44 Arroyo Park Drive, Taos, NM 87571 (MLS # 102137)
Nestled on a gently sloping parcel in the Blueberry Hill area, this one-of-a-kind home combines contemporary style and Old World finishes, from the dark wood beam ceiling in the main area of the home to the acid washed concrete floors. There are artistic features and thoughtful touches at every turn. Custom doors, original built-ins, milk paint finished walls, kitchen counters comprising various surfaces, and a distinctive corner fireplace insert add to the home's unique beauty. The home is also built with energy efficiency in mind, using E-crete block construction and benefiting from passive solar. The expansive views to Taos Mountain are repeated in the bespoke "mountain theme" that threads throughout the custom woodwork and window frames. The custom window detail inspired by the mountains is introduced in the front gate and carries throughout the home. Exterior views are visible from almost any point in the home. A custom-made metal gate leads to the intimate walled entrance area, a south facing oasis with latilla accents, mature creeping thyme, and privet and sumac trees. The Dutch front door, with its unique crackle finish, opens into the airy open-concept living, dining, and kitchen areas. The concrete floor spanning this space features a copper patina and inlaid stone accents. The living area contains a built-in entertainment center with surround sound, and a built-in double door closet. French doors bring you out to the east side patio. The covered patio, deep firepit, stunning views, and basalt pavers makes this a comfortable outdoor living space. In the kitchen, the three water taps (pot filler, prep sink, and cleanup sink), plenty of work-space, stainless steel appliances, and solid wood custom built cabinets are arranged for easy workflow. Here, too, unique features abound, from the custom tile back-splash to the raised fridge for easier freezer access. Through custom saloon style double doors, find a spacious pantry, ample shelving, and the combo washer/dryer unit (with room for stack units). The dining room offers an intimate ambiance for dinner parties, with an adjustable light over the table, corner fireplace insert, and large picture window looks onto the front courtyard. From the living room, a stone tile passageway leads to the master suite where corner windows provide views to Taos Mountain and toward the pueblo and two south-facing vertical skylights bring in natural lighting. These thoughtful details carry over to the master bath, with its barrel vault ceiling, limestone tile floor, hand-finished milk paint walls with mica accents (inspired by mica found on the grounds), and sandstone counter-tops. The bathroom boasts high-end fixtures, a vessel sink, large bathtub, and curved walk-in shower with glass block and iridescent tile, and high-end fixtures. The guest bedroom benefits from custom details as well, with built-in banco style cabinets for additional storage, dual closets, movable accent lighting, and windows on the south, east, and north sides. In keeping with the home's unique character, the guest bathroom has a walk-in shower with glass block, custom wood vanity, and a characteristic reclaimed tin ceiling. The attached 400 sq ft studio, accessible via the front enclosed entrance area, houses the home's mechanical room (with newly installed boiler). With a slop sink and high ceilings, this space can be used as a studio or, thanks to the large custom double door, as a garage. This home is one you really do have to see to appreciate.
