Living The Dream

Dreaming of a change of scenery?

The scorched views from your Malibu ranch are proving too much of a reminder of the fires that seem to get worse every year? Or perhaps you are simply sick of the rat race and all that comes with it – life in the fast lane has outlived its thrill.

If so, this Chic Shack in Turley Mills might have your name on it!

This absolutely stunning 6,787 sq ft. (6BR/5BA/3CG), Pueblo style home, with swimming pool and hot tub, sits on 20 acres of land bordering USFS. This property is as unspoiled and pristine as it gets; a far cry from PCH and its reminders of fires, mudslides and earthquakes. Never mind insanity inducing traffic!

Stately double doors grace the dramatic entrance leading to the expansive great room with the kitchen, and dining to the left with an inviting sitting room to the right. Fireplaces and plenty of wall space and room for all of your art, make for elegant yet cosy and livable spaces.

Traditional vigas, bancos, nichos, and an abundance of hand adzed wood, rich colored hand troweled plaster, and tasteful tile work, all bring an authentic Taos ambiance to this sophisticated home.

A home gym plus the fabulous swimming pool allow you to hole up for days without fear of getting out of shape besides with all the nature you could wish for, right outside your door, hiking is another option both for fitness and fun!

Outdoor spaces (one complete with fireplace),beckon you and your guests to enjoy your morning coffee and evening cocktails while listening to the birds, no matter the season. An attractive outdoor space for your home is bound to make for a great home improvement project; those in need of services to put together their ideal outdoor space may wish to consider a company like this – In summer, the gardens blooming will delight you with the butterflies they attract and the returning hummingbirds.

During the winter, you can curl up with a book by the fire or watch a movie in one of the rooms of your choice – all offering soaring views of the mountains. That said, the walled front patio is perfect for hosting a party or toasting marshmallows, or toasting each other beside yet another fireplace! Whilst patios can look lovely, some homeowners might prefer to have some decking instead to add some wooden features to the outdoor area. If that’s the case, it’s always worth purchasing composite decking bearer too. This helps the decking to stay in good condition all year round, allowing homeowners to entertain their guests outside whenever they want to.

This house is made for entertaining,and once your friends find out where you have gone, they’ll all be making plans to visit,especially with Taos Ski Valley being merely a short drive away!

At the end of a day on the Mountain, you’ll be happy to retreat to the first floor master suite with his and her baths, a kiva fireplace, a sauna, and an upstairs meditation room (or office, if you must).

All your guests will be tucked away in their private wing, so all of you can enjoy privacy and space along with one another’s company.

Diane Enright’s description of this house informs us that along with all the above, this property includes a 3 car heated garage has additional closed storage consisting of prefab buildings, and there’s a generator in case of a lights out. You may choose to visit web site to get the latter serviced, just to be sure. When you do venture out, you’ll find the location in this gated, upscale area (10 ac. minimums) is convenient to Taos Ski Valley, picturesque Arroyo Seco, the Rio Grande Nat’l Monument, and is only 25 min to historic Taos Plaza. Wow, you can have it all!
