It’s rare to find an authentic, historic adobe bungalow that has undergone a top shelf GREEN renovation by one of our best builders at a value price point! The 40’s era Historic LeDoux House is conveniently located at the convergence of Highway 240, Ranchitos and Blueberry Hill in pastoral Ranchos de Taos Cordillera, providing easy access to the north, south and central areas of Taos Valley. This house features entry, en-suite master bath, office, utility/mud room, open living/dining area and country kitchen. Office could be used as family room or enclosed for third bedroom. All mechanicals were replaced: new well, septic permitted for three bedrooms, plumbing, electrical, and radiant floor heat in 2009. GREEN features include recycled vigas, low air infiltration penetration sealing, stained concrete floors, low VOC paints and finishes, insulated adobe walls, refurbished/recycled handcrafted cabinets, 98% efficient “Munchkin” boiler, Sierra Pacific LoE2 windows and doors, and R-45 cellulose roof insulation. Beautiful, smooth plaster walls inside. Roof material is Propanel metal. Additional to the house is an adobe garage with electricity, and a 620sf adobe studio that has an alcove and separate room plumbed for kitchen and bathroom respectively. This area could be used as studio, office, rental or guest house. Enclose one or two garage bays for a workshop with plenty of room to add a multi-car attached carport. Add a portal and walled courtyard to the main house for visual privacy with rural views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. There is no end of possibilities for this flexible property. Situated on valley land with lovely views of Taos Mountain and enormous, ancient cottonwood trees. There are lots of landscaping possibilities to finish this property on the Acequia Madre de la Otra Banda with water rights. No restrictive covenants or deed restrictions. Real adobe charm with all the modern conveniences!
