              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: I am a landlord, an architect/designer, an artist. I love to travel. I was a virtual vagabond in my younger years, so I know how important a nice place is, as well as a good location. I usually travel simply and inexpensively, and I love B & B's! Some of my favorite stays have been at a B & B. I look for the unusual, quirky and 'off the beaten path' places to stay. My favorite destinations usually involve the ocean so I can swim or body surf. I love the arts, clean lines and simplicity. I enjoy doing mosaics, painting, building and working with clay. I also enjoy gardening. I am a hands on type of person. If I am a guest, I am curious, responsible and mind my own business. If I am hosting you, I will meet you at the door with the keys and be just a few minutes away if you need anything. I will help you out with what ever you need or anything you need to know about staying in Albuquerque. There is plenty to see in this area. My motto: Live & Let Live.

              Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
              The location of this property in Nob Hill is just the best. Easy access to everything, eclectic neighborhood near the university, close to shopping and all one needs to enjoy a visit to the Land of Enchantment. The home is comfortable and renovated while maintaining the characteristics of the 1940's Vintage home it was built as. Parks and cafes abound and transportation or walking is an easy option if you come w/out wheels.
