7018 State Road 518

Set in the Talpa foothills, on a magnificent 55+ acre north-facing pinon/juniper clad hillside is this brand new, 1600 sq ft, 2 bed/ 1.5 bath territorial style, contemporary farmhouse. Designed by the award winning San Antonio/Austin based, internationally recognized architecture firm of Lake|Flato, this iteration of their well-loved “Porch” home plays off the northern NM vernacular of L shaped adobes re-imagined here for the 21st century. Featuring Thermory Kodiak spruce decking on the expansive porch, densified polished concrete floors throughout, soapstone counters in the kitchen, Fisher-Paykel appliances, Carrera marble in the bathrooms and Zellige tiled bath walls and kitchen backsplash, and large Sierra-Pacific windows, this is home that pulls the sights and light of the site right into every room making this a home that is tough to leave. This thoughtfully planned and built equine-centered ranch comes with private hiking and riding trails into the Carson National Forest, a 100 ft 190 ft professionally designed and built riding arena, a round pen, 5 separate paddocks with 7 run-in shelters, a large hay barn and equipment shed, a separate barn/tack room with its own bath and laundry, 2 full-RV/camper hook ups with power, water and septic, raised beds to satisfy your green thumb, several additional building sites and 2 septic systems. Finished in 2023, this property is that rare combination of superb design, seclusion, infinite views, robust amenities and infrastructure, and an abundance of land bordering the National Forest a mere 2.5 miles from Taos.
