I see trees of green, skies of blue, clouds of white . . . what a wonderful world this 2BR/2BA/2090sf two-story territorial home on 1.4 acres in Upper Colonias offers! The main house has clean, sleek, contemporary lines, with ceramic tile floors; vaulted ceilings; multiple skylights; track, pendant, and industrial lighting; a moving wall between the kitchen and the great room; and a master suite with a large walk-in closet. The main kitchen has cement countertops, a stainless steel double sink, a stainless steel dishwasher, a side by side fridge with water and ice dispensers, a four-burner gas stove, some glass-front cabinets, and above-cabinet display space. And that’s not all. This versatile home includes an attached apartment with a private entrance, stained cement floors, kitchenette, great room, bedroom, bathroom, and balcony. The apartment is also accessible from within the main house but can be locked off, allowing you to rent it short- or long-term. Ski rental? Vacation rental? Den and guestroom for you? You decide! Three dormer windows add architectural interest. Throughout the main house and the apartment, numerous french doors provide ingress and egress as well as natural light. The property comes with water rights. There’s also a two-car garage. It’s rare to find a home set on open land that affords you the kind of privacy you’ll find here. Mature trees (both aspens and evergreens), a walled entry courtyard, and a covered porch all contribute to a homey sense of being safely tucked in, yet the mountain views are fabulous. In summer, hollyhocks and sunflowers add a classic Taos touch. Fence in the grassy pastureland and keep a couple of horses, or simply sit on the porch, soak in the hot tub, and enjoy the chirp of the crickets.
