Stan and I both grew up in Albuquerque, and except for 6 years that we lived in California, we've lived in New Mexico. We live in our house part of the time, and downtown Albuquerque the rest of the time so we like it to be neat and clean. We keep many of our personal items in the house to be used while we're here and for the enjoyment of our guests. We keep up the maintenance on it, and have a beautiful array of live plants both inside and out in the yard. We are situated on an acre of land with a fence around the property, which gives it a very private feel. The Corrales area is located in a farming community, yet outside the village is everything from the big box stores; Home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, to the Cottonwood Mall, the Outback, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, and Il Vicino restaurants - less than 4 miles away. There are also grocery stores like Sprouts Market and Albertson's close by. On the main street, Corrales Blvd., are local restaurants and specialty and antique shops. We have the best of both worlds at our doorstep.
We love the Corrales area because it feels very rural, yet outside of the village 10 minutes away are the largest mall, all the big box stores, restaurants, and antique stores at your doorstep.
We love to sit out on the deck in the evening and watch the lights come on. The view is spectacular and it never ceases to amaze us. We love to watch the birds and other animals as they visit and drink from the water in our pond.
