Romantic, rustic hideaway in a true 'oasis in the desert'. This casita is part of a property on the national historic register. Los Terrones Adobe Casitas is located on historic Guadalupe Trail in the Village of Los Ranchos. Authentic adobe construction with exposed vigas (beams) and brick floors throughout, huge picture windows on the east side which look onto acres of green lawn and mature landscaping where roadrunners and other birds love to linger. Perfect launch site for hot air balloons.
The larger bedroom has a queen-size memory foam bed, desk, nightstand. The second 'Blue Room ' bedroom has a twin bed, nightstand, and wardrobe. There is a rollaway bed for an extra guest, and a crib that can be set up for infants. The small kitchen is comfortable and completely equipped. The bathroom has a shower and authentic Talavera hand-painted sink. Authentic southwest decor and old world charm prevail throughout. Please be aware that our casita was built in the 1870s, and as a result, the doorframes are lower than those in modern constructions. On the west side of the property is a private, fenced yard with table, chairs, and a gas grill surrounded by trees and bordering Guadalupe Trail.
This casita is located on 6.5 acres of green meadows canopied by huge 100 year old cottonwood trees in a semi-rural environment called Los Terrones. Peaceful and quiet yet conveniently close to the freeway, this property provides easy access to all parts of Albuquerque and surrounding areas. Perfectly situated for balloonists, the Balloon Fiesta Park is only 5 minutes to the northeast. We are only 15 minutes from the airport, 1 mile to the Railrunner train stop, and 45 minutes by car to Santa Fe. Old Town Albuquerque and the Aquarium/ Bio park are just a short drive south down Rio Grande Blvd. Bike paths, a health food store and the “antique mile” along 4th Street are within walking distance, and it's a short drive to Casa Rondena Winery and large shopping malls across the Rio Grande.
Please call Jan, Tony, or Tim for more information and extra availability.
As an Air Force brat I grew up all over the world, but my heart always belonged in New Mexico where my grandparents lived. My wife is a native of New Mexico and we both enjoy traveling.
This unique property belonged to my grandparents and I always enjoyed visiting it in my youth. It is a piece of paradise, a semi-rural setting hidden within a metropolitan area which makes it close to nature but also close to all the conveniences of the city.
We love the easy access to all parts of Albuquerque and New Mexico while enjoying the tranquil, green, natural environment and historic ambiance. The trip to Santa Fe, which we enjoy visiting often, is very short, whether by car or the Railrunner train.
Close to historic sites and monuments such as Historic Old Town, Coronado State Monument, and Petroglyph National Monument, Santa Fe is a 45 minute drive or (slightly longer) train ride away.
