This luxurious, private retreat is located in the Sandia Mountain foothills, yet is only a 20 minute drive to downtown Albuquerque. The 4000 square foot adobe house has both southwest charm and modern appeal and amenities. The kitchen has 2 kiva fireplaces, granite counter tops, an oversize Viking double-oven range, sub-zero refrigerator, and is furnished with everything needed to prepare a gourmet meal.
The 5 bedrooms are beautifully furnished, 2 have fireplaces, and all include premium bedding and fine linens. The charming living room has a high end entertainment center with a surround sound stereo system, a fireplace, wet bar, and windows overlooking the beautiful oaks and the city lights beyond. The house has 5 distinctive adobe fireplaces, brick floors, and 17 skylights. The lovely yard features a garden with pond and waterfall cascading through the boulders. From the huge outdoor deck off the kitchen the stunning view spans the horizon, overlooking the city of Albuquerque, Mount Taylor, the distant mesas, and the luminescent, constantly changing, New Mexico sky.
This spectacular property is located on 2 acres and borders the ten thousand acre Sandia Mountain Wilderness area on 2 sides. Hiking trails are located out the back door that can lead you along the face of the mountain to the Sandia Peak Tramway, or all the way to the top of the mountain along the La Luz Trail. A short 5 minute walk takes you to one of the Sandia mountain's beautiful watersheds, with a seasonal rushing stream and waterfalls.
