About this Property

Architect Antoine Predock described this majestic 5,000-square-foot residence as "a poem on the landscape.” Nestled on a 24-acre parcel on the vast plain of Des Montes—between the town of Taos and Taos Ski Valley—the home is surrounded by more than 1,000 acres of largely undeveloped land, resulting in staggering 360-degree vistas. Its silhouette recalls a mountain, with interior and exterior staircases and a bridge that serves as the north-south axis or crossroads. Designed and built with entertaining in mind, it features a 3,000-square-foot portal that surrounds living and dining areas with 35-foot ceilings and expansive windows. The master suite has a private east-facing patio perfect for enjoying sunrises over Taos Mountain. Also ideal for horses, the property includes a corral and a stable as well as an exercise room and a greenhouse. This is a rare opportunity, a sophisticated yet comfortable home that offers ample space and respects the traditions of northern New Mexico.
