7196 State Road 518

Perfection and history combined make this well maintained treasure in Talpa a must see. Nestled under an ancient cherry tree, on the famous Talpa ridge, this fully restored adobe home on 3.04 acres boasts a beautiful outdoor space, a vast outdoor covered portal that faces the lush Talpa valley and the Picuris Mountain. This house has been extremely well cared for and entirely restored to old Taos style and character but embraces modern times. The access is secured with a gate off highway 518, then make your way back down the driveway to a adobe walled and gated front courtyard with a flagstone path that leads you to a garden and the entry way. Once inside you are met with an expansive living area with enough room to accommodate friends, family, and was once used as an artist meeting area. Off the living room is an impressive dining room with double doors opening to a walled interior courtyard with high adobe walls, seating and a large water feature. On the other side of the living room is a cozy family room for reading or games, with a fireplace and comfy, intimate seating area. The kitchen is made for those who love to cook with a Viking appliances, modern features and a beautiful, custom tile installation. The primary bedroom faces the large covered portal and back patio and includes a private fireside reading area, walk in closet and large bath tub beneath a newly added window that provides beautiful light to the space. On the other side of the house is a spacious two room guest area with a bedroom, office, space, bathroom and private covered patio. All of the interior doors were custom made by local master craftsman Pete Barlow, each a work of art and hand made. There are 6 fireplaces (5 inside and 1 outside). This house was made to showcase art with custom lighting features throughout and plenty of space in the 3,496 square foot house. This two bedroom, three full bath Andy Garcia restored house shows the care and history as soon as you walk through the door.
