Albuquerque High Desert Home available 8/2019

Due to a temporary academic posting, we're renting out our beautiful home located in the high desert foothills of Albuquerque.

We'd prefer to rent the house fully furnished, but can rent it partially furnished as needed.

~5600 square foot house on 1.134 acre lot
4 bedroom, 5 bath
Freshly updated finished basement
Swimming pool
Two garage bays and a driveway for parking
The house is about 1000 feet higher than downtown Albuquerque, so it's noticeably cooler
Close (~1/3 mile) to open space/National Forest, and wilderness for great running, hiking and biking, and ~1/2 mile to High Desert Park (courts, playground, etc.)
~1 mile from Tramway Blvd. bike trail
Serviced by city water, sewer, trash pickup etc.
Commute is about 25 minutes to UNM's main campus
Efficient evaporative coolers and underfloor radiant heat
High ceilings and great views and natural light
Filtered and softened water
Xeriscaped low maintenance plot (which we'll pay to have kept up) with small garden beds

This is a huge, beautiful house with amazing views of the Sandias in a safe, peaceful neighborhood served by some of the best local schools. It’s near the end of a dead-end road, so in a truly quiet spot. We see wildlife all the time (mule deer, bobcats, roadrunners, etc.).

Ideal renters would be another family who appreciate the tranquility of the house and setting combined with the convenience of being within Albuquerque city limits.

$3500/mo, but we will negotiate for the right renters.

About Me
I'm spouse to a faculty member and am finally pursuing my Ph.D. in Ornithology in New Mexico after living in New Zealand, China, and the U.S. coasts. We're parents of two young boys who keep us more than busy. Our local interests include green chili, exploring the great outdoors, and photography.
