Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: The owners, Kim and Wayne, moved to Albuquerque for graduate school and fell in love with the southwest. After spending three years living in Oaxaca, Mexico, the couple decided to build their first home to raise their two boys. You'll see custom features heavily influenced by their time in Mexico throughout the home. Their oldest son is studying at UNM. Wayne and Kim completed their doctoral degrees at UNM and their first professional jobs required them to leave the state. Currently, Wayne resides in Research Triangle Park near Raleigh, NC and Kim is a university professor in Kentucky.

Why the Owner Chose Encanto Village Hoa, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
This house is perfectly situated with easy access to I-40. The owners invested in this part of town because they enjoyed the appeal of living in the southwestern quadrant of Albuquerque. It's close to Old Town and there were a lot of nearby attractions for children including the world-class zoo, the aquarium and biopark, the Children's Museum, and the Museum of Natural History. There are also some fantastic New Mexican restaurants nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Because we built the home using a custom builder, we were able to add some special features. From the moment you enter the hand-carved front gate in the courtyard to the carved posts on the pergola on the back patio, you will notice the special details of this house. All of the furnishings have a unique history and many were made by Mexican artisans. In the fall, the smell of roasted green chile fills the air and the home is perfectly situated to enjoy the sights of the Sandia Mountains. Don't be surpised to see a hot air balloon fly directly over the house.
