WELCOME TO CASA SANDIA
For a week or for a month, you’ll find a stylish retreat at our house, Casa Sandia, located in the Torrey Pines Section of Tanoan West, a gated community in North East Albuquerque near the Sandia mountains.
Centrally located in Albuquerque, with views of the Sandia Mountains from front windows and the master bedroom balcony, Casa Sandia provides serenity, comfort, and convenience for its guests.
This 2500 square foot home has all of the charm characteristic of southwestern adobe architecture, with stucco walls, saltillo tiled floors, and curved walls and niches. The garage faces the street and the entrance sidewalk winds around the side of the house through a tourqouise gate to the main entrance. The curving walls, abundant windows and skylights fill the house with southwestern sunlight and blue skies.
The generous living and dining areas are furnished for comfort and style. The gas fireplace warms cool evenings, and the table and chairs, handmade in Corrales, provide a place for gatherings of friends and family for dining or board games. A CD player and a TV with a DVD player, allow for family music or movie time. Board games and books beckon as a means of passing the time. The adjacent library provides a sanctuary for reading or a quiet nap on the comfortable couch.
The kitchen, adjacent to the living and dining areas, has been stocked with all the cooking implements — small appliances, cookware, pots, dishes and glasses — that are required by someone who really likes to cook. Your guests can sidle up to the counter on a stool and visit while dinner is being prepared.
There is a generously sized laundry room with washer, dryer, ironing board and iron, as well as a full bath on the first floor for your convenience.
Look for the paw prints of coyotes in the Saltillo tile in the hallway, laundry room, and kitchen floors, made while the tiles were drying outdoors in Mexico.
A curving staircase rises from the center hall to an open second floor hall, flooded with light from a skylight and large picture window, which lead you to the master bed and bath, two additional guest rooms and a full bath.
The master bedroom is on the second floor, with its own queen size bed, walk out balcony with a stunning, close-up view of the Sandia mountains. The attached, light filled large master bathroom boasts a skylight and large window. There is a shower, Jacuzzi tub (with a view of the Sandia mountains), double sink and walk-in closet. No complaint of cramped quarters can be lodged here. Greet the morning with views of the Sandia Mountains from the master bedroom balcony.
Two additional guests rooms and a full bath also are on the second floor. There is a king bed and TV in one guest room which also has its own walk out balcony overlooking the garden. The other guest room has two single beds and a view of the garden.
The patio and garden surrounded by a stucco wall with grapevines, provide a cool resting place in private surroundings, away from the cares of the day. A gas grill is provided for your enjoyment; humming birds visit for your entertainment.
Casa Sandia is about 15 minutes from the airport; from Old Town Albuquerque with its charming shops and restaurants; from Central Avenue (Old Route 66 and the Nob Hill area) with the University of New Mexico, shops and many restaurants. The Sandia Mountains and the Tramway to the top is only 5 minutes from the house. Across the street is the open arroyo land of the Albuquerque Academy where hikers and birdwatchers are welcome. Restaurants, shops and stores abound within 5 minutes of the house, including a Whole Foods, Smith's grocery, Starbucks, Einstein Bagel, and Walmart.
We rent by the week, even if you only stay a few days. Even though our calendar may look empty, this does not mean the dates are available, since we do not book our calendar until we have a signed contract, and sometimes we have booked maintenance and repair.
