Tierra Monte & Evergreen Hills Two pocket neighborhoods on the edge of the City

This is a great time of year to explore, especially now, as personal space is so important. And what a great way to get away from it all, by never leaving the MetroABQ...

Unless you are a hiker or mountain biker, you may not have heard of the two small neighborhoods nestled high up in the Foothills of the Sandia Mountains. Tierra Monte & Evergreen Hills are both unique & exclusive: the real estate there can be expensive, the views are extraordinary, & getting there & back can be half the fun.


The top image is a scene from a residence high up the mountain face in Tierra Monte, gazing south along the eastern foothills. The property, recently for sale, backs up to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness--huge boulders sit above the home just beyond the property line. The image just above is from the same house but facing due west; the rocks on the right side are the beginnings of the massive Shield rock feature that extends across the Pueblo of Sandia up to the Village of Placitas.


Where are these Foothills pocket communities?
