The Northeast Heights area of Albuquerque is not a separate incorporated area, but one of the four quadrants that divides Albuquerque by highways, rivers, or railroad tracks, depending on whom you ask. It is one of the most desirable parts of Albuquerque with good schools both public and private, strong athletic programs, and close access to New Mexico Open Spaces and designated wilderness areas, making hiking, biking, and trekking convenient for enthusiasts. Many of the properties are single-family homes on good-sized lots, with mature landscaping and trees and well-kept sidewalks and roadways. There are many different architecture styles to be considered among homes for sale in northeast Albuquerque, among them many traditional haciendas and southwest construction styles, with more than in most other parts of the city. Properties are well maintained and average prices in this area are higher overall than most other neighborhoods in Albuquerque.
It might surprise you to know that the different feel and unique, spacious design of many homes for sale in Northeast Heights Albuquerque is a feature at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC of classic American mid-century architecture and design. A product of the 1950’s, David Bellamah’s “Princess Jeanne Park” neighborhood set the standard for local design that encompassed large lots, fireplaces, and newfangled modern conveniences like linoleum, Formica, and “Pulverator” disposals. The upscale, somewhat open-air concept was quick to catch on, and homes of this classic atomic age styling are tenderly cared for and kept restored as one of the classic mid-century modern style trend neighborhoods in the country. Many of these spacious homes reside on large, treed lots that are situated to take maximum advantage of panoramic views of the Sandia Mountains.
Northeast Heights also has some townhomes, condominiums, lofts, and apartments in the various sections of the quadrant. Many apartments are closer to Central New Mexico Community College or medical facilities such as the famous MD Anderson Cancer Center. City planning was done to keep residential areas quiet and treed, and shopping and business sections easy to access. With many golf courses, recreational facilities, and even an amusement park, this part of Albuquerque has something for everyone of every age to enjoy.
Those beautiful homes do come up for sale, and I have been proud as a life-long native of Albuquerque to see those classic residences go to new owners that truly appreciate design and décor unique to Albuquerque.

As the northeast section of Albuquerque refreshed its look, a thriving Uptown Business District blossomed. This upscale shopping district is a mix of restaurants, shops, boutiques, offices, and other businesses in an outdoor mall arrangement. The large lots and trees lend a feel of out of town in Uptown, while you are still close to the New Mexico State Fairgrounds, the Albuquerque Racetrack and Casino, our famous open air flea market, and the Albuquerque Thunderbirds NBA complex under development. Like many parts of our area, there are also many parks, golf courses, ball fields, tennis courts, and picnic spots throughout the Northeast Heights so you can enjoy the terrific weather we have year round, as well as the world famous Balloon Festival with unencumbered views. Houses for sale in NE Albuquerque are both close to the Sandia Mountain Wilderness and the Albuquerque Foothills Open Space, but are also close to Albuquerque’s metro area easily accessed by highway or side streets.
