Property description

Charming old adobe in the Village of Los Ranchos in Albuquerque’s North Valley on five acres of farmland with direct access to endless hiking/jogging/biking trails along the tree-filled bosque of the Rio Grande and easy drives to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness and to Old Town area of Albuquerque. It's an hour drive to the Santa Fe Plaza, or take the RailRunner train from the Los Ranchos station less than 2 miles from the house.

The walls of the present kitchen and dining room constituted one of the original houses on what is now Rio Grande Blvd. The present house has a layout typical of old New Mexico, where one room was added at a time. It is 1300 square feet, was completely renovated in 2004, and is fully furnished.

The semi-rural character and privacy make this an ideal and relaxing rental spot for anyone wanting to vacation in the Albuquerque area or for persons needing temporary furnished housing for work or study, visit to family, or getting ready for a move to the area.

There is one small bedroom (queen bed) with a generous adjacent sitting room with cable HD TV, DVD player with extensive video and reading libraries. The large living room has beamed ceiling, gas fireplace and a second TV.

The dining area is a direct extension off the kitchen and has its own woodburning kiva fireplace with a unique copper mantel. There's a separate office with broadband internet connection and WiFi.

A bricked patio with a huge cottonwood, fruit trees, lawns, gardens, and 2 eating areas are enclosed with adobe walls. Great sunsets spread across 3-acre alfalfa field which is on this property to the west.

Daily, weekly, and monthly rates are available. Nightly rates decrease after the first seven days,

PROSPECTIVE RENTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO CALL THE OWNER ABOUT RENTAL RATES BECAUSE THE AUTOMATIC CALCULATION MAY OVERSTATE THE ESTIMATED CHARGES, NOT FULLY ALLOWING FOR MUCH LOWERED NIGHTLY RATES AFTER THE INITIAL WEEK, OR THAT THE EXTRA PERSON RATE MAY NOT APPLY TO CHILDREN.

THE HOUSE IS COMFORTABLE AND MORE THAN AMPLE FOR TWO PERSONS. ADDITIONAL PERSONS CAN BE ACCOMMODATED, BUT DIRECT DISCUSSION ABOUT LIMITATIONS FOR SLEEPING, PRIVACY, ETC. ARE ESSENTIAL PRIOR TO BOOKNG.

Normally a booking for less than 2 weeks is not accepted more than 2 months in advance unless it fills a gap in the calendar or fits continuously with another existing booking .

No smoking, (Smoking permitted outside the house.) Sorry, pets are discouraged.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: We are a semi-retired physician/faculty at the University of NM and wife who has been a weaver and champion of the fiber arts. We have lived and raised our family here for 45 years on 2-acres including pasture with sheep and goats immediately next door to this adobe rental. As owners, we directly manage the rental property.

Why the Owner Chose Guadalupe Woods, Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, NM, USA:
This is one of the original adobe houses built after the levees were constructed and controlled flooding along the Rio Grande in the 1930s. The five acres create a special rural oasis in an area that has recently become more developed with residential homes. It has been important to us to preserve this property and this special house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Access directly off the property to endless hiking/jogging/biking trails along the tree-filled bosque of the Rio Grande; easy 10 mile drive to trailheads in the Sandia Mountain Wilderness. Located in the North Valley, the property is just three miles to Balloon Fiesta Park, an easy five and a half miles directly to Albuquerque's Old Town and museums, six miles to Biopark and zoo, ten miles to the University area and Nob Hill. The Los Ranchos Saturday farmers' market is only a mile away. Nearby bridges provide ready access to the west side of the river and Rio Rancho. Interstates running north/south (I-25) and east/west (I-40) are easily reached, making this an excellent jumping off point for exploring the entire state.
