Why Stephen Gates chose Taos
We were simply awestruck by the beauty seen from the homesite. When the agent took us up there and we stepped out of the car, our first thought was OMG, which I said out loud, probably costing us another $10K. We've never been in a place with such varied and magnificent views and with sunsets and rainbows like we've never known. They call NM the land of enchantment and being up on this mountainside looking down to the valley below and mountains around us is exactly what the brochures claim, as hard as that may be to believe. Enchanting is the correct word.
What makes this house unique
Odd as it may sound, we have a lot of birds here even though it's a dryer kind of forest (pinon and juniper) with some sagebrush. We do have a water feature, an orchard and some special plantings for birds, so we end up with nesting Mountain Bluebirds, Towhees, Hummingbirds and a wide variety of other birds large and small. Our floor to ceiling windows in the dining room give a real birds-eye view (sorry, couldn't help myself) of their shenanigans.
