About the owner: We moved to NM in 1970 and found it to be truly 'enchanting.' The weather, scenery and culture of this part of the country can't be beat. Our property is located far enough out of town to be beautiful, quiet & private, but only minutes away from all the advantages that cities have to offer. We look forward to your visit. Jake & Robyn
Why the Owner Chose Placitas, NM, USA:
We love the area, and it is close to friends and our work. This community is one of the best & most desirable places to live in NM.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Drive in any direction from Placitas and the area changes so dramatically that you will feel you have traveled to another country. Santa Fe is the art capital of the southwest, and yet is only the tip of the cultural iceberg in NM. There are 6 Indian Pueblos & many historical sites nearby, and great hiking & biking right outside your door. The house sits in a high canyon valley overlooking the Santa Ana & San Felipe Pueblo lands, with the Jemez mountains & Cabezon to the west. Wild horses often wander down the slopes, and they may surprise you on your hikes. World Class Golf at the Tamaya Resort is 15 minutes away, and Paako is just over the mountain. Take a ride on the longest tram in the world to the top of the Sandia (means 'watermelon' in Spanish) Mountain Range and watch the lights of Albuquerque come on following a magnificent sunset. There is so much to do and see you will want to come back often. And of course, don't forget the largest International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in the world through the first two weekends of October. Let us point you in the right direction, whatever your tastes may be. Bienvenidos! Welcome to New Mexico!
