LOS RANCHOS DE ALBUQUERQUE

A Map & Admission Location!

700 Mullen Rd NW

Apx Yr 1946 - 3 (possible 4) Bed/4 Bath,  4200 SF, 1 acre
$1,290,000   ML# 642875

One of the Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque’s earliest home sites from the late 1920’s.  The property was developed by the prominent Mullen family as their family home.

The original structure was a Victorian style cottage with Northern New Mexico accents.  The original three bedroom home has been a religious retreat and an exotic bird breeding farm  in its early history.  The present design of the home was expanded and modernized by Kay Beeson in 1996.

The guest house was designed by Pedro Marques of Santa Fe and Cyrene Inman and was built in 2006.   This structure, inspired by the Northern New Mexico style, has many interesting details, such as inlaid floors and other inspirations from La Posada de Santa Fe.  The one acre home site was originally part of a 4 acre tract.

THE VILLAGE OF CORRALES

A Map & Admission Location!

3775 Corrales Rd

Circa 1877, 5 Bed/4 Bath, 5846 SF
$1,248,800  MLS# 635961

HOME OF CAPITAN JUAN GONZALES’ GREAT-GRANDSON UP FOR SALE
One of the oldest homes in Corrales, believed started by a great-grandson of founder Capitán Juan Gonzales, is on the real estate market for $1,248,800.
When Santiago Gonzales and his wife, Manuelita, lived in what has been known more recently as the Kruhm house in the 1800s, it didn’t have a six-carriage garage.
Instead it had a stable and carriage house, suitably downwind and some distance away. That part of the Gonzales hacienda, long since subdivided, is now the Cleo Padilla residence. The contemporary residence closer to the old Gonzales home was the ranch bunkhouse, where the Fiedler family now resides.
Each of those remnants of the venerable Gonzales hacienda has undergone extensive renovation during the past four centuries. A major transformation of the main house has taken place within the last three years.
Contractor Jack Payne and his wife, Tammy, lived in the old home well back from the highway at 3775 Corrales Road for two years before they began remodeling.
Now at 5846 square feet with five bedrooms and four baths, the home had already undergone too much transformation by the 1980s to warrant designation on the National Register of Historic Places.
But its historical and architectural evolution have been documented over the years by preservation-oriented groups which have variously referred to it as “Casa Ronda” or “Casa Gonzales.”
Aerial photographs in 1936 show the structure in an L-shape, which included the east facade which visitors to the Kruhm home would have seen in the last half of the 20th century.
Ken and Barbara Kruhm purchased the property in 1957. They hired master-builder Nat Kaplan to make substantial improvements to the dwelling.
But by some accounts, the old Gonzales house had once consisted of 30 rooms, perhaps the biggest home in Corrales.
A detailed description of “Casa Ronda” in 1962 referred to it as “the oldest or second oldest house in the valley,” and noted that it “was purchased by the Receconi family in 1947, and with the help of Peter Lienau, was restored; that is, what was left of a 30 room square house.”
The latest remodeling, completed in March 2006, enclosed the courtyard on the west side of the home and made it into a modern kitchen and family room.
A large master bedroom was added to the northeast corner of the structure, and thorough renovation of the remainder of the home was completed as well.

The home sits on 3.67 acres, included in the $1,248,800 asking price.
