ABQ High Desert is magnificent 1000 acre development at the base of the Sandia Mountains bordering the Cibola National Forest and Sandia Mountain Wilderness. This sustainable community was designed to preserve the resources, natural beauty and ecosystem. The High Desert’s vision is “that development should responsibly coexist with nature” and it most certainly has realized this vision.
The ABQ High Desert Community offers a variety of custom High Desert Homes that complement the surrounding environment including; Santa Fe Pueblo, SW Contemporary, Mediterranean, Old World, Tuscan and Contemporary. Home sites range from spectacular luxury ½ acre to 2 acres with a maximum 12,000 square foot building envelope strategically designed to preserve views and privacy.
Other areas within the community are designed for smaller custom home sites including townhomes. Many people who love the outdoors and a luxurious lifestyle live in High Desert where approximately 40% of the development remains protected open space with a 10-acre neighborhood park, the largest of several more intimate neighborhood parks and access to an extensive network of trails and bike paths that run through the community connecting to the trails within the Sandia Mountain Wilderness and Cibola National Forest. Arroyos provide spectacular view corridors and open space buffers but also serve as home to the wildlife habitat throughout Albuquerque's High Desert. The views, landscape and mountain back drop are truly enchanting and offer an environment of ever changing beauty.
