The south facing windows in the kitchen-dining area, bring the outdoors in, with amazing Sangre de Cristo views. French doors walk out to a covered portal with kiva fireplace. Wonderful for entertaining guests & enjoying the morning sunrises & evening sunsets. The interior is a beautiful space, with plaster walls, archways, a stone fireplace, radiant floor heat, traditional viga & latilla ceilings. The master bedroom's french doors open to an enclosed private courtyard with a deck. A gardener's dream awaits you in the yard with many types of perennials, fruit trees, raised beds all ready to be set up with a drip irrigation system. The oversized 2 car garage could easily be converted to a guesthouse with hookups to all utilities very close. Located halfway between Santa Fe and Taos on the High Road to Taos, this area is primarily comprised of small grass-alfalfa farms raising horses and cattle. Desirable, secluded location being less than one hour drive to Santa Fe, Taos and Los Alamos.
