Property description

Charming historic cast stone home cottage nestled in the middle of a neighborhood full of beautiful restored historic homes. This cozy home was once the original carriage house to one of the beautiful restored homes that is know as the “Spy House” because of atomic bomb drawings being sold by David Greenglass, the brother of the infamous Ethel Rosenburg, to a soviet spy. The “Spy House” is also a bed and breakfast where you will be more than welcome to have your breakfast at an additional cost of $10/per person when the B & B schedule permits. It is also within walking distance of many great restaurants.

There is one bedroom with a king-size bed that is next to a large living area that has a daybed that can pull out to an additional king-size bed or two twin beds.

The dining area is in the living area with an antique table that can be used just as a desk or pulls out to easily accommodate four people.

The private fenced backyard wraps around the house and has a bench and small table should you want to sit outside for diner or just to relax.

You are an easy 5-10 minutes from Convention Center, UNM, Hospitals, Old Town, Museums, Zoo, Airport, and even a shorter distance to great shopping, restaurants or even the movie theater. You are also within walking distance to the train/bus stations that can take you to many other great attractions in the Albuquerque area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Steve and Kara Grant, the owners and innkeepers of the Downtown Historic Bed and Breakfasts of Albuquerque, have been residents of Albuquerque since 1999. When they first moved here, they settled in a typical home with their 3 children. But two years after their fourth little girl was born, they came across a unique house with an amazing story behind it in the downtown area of Albuquerque. The house was badly in need of TLC, but Kara fell in love with the house and Steve soon warmed up to it as well. They spent 6 months making the house livable and moved into it Christmas Eve of 2004. This house was the “Spy House” (ATOMIC BOMB SECRETS TRADED HERE), which they made their home for 5 years. The other building on the same property is the 'Carriage House', which is the one we currently use for VRBO business.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
We love the historic neighborhood area that and the GREAT location is a plus too!! Located in Downtown Albuquerque, close to just about everything - Hospitals, University of New Mexico, Old Town, Nob Hill, Airport, 5 blocks to the Rail Runner Train station that goes all the way to Santa Fe!

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!! WE ARE THE PERFECT LOCATION TO REACH JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN ALBUQUERQUE!
