Beauty, Balance and Nature. Escape to this private compound on 26 acres with expansive views of the Taos Valley. The 2 bedroom grand main house, two guest homes (two bedrooms/one bathroom each) and gardens are a balance of contemporary modern and ancient Pueblo architecture. Santa Fe architect John Barton and contractor Ken Wolosin designed the site with contemporary adobe construction including gently tapered walls atop stacked flagstone foundations. While the views are grand, the houses live in balance with the surrounding high desert setting. Thoughtful gardens complete the setting with special attention to the natural surroundings. The main house features an entry gallery, expansive living area with a west wall of custom windows featuring sweeping views from the Rio Grande Gorge to Taos Mountain to Georgia O’Keefe’s Cerro Pedernal in Abiquiu all the way to Mt. Blanca in Colorado. Luxurious master suite, gourmet kitchen, dining room, two kiva fireplaces, handmade tiles in bathrooms and guest suite. Spacious floorplan, slate floors, rustic vigas and alluring lighting add to the appeal. Elegant indoor entertaining areas transition with ease to the outdoor living spaces, meandering paths and plenty of private acres to explore. Embrace the balance of beauty and nature at this one-of-a-kind, elegant compound.
