Our place is in close proximity to art and culture, and near great restaurants. The Balloon Fiesta park is only 4 miles away. Balloons pass by year round. Skiing, golfing, biking, and hiking, are all close by. You can catch a train to Santa Fe only a mile away.
You’ll love my place because of the old world charm, the light, the neighborhood, and the outdoor space. My home is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids), and crated furry friends (pets).
Our place has thick adobe walls. The original house was built in the 1940s. Rooms were added as needed, in true New Mexican style. The house has really been updated with modern amenities, but we've tried to preserve its charm. We have a very relaxing patio, with a nice BBQ grill. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, and is very user friendly.
You can access all two acres of our property. The only area that is off limits, without prior notification, is the storage/casita structure in back. You have all access to the house, front yard, and patio. You can walk back to the orchard, or even stroll around in the pastures.
Interaction with guests
We have a property management team that can answer questions and meet you if there are any problems. The owner is accessible by email, and can also answer questions.
The original neighborhoods and settlements in New Mexico all occurred near sources of water, where food could be grown. That is the type of area our house is located in. It is lush and green. This is something that contrasts much of the desert landscape, and adds a true beauty that artists Ansel Adams and Georgia O'keffee captured.
We are very close to I-25 and Paseo del Norte (near Journal Center). Downtown Albuquerque and the airport are about a 15-20 min drive. Santa Fe is about 45 min to the north. The RailRunner commuter rail is a mile from the house, so that is also an option to Santa Fe (the plaza) or downtown Albuquerque.
There are plenty of parking spaces on the property.
Also, there are extensive bike trails in the area, including one along the Rio Grande. Everything is very accessible from our location.
We have artwork from a local photographer on walls throughout the house. It adds a special ambiance to the house. The artwork may be purchased as well!
