Owner info

Year Purchased: 1905

About the owner: I am a psychoanalyst living and practicing in San Francisco, CA. I raised my children in New Mexico and have loved the southwest ever since.

Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
I need to feed my soul with some access to the magic of New Mexico. The woman who sold this house to me did so because my grandparents settled in New Mexico before it became a state in 1912.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a very unique property. It is in town, at the end of a street - no cars - no traffic. Near Old Town, museums, restaurants, Betty's massage, 1 hour from Santa Fe, and is incredibly quiet and peaceful. Evenings and mornings are especially beautiful.
