    About this Property

    Nestled along the banks of the Rio Grande under ancient trees, with a private beach and wonderful water access;  this secluded river paradise is a private oasis from the world. Consisting of a main home designed by Greg Allegretti, an attached old log cabin and a separate studio/office which is ready with plans for a bedroom and bath addition so as to have a detached casita.  The main home has an open feel with the living/dining enjoying an incredible river rock kiva fireplace, vigas and beams and French doors opening to the patio and enormous lawn and river vista. The primary bedroom also has a sweet kiva, dressing room and a magical screened sleeping porch for summer sleeps lulled by the rushing river and owl’s hoots. A loft provides a super office space or guest area. The cool, campy kitchen opens to the main living spaces and also leads into the old log home which also enjoys a wonderful corner kiva of river rock, a cozy bedroom upstairs and sweet views. There are so many architectural details that are lovely and special – including lots of old stained glass, coved ceilings, hand make wooden shutters, nichos and vistas to the river and grounds. Great beach areas and river access to enjoy the peace and solitude of Embudo; as well as fabulous water, including two private wells and surface irrigation rights.  The property has been used as a venue for private events such as weddings and family reunions, as well as having done very well with vacation renting. Truly a special hideaway not far from Taos or Santa Fe, and handy to some of the area’s wineries!
