Located just thirty minutes west of Albuquerque in the Highland Meadows subdivision, this 1 acre lot is perfect for anyone seeking privacy, beautiful surroundings and an escape from the ever increasing cost-of-living in the city. In fact, owning land in this area - a subdivision conveniently located between both the I-40 and Highway 6 - will afford you easy commutes back and forth between work and home whether your job is in Albuquerque or nearby Los Lunas. In addition, Highland Meadows is ideal for site-built, mobile or modular homes, as it has not only permissive zoning but also power and well maintained roads throughout the region. Best of all, however, are the views. This lot sits within the foothills of the towering rock formation that borders it to its northeast, and within easy driving distance of the awe-inspiring Mesa Redonda to its south. Admire both from afar or use your free time to hike the trails and hillsides of both. Either way, youll find theres a lot to like about this affordable, secluded and picturesque region.
Things To Know: Highland Meadows sits very close to Highway 6, Route 66 and the I-40 corridor. This means youll have easy access to nearby Los Lunas and Albuquerque.
While there are no stores within Highland Meadows itself, the nearest Wal-Mart Super Center can be found in Los Lunas, and is a quick twenty minute drive along the scenic Highway 6.

Anyone looking to build here is advised to contact the local utility company to investigate the cost extending power to the subject property, or to consider a cost-effective solar alternative.
The boundaries of this property seem to be marked with property stakes though Hemingway Land makes no guarantee as to the purpose or accuracy of these markers.
