Albuquerque house description

Warm inviting family friendly 3 bedroom 2 bath home located in the Sandia Mountains on the Turquoise Trail just minutes from Albuquerque and just south of Santa Fe. Our home has a two-car garage and is on a beautiful quiet wooded half acre lot. The Turquoise Trail is bursting with galleries, arts, shops, restaurants, and you can find the unique town of Madrid, featured in the movie 'Wild Hogs', just 25 miles north of Cedar Crest and half way to Santa Fe. There is a great grocery store minutes away called the Triangle Grocery. You can enjoy eating out or eating in, which ever you desire. Most businesses are individually owned and operated. Banks and ATM's are also available for your convenience. If you want fast food, you may need to drive in to Albquerque only 10 minutes from home.

If you golf, you will love Paa-ko Ridge Golf Club. Take a scenic drive up Crest Road to the top of Sandia Mountain at 10,700 feet overlooking Albuquerque or you can ride the longest tram in the world to the top of the mountain from Albuquerque and eat at the High Finance Restaurant. Conveniently located minutes from Albuquerque and only 49 miles from Santa Fe, you will not run out of things to do.

Keywords: Mountain retreat, or sometimes called a cabin nestled in the trees with quiet privacy and conveniences of a home.

              Located on the Turquoise Trail on Hwy N-14 you can take a senic drive to Santa Fe. Be sure to stop at Madrid an old mining town full of unique shops, galleries and the location of the movie 'Wild Hogs'. We have galleries and restaurants within 1 mile of the house.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1999

              About the owner: I bought my mountain home just east of Albuquerque in 1999. It has been my home for a number of years but with my life moving me elsewhere, I could not part with this home that means so much to me.

              Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
              I decided to rent out my home as a vacation home so I could have the pleasure of sharing it with others and yet come back for visits myself. There is so much to do and see and is so convenient to Albuquerque. I love hearing the comments of people who have stayed in my home and they seem to love and appreciate the quiet retreat of the mountains, yet the diversity of being so close to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. There is so much history and fun in our area.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I enjoy the quiet mornings and the awesome sunrises. In the summer you can sit on the front porch an watch the sun creep over the mountains. At night you can see the stars without obstruction of city lights. You will have all the conveniences of shops, galleries, a great grocery store, video rentals, great restaurants and just 5 minutes for the house. I also enjoy the BioPark, the museums, the hiking areas, golf at Paa-ko, the Sandia Tram, the fun town of Madrid, and all the unique areas that New Mexico and it's heritage have to offer at the various pueblos and State Parks.
