums from pow wows in the greatroom long ago or the infectious laughter of R.C. Gorman or Hit the Road Jack being sung by the 90 year Cacique of the Taos Pueblo as he pounds on the drum he made, still here in the house or maybe you can hear the camera rolling from a BBC documentary on DH Lawrence, partially filmed here. If you are truly seeking an authentic adobe with a rich history this is your house! Plus, there is a lovely 1100 sf guesthouse with an artist's loft and a 1440 sf heated shop with a cement floor. All of this on a glorious 5.34 acres of flat irrigable land on two acequias (ditches). Water rights included, as well as two old functional barns and an old barn full of reclaimable, near hundred year old barn wood. Don't fight to get to your property, this lovely home is off of a paved county road, but gated and four hundred feet in, creating privacy and peace and quiet. Oh, did we mention the stunning views and fifty+ year old pines, aspens and cottonwoods that grace the property? New features include a master bathroom with a fireplace, on-demand heating system, high-speed fiber optic to the great house & guesthouse with 50 mbps minimum download and upload, a walk-in closet and a near new 130 foot well in a vault. Fully fenced for your horses or llamas, and ready to move in. Don't miss the opportunity to own this unique property. You would be hard pressed to find another like it in Taos.
