About Anthony Allen

Anthony and Lydia Allen live with friends and family close by in the Sandia mountains in an off grid home overlooking Albuquerque. They have started many alternative schools, love community, sustainable living and enjoy the totally whacked out, joyous celebration of being alive. They are both currently licensed massage therapists and find so much beauty in diving into the endless river of gratitude. Anthony and Lydia are excited to prepare Parqhouse for each group, knowing many come to reunite with family and friends and to celebrate important passages and/or to have a relaxed, supportive environment to focus on a deeper understanding and the resolving of important questions and issues.

Why Anthony Allen chose Albuquerque

When Lydia and Anthony first walked into Parqhouse, they saw great potential for large, light filled rooms to bring together people for the main purpose of enjoyment and connecting. With the private terraces and the beautiful park across the street it was clear this could become a very special place by opening it up to its inherent beauty. Walls were opened to fluidly connect the large social rooms and French doors were put in to engage the outdoors. Anthony and Lydia love to do much entertaining at Parqhouse when it's available.

What makes this house unique

Parqhouse offers bicycles, riding toys for children, tennis racquets to enjoy the recently refinished tennis courts across the street & croquet, horse shoes, badminton, volley ball, football, kick ball, frisbee and picnic equipment to maximize your enjoyment of Montgomery Park. You will enjoy the diversity of activities the park hosts, from the Knights and Ladies from The Society of Creative Anachronisms enjoying life from another era on Sunday mornings to cheerleading practices, yoga and tai chi groups to dozens of people chasing a ball the size of plane around the fields. The public pool in summer harkens to an earlier, more innocent time with grass surrounding the pools for sunbathing and an inviting, large kiddie pool for safe explorations of the waters.

Maryland Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing. There were 10 ladies who came for the ABQ Balloon Festival and to enjoy ABQ. The pictures fail to capture the spirit and beauty of the house. We loved the layout of the back and side yards. I was able to use one of the bikes to go biking on a nearby trail. The bedrooms were fantastic. There were enough rooms (4 plus the outdoor patio areas) beside the bedrooms to allow everyone to have private space.

Anthony and his wife are gracious and friendly hosts. The showed us around the house and I was able to contact them if there was an issue or concern.

One morning we awoke to see balloons going by from a pre-festival balloon event at the nearby elementary school. Another afternoon there was a beautiful rainbow outside.

Some of the ladies enjoyed early walks around the park and neighborhood.

We thoroughly enjoyed the extended kitchen isle. We had our daily happy hour celebrations in the large dining room with enough room for everyone. We also appreciated the location of the house. We were close to shopping, restaurants, movies and sightseeing.

My friends and I will mostly want to stay here again in the future.

Perfect gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

For our birthday party/family gathering, this property was beyond wonderful. Excellent spaces indoors and outdoors for everyone to be together or split into smaller groups. Quiet bedrooms, comfortable beds for all. Fantastic outdoor grilling/food prep area. All good!

Room To Roam!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfectly suited for our family reunion for our 50th Anniversary. Rooms for every combination of numbers...for those who wanted private talks; for those who grouped in 3s and 4s; for the whole group.

Plus, everything we needed was provided from kitchen utencils to dishes, lovely towels to a drawer full of shampoos and gels for those who forgot theirs. Our great granddaughter enjoyed the toys, the books, and the folding table and chairs.

The house was a lovely backdrop for our 4 generations pictures and group pictures. The wine cooler chilled our celebratory champaign to perfection. And the refrigerator held all our left-over food from the Frontier, Sadie's, Monroes, El Modello, and the Owl Cafe.

We felt at home immediately with the interesting decor, a multitude of lighting options, and many places to relax, chat, and eat. Could not have asked for more.

The jacuzzi welcomed us after a hard day of doing nothing. The owners were gracious, informative, and welcoming! Don't miss an opportunity to stay here. Lots of restsurants very close by. The property is easy to access also.

It was ready for us prior to the promised check in time. We had a family reunion with 30

People and no one was on top of another!

Note: there are plenty of kitchen items, spices and coffee etc. check the cabinets before you shop!

Anthony Allen and his wife Lydia are perfect hosts. We can't wait to come back again!

TERRIFIC PLACE FOR A GATHERING

  • 5 of 5

My company had its annual retreat at Parqhouse. The environment was very conducive to informal meetings as well as larger, structured meetings. The house is well furnished, beds are extremely comfortable. Kitchen is well furnished. Can feed 40 people at one time! Anthony, the owner, is extremely accommodating and is a lovely fellow also.

The only problem we had was the internet connection. It couldn't support the video conferencing we needed to do. I spoke with Anthony about this because we would like to meet at Parqhouse next year, but only if the internet service improved. He will look into it and, I believe, it will be upgraded to meet our needs.

Parqhouse is more than I could have hoped for.
