425 Valverde Commons Drive, Taos, NM 87571 (MLS # 102408)
The diverse spaces in this very special residence will appeal to your desires for a comfortable, creative living space, the kind of home you want to wake up in every morning and return to at the end of every day. And for those lucky enough to work from home, are you in for a treat! The first thing you'll notice about the home is the gorgeous custom front door made by a Dutch artist. Open it, and you'll find a barrel-arch entryway, a theme that's reflected in the great room ceiling's beautiful birdwing arches. Soft lines, curves, and obtuse angles are everywhere. There's more to this home than impeccable style, however. High-density insulation gives walls an R value of 50 and ceilings an R value of 65. An energy recovery ventilation in the cupola allows air to circulate; soffit vents vent the roof. The kitchen has a clear pine island (note the pendant lights overhead), ceramic tile counters, a double (and extra deep) sink, and a ceramic tile backsplash behind the range. The living room area has built-in shelves that match the curve of the interior wall and french doors that lead to a pretty, shaded patio with abundant plantings. Just off the living room area is the master suite, which has a walk-in closet and a bathroom that combines floor and wall tiles to lend the space unexpected pops of color. The stairs in the master bedroom lead to a 165sf loft with 7' ceilings. The space, currently used as a meditation space, is lit by an eyebrow window. Down the hall are two guestrooms and the guest bath, where a corrugated tin ceiling adds a rustic touch. Check out the curved vanity, too. The home has a dedicated laundry room, but only a washer will convey with the home. The energy-conscious owners prefer to hang their clean laundry on a clothesline. The home is also equipped with 18 solar panels tied to the grid. Outside, you'll find lush landscaping in the front yard and a productive raised-bed vegetable garden and fruit trees in the side yard. Both the landscaping and the garden are watered from the acequia that borders the property and from the 1600-gallon water catchment system. The 576sf studio is just as insulated as the main house. It has a double-sided sink, hot and cold water, and a half bath. Windows in both the main house and studio are super-efficient triple-paned glass. The studio has an energy recovery ventilation system. The property includes an oversized 338sf single-car garage with a storage area in the back, a 100sf gardening/tool shed, and attic space of approximately 90sf. The roofs of both the main house and the studio are noncorrugated metal (the same metal used for Pro-Panel sans corrugation) to follow the many curves of the roof. It expands in the summer and flattens in the winter, giving the roof an upholstered look. Valverde Commons is a sustainable co-housing community designed for active seniors; at least one owner must be age 55 or older. The community offers a workshop/studio to its residents, completely outfitted with tools and equipment for everyone's use. There's also a Common House, where community members meet for potlucks, movies, etc. The Common House is available to members for gatherings, such as family reunions, book club meetings, and other social events. This rare co-housing opportunity offers you many choices, whether you value your privacy or are looking for a ready-made sense of community.
