Some of my Current Favorite Homes for Sale –
I have to admit I have some favorite homes that I love showing here in Aldea. There are a few gems that really stand out from all the rest. What makes these home more interesting is the design, layout, finishes & their site orientation.
After viewing many of the homes everywhere, I often find awkward floor plans, rooms that have no relationship to the views & outside spaces, and uninteresting architecture, covered up by expensive finishes that try to hide the lack of design. I am opinionated for sure & I have high expectations, especially after living with a talented husband who designs homes & is a community planner. John has opened my eyes to good design & I have lived in award winning architecturally interesting homes for now over 24 years.
So here are some of my favorite homes for sale in Aldea at this time.
This slide show of my Favorite Aldea homes is only viewable for 30 days as of July 1:

“Lovely custom home with high ceilings, vigas and hard trowel finishes. Spacious cooks kitchen and wetbar open onto a central courtyard private patios backing onto greenspace. Short sale opportunity – hurry! As-is.”
What I love about this house is the single level, the private inner courtyard and upscale finishes in an architectural designed home. There are private outdoor spaces off each bedroom, each with views of the arroyo to the south. The finishes are very upscale and the home is in very good condition. There is a more formal living room off the open kitchen and a less formal TV/Media room that is off the hallway towards the bedrooms. The two bedrooms share a bathroom, while the master bedroom has a large comfortable bathroom with soaking tub and large walk-in shower. The views are minimal, yet very special. The house feels like an oasis. Sitting in the inner courtyard in all seasons would be a real delight.

“Beautifully maintained and exquisitely landscaped home with two master suites, one upstairs and one down stairs along with the third bedroom. Many great upscale amenities. Probably the most unique town home in Aldea. Model home condition!! Great views to Sandia, Jemez Mountains and Los Alamos night lights. End unit with oversize lot that provides nice privacy and separation from neighbors as well as additional off street parking for guests. Two courtyards, lovely portal off breakfast nook. Added amenities after original construction total $70,000. Need a guest house or studio there is room to build on this lot.”
What I love about this home, is that it lives more like a single family home than a townhome. The views to the south from the living area and the master suite are captivating. The home lives outside as well as inside. One can easily imagine eating breakfast, lunch & dinner outside in the private yard. The main level master suite would make an excellent office as it has direct access off the entrance enclosed courtyard. The upstairs master suite has its own private deck complete with sunscreens and 180° views to the mountains. The finishes are upscale, well maintained and the property is in “move in condition” to be sure. This is not a distressed property and has been lovingly maintained.

“Enter into a charming old world courtyard planted with aspens trees and privets. This desirable one level house has beautiful beams and corbels in the living room, a cook’s kitchen with a center island, three fireplaces, radiant heat/evaporative cooling and a double car garage with direct entry. The master suite has good separation with a spacious bath and walk – in closet. There are two additional bedrooms and one would make a great office as it has it’s own access directly off the courtyard. The elegant house has a three-sided, covered portal on the south side for entertaining or relaxing. This light and bright house is well designed has a great flow.”
What I like about this home is the openness and the views from the the living & dining area. The 3rd bedroom, which could make a great office as it has its own entrance from the courtyard, has a private courtyard views. The entrance courtyard is very special, well landscaped. The yard to the south is fenced in and offers great views to the south & west. The house is architecturally designed and has great finishes and is in great condition. The single level makes it easy to live in.

“Truly Impressive Fun Property at an amazing price, appraised by Santa Fe County at $1,019,000. The finest expression of Casa de Vistas many finely crafted homes. This home won more awards for design and materials than any of his others. House and casita are built around a Mediterranean walled courtyard with 10′ water fountain. Courtyard is an oasis of green with mature trees and bushes, a real showplace. It’s like living in San Miguel Allende with 270 views from rear roof deck, the highest in all of Aldea. Greenbelt in front and behind house, premium lot. Two master suites. Central air energy star rated installed in 2012 w/heat pump to back up radiant heat. All doors are solid handcarved mahogany, corbels are massive solid carved mahogany, 14 foot handcarved stone fireplace in livingroom, 3 fireplaces woodburning with gas lighters. Light fixtures are hand forged iron with hand blown glass. Wrought iron work is a duplicate of Christopher Columbus son’s house in the Dominican Republic.”
What I love about the house…. what isn’t to love? The inner courtyard is the best in all of Aldea, the fixtures and finishes are excellent, the master suite has great views, the guest suite woks beautifully as a separate office from the home yet shares the courtyard beautifully. The home is stunning, the best design in Aldea, in my opinion. The builder, Casa de Vistas, created the best homes in all of Aldea, from patio homes, to townhouses and single family homes, all of them with his touch of elegance & old world style. His houses stand out among the rest because his old world finishes, architectural details and a deep understanding of the hacienda lifestyle. To walk through this home is a special rare opportunity to experience what Santa Fe lifestyle is all about.
