Albuquerque is centrally located in New Mexico and offers countless museums, pueblos and galleries. New Mexico is steeped in thousands of years of Indian culture and the past 500 years, a blended Indian American, Hispanic and Western culture. The vistas and blue skies that unfold before you are incredible. A perfect place to use as a base for dozens of day trips throughout New Mexico. Several art, food, and wine festivals are held throughout the year both in Albuquerque and Santa Fe as well as various small town festivals such as the September Chili Festival in Hatch. Every October Albuquerque is the center for the International Balloon Fiesta where hundreds of balloonists take off everyday - the sky filled with balloons of every shape and color. Half a mile from the house is Rt. 66 (Central Ave) that includes Nob Hill (vintage 50s shops and plenty of restaurants), University of Mexico that takes you downtown Albuquerque and the museums of nearby Old Town Plaza. Favorite destination - 70 miles West to Acoma Pueblo - the Sky City. Santa Fe is less than an hour from Albuquerque unless you take the Turquiose Trail road through the Sandias - a beautiful drive that takes you through Madrid - an artsy community made famous by the movie Wild Hogs. New Mexico has 13 National Parks such as Chaco Canyon, Los Alamos, Carlsbad Caverns and El Morro. In addition, NM offers skiing, mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, hiking, birding, biking (over 400 miles in Albuquerque), and countless other sports. Come spend a week or two in the Land of Enchantment.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We are both federal retirees who left the busy Washington DC area for the quiet beauty of the Land of Enchantment. We bought this as a second home and kept extending our stays here until we decided to move here permanently four years ago. We found a slightly larger home in the same great community and decided to keep this home as a furnished rental.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
We loved this home since it backs up to a common area with all the amenities steps away. Although it is a gated community, you could walk to a 24 hour grocery and shopping area. It is half a mile from the Interstate so you can be anywhere in the city in less than 10 minutes. Balloon Fiesta Park is about 15 minutes away. It is a safe, quiet neighborhood.and only 5 minutes away from Kirtland AFB.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We loved the house since it affords privacy - both inside the home and outside. It is considered a patio home - ie. single home but you cannot see your neighbor's home. It has a light, open, airy feel to it with an open living/dining room, kitchen area yet privacy in the bedrooms. We live in the same community because of its closeness to all.
