About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This luxurious, private retreat is located in the Sandia Mountain foothills, yet is only a 20 minute drive to downtown Albuquerque. The 4000 square foot adobe house has both southwest charm and modern appeal and amenities. The kitchen has 2 kiva fireplaces, granite counter tops, an oversize Viking double-oven range, sub-zero refrigerator, and is furnished with everything needed to prepare a gourmet meal.
The 5 bedrooms are beautifully furnished, 2 have fireplaces, and all include premium bedding and fine linens. The charming living room has a 56'Sony Wega HD entertainment center with Mirage surround sound stereo system and speakers throughout the house. The house has 5 distinctive adobe fireplaces, brick floors, and 17 skylights. The lovely yard features a garden with pond and waterfall cascading through the boulders. From the huge outdoor deck off the kitchen the stunning view spans the horizon, overlooking the city of Albuquerque, Mount Taylor, the distant mesas, and the luminescent, constantly changing, New Mexico sky.
This spectacular property is located on 2 acres and borders the ten thousand acre Sandia Mountain Wilderness area on 2 sides. Hiking trails are located out the back door that can lead you along the face of the mountain to the Sandia Peak Tramway, or all the way to the top of the mountain along the La Luz Trail. A short 5 minute walk takes you to one of the Sandia mountain's beautiful watersheds, with a seasonal rushing stream and waterfalls.
This house is both a peaceful retreat, and a convenient base for exploring both Albuquerque and Santa Fe. The closest restaurant is 5 minutes away, more restaurants and markets are 10 minutes away, the mall is 20 minutes, downtown Albuquerque is 20 minutes and Santa Fe is a 50 minute drive north.
An ideal location for couple getaways, retreats, family reunions, and special celebrations, this property is truly a magical, unique, elegant and serene resort in the wilderness of Albuquerque.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Three things I love about New Mexico: the glorious sky, the hot green chile, and the unique character of buildings made out of mud (adobe). I love the hiking in the Sandia Mountains, and from this house the trails begin out the back door.
Why the Owner Chose Tierra Monte, NM, USA:
My family lived in the house from 2005 to 2008. It has the ambiance and serenity of living in the mountains but you are very close to shopping, dining and entertainment. The views of the city, mountains and desert mesas beyond are spectacular. This all-adobe home was built by an artist/builder with very little disturbance to the surrounding landscape. It is set within huge boulders and ancient oak trees. The top floor of the 3 level home is built into the mountain side, so from the windows you are eye level with the ground and have an inspiring view of the natural landscape. The mountain wilderness surrounds you, yet shopping and restaurants are only 10 minutes away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watching the sky from the deck can be mesmerizing, the hummingbirds always put on a great show, you might spot a bobcat from a window (don't worry, they're scared of you), enjoy a good book by one of the 5 kiva fireplaces, watch the snow build a winter wonderland all around you, hike to a waterfall or to the top of Sandia Mountain out the back door, drive 10 minutes to a great restaurant, enjoy a good movie or listen to your favorite music with the amazing entertainment system, spend time preparing a meal together in the spacious, comfortable, beautiful, gourmet kitchen, sleep in and enjoy the deep stillness of the mountains surrounding you. Forget all the sightseeing plans, you won't want to leave!
