Bienvenidos a Château des Montes ~ Welcome to Château des Montes, located at the edge of the El Salto foothills in the heart of Arroyo Seco just down the road from Taos Ski Valley. This estate is truly truly one-of-a-kind, designed by world-renowned architect Antoine Predock built around an impressive two story granite fireplace to resemble a French Mountain Chateau, and once frequented by Elizabeth Taylor herself. The residence contains two wings: the "Des Montes Grand Suite" occupying the north wing with a second stone fireplace and a sizable bathroom with a large tub to soak in the cliff face views of El Salto. On the west wing, the "Aurora Suite", "Fleur Suite", and "Vista Suite" offer great privacy with access to the wrap-around balcony for extravagant views of the Rio Grande Valley and vibrant South-West sunsets. Expanding nearly 5,500 square feet of heated living space, the 4 bed 5 bath home and 2 bath guest quarters possesses countless unique architectural features, and strategically placed solar passive windows to enhance immersive views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains from every room in the residence. The land surrounding the château is equally impressive. Access to acequia water rights from the neighboring ditch helps to keep the property lushly green for raising livestock, or growing a garden as large as you desire. A favorite feature within the estate for many is the well-maintained 1,600 sqft aquatic center with a swimming pool and free-standing hot tub. A close second favorite is the massive 2,500 sqft enclosed courtyard with high walls, BBQ area, and "The Mundo" fire pit...a PERFECT place for post-ski apres, family reunions, or private parties. The estate is a short drive to the Taos Ski Valley for first tracks on the mountain, fishing the Twining River, hiking, biking, camping and all other types of mountain fun. Downtown Taos in the other directions is easily accessible for everything else that one may need. A private residence, continue on as a short-term rental, a bed n breakfast. You decide...But, do not miss the opportunity to own a piece of architectural history in majestic Taos, New Mexico.
