Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am a landlord, an architect/designer, an artist. I love to travel. I was a virtual vagabond in my younger years, so I know how important a nice place is, as well as a good location. I usually travel simply and inexpensively, and I love B & B's! Some of my favorite stays have been at a B & B. I look for the unusual, quirky and 'off the beaten path' places to stay. My favorite destinations usually involve the ocean so I can swim or body surf. I love the arts, clean lines and simplicity. I enjoy doing mosaics, painting, building and working with clay. I also enjoy gardening. I am a hands on type of person. If I am a guest, I am curious, responsible and mind my own business. If I am hosting you, I will meet you at the door with the keys and be just a few minutes away if you need anything. I will help you out with what ever you need or anything you need to know about staying in Albuquerque. There is plenty to see in this area. My motto: Live & Let Live.

Why the Owner Chose Nob Hill, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
The location of this property in Nob Hill is just the best. Easy access to everything, eclectic neighborhood near the university, close to shopping and all one needs to enjoy a visit to the Land of Enchantment. The home is comfortable and renovated while maintaining the characteristics of the 1940's Vintage home it was built as. Parks and cafes abound and transportation or walking is an easy option if you come w/out wheels.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, Location, Location!!! My Nob Hill Vintage 2 Bedroom is located so close to everything that most conveniences are within a short walk. Easy access to and from, by car, bus, train or plane is minutes away. The airport, train station, buses and the freeway are all reachable within a few minutes to 10 minutes. Restaurants, Shopping, Grocery stores, Pharmacies, Barber Shop, Dry Cleaners and Florist are a hop and a skip from the front door. 2 Parks are just a block or so away and an elementary school is a few blocks down the road with a nice playground. Museums and Oldtown are all a bus ride away or about 10 minutes. Apart from a great location, the house is very comfortable with a sweet patio and garden area which is nicely shaded in the afternoon and has morning sun. The house is 1940's vintage with modern and eclectic furnishings. The Owner is around for questions and any assistance needed during your stay. Enjoy the Land of Enchantment from an easy and comfortable location in the Heart of Nob Hill!!
