Property description

Romantic, rustic hideaway in a true 'oasis in the desert'. Los Terrones Adobe Casitas is located on historic Guadalupe Trail in the Village of Los Ranchos. Authentic adobe construction with exposed vigas (beams) and brick floors throughout, a huge picture window on the east side offers plenty of morning light and views out to the wildflower meadow.

The larger bedroom has a queen-size memory foam bed, desk, nightstand. The second bedroom has 2 twin bunk beds, a nightstand, and wardrobe. There is a rollaway bed for an extra guest, and a crib that can be set up for infants. The small kitchen is comfortable and completely equipped. The bathroom has a shower and authentic Talavera hand-painted sink. Authentic southwest decor and old world charm prevail throughout. Please be aware that our casita was built in the 1870s, and as a result, the doorframes are lower than those in modern constructions. On the west side of the property is a private, fenced yard with table, chairs, and a gas grill surrounded by trees and bordering Guadalupe Trail.

This casita is located on 6.5 acres of North Valley landscape, canopied by huge 100 year old cottonwood trees in a semi-rural environment called Los Terrones, in the Village of Los Ranchos. Peaceful and quiet yet conveniently close to the freeway, this property provides easy access to all parts of Albuquerque and surrounding areas. Perfectly situated for balloonists, the Balloon Fiesta Park is only 5 minutes to the northeast. We are only 15 minutes from the airport, 1 mile to the Railrunner train stop, and 45 minutes by car to Santa Fe. Old Town Albuquerque and the Aquarium/ Bio park are just a short drive south down Rio Grande Blvd. Bike paths, a health food store and the “antique mile” along 4th Street are within walking distance, and it's a short drive to Casa Rondena Winery and large shopping malls across the Rio Grande.

Please contact Ryan or Jan for more information or inquiries.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1985

About: We are a family of native New Mexicans with deep roots in the Rio Grande Valley.

Why Alamedan Valley, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
Casita Chueca (crooked house) is situated on a lovely compound in Albuquerque's North Valley. It is a piece of paradise, a semi-rural setting hidden within a metropolitan area which makes it close to nature but also close to all the conveniences of the city.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the easy access to all parts of Albuquerque and New Mexico while enjoying the tranquil, green, natural environment and historic ambiance. The trip to Santa Fe, which we enjoy visiting often, is very short, whether by car or the Railrunner train.
