Alto Vallecito - a contemporary custom home on 1.4 acres with expansive unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, including its' namesake Vallecito Mountain (12,643’). Conveniently located halfway between the town of Taos and world-famous Taos Ski Valley with a unique design interpretation of “Taos Architecture,” blending a pueblo-style flat roof with a pitched roof creating grand cathedral ceilings in the great room and master bedroom.
The floor plan is ideally suited for 2 couples (with bedrooms/baths on opposite ends of the house) or a single family with children. The kitchen and living/dining areas are essentially one big space made cozy with a wood-burning stove and takes advantage of the grand mountain views via large picture windows. The home is lovingly stocked by the owners with books, movies, entertainment system, a gourmet kitchen, lead crystal wine glasses, and high quality linens/towels. Enjoy a drink and mountain views from the brand new outdoor hot tub after taking a short walk to the cute village of Arroyo Seco just 1/2 mile away.
"A regional contemporary hybrid of two common Taos styles, the design blends flat roof and territorial pitches to create a truly unique interpretation of Taos Architecture. The home is positioned to take advantage of the panoramic views of the nearby Taos Mountains and looks beyond to capture the distant peaks of the Truchas Range. Constructed of 14" pumice crete with R-factor of 28 and wise solar orientation keep the home warm in the winter and cool in the summer". Jed Magee, Architect
