What I really enjoy about the Nor Este subdivision in North Albuquerque Acres West is that it is probably the oldest subdivision, which was built by Presley Homes (although Sivage snuck a few in there), in a newer, up-and-coming area with in the NE heights. Located north of Paseo del Norte and east of Wyoming, Nor Este flourishes with large, mature foliage which is hard to find in the North Albuquerque Acres area. Several of the newer homes have small, saplings trees and xeriscape for the landscaping and, although that is nice, Nor Este is unique in that the trees and landscaping are much more grown than the newer homes. Looking at a satellite image of this area, one can see that Nor Este is an oasis of sorts.
Nor Este also benefits from the school districts. Some of the finest in Albuquerque are found in Nor Este which also makes this area a very family oriented subdivision, so drive slow! :) The Schools are North Star elementary, Desert Ridge middle school and the infamous La Cueva high school, home of the Bears.
The area in which the subdivision rests is in a great proximity to the I-25 and Paseo del Norte, which is a booming area of new commercial activity. It is great for shopping and some entertainment (which we hope will get better with time!). There is still a lot of vacant land along Paseo del Norte and the residence speculation is always a good conversation for conversation!
There is real estate for sale in this area. Call your Realtor if you are interested in seeing any of these homes!
