404 Valverde Commons Dr

HAPPINESS IS - a stunning, like new custom 3BR/2BA/1CG 1,859 sq. ft., one level, gem of a home set amidst picturesque, established landscaping in the heart of Taos. A pastoral feel is enhanced by the open common area out the back doors and the 10 ac. Sunset park just steps out the front for your morning wake up walk and of course an evening stroll to watch the sunsets. Located in popular Valverde Commons, there are lots of things to put a smile on your face. Besides the fantastic in-town location and setting, this community was designed for intentional living or cohousing where amenities can be shared or not. The large Common House with big mountain views is perfect for catching a new release, enjoying a concert, having a dinner with your friends, or stashing an extra guest. Residents are welcome to use the "barn" with its complete woodworking shop, studio space, and place for garden equipment. There is an age requirement and one member of your household needs to be 55. However there is nothing "retiring" or "cookie cutter" about this development. Each home is as unique as the residents and they share many different interests from skiing, hiking, biking, fishing, and golfing to art, opera, reading and writing. This home has a flair for the dramatic with an artful entrance and a grand great room with high ceiling and lots of windows. A corner gas kiva fireplace, vigas, and lots of wood accents provide desirable Southwest ambience. You'll appreciate the open, upscale, fully equipped kitchen with lots of light and space for preparing lunch or a luncheon with plenty of storage and a pantry. The home is earth friendly and user friendly too. The wood grain, tile floor throughout has subfloor radiant heat for even warmth and makes navigating easy for everyone. The master bath is spacious and has a large walk-in/ride-in shower and the welcoming guest room and bath features a walk-in shower as well. The over-sized one car garage also sports a workshop. Saving on utilities make you happy? The solar panels and added insulation minimize bills and the low HOA fee ($125 mo.) is so reasonable. What makes you happy? What gives you peace of mind? A place tha's within walking distance to town, restaurants, shops, library, and the farmer's market? A home for aging in place with textured flooring to prevent slips, pull out kitchen drawers, curb less showers, and lots of natural light? Beautiful landscaping with lots of flowers, a dry creek, and raised beds for easy gardening? A small community that's active and accepting and helpful to neighbors but respectful if you don't want to anticipate? Valverde Commons provides a lifestyle with its emphasis on quality of life. Isn't it time to relax and enjoy?
