Taos Parade of Homes

Taos Parade of Homes 2016 - Benefiting Habitat for Humanity of Taos

Habitat for Humanity of Taos

Habitat for Humanity of Taos is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, an ecumenical, nonprofit Christian housing ministry building decent, affordable housing in partnership with people in need. Habitat for Humanity of Taos has an open-door policy: All who believe that everyone needs a decent, affordable place to live are welcome to help with the work, regardless of race, religion, age, gender, political views or any of the other distinctions that too often divide people. In short, Habitat welcomes volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds and also serves people in need of decent housing regardless of race or religion.

Why Taos….The town of Taos is in northern New Mexico, 110 miles northeast of Albuquerque. Taos is at an elevation of about 7,000 feet and has a population of 5,000. Surrounded by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains which includes Wheeler Peak, the highest peak in New Mexico at 13,100 feet this high desert area shows the Southwest in all its beauty. The air is thin, the humidity is low and the sun is bright.

Taos is also home to the Taos Pueblo, a multi-storied adobe building that has been used for more than 1,000 years. There are also world class museums and galleries, the historic Taos Plaza, the historic San Francisco de Asis Church in Ranchos de Taos and the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, 8 miles northwest of Taos. The latter spans 650 feet above the river.

Tourism is the dominant sector of Taos economy. As a result, the majority of the population works in the service industry. More than 20% of the population lives below the poverty line and the median personal income is $26,000. In contrast, the average home price is $340,000 and, according to the State Housing Authority, 90% of the people who live and work in Taos cannot afford a home of their own.

Remember that 100% of the proceeds from the Taos Parade of Homes go directly to Habitat for Humanity of Taos. Feel free to make an additional donation with the Habitat for Humanity of Taos volunteer at any of the homes you visit. Plan on stopping by Home #5 on the event at 506 Lamento Del Coyote, which is the 30th home built by Habitat for Humanity of Taos in the Taos County area. Check out the unique construction techniques used in Taos – i.e., adobe construction, which is used by only a couple of Habitat for Humanity organizations nation wide.

Home #2 – 7160 State Road 518

Taos Parade of Homes 2016 - Home #2 - 7160 State Road 518

PAST PERFECT. If you have a passion for the past yet appreciate all the conveniences of today, you’ll find this historic 200+ yr old renovated adobe a gem. The 2,700 +/- sq ft main house boasts 3BR/3BA and beautiful living areas indoors and out. Family and friends will love the delightful 1BR/1BA guesthouse and the small green house and root cellar are a bonus. The compound sits on the Talpa ridge overlooking the Ranchos Valley and is steeped in history. Remnants of pit houses with pottery chards and arrowheads found there date back to 1100-1200 AD. By the early 1800’s it was settled by Spanish colonists and then in the early 1900’s the natural beauty of the area had attracted artists from all over. Today owners can enjoy the same views of mountains, the valley and the plains from many areas of the home as well as from delightful patios and portals set amidst fruit trees, flowers, pines, and pinons. Massive adobe walls, smooth hand troweled plaster, 6 fireplaces, vigas, nichos, bancos, hand hewn wood, as well as the dining room fireplace designed for cooking over the open flame, lend a sense of permanence and timelessness to the main house. The kitchens and baths were all thoughtfully and tastefully remodeled to the Taos of today with names like Viking, Sub Zero refrigerator, and Fisher Paykel. The kitchen w/pantry provides plenty of room for cooking for a crowd or a couple and the large dining room has space and views for all plus room for expanding the party to the adjoining patio. A hardwood staircase leads to the romantic upstairs master suite. Cozy by the fireplace or soak away stress in the lovely claw foot tub then head to the balcony to end the evening counting the stars and your blessing. It’s past perfect and picture perfect too!
