This luxurious home on 5 acres is located on the rim of the Arroyo Hondo Mesa with breathtaking views of the Rio Grande Gorge, Arroyo Hondo River Valley and the rolling countryside beyond. There is a lush tree filled entry garden and a large covered outdoor room with a fireplace surrounded by upholstered banquettes. In back there is a four person hot tub on a covered viewing deck overlooking the Hondo Valley and unobstructed rolling hills up to the mountains of Colordo. The land is part of the new Rio Grande National Park.

The large and comfortable bedroom looks out on Taos Mountain. The house is constructed of high tech Rastra block which helps to keep it cool in summer and warm in winter.
We enjoy 3 Ski Mountains including legendary Taos Ski Valley and Enchanted Forest Cross Country area. Rock climbing, fishing and an excellent swimming hole are 1.5 miles from our house on the Rio Grande RIver on a beach where the rafters and kayakers put in for whitewater trips down the Rio Grande. Rafting begins in April. There is a great 26 mile single track mountain bike trail nearby. Also right there are two lovely hot springs right next to the river. Horse back riding, tennis, pool swimming and golf are all available. Incredible hiking everywhere and in mid-August we combine our hiking in local mountains with mushroom hunting! You will find bacci ball, a horseshoe court and foosball on the property.
The house and kitchen are very well equipped with exceptional china, glassware, linens and all conveniences.
