Albuquerque house description

Charming old adobe in the Village of Los Ranchos in Albuquerque’s North Valley on five acres of farmland with direct access to endless hiking/jogging/biking trails along the tree-filled bosque of the Rio Grande and easy drive to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness. It's an hour drive to the Santa Fe Plaza, or take the RailRunner train from the Los Ranchos station less than 2 miles from the house.

The rental house has a layout typical of old New Mexico, where one room was added at a time. It is 1300 square feet, was completely renovated in 2004, and is fully furnished.

The semi-rural character and privacy make this an ideal and relaxing rental spot for anyone wanting to vacation in the Albuquerque area or for persons needing temporary furnished housing for temporary work or study, visit to family, getting ready for a move to the area.

There is one small bedroom (queen bed) with a generous adjacent sitting room with cable TV, DVD/VHS player with extensive library. The large living room has beamed ceiling, gas fireplace.

The dining area is a direct extension off the kitchen and has its own woodburning kiva fireplace. There's a separate office with broadband internet connection and WiFi.

A bricked patio with a huge cottonwood, fruit trees, lawns, gardens, and 2 eating areas are enclosed with adobe walls, and great sunsets spread across 3-acre alfalfa field on the rental property to the west.

Daily, weekly, and monthly rates available.

Normally bookings for less than 2 weeks are not accepted more than 2 months in advance.

No smoking, (Smoking permitted outside the house.) Sorry, pets are discouraged.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We are a semi-retired physician and wife who have lived for 44 years on 2-acres including pasture with sheep and goats immediately next door to this adobe rental.

                  Why the Owner Chose Albuquerque:
                  This is one of the original houses built after the levees were constructed and controlled flooding along the Rio Grande in the 1930s. The five acres create a special rural oasis in an area that has recently become more developed with residential homes. It has been important to us to preserve this property and this special house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Access directly off the property to endless hiking/jogging/biking trails along the tree-filled bosque of the Rio Grande and easy 10 mile drive to trailheads in the Sandia Mountain Wilderness; only three miles to Balloon Fiesta Park and an easy five and a half miles directly to Old Town and museums and six miles to Biopark and zoo. Just 1 mile to Saturday farmers' market.
