About Albuquerque and New Mexico
“The Land of Enchantment,” as our great state is known, is diverse in so many ways. The varied cultures of Native American, Hispanic, Asian, African-American, and Anglo subsequently provides a plethora of artistry and craftsmanship. Iconic towns like our state capital of Santa Fe, Taos, and Albuquerque are filled with quaint shops, art galleries, jewelry stores, and exceptional boutique restaurants. It’s a great place to explore and immerse yourself in the diversity of varied cultures and activities.
Real estate, too, is quite diverse throughout the state. New Mexico is well known for its unique Southwest Architecture… some may refer to it as Pueblo Style or Adobe, which often shows a flat style roof. Oftentimes, this style of home will include wood accents like Vigas, Latillas, Korbels, and Tongue and Groove. A Kiva style fireplace, Saltillo Tile or Brick Flooring, may also adorn these homes.
Northern New Mexico borders Southern Colorado and shares the Southernmost Rocky Mountains. Mountain peaks here will reach over 13,000 feet, and winters snowfall can be significant. In this setting, you may find what is referred to as the Northern New Mexico Style home. This architecture shows a very steep pitched roof, typically metal for the quick shedding of what can be many feet of snow. Dormers windows are also prevalent for this style and allow in an abundance of natural light.
Not all of New Mexico architecture is so well defined. Many newer homes are more traditional in look and construction. They may incorporate Spanish tile roofs, stucco exteriors, and southwest landscape called Xeriscape. Some people affectionately say “Zero Scape,” which might imply NO landscaping. However, Xeriscape is incredibly beautiful, requires very little maintenance, and, most importantly, uses very little water, which is precious here in the High Desert.
There is so much to know and discover about New Mexico and the diversity of this Land of Enchantment. My wife and I have explored nearly every corner, mountaintop, and back road of this beautiful state.
