The home is 2100 square feet on one floor and sleeps four. Due East are closeup/uninterrupted panoramas of the Sandia Mountains (at 10,637 feet). Due West are 70-mile panoramic sunset views. The stucco house has an open floor plan, saltillo tile floors, high ceilings, tons of windows, mountain views, and three different outdoor seating areas on the walled front and back patios. Kitchen: LG refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, stainless double sink, Frigidaire gas stove/oven, microwave, Silestone counters, and (otherwise) fully equipped.

Whole area can be closed off to create a private suite feel. Outdoor Space: Three separate seating areas, to flow with the moving sun/shade. Outdoor dining. Back patio with two fountains and a hammock, facing east and the mountain. Front patio with a fountain facing west. Plenty of greenery to counteract the shades of brown desert beyond the walls :-) Garage parking is possible but not guaranteed. Otherwise there's a private driveway.

Interaction with guests
I'm often traveling and not here to greet you. In that case I will send instructions for gaining entry. Because I've written the Lonely Planet Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos guidebook, I'm happy to offer personal concierge tips.

About the neighbourhood
It's a super safe/quiet residential neighborhood, with a lovely park across the street. Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are an easy 3 to 4 mile drive. Hiking in the foothills is a 5-minute drive or a 15-minute walk away. The tram to the top of Sandia Peak is a 5-minute drive away.
How to get there
From I-25, it's five miles straight up Paseo (with restaurants). Only 45 minutes to Santa Fe; 20 minutes to the university area and/or downtown.
