Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque: ABQ's Rio Grande valley is steeped in history and beauty. The near North Valley neighborhood is like living in the country while enjoying the advantage of being in the middle of the city. Access to and from the house is exceptional (the airport is only 15 mins away, decent public transit and it's only one hour to Santa Fe by car or 1 1/2 hours by train).
The Unique Benefits at this House: Beautiful walking and biking right out the front door to Open Space and the Rio Grande Nature Center/State Park. There's also a natural foods co-op and the best place for coffee and dessert in the city within walking/biking distance. Enjoy the laid back and historical rural character of the Rio Grande Valley while having all the assets of being in the city.
