Taos Beinn Bhreagh, Gaelic Irish for "Beautiful Mountain" and pronounced "Ben Vray", is the name of our adobe home in Northern New Mexico. Here, just north of Taos and close to the bucolic town of Arroyo Seco, your eyes are constantly filled with all that is beautiful and unique to the Southwest. From the windows wrapping the front of this special 3 bedroom 2 bath authentic adobe home, your eyes are drawn up to the beautiful and idyllic Sangre de Christo Mountains that turn brilliant crimson with each sunset. The Sangre de Christo's host the World Class Taos Ski Valley and thousands of acres of woods, streams and hiking trails. Looking in the opposite direction, over the 3-foot high adobe garden privacy walls, you can see mesas, the Rio Grande Gorge and 60 miles to the distant South mountains.
