WHEN ONLY THE FINEST WILL DO! Nothing was spared in design and attention to detail in creating this private, gated, mountain estate on 10 acres bordered on 2 sides by Nat’l Forest in desirable Turley Mills. Designed by respected architect Bill Hoffman, the expansive 3BR/3BA/ 2CG home w/office and several stunning outdoor spaces deftly combines form and function with the beauty of Nature. The indoor spaces flow beyond their boundaries to outdoor living areas all in a park like setting. Views abound from every window and every space on every level. The home is setback and accessed by a circular drive leading to the beautiful gardens that accent the stunning entrance. A massive custom door (one of many custom or antique doors) leads into the dramatic entrance. High ceilings, vigas, beams, skylights, custom light fixtures, sensuous hand troweled diamond finish interior plaster, and wood flooring reclaimed from a ‘30s schoolhouse grace the living areas and create the desired Southwest ambience and Oldworld feel. A sculptured kiva fireplace anchors the great room that is further enhanced with a wall of windows for views over the manicured grounds to the mountains beyond. The flow is seamless to the expansive dining area with tasteful built-ins and to the well thought out kitchen with top names like Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Bosch amidst lots of granite and lots of custom walnut cabinets. You’ll find counter seating for 4 plus a sweet spot for 2 for coffee and croissants and an abundance of windows along 2 sides bringing light and the outside in. Of course, there’s a butler’s pantry. The grand portal off the kitchen and living room is the perfect place for entertaining a few or fifty. Prepare to be charmed by the office off the hallway boasting antique wrought iron interior doors and more pretty views. Also downstairs is the premier suite with a corner kiva fireplace and its own patio/portal to enjoy the birds and bees and flowers and trees. The adjoining premier bath and walk-in closet are also deluxe. (NOTE: Downstairs is one level with all doors being oversized for wheelchair/handicap access) The magic continue upstairs. Of course, the 2 bedrooms there are view filled (owners use one as an office) and highlighting the vast views are two incredible decks which will inspire awe in even the most jaded observer. The West deck is situated for sunsets and watching the everchanging weather and an even larger deck with vaulted ceiling allows for Summer sleeping and stargazing. The peace is palpable. Everything here is about quality of life. Oversized heated 2 car garage? Yes. Super laundry room? Yes. Efficient subfloor radiant heat? Yes. Good well water? Yes. Fiber optic? Yes. Love the great outdoors? Hiking, biking, riding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and just walking are just out your door into thousands of acres of USFS land. Taos Ski Valley is less than 30 minutes, fishing and rafting nearby, and even golf is not far. Colorful Arroyo Seco is close for coffee, restaurants, art, shopping, and all Taos has to offer about 25min. away. Yes, you can have it all!!
