    Description

    "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful. William Morris. This top-of-the-world property in Valdez is an incredible combination of the useful and the beautiful. Designed by the owner, who had a unique vision of permanence, practicality, and grace, this home and its companion guesthouse and studio/chapel were constructed with careful attention to even the tiniest detail. Located on 11+ secluded mountaintop acres (and yet only minutes from Taos Ski Valley, the Village of Arroyo Seco, and the Town of Taos), this property is bordered by the national forest and is a true family compound. Step through antique iron gates to the walled entry courtyard of the main house, and from there through arched double doors into the entryway of the home. Straight ahead in the great room, you will see a breathtaking view of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, perfectly framed by a 12-foot-wide multi-paned window. Also in the great room is a focal-point territorial-style fireplace offering a welcoming gathering place for your friends and family. Throughout the home are antique pine floors reclaimed from an 1870 schoolhouse in South Texas complete with 150-year-old splatters from the childrens inkwells! To the left of the entryway is access to the huge country kitchen, which includes a sitting area with a fireplace. You will love the rustic touches such as the custom designed range hood made with repurposed bridge timbers, but the kitchens functionality is entirely modern and upscale, with a 6-burner DCS range and grill, double ovens, and professional wok calibrated for high-altitude stir-fry cooking; a 4-drawer Sub-zero refrigerator system; and a Bosch dishwasher. Also on this side of the home is the formal dining room, which also doubles as a charming library with access to a wet bar and an outdoor living and dining area. On the other side of the home is the downstairs master suite. Antique Mexican doors open on to a private brick patio, and a stone path leads you to the hot tub overlooking the mountains. The buildings and the courtyards of this property feature numerous architectural artifacts, including antique doors and gates. In keeping with the owners desire to create a patina of age, the hard-trowel plaster walls have deliberate imperfections, and the vigas were stained and oiled to make them appear old. Upstairs is the homes second master suite, which has a private balcony finished with an antique hand-forged iron railing. An extra-wide gallery with floor-to-ceiling shelving and a windowseat offers a perfect spot for showcasing your collections and connects the master suite to the office and entertainment room. At the end of the hall is the exercise studio, with a beverage center and private balcony. The homes mechanical systems are a work of art, with solar panels tucked away behind a latilla fence and a fully integrated rain catchment system that channels runoff into underground storage tanks that hold 16,000 gallons of water. In turn, the tanks are connected to an intricately designed filtration and purification system. The house is a study in efficiency, with careful consideration given to whole-house energy systems incorporated into the original design. The guesthouse is connected to the main house by an outdoor living and dining area. Your guests will find every comfort at this casita, which has a full kitchen, a great room with a corner kiva fireplace, and two bedrooms with en suite baths. French doors lead to a large, multi-level stone terrace designed for outdoor living and entertaining. The studio/chapel has a trussed ceiling, a kitchenette area, a bathroom, a Jotol woodstove, and two cupboard beds with large picture windows looking out over the mountainsjust in case you need a spot to stash more guests. The propertys second garage is large enough to hold an RV along with a large assortment of other recreational toys to enhance your experience at this mountain retreat.
