Property Description for 60 Vista Lejos Road

Situated on a peninsula in desirable Des Montes, this luxury home and its charming casita offer sweeping 360-degree views to Taos Mountain, Wheeler Peak, Truchas Peak, El Salto, and the western mesa. The property is perfect for anyone desiring a secluded location with stunning views, though horse owners, especially, will appreciate the appeal of almost four private acres with fenced pastures and a barn. And, the sunsets and sunrises are spectacular. After passing through a lovely covered portal patio entrance, enter the 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom home through the custom made front door into the well thought out open-concept living, kitchen, and dining area with expansive views to the east mountains and south out over Taos town. Two additional enclosed ground floor southside solar porches bring added dimension to this space. The spacious living area includes thoughtfully placed nichos, window-seat bancos with hidden storage, and built-in recessed bookshelves, as well as a sophisticated integrated sound system and ‘sun-tunnels’ throughout. The kitchen offers the perfect ‘flow’ for entertaining, with a large central island which offers a built-in cutting board, copper inlay accent, and a fine wood finish. It also features Italian marble countertops, solid wood custom cabinets, matching JENN-AIR counter top range and oven, a new LG fridge, and Bosch dishwasher. The two ground-floor guest bedrooms share a spacious bathroom with high-end finishes. The ground floor also includes a full laundry room with new washer and dryer and laundry chute. All wood kitchen cabinetry is custom-built by Mark Hemphill using clear vertical grain fir and the fireplace mantle and main front door is made by Deanne Hall of mahogany. The interior walls are finished with handmade plaster incorporating various pigments, and the floors are stained concrete with accent designs. The interior walls are finished with handmade plaster incorporating various pigments, and the floors are stained concrete with accent designs. On the second floor, the spacious, one-of-a-kind master bedroom opens out onto a large south side balcony with big views. With clean, airy lines, this open-plan master suite features engineered wood flooring with under-floor radiant heat, custom-designed drapes and blinds, and an art canopy that provides a soft and cozy feature to the room. The home is built to be incredibly efficient, benefiting from passive solar, active solar (eight standing solar panels), and on-demand hot water on a timer as well as energy efficient windows by Eagle, in-floor radiant heat (seven zones total), and an efficient built-in wood burning stove by BIS. The solid pro-panel, hip roof protects the structure, whose exterior walls are made of pumice (a natural lightweight aggregate) complemented with 2x10 frame. The property also includes a delightful 525 sq ft casita with an open kitchen, living, and bedroom area and full bathroom. Like the main home, the casita features fine wall finishes and stained concrete floors. Additional property features include a two-stall barn with tack room (which could easily be oriented as a workshop), an arena, three fenced pastures, 2.89 acres of surface water rights, mature apple and apricot trees, exterior irrigation systems for trees, perennials, herb plants and rose bushes, two buried 1,500 gallon cisterns, a large two-car heated garage, and two walled courtyards. For internet the house benefits from Kit Carson Telecom’s fiber optic internet service. For more information check out

Mortgage Calculator

This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
