GORGEOUS ADOBE, SPECTACULAR SETTING/W VIEWS!!

Albuquerque House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This luxurious, private retreat is located in the Sandia Mountain foothills, yet is only a 20 minute drive to downtown Albuquerque. The 4000 square foot adobe house has both southwest charm and modern appeal and amenities. The kitchen has 2 kiva fireplaces, granite counter tops, an oversize Viking double-oven range, sub-zero refrigerator, and is furnished with everything needed to prepare a gourmet meal.

The 5 bedrooms are beautifully furnished, 2 have fireplaces, and all include premium bedding and fine linens. The charming living room has a 56'Sony Wega HD entertainment center with Mirage surround sound stereo system and speakers throughout the house. The house has 5 distinctive adobe fireplaces, brick floors, and 17 skylights. The lovely yard features a garden with pond and waterfall cascading through the boulders. From the huge outdoor deck off the kitchen the stunning view spans the horizon, overlooking the city of Albuquerque, Mount Taylor, the distant mesas, and the luminescent, constantly changing, New Mexico sky.

This spectacular property is located on 2 acres and borders the ten thousand acre Sandia Mountain Wilderness area on 2 sides. Hiking trails are located out the back door that can lead you along the face of the mountain to the Sandia Peak Tramway, or all the way to the top of the mountain along the La Luz Trail. A short 5 minute walk takes you to one of the Sandia mountain's beautiful watersheds, with a seasonal rushing stream and waterfalls.

This house is both a peaceful retreat, and a convenient base for exploring both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The closest restaurant is 5 minutes away, more restaurants and markets are 10 minutes away, the mall is 20 minutes, downtown Albuquerque is 20 minutes and Santa Fe is a 50 minute drive north.

An ideal location for couple getaways, retreats, family reunions, and special celebrations, this property is truly a magical, unique, elegant and serene resort in the wilderness of Albuquerque.

Keywords: Adobe home, Sandia Mountain, hiking, private, views, secluded, retreats, family reunions, celebrations.

Three things I love about New Mexico: the glorious sky, the hot green chile, and the unique character of buildings made out of mud (adobe).

I love the hiking in the Sandia Mountains, and from this house the trails begin out the back door.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

My family lived in the house from 2005 to 2008. It has the ambiance and serenity of living in the mountains but you are very close to shopping, dining and entertainment. The views of the city, mountains and desert mesas beyond are spectacular. This all-adobe home was built by an artist/builder with very little disturbance to the surrounding landscape. It is set within huge boulders and ancient oak trees. The top floor of the 3 level home is built into the mountain side, so from the windows you are eye level with the ground and have an inspiring view of the natural landscape. The mountain wilderness surrounds you, yet shopping and restaurants are only 10 minutes away.

Watching the sky from the deck can be mesmerizing, the hummingbirds always put on a great show, you might spot a bobcat from a window (don't worry, they're scared of you), enjoy a good book by one of the 5 kiva fireplaces, watch the snow build a winter wonderland all around you, hike to a waterfall or to the top of Sandia Mountain out the back door, drive 10 minutes to a great restaurant, enjoy a good movie or listen to your favorite music with the amazing entertainment system, spend time preparing a meal together in the spacious, comfortable, beautiful, gourmet kitchen, sleep in and enjoy the deep stillness of the mountains surrounding you. Forget all the sightseeing plans, you won't want to leave!

MOUNTAIN MAGIC

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Mountain Magic during the Balloon Festival for an extended family retreat. Everyone in the family, from eight to seventy, loved the house. The accommodations, location and view were superb. We had high expectation from the pictures in the listing and our expectations were exceeded.

There were rooms for the family to gather: a large living room with a extensive media center, a gourmet kitchen and dining area, and a massive deck with a view of the entire city. (A full view of the Balloon Festival and fireworks was a bonus.) The numerous bedrooms were well appointed and not only gave everyone a place to sleep but a place to retreat for some quiet time. The eight year olds took over the downstairs den for a hideaway.

The home is located in a secluded neighborhood and is one of the highest homes in Albuquerque. This provides quiet and panoramic views of the nighttime sky and city below. At the same time a short drive down the hill connects you to major city streets and a freeway. It is an easy drive to anywhere in the city and Santa Fe. It is within 15 minuets of the Balloon Festival and the tram. Since the property is bordered by the national forest, many family members enjoyed the hiking trail out the back door. The owner left binders and countless pamphlets of attractions and restaurants which we found useful.

If there are any regrets that any of us have – our stay was too short.

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

The house was wonderful; the views, breathtaking. Our stay was entirely satisfactory. We had a major bump towards the end of our stay but the owners were very accomodating. I would rate the overall experience as excellent!

PERFECT FAMILY REUNION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
My brother, his wife and three sons, my sister, my husband and I LOVED staying together in this lovely house for our family reunion. Plenty of space to be together, and plenty of space for privacy too. The house is so comfortable, spacious, tasteful, well-equipped... high quality everywhere, from the Viking range with built in griddle (perfect for pancakes!) to the fluffy towels to the festive dinner plates. We also found the location to be very convenient (realizing of course that ABQ is a big, spread-out southwestern town, so everything was a drive). Eight thumbs-up from this crowd!

I WOULD GO AGAIN IN A HEARTBEAT!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely, comfortable, well-equipped house in a beautiful setting. It worked well for the number of people we had. The house is very well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils and pots and plenty of towels and things. There are lots of "public" spaces for people to do what they wanted to do. One of my favorite activities was "ballon watching" early each morning on the deck with my coffee. Of course I was joined by others. I heartily recommend binoculars as a must bring as the views are wonderful both day and night. Our group was spread over all age groups (11 from age 73 to 7) and all enjoyed the experience!

WOW

  • 5 of 5
"Wow" perfectly describes our group's experience at this property. Owners were very pleasant and accommodating. Property is well maintained, beds are comfortable and what a vista from the deck! Can get anywhere you need to go easily from here. Absolutely is the number one option for us when we return next year.
