43 Camino Barranca is a fantastic home with a comfortable Southwestern flair! Wide front steps lead us to the front door. The three car garage is topped with the master suite. The covered master deck faces the Sandia Mountain view!


Here we are just inside the entry way (looking back toward the door). The living room is on the left past the carved post, a coat closet is in the center, a powder room is the next door to the right. The upper level we see on the right is the master suite (small doors are under-the-stairs storage).


As we turn and look at the living room, we see an exposed adobe wall on the right and a tall (13 ft) kiva fireplace in the middle. The entertainment center was built for this home and is a beautiful piece of furniture. The tall, bright windows to the right look out on the Sandia Mountains!

living view

Here is the Mountain view!

living to kitchen

From the living room, we can look toward the kitchen on the right, the entry on the far left and the stairs to the master suite (up) and family room (down) in the center. Notice the inset nicho in the center right ready to display your favorite art!


The kitchen is bright and shiny with new granite counters, new stainless steel appliances and a new gas cooktop. The wide counter on the left can also provide seated space for eating or chatting with the cook! The dining room is just to the right of this photo.

kitchen bar

We are looking at the kitchen from the dining room! Lots of saltillo tile in this home. Another carved post (like in the entry) topped with a curvy corbel that supports the beam. Angled willow-sticks provide accent on the cabinet base. Southwestern style at its best!


Turning to look at the dining room from the corner of the kitchen, we see glass panels that look out onto the back patio---the center one is a door.

master stairs

Pivoting back toward the entry, we see the front door behind the half wall on the left and the stairway leading to the master suite on the right. Just out of view on the right is a stairway down to the family room.

master bed

Here is the master bedroom. The windows/doors on the left lead to the front deck. The doorway leads to the master bathroom and just out of view on the right is another door to the west deck and tall windows above the bed.

master view

The view from the front deck shows the graceful slope of the Sandia Mountains. This deck would be a terrific place for your morning's first sip of coffee or tea!

master bath

The master bathroom has a jetted tub with another terrific view. To the right is a glass front shower with bright Mexican tile accents. Out of view on the right is a separate toilet room and a deep walk-in closet.

master bath 2

The double sinks have lots of storage and are brightly lit with lamps above the mirrors and a skylight.

master bath view

The view across the juniper dotted hills is relaxing even before you step into the water!

west deck

The master bedroom has a second balcony/deck that looks out toward the west---wide open spaces!

bedroom wing

The hallway for the second, third, and fourth bedrooms comes off the dining room. The half wall to the right separates the living room from the dining room on the left. The hallway has several steps up to a stylish double door---a nice way to separate the public space of the home from the private space.


The second, third and fourth bedrooms are roomy and have nice closet spaces. All bedrooms are carpeted.


The bathroom in this part of the home connects directly to one of the bedrooms and also opens out onto the hall. Double sinks here, too!


The hall bath has willow-branch accented storage and Mexican tile accents on the tub.


The family room has its own fireplace and bathroom and is located down a half-flight of stairs next to the stairs up to the master suite.

family 2

The garage is accessed off the family room (door on left). There is also an exterior door leading to the west of the house (on the right). This room is large enough to be an active space or a get-away from the rest of the activities in the home. Built-in cabinets are just outside the bathroom door.

family bath

The family room bathroom is complete with a shower. This family room/office space has much to offer!

back of house

The back of the house has a covered patio (hookup for a gas grill is on the right). These doors come from the dining room. Let the party move from kitchen to dining to outdoors!

The home is in the La Mesa subdivision and has comfortable covenants to assure neighborhood standards. The home is an easy drive about 1.5 miles from Highway 165 on paved roads.

Heat is radiant floor heat provided by a natural gas boiler. The cooling is three, energy efficient evaporative coolers. Community water is supplied by a the La Mesa Water Cooperative.
