DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE You will love these two homes on almost 2 full acres that provide the best in views and value and are only 10min to the heart of Taos. You'll be intrigued by the original Mike Reynolds' 1,276 sq. ft. , 1BR/1BA "earthship" that blends the elements of nature with recycled materials to create thick walls with sensuous curves, lots of windows for solar gain, Southwest touches like vigas and Saltillo tile, and interior planters for year rounds green. (Note: this has electricity and conventional plumbing). A totally separate 920 sq. ft. pueblo style home sits up the hill and has picture perfect Taos Mtn. views as well as views over the Colonias Valley. Newer, it too has Southwest flair with Mexican tile accents, 2BR/1BA, and features stained concrete floors with subfloor radiant heat. Both units have W/D. There's also a storage shed for the extras. This property provides sooo many options. A family compound? Long term rentals? Short term rentals? A combination of the two? Owners now use for short term rentals and office. Located just off of the S. end of Lower Colonias Rd. you're just down from Blueberry Hill for easy access to all things North - like Taos Ski Valley, USFS, the Rio Grande Nat'l Monument , and the airport, or South to town, golf, fishing, rafting, or off to Santa Fe.
