                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About: I work in Corporate & Foundation Relations at the UNM Foundation. My husband is the editor of a local Arts & Entertainment magazine. I am a UNM alum and he is a Notre Dame alum. We live a mile away from this rental.

                  Why Albuquerque:
                  This is a very special property. It's so close to the university, Kirtland, Sandia Labs, the airport, Old Town, and Nob Hill and uniquely situated on a double lot. Mike did a total overhaul in renovations including the landscape architecture and interior remodel.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home is so welcoming and warm. It's very relaxing to come home and sit near the pond & fireplace, listening to the waterfall. The location is blocks from the heartbeat of the historic Route 66 district that we love so much. We love the local artistic shops in the neighborhood and being able to walk out the front door without having to get in the car every time we want to socialize or shop. My favorite features of this home (all from my husband's remodel) are the archways & rounded doorways, the many heat/AC zones for comfort, and that there is french door access to the yard from every room in the house.
