This 5000 SF adobe home sits on two acres adjacent to the Corrales Bosque Preserve. As you drive down the lane to the property you will immediately notice a beautiful landscape of cottonwood trees. As you continue onto the property you will be greeted by a field of white flowers, named Yerba Mansa (in the summer), along with vegetable and flower gardens. The heated pool is open from May until October and is perfectly situated near shade trees so that you will be able to relax out of the sun. Regardless of the season, you will enjoy the many places to sit and take nature in.
The home is made from adobe (see the video below). The architecture is a pueblo revival style, a uniquely American architecture style. It retains heat in the winter and cool temperatures in the summer. The lovely brick floors are set on sand, a step up from the historical dirt base. Soft, rounded walls can be seen throughout. The home is luxurious, with New Mexican vigas, latillas, portals, and plaster walls in the old tradition. There is just something special about sleeping in a home constructed from adobe.
