A DESTINATION RETREAT. Adventurous? Daring? Creative? Bold? Eco-Warrior? Nature lover? All of the above? Let this captivating, custom, eco- friendly 3BR/3BA, 5,225sq. ft. home and studio with a 1BR/1BA 854 sq. ft. guesthouse be your path to life a cut above. Tucked high above the Valdez Valley only minutes to Taos Ski Valley, the views are unsurpassed, the craftsmanship masterful, and the aesthetics awesome. In an area of breathtaking views, you will find the views from the front deck incomparable. The mountain setting snuggled in the tress provides a delicious sense of privacy and a waterfall at the domed entrance sets a tone of serenity. The dramatic living room features lots of wood, curved adobe walls, high ceilings, kiva fireplace, and a masterful lighting sculpture above. Colorful Mexican tile enhances the spacious kitchen with willow accented custom cabinets. Cook pizza for a crowd in the Italian pizza oven, or feasts for friends in the fully equipped kitchen and with large pantry. The dining area enjoys year round gardens as do other living areas and thick plank wood floors lends warmth and ties the areas together. On the upper level, you'll find the master suite with a small lily pond, hand crafted closet doors of 150 yr old juniper, and a kiva fireplace. The artistic shower in the master bath is a gem. An oversized media/family room w/wet bar also has room for tai chi, yoga, dance, ping pong or pool. The office may be the best ever with its abundance of windows bringing nature into you and provides the place to write your memoirs or watch your portfolio in the midst of nature. 2 delightful guest rooms and a full bath awash in color complete the upstairs. The attached IBR/1BA guesthouse with full kitchen and bath has its own entrance, is on one level, and has an open living area with more big windows for more big views. It's artfully done with lots of custom features, sensuous curves, and a fireplace, of course. Artist, musician, potter? There's also a large, finished studio. The location is a photographer dream. Outside a beautiful fountain is a focal point along with the views. Dine al fresco on the patio with its outdoor grill and watch the weather or the sunsets or soak in the hot tub and count the stars and your blessings. Construction is largely of reclaimed materials and adobe and interior walls are plaster or adobe, so it's environmentally and people friendly. The passive solar design cuts energy costs. This "find" is found within a short drive to Taos Ski Valley and USFS and only a few minutes more to Taos Plaza. Charming Arroyo Seco is nearby too. So many inviting spaces to wind down, relax, and reflect. Access is a windy dirt road so 4-wheel drive is needed in winter but the destination is worth the trip!
