Thanksgiving At Diamond Tail

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

The air is crisp and the views are clearer than ever in this late fall season. We at Diamond Tail Ranch are very grateful for the beautiful expanse of land surrounding us here. We have had our first dusting of snow but there are still a few flowers holding on before they hide away for winter. There is also warmth. The community of Diamond Tail is preparing a Holiday Progressive Dinner and the Placitas Holiday Sale is bustling with visitors from all directions. As always, the local artists are offering an eclectic selection of art, furniture, and specialty foods in preparation for the holidays.

There are two houses available for viewing in the Diamond Tail community if you would like to arrange a visit. Please take a look at the ristrarealty.com website that has recently been updated.

NM Homes of Enchantment Parade

Sunday, October 25th, 2009

We have had three successful NM Homes of Enchantment Parade weekends sharing the custom adobe parade home built by Matt Pacheco, and a couple of other open houses at Diamond Tail. We hope that you were able to visit and enjoy the gorgeous views, clean air, and the tour. Over 1300 people came, and many of you left wonderful comments on the Parade home – ‘Breath-taking’, ‘very nice layout and design’, ‘extra island in the kitchen adds so much more space, love the pizza oven and backsplash at the range’, ‘beautiful woodwork (doors) throughout’, and ‘nice open layout’. The casita also received rave reviews for being the ‘perfect size and great proximity to the house’ and ‘beyond compare’. Thank you for coming!

Last Weekend for NM Parade of Homes!

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

124 Diamond Tail Rd. has been full of interested visitors over the last few weekends! The winner of Best Bathroom in its parade grouping, the home is full of delightful and carefully crafted details that create a sense of unified warmth and calm throughout. Guests have been happy to pass the time gazing out at the magnificent and never-to-be-disturbed view, resting by one of the outdoor fireplaces, or exploring the developed designs at every turn. An authentic adobe, environmentally sound, and absolutely gorgeous, this home is worth touring. We hope you can stop by for the final days of New Mexico’s Homes of Enchantment Parade next weekend (October 23, 24, and 25).
