Property Description

Turtle Walk, the former home of Millicent Rogers, is a bucolic 71-acre estate nestled in the Taos Valley. A quiet refuge from the modern world, it offers consummate privacy and unparalleled views of Taos Mountain and the surrounding ranges. The adobe main residence was built around a courtyard with deep portales and a majestic weeping willow. It features well-proportioned rooms, each with a distinct character, from a grand library with deep-set arched windows to a master bedroom with an oversized window and courtyard fashioned after the famed Alhambra fountains. Fireplaces and other gems--such as vigas hand-painted by Dorothy Brett and a Carrara marble tub fed by a waterfall--can be found throughout. Completing the alluring picture are a pool, a guest cottage, a caretaker's house, a horse facility, various outbuildings, an acequia with surface water rights for approximately 22 acres, and two wells. Mature trees dot the surrounding hills, and the views in every direction are breathtaking. Furniture may be negotiated separately from property.
