Sandia Heights was one of the first Albuquerque real estate developments nestled in the foothills at the base of the Sandia Mountains. The winding roads climb through the rolling hills up to the Sandia National Forest boundary. The site of coyotes, deer and other wildlife crossing through properties into the National Forest is a common site. Sandia Heights maintains the beauty of Albuquerque’s natural high desert landscape and native plants including; pinon and pine trees, yucca, chamisa and flowing cactus to preserve the delicate balance between home dwellings and wildlife habitat. It is not common to see grassy yards from the street or paved sidewalks and a multitude of street lights; rather it’s a peaceful place where the home owners in Sandia Heights enjoy the essence and serenity of Albuquerque’s open spaces and forest boundaries.
