Property description

We walked in the front door and were blown away by the gorgeous mountain view! This patio home became our second home, purchased in 2005, for a destination contrasting with our tropical home in Hawaii. Albuquerque is the perfect spot - dry and not too hot and not too cold, and lots of opportunities for the outdoor life we love. The 1,600+ square foot unit has two bedrooms with excellent mattresses, living room, dining room, kitchen, garage and two patios, fully fenced in. The layout is easy: Walk in the front entryway and turn right to go down a hall to the bedrooms. Farthest is the large master bedroom with a large bath and large walk-in closet. Choice of tub or shower, and a separate toilet room. Next, across from the second bathroom, is the guest room with a queen size bed. Moving back toward the living room is the office which has two desk areas, a computer table and Hewlett Packard printer. Choice of wireless or broadband to connect your laptop computer to internet.

The Maytag washer and dryer are tucked in a little alcove before you get back to the living area. The living room has 12 foot ceilings and a set of sliding doors that look up to the Sandia Mountains nearby. The high ceilings, lots of windows, and white carpeting gave the area wonderful brightness. Outside the living room is an east-facing patio to greet the morning. That patio runs the length of the house with greenery and a big beautiful Aspen tree. Outside the dining room is another patio, also fenced, for sunset watching. The fully equipped kitchen is separated from the dining room by a glass brick wall, also adding to the bright atmosphere. Park one car in the garage and a second car just outside. The garage also has a long work bench with assorted essential tools. The house is also equipped with starter supplies of soaps, paper products, and condiments. We just ask that you replace what you use for the next person.

We love the time we spend in our house in Albuquerque, and are happy to share it with you when we are not there.

The neighborhood is very quiet, with the homes separated by fence/walls that provide great privacy.

Easy 25 Minute Drive from Airport on I-25, Paseo Del Norte.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: As retirees, we wanted a new place to explore. Dave retired as a professor psychology at the University of Hawaii, and Abby worked in a creative health program for older adults. The Southwest holds great appeal for us with its wide open spaces, beautiful landscapes, exotic culture, and Indian art. From Albuquerque we explore Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. When we're at home, we hike and bike in and around the Sandia Mountains. We're also serious recreational bird watchers and have found wonderful birding buddies through the Central New Mexican Audubon Society and the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
The Sandia Heights area is both beautiful and practical in that you can quickly get to anywhere in Albuquerque via Tramway, Paseo del Norte, I-40 and I-25. We love that we're really close to everything but feel like we're in the country, away from the bustle. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. Shopping and recreation are close and convenient.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides our explorations, we love to eat and find New Mexican cuisine very much to our liking. Restaurants are 5 or 20 minutes from the house, and in an hour we can sample the great fare of Santa Fe. While our home is very private, we have met compatible neighbors as we walk around the complex and hike and bike nearby. There are several friendly churches nearby as well. A trip up the nearby Albuquerque tram is a great thrill as you can see the entire city, and once there you can hike in the clear mountain air. We love the cool dry air which gives us a change from Hawaii's warm days.
