About the Property

3 Bedrooms 2 Full Baths, Sunroom Entry, Deck, Adobe Walled Patio And Gardens

Very inviting comfortable home in an established neighborhood right in the heart of Nob Hill with parks, shopping, dining and entertainment within comfortable walking distance. The house is easily rearranged for different office, living, sleeping configurations.
Large laundry room, 2 full bathrooms and a very nice light airy entry with lots of plants; patios and decks extend the living space to the outdoors and make for a great space for entertaining or pets and kids. New Pella windows and lots of insulation create a quiet, comfortable year-round interior feel. There is a beautiful, south-facing bay window in one bedroom that provides great winter sun. The front bedroom has its own walled patio and private entrance. Either of these bedrooms make a great office/work space (desk and almost anything else you might need are available)
Because there are 2 distinct sleeping and/or working areas with a shared living, dining room and kitchen in the middle, this house is ideal for a roommate situation, working from home or a separate area for children.
The owner lives on-site in a studio in the back of the property with access from the alley. He is mostly around and takes care of gardens, assure security and take care of the chickens - EGGS are included in the rent.
The latest additions are: a new Gas Fireplace Insert for a cozy living room
a new dishwasher that is QUIET
heated tile flooring in the back bathroom for warm feet

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I am an Engineer by training and have spent most of my life as a craftsman with a an ecological bent. I have used my creative impulses on remodeling my house over the years. I love creating an environment that feels warm, with plenty of plants, colorful walls, natural light with skylights and windows, decks, adobe walled patio and experimental gardens. I enjoy entertaining: hosting barbecues, dinners, parties,and get togethers. I have shared my home with many roommates and guests over the almost 40 years that I have owned this property. It has been really nice being part of Nob Hill as it has gone from being a sleepy little neighborhood adjacent to University of New Mexico to the entertainment, dining and shopping mecca of Albuquerque. For the past few years I have been trying to work less and travel more and offering my house as a fully furnished vacation rental helps to make this possible . My latest addition is a group of well fed chickens that provide my guests and myself with fresh eggs. I live in a studio in the back of the property, and am often around tinkering on a woodworking project, motorcycles, watering the gardens, landscaping and etc.

Why the Owner Chose Nob Hill, Albuquerque, NM, USA:
I bought this house when I was in college and have loved being a part of a growing Nob Hill scene, walking and bicycling to everything. There are still a handful of residents that were in this neighborhood when I moved in in 78, and the neighborhood has only gotten better because of its proximity to Central Avenues main set of businesses. There is an eclectic and friendly feel and it has been a great place to build lasting friendships. The property itself is on a decent sized lot with established trees that allowed me to build a shop/garage/studio with an entry from the alley.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
By living on the property I am always available to take care for problems or requests my renters may have. I go out of my way to assure that my guests have anything that they need to have an enjoyable, carefree experience; I provide bicycles, eggs, toys, cribs, barbecues, desks, rearrange the house as needed. I can provide a garage bay for a car or some storage. The house is laid out to provide plenty of private spaces so that you can work or have conversations and family and friends can be in other indoor or outdoor spaces enjoying and entertaining. The deck is adjacent to the dining room space and is accessed through double doors which extends the living spaces even more.
