This incredible, truly eclectic estate is the former home of Millicent Rogers, an art collector, fashion icon, and Standard Oil heiress. She was an avid supporter and enthusiast of Southwestern art and jewelry—her family founded the Millicent Rogers Museum, which exhibits Native American, Hispanic, and Euro-American art with an emphasis on northern New Mexico and Taos-specific works—and its influence is strong throughout this one-of-a-kind, nine-bedroom, nearly 10,000 square-foot adobe house in Taos, New Mexico.

It’s nestled on 72 acres of land with views of the Taos Mountain and surrounding landscape, with the dwelling featuring distinctive elements including ceilings constructed with latillas and vigas painted by British artist Dorothy Brett, carved and painted doors, intricately tiled kitchen and bathrooms, wide-plank or otherwise painted wood floors, deep-set windows, fireplaces, a marble waterfall-style bath, and so much more.

The house is built around a courtyard with painted and carved arcades, while a pool, guest cottage, caretaker’s home, facility for horses, and several outbuildings round out the property. Sprawling vistas enclose Turtle Walk, as it’s called, making it a private hamlet that can be yours for a cool $4,500,000.
