Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are health professionals (dentist/PA) who live in a larger, multi-level home in Sandia Heights North. It is like coming home to a 'Resort' every night. We love this area so much, that we wanted to secure additional property our family could enjoy. As military medical officers in Navy Reserve and Air National Guard, we have had privilege to serve and travel, and are OEF/OIF veterans. Phil also Vietnam veteran (B-52 and T-28 instructor pilot).
Why the Owner Chose Tramway Terrace, NM, USA:
When this very unique property came up for sale, we jumped on opportunity (literally day before Phil deployed for Afghanistan). We wanted a single level, smaller, and cozier home for our special needs sister who resides with us (if ever needed in the future). But with smaller properties, it is so rare to have these million dollar views! It is a corner property, surrounded by natural and mature landscaping on 3 sides. Purchased from original owners who maintained and updated property well. We have enjoyed customizing it with original and hand-made Southwest furniture and artwork.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sandia Heights epitomizes all the benefits of living in New Mexico. High altitude, pure air, stargazing, city views & mountain views, and high desert natural landscaping (evergreens and cacti). Extraodinary views of Sandia Mountain and The Tram from the large picture window inside. And panoramic views outside from the cozy, but unobstructed courtyard, that extends into extensive 'open space' and park areas. Kitchen is well stocked with every gadget/appliance for gourmet cooks, grill-masters, or group entertaining at Holidays (turkey roaster, crockpot, blender, toaster oven, food processor, teakettle). Drip, French press and Keuring coffee makers. Loose teamaker. Mixologists have everything they need to prepare and serve cocktails in appropriate glasses. For those needing to 'take care of business' during their stay, there is corner workstation with writing desk and comfy/adjustable executive chair. High speed internet with either wireless or fixed connections; and printer/copier.
