Albuquerque house description

This beautifully furnished adobe home with an open floor plan, delightful entertaining spaces, cozy screened-in porch and outdoor patios, is a perfect spot to enjoy the tranquillity of Southwest living.

Located in a country setting on one of the North Valley’s most desired lanes, walking and bike trails along the Rio Grande River are a short stroll from the house.

The spacious, adobe home is graced with brick floors, wood ceilings, 3 kiva fireplaces, a baby grand piano, and fine art and antiques throughout.

There are 3 super-sized, comfortable bedrooms, with crisp linens, windows looking out to the New Mexico sky, and 2 full baths. The master bedroom has a king bed, an antique writing desk, and comfortable seating around a cozy, kiva fireplace. The other 2 bedrooms each have a queen bed, and twins with hand carved and painted headboards from the old La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe.

The charming, light-filled kitchen has hand painted wood cabinets, high-end appliances, a table for 4, and is fully stocked with everything needed to prepare gourmet meals. A French door leads to the patio, which has a gas grill, chiminea fireplace, and seating overlooking the spacious private grass yard with trees and gardens.

The open dining room has a country farm table for 8, kiva fireplace with comfortable seating area, baby grand piano, and French doors leading out to the lovely, furnished screened-in porch.

The living room is open to the dining room, has soaring wood beamed ceilings, comfortable upholstered furniture, and is filled with interesting folk art and collectables, antiques and good books. There is cable TV, and wireless internet to keep connected with the outside world.

This property is truly country living in the middle of town. The house sits on .75 acres with trees and gardens, bordering an open field frequented by birds and wildlife. You are surrounded by the Rio Grande River Valley open space, and miles and miles of nature paths are right outside the door. The area is on the fly way for migratory birds, so seasonal flocks of ducks, geese, herons and cranes abound. Yet the Cottonwood mall, movies, shopping, restaurants, tennis courts, public pools, the Village of Corrales, Balloon Fiesta Park, and Sandia Casino are all less than 15 minutes away. Down town, UNM, the airport, and the Sandia Mountain tram and hiking trails are all less than 20 minutes, and Santa Fe is a quick 50-minute drive north.

Come stay in this beautiful home and enjoy a beautiful experience of the unique ambiance of New Mexico.
