This home (pictured to the right and below) is a large 1 bedroom, 1 bath home located on two acres in the Las Huertas Creek valley of Placitas.

The 1,225 square foot home has a large front deck and many large windows that take advantage of the wonderful mesa views looking west. The bedroom has an efficient wood-burning fireplace in an artful adobe setting. Blue ceramic tile and French doors to the deck make this a cheerful, inviting room. A walk-in closet leads to the bathroom. The spacious living room has south facing windows and a funky adobe fireplace with banco. The kitchen is open to the living room and features hand painted tile and plenty of cabinets. The bathroom has a full tub, colorful tile and a laundry nook with energy efficient washer and dryer. Solar and propane heat. Refrigerated air window unit.

The Las Huertas Creek runs through the property and there are many large trees along the creek---a great place to connect with nature and relax.

A separate storage shed is included with space for bicycles and other sports gear. A tall 32 ft. x 12 ft. carport protects vehicles from the weather. There is a fenced area (48 inch tall fence) that could be used for dogs.

Rent is $1050 per month on a 12 month lease. Tenant pays all utilities (electric, propane). There is a shared well. Up to three pets allowed with approval and additional pet deposit. Damage deposit is $1050, $35 application fee (per adult), and credit check/background check required. No smoking inside home.

The kitchen features large, south-facing windows for solar heat in the winter and a hand crafted tile backsplash.


There is nice window above the sink and exposed adobe accents.


The living room fireplace is a fascinating adobe sculpture with built-in banco seating! Notice the wonderful beams and exposed adobe. Ceiling fan and light complete the scene.


The extra-large bathroom has colorful tile, wood accents, a full tub, and has been newly updated with a vanity/sink and new faucet.


The ceilings throughout the home are beautiful wood with impressive vigas. Creative exposed adobe adds charm.

outside arch

This interesting arch leads to steps up to the deck.

west off deck

Looking west off the deck---unobstructed view to Cabezon Peak! You have two acres of solitude.


Floorplan of the home. Interesting archways between the rooms. Lots of windows on the south wall in living room, dining area, and kitchen.


Cottonwoods by the creek provide a shady spot for relaxing or watching the birds and dragonflies (and sometimes wild horses).


Water in the high desert of New Mexico is always a treat! The creek is fed by nearby springs and any summer rainfall.
