Laura and Richard have been managing residential and commercial property for 15 years but only recently finished renovation of this home for vacation rental. In the summer of 2009 they are opening a bed and breakfast in their three story Victorian home in downtown Albuquerque called the “Bella Roma”. Laura and Richard share the Bella Roma with her mother, Elaine, a James Joyce scholar who sponsors reading groups on Wednesday evenings and their dog Arlo, who loves visitors. In addition, Laura and Richard own and manage Smart Use, LLC, a water conservation consulting company. They try to make every property as green as possible with Energy Star appliances, efficient heating and cooling, recycling and use of green household products.
This house was built in the 1920's and when we found it in very poor condition. Depsite this, we could see the original beauty and charm, and have renovated it with the orignal hardwood floors, beautiful wood finishing around the windows and door frames and the built-in cabinets in the living and dining rooms. Almost everything else is new - plumbing, electrical, stucco, roof, heating/cooling, appliances and 2nd floor master suite. The location also appealed because it's close to downtown, Old Town, and so many things to do.
We live only a mile or so away and love the neighborhood near downtown and Old Town. Lots of good restaurants, near one of the largest stadium seating theatres in town, close to the zoo, museums, university, and all the sports complexes. It's also close to the airport. We love old houses and old neighborhoods and like restoring them to keep the old charm but add the modern features and conveniences.
