Bird’s Eye View

If a room with a view is what you are looking for, look no further.

This house is situated high above the Valley of Valdez, just minutes from the village of Arroyo Seco and Taos Ski Valley.

Unique design elements combined with masterful craftsmanship makes this home one of a kind – not to mention the absolutely breathtaking views!

Custom wood and plaster work, intricate details, plus the eco-friendly build combine to create a beautiful and very comfortable and cosy nest, far from the hustle and bustle of daily life. In fact if you are looking for a retreat or a place to get away from it all, you might want to take a closer look at this very Chic Shack.

The house has three bedrooms and three baths, with a one bedroom guesthouse with its own bathroom, making this spot ideal for hosting and entertaining a crowd. A large media/family room with a wet bar is an added bonus.

Speaking of entertaining, the kitchen is a cook’s dream and the living room with its softly curved adobe walls, high ceilings and kiva fireplace is the perfect place to gather in cooler weather. The dining area enjoys year round gardens (as do the other living areas), and thick plank wood floors connect the spaces.

The master suite upstairs boasts its own lily pond together with hand crafted closets (from 150 year old Juniper), and a kiva fireplace. Everywhere one turns, this house surprises with little details along with bold strokes of creativity; Outside a beautiful fountain is a focal point along with the views.

During the summer months the patio, with its spectacular views, will draw you (and your guests) outside to watch the birds Рeagles and hawks share this eerie Рor the stunning sunsets, and soak in the hot tub at the end of a long day hiking the trails just outside your door.

Construction is largely of reclaimed materials and adobe and interior walls are plaster or adobe, making this home both environmentally and people friendly. The passive solar design cuts energy costs and the location is simply as good as it gets. Just a short drive to the town of Taos, access is a windy dirt road making a 4-wheel drive a necessity in winter, but the proximity to TSV can’t be beat!
