This beautiful home minutes north of Albuquerque offers solitude in the beautiful high desert of New Mexico. The 3.5-acre property sits on a ridge with 360-degree views of five mountain ranges, mesas, gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, and city lights. It is ideally situated between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, with easy access to New Mexico's top day-trip attractions. Soak in the hot tub under the stars, or hike and mountain bike on our endless high desert trails.

The main house features an open floor plan ideal for relaxing or entertaining, with an open living/dining area and a spectacular contemporary kitchen designed for a chef. The open, bright main house is a good size for a couple or family, or as a serene retreat for an individual. The large dining table seats 12. Huge windows face the beautiful Sandia Mountains, offering the best views in New Mexico: big sky, sunrises and sunsets, city lights, and distant lightning storms. The spacious master suite includes a cozy king bed, a large smart TV, and an amazing tiled double shower with a large Japanese-style step-down tiled tub with views, offering a romantic unwind for two. Just outside the master suite through a sliding glass door is a covered patio and fenced side yard with a two-person outdoor hot tub, where you can soak under the stars or enjoy your morning coffee with expansive high desert views. The 500-sq-ft. guest house is connected to the main house by a large open central porch with views and patio table that seats 8. The guest house features one additional bedroom with a comfy queen bed and smart TV, a contemporary bathroom with a tiled walk-in shower, and a nice sized office with a work desk, smart TV, and sofa for guest use and plenty of sunlight. The two bedrooms sleep a total of four people. An extra-large couch in the main house offers a relaxing place to gather. Fire up the wood burning stove on a chilly night; piñon firewood is included.

Unde vei fi

Rio Rancho, New Mexico, Statele Unite ale Americii

This is a remote and beautiful location with few neighbors and lots of trails for relaxing walks and mountain biking. The first thing you’ll notice are the amazing views of the Rio Grande Valley and five mountain ranges, plus a number of classic New Mexico mesas. At night, you’ll get a full view of the twinkling lights of Albuquerque through the front windows. We suggest leaving the windows open at night for a camping-like experience. Listen for the coyotes at night, and in March-April and September-October, we often hear dens of coyote pups yipping for their mothers.

For the history buff, this is a historic location, very near the spot where in 1540 the Spanish conquistador Coronado and more than 1,000 men crested the ridge of the Rio Grande Valley from the west, scouted the native villages, and eventually commandeered one for the winter, setting off a violent century between the Spanish and Pueblo Indians. You can visit the nearby Coronado Historic Site for a more complete telling of the local history, plus a look at a lot of artifacts from the time period and from both cultures.


Things to do nearby: From the entrance to Interstate 25 (8 minutes away), you are just 15 minutes from the International Balloon Park and north Albuquerque. Consider a visit to the shops in Old Town Albuquerque (historic to artsy) or Nob Hill (artsy to alternative), enjoy the Breaking Bad tour, ride the Sandia Peak Tramway for great views or a high altitude hike, or take a drive around the Sandia Mountains for a hike or picnic. We enjoy horseback riding and, in the spring and early summer, floating (by canoe, kayak, raft, or tube) the surprisingly beautiful Rio Grande River from Coronado State Park to the Alameda Bridge in Albuquerque (self-guided or find a float company online). There are a couple of better golf courses nearby, including Cochiti and Santa Ana. The "Sandia Man Cave" is a short hike and is popular with kids (approx. 25 minutes away), located in the mountains on the far side of the town of Placitas.

There are a number of great day trips from here, as well. The Jemez Mountains are our favorite excursion, less than an hour away, where you can find great hiking, fly fishing streams, lake fishing at Fenton Lake, and natural hot springs (some of which are treated as "clothing optional"). The town of Jemez Springs includes a charming artist community, cafes, hot spring mineral baths, and a legendary bar and restaurant called Los Ojos. The Valles Caldera National Preserve is worth the additional drive, and for a satisfying day trip complete the loop through Los Alamos and Santa Fe.

The shortest route to Santa Fe, however, is from the entrance to Interstate 25 just 8 minutes to the east of us through the town of Bernalillo. From there, you are 45 minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza, with its art galleries, shopping, and world-class restaurants. If you have kids of any age, or even if you don't, we highly recommend Santa Fe’s fantastical Meow Wolf (it defies description). Ten Thousand Waves has mineral spas and a great restaurant for the adults. A little further into the Sangre de Cristos Mountains are some of the largest aspen stands in the world, along with great hiking. In the winter, Ski Santa Fe is probably the best, closest skiing destination. (Sandia Peak Ski Area is closer, but ski seasons there tend to be short or nonexistent these days.)

For an experience, the one-hour trip to Santa Fe aboard the New Mexico Rail Runner, a double-decker train through some of the most remote and scenic parts of New Mexico, is must-do for visitors. The nearest Rail Runner station is in Bernalillo at I-25, an 8-minute drive from our home, with free parking. From the Rail Runner's northern-most stop, it's a short walk to and from the Santa Fe Plaza.

The Taos area, an additional hour’s drive north from Santa Fe, offers history, art galleries, and the famed Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs. Ski Taos is a desination for skiers from around the world and is widely known as featuring a high level of difficulty.

In addition to being near the north-south Interstate 25, our home also sits along Highway 550, the gateway to northwestern New Mexico. Less than two hours away is the legendary Chaco Canyon ruins (once a regional commerce center for Native American tribes for a thousand miles), and a bit further but within day-trip range are many Native American Pueblos, Shiprock and the Four Corners region, Mesa Verde and Durango Colorado (a longish trek for a single day), and a couple of narrow-gauge steam trains. World-renowned trophy trout fly fishing waters are available on the San Juan River just below Navajo Dam (a three-hour drive, get up early for the choice fishing holes, guide recommended for first timers).

If you want to stay close to home, we’re lucky to be on the outer edges of civilization. Our immediate area offers great walking and mountain biking trails (nothing too steep, but good exercise in a beautiful setting).

You’re welcome to cook in our kitchen, and if you see ripe vegetables in the garden, help yourself.

Despite the remote location, we're also very near civilization, with several excellent restaurants, brewpubs, grocery stores, and fast food less than 10 minutes away. Nearby restaurants we like: Blades Bistro (in Placitas, our all-time favorite for special occasions, fine food, wine, cocktails, and select beer, excellent but not pretentious, frequent live music), Bosque Brewing (great local microbrews, pub food, stunning setting), The Range Café (American standards with a New Mexico twist, occasional live music), The Freight House (pub for foodies, great microbrews and fantastic creative cuisine, sports on TV, board games for the kids), Abuelita’s (Mexican food), Filiberto’s (Mexican fast food), Corn Maiden (high-end steakhouse), and Prairie Star (American fine dining). If you’re not from around here, New Mexicans swear by Dion’s Pizza (try the green chile ranch dressing with your pizza) and Blake’s Lotaburger (one location in Bernalillo) is widely regarded as having the best breakfast burritos anywhere, hands down. (We agree, but to judge that yourself, also try the breakfast burritos at top contenders Bob's Burgers and Golden Pride, both with locations in Albuquerque. It’s a matter of local contention.)

The Santa Ana Star Casino is five minutes away, with gambling, entertainment, restaurants including a buffet, and bowling alley.

The New Mexico Soccer Tournament Complex is five minutes away.

The best part: We share the environment with a variety of wildlife. We routinely see and hear coyotes, owls, hawks and other birds of prey, bats, roadrunners, snakes (occasionally, a rattlesnake), jack rabbits, mice, a wide assortment of lizards, hummingbirds, an occasional (and beautiful) tarantula, many beautiful and some ugly insects, and more. This year we have captured on camera a bobcat and a pair of raccoons on the property. We relish these sightings and the high desert ecology they represent, and we hope you will too.

Caretaker and handyman are typically 10 minutes away in case you have questions or difficulties. During the spring and summer caretaker will stop by a few times a week to water the garden and grounds when needed. This is a must to keep our yard and garden alive. They also take the trash to the "curb" on Sunday evening and then back in on Monday afternoon or evening. Our caretaker is our co-host and will not violate your privacy, but is also happy to answer any questions or address any issues.
