Enjoy this beautiful, spacious two-floor home with three bedrooms and two and a half baths located just off Tramway Blvd. across the street from the Sandia foothills, a short walk to miles of hiking and biking trails, including Elena Gallegos Open Space.
Our home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood at the base of the Sandia Mountains. Our comfortable living room features a gas fireplace and flat-screen TV with digital cable and HBO. The dining room easily seats six with our extendable table featuring a hidden leaf and an additional two-seat bench. The fully-stocked and recently renovated kitchen includes a breakfast nook with mountain views. Just off the living room is a quiet study, perfect for reading and catching up on email via the high-speed wireless internet.
The large master suite is located on the first floor with a king-sized bed, flat-screen TV, large walk-in closet, and spacious bathroom with a soaker tub and separate, private shower area.
Two additional, comfy bedrooms are located upstairs, one with a queen-sized bed, the other with two twin beds, both with ample closet space. Another full bathroom is located upstairs for your guests' convenience.
Our home also features a full-sized washer and dryer as well as a two-car garage.
The nearest Starbucks, Albertsons grocery store and CVS Pharmacy are only 1 mile away (3-minute drive). Close to Trader Joe's, shopping, casual and upscale dining.
Just seven minutes away is the Sandia Peak Tramway, the world's longest tramway. Ride the tram to the top of Sandia Mountains to enjoy beautiful views of the city of Albuquerque below, access to Sandia Peak Ski Resort in the winter and mountain biking in the summer.
Sandia Resort & Casino is only 10 minutes away, featuring an award-winning golf course open to the public, spa services, restaurants and concerts throughout the year.
Take a quick drive via I-25 and I-40 to historic Old Town where you can shop the Plaza for authentic turquoise and silver jewelry handcrafted by the First Nations vendors selling their wares. Get your fill of red or green chile (or ask for Christmas for both!) at many local New Mexican restaurants before heading over to Museum Row, featuring Albuquerque Museum of Art & History, New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, and Explora Science Museum for kids of all ages!
Our house is conveniently located near I-25 to head north for a short drive up to Santa Fe for a day trip. Or for a more leisurely and scenic drive up to Santa Fe, simply head south on Tramway Blvd. and around the Sandia Mountains to the Turquoise Trail.
And when Balloon Fiesta rolls around in early October, our home is conveniently located to both South and North entrances to Balloon Fiesta Park. This is a must-see event with balloonists coming from all over the world for this one-of-a-kind experience. Throughout the rest of the year, head to Balloon Fiesta Park to visit the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum to learn all about the "Hot Air Ballooning Capital of the World".
