My wife and I are lovers of the southwest and Taos area and found a property to build a custom home in 2000. Our family designed and built the house using local materials and techniques to the delight of many guests who have enjoyed the peaceful surroundings at the place we call the Retreat at Rancho Canyon.
Just outside Taos, but next to 100,000 acres of Carson National forest with great views, this property and area was love at first sight.
A great passive solar location with privacy, views, it has it all. We have added on to the house and provided new features which make it a true Retreat property!
