Owner info

About the owner: 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 they have come to share love, family, the gift of friends and the celebrating of important achievements in one's life and/or to have a relaxed, supportive environment to focus on a deeper understanding and the resolving of important questions and issues.

Why the Owner 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
