The home on Brooks Street is full of possibilities in its elegant indoor spaces and extensive patios and courtyards. Local lore says that it was home to Taos author Frank Waters. A sense of history infuses the thick abode walls. The house was first built in the late 1950s or early 1960s and has been added to and updated over time. All parts of the home are seamlessly integrated into a classic adobe structure, accented with bright blue windows.

The heart of the home is the large kitchen and dining room, along with the den that captures the gentle rays of the late afternoon light. The original wide plank wood floors, stucco walls, and ceiling vigas anchor the home in its deep Taos history. The home was the Brooks Street Inn for 30 years. Later it was extensively remodeled and expanded by the Dominican sisters of St. Catherine of Sienna as a retreat center for its members. Currently, it is an expansive and gracious single family home with plenty of room for visiting family and friends.
