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.
