Lots of updates in this hard-to-find 3BR that backs up to 15-plus acre Protected Open Space, that affords unblockable views of Sandias, Manzanos, downtown skyline and the Rio Grande. In addition to the mountain views and quiet solitude of this unique setting that's just a short walk to the Bosque and Rio Grande river hike/bike trails, you'll love the tile throughout the kitchen, hallway, and living room and the cozy gas fireplace for those cool evenings. Outdoor living is enhanced by the spacious covered patio with two ceiling fans and access from the living area and the MBR. There's a large ramada for outdoor parties or a perfect place for a hot tub, too-very private in every way. Big MBR with walk-in shower, & there's a jet tub in the hall bath. Granite counters in the country kitchen.
