About Laura Rice
I am a retired healthcare consultant and my husband is a family practice physician. We are avid outdoor enthusiasts and love to camp, rock & ice climb, ski, raft, and hike. We also love the amenities our city has to concerts, growers markets, festivals, great downtown and easy access to the mountains.
Why Laura Rice chose University Heights
Princeton House is a lovely 1933 bungalow that was built for UNM professors during the depression. After being used and abused by students for any years, we decided to renovate this lovely and historic house. It is close to simply everything. It is one block from Central Avenue, the main "drag" in ABQ and on the corner of Princeton and Silver, a bicycle boulevard. Coffee shops, restaurants, shopping abound. Mass transit is on Central. You will see all kinds of people and our special residents, "Harold & Maude", our local in-love Roadrunners. Although we do not live in this lovely house, we did for many months while waiting for our house to be build. We loved the area. It vibrant, fun and full of things to do!
What makes this House unique
We love this house because it still has many of the unique and original details. The built-in book nooks have original glass, the built-in linen closet is adorable. Heck, it's just super cute.

You are very welcome and thanks for staying at Princeton House. Very nice meeting you!
Cute house, great location
The Princeton house fit all of our needs; it was clean, welcoming, and comfortable. We had our 2 dogs with us, and it was great to know that they could safely play outside in the secure courtyard. The kitchen was the perfect space for us to prepare our contributions to our family holiday meal. Thank you Laura, we hope to return to your home again on our next visit!
Great location! Loved the Roadrunners!
The roadrunners are Harold and Maude! So glad you saw them. They are so cute. Also happy you enjoyed Princeton House.
Charming bungalow in desirable area with lovely patio area.
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in July 2018 when we traveled to Albuquerque to deliver a puppy to our daughter and son-in-law. It is a charming historic 2 bedroom bungalow just a few blocks off Central in Nob Hill. The home was comfortable, well stocked, and VERY clean with everything in good repair. Our favorite part was the patio off the front of the home and we enjoyed our breakfast there. It is in a very pedestrian area but has walls in the front that provided privacy from the street traffic. The home was surprisingly quiet. Very well stocked kitchen sans dishwasher. Very nice built-in front porch area for another place to eat or just relax. Nice deep driveway with security lights. I also enjoyed very good communication with the owner. My husband thought the bathroom was tight but it was not a problem for me. There was a heatwave while we were there and during the late afternoon the air conditioning had trouble keeping up but we are used to 70 degrees at home. The home had everything we needed in a great location close to our children and we would stay here again.
Thanks so much, it was such a pleasure to have you. Yeah, the heatwave was especially bad....and unusual. The monsoons have typically started by now and they cool things down so nicely in the afternoon. I look forward to your next visit!
In a great location in Nob Hill. This is a lovely remodeled and updated bungalow home. Spotless. Perfect for a couple or a family of 3. Lots of windows and great light. Had a lovely enclosed sunroom. Laura, the owner, is very attentive and helpful.
Thank you! You guys were a real pleasure.
Fantastic little home.
Beautiful home, great location, and fantastic hostess.
