|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
The home's spacious, 2100 sq. ft., and open interior expands through the many large windows revealing vistas of the mountain ranges, mesas, and Rio Grande valley. Enjoy the quiet morning sunrises to evening sunsets from inside the house or outside on the patios. The front entrance patio faces the Sandia Mountains and the 50 ft-back patio, the mesas, Rio Grande valley and more mountains. From inside, every window has a million dollar view. Serenity, comfort, and romance best describe this home in the foothills.
In all, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, living room, kitchen, and two car garage. One guest bedroom can double as an office.
This Santa Fe style home offers a master bedroom with a kiva fireplace and viga and latilla ceilings. Wake up and open the shades to view the garden and Sandia Mountains. The elegant master bathroom marble tile surrounds the walls, Jacuzzi, and large mirror reflecting the Mountains.
Nature is just off the back patio. On this two-acre lot, you may see rabbits, chipmunks, coyotes, and a variety of birds.
Because of the cacti and critters, this property is more suitable to children 10 and older. However, we welcome children of all ages.
Night skies are vibrant here. Stars galore! Bring your telescope, binoculars, and camera.
Friday night wine tasting at the local store and gourmet dining next door, at the Bistro, are a must and only five minutes away.
Albuquerque is only 20 minutes away and Santa Fe, 40 minutes. Beautiful drives in both directions, but why not take the train? Ticket to Santa Fe is less than $10 round trip. Train station is only 10 minutes away.
Come to see the grandeur of these vistas!

This home was the perfect bachelor pad until Dave and I married. We honeymooned in this mountain home for five years before renovating and moving into the house next door. We enjoyed entertaining dinner guests with our sunset grilling, on the patio, and dining. Star gazing and watching the wild life and birds offered a constant change in daily life. Eating breakfast and dinner on the back patio was a must, just to be a part of nature and to take in the vistas and fresh mountain air. Now it is your turn to experience the freshness and naturalness of the mountains.
Darlene Dean purchased this house in 1999
Dave purchased this property because of the amazing views, the design flow of the floor plan, and easy access to the main highway and interstate highway.
I have missed the NM light and I am reminded again why the painters flock here. The house was awesome! Quintessential upscale Santa Fe charm, great hiking right out the front door, easy drive to either Santa Fe or Albuquerque and views views views! Thank you so much to Darlene and family for making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We will return.
We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with our family in your beautiful home. Loved watching the sun come up over the valley. Thank you for your warm hospitality and the delicious cupcakes.
