|DESERT OAK is an authentically restored, architecturally designed, adobe home.
From the moment you walk through the custom latilla gate into a private courtyard, you are surrounded by the comfort of a unique home designed in an elegant, southwestern style.
Custom details include hand-hewn timber beams, imported Mexican tile, and a traditional fireplace.
Taos is a lifestyle, a year-round resort where every season has something special to offer.
Desert Oak is the ideal place to rest after winter skiing in the mountains or a summer rafting adventure through the Rio Grande Gorge.
It is your private base camp for excursions into the surrounding National Forest for camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, llama trekking, cross-country skiing, and climbing.
You will be at the center of this region's cultural events such as Native American ceremonies in the 800 year old Taos Pueblo, the annual Taos Talking Pictures Film Festival, and the Spring and Fall Arts Festivals.
Desert Oak offers the comfort and seclusion that only a private residence can provide. Relax and enjoy.
Experience all of the cultural and recreational pleasures of Taos just as full time residents do, from this quiet and secure haven.
Desert Oak is just two blocks from the historic Town Plaza, surrounded by bookshops, restaurants, and galleries featuring Native American, Hispanic, and contemporary arts, crafts, and antiques.
The renowned Taos Inn, Kit Carson Park, the library, the town pool The Fechin Institute, and the Convention Center; the site of numerous professional meetings and symposia, are closer yet.
The famous San Francisco de Asis Church, painted by Georgia O'Keefe and photographed by many, is down the road in Ranchos de Taos.
A car won't be necessary since an airport shuttle drops you off and picks you up at Desert Oak's door, and a bus that accesses the entire town stops just one block away.
