Chamisa Passive House


First certified Passive House and LEED Platinum Home in New Mexico and in this combination to our knowledge probably the first and only one in the country. This is a very exceptional home in many regards.

Are you looking for a very comfortable and super efficient place to live luxuriously with Southwest flair? Then you came to the right place. This recently finished home on the North side of Taos close to the Ski Valley and to town has it all and is available on the market.

Enjoy its family friendly and livable layout with a great feel of open space and tranquility. You just have to experience the amazing comfort level for yourself. Always fresh and filtered air 24/7 with even temperatures all year around provides you with the healthiest and most comfortable indoor environment. Natural materials and high- end finishes are everywhere and beautifully mud plastered walls steep this place in intriguing light.

The stunning views through a panoramic living room window reveal the changing beauty of Taos Mountain throughout the seasons. A large west-facing porch sets the stage for the daily spectacle of amazing New Mexican sunsets and views into pristine pastureland.

Two bedrooms with a shared bathroom, a family room and a master bedroom suite with (2) walk- in closets and a steam bath shower in the master bathroom where you can soak your bones after a day on the slopes make this place a dream to live in. Beautiful details and special features are too many to mention here.
You should see the spacious garage, which can also be used as a shop with great storage- impressive!
An open gourmet kitchen with granite countertops and solid quality wood cabinets is waiting for you to cook a tasty meal and spend fun times with your family and friends.

This home is truly exceptional on so many levels. Designed and built by a team of experts it is the ultimate in energy efficiency achievable today. Based on new building science and a much higher quality building envelope heat losses are reduced by a record breaking 90%. Our team designed this home to the Passive House Energy Standard, the most stringent standard worldwide.

A solar hot water system provides the heat for the radiant floor tubing and takes care of your domestic hot water needs (shower, cooking etc.) Hidden behind parapets is a solar electric array that takes care of your electrical needs. And then there is a whole house ventilation system with 95% heat recovery of the warm exhaust air stream. Your home will always be perfectly ventilated with filtered fresh air,- dust, pollen and bugs will stay outside. You can feel the difference,- it does not get any better.
