About Premiere Properties

This home is privately owned and well maintained. New investments in furnishings, electronics and landscaping are constantly made. Many tasteful original works of art by the artist-owner and artist's friends are displayed throughout the house.

Premiere Properties purchased this house in 2005

Why Premiere Properties chose Taos

The home is extremely comfortable, with beautiful architecture, stunning views and two separate family rooms, one for adults, one for teens. It is a great house for parties, with its indoor and outdoor living spaces.

We fell in love with the views and the "Bridge to no-where" extending from the master bedroom to the hiking trails behind the house in the national wildlife area.

The home is just above the charming town of Arroyo Seco. It is a quaint, all-American town, with a top 10 North America Conde Nast Traveller ice cream shop (Taos Cow) and the best 4th of July parade ever. A visit to Alto Salto is wholesome, relaxing and wonderful. Come and see for yourself!

What makes this house unique

The property is unique in Arroyo Seco NM because of the 360 mountain views and privacy. You can forget about the world on the sunny patio listening to the wind in the trees.

Alto Salto - Taos, NM

  • 5 of 5

The entire property is beautiful. The house is comfortable, open and spacious with unexpected luxuries like original artwork from Taos artists. My husband and I stayed for a week with friends who had kids and we had a fantastic time. The views are stunning and there is hiking right out the back door. You will want to sit on the patio forever with a cool drink and enjoy the fresh breeze, and I do not ever remember seeing so many stars at night. This place is truly spectacular and the nearby town, Arroyo Seco, has fun artisan shops and local eateries. We will definitely stay here again.

Spectacular view!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved this house! The views into the valley of Taos are amazing! Everyone fought over the master shower b/c of the view. Fully stocked kitchen. The ping pong table gave us hours of entertainment at night. We enjoyed a nice short hike from the house by going up the road to the dead end...and then following a trail up the mountain. The house was warm in the afternoons in June...too warm to enjoy being upstairs...needs more fans. We stayed in the cooler downstairs then. The house overall was in good working order. Comfortable beds, nice tv's, plenty of linens/towels, nice appliances, plenty of space and seating. Needs some attention to the grill and the bugs (we discussed these with property manager). If I return to Taos, I'd stay here again. A few of the best things we did were eating at Stella's, Taos Inn, and Michael's...hiking to William's Lake...white water rafting the "Racecoarse" with Los Rios River Runners.

Wonderful Family home

  • 5 of 5

This house is very beautiful and comfortable. We stayed for a girl's long weekend and loved the house and the views. Taos and Arroyo Seco are an easy drive and there were great restaurants and live music. We sat outside on the patio for hours and it is very peaceful. The master suite is huge. There were books and movies for the mornings when my friends slept in.

Amazing master bath and master bedroom and deck off master. Great shower in master with view. Great views and wonderful hot tub among the trees. Wonderful patio and deck. Very comforatable beds in all bedrooms. We had 6 adults and 3 young children and did great. Spacious and lots of room for private time. Rustic road and pretty remote site, but we loved it. Big kitchen-- the frig and oven need some attention. If staying more then 3 days you should bring additonal toilet paper, soap and paper towels.
