visit the Village The first annual Corrales Home Tour showcases six distinctive residences
ucked away from the hustle and bustle of greater Albuquerque, immediately west of the Rio Grande River, is the historic farming village of Corrales. If you’ve ever wanted to explore this charming town, the Corrales Home Tour, on Sunday, September 14, is the perfect opportunity. “We have included a terrific assortment of homes that are very representative of the unique character of Corrales—historic adobes as well as contemporary homes,” says Nancy Renner, promotions chairperson for the Corrales Home Tour. Six homes are on the tour, including two that were featured in Su Casa (see Spring 2013, “What Would Frank Do?” and Autumn 2013, “Another Time, Maybe”). Other homes on the tour include an authentic Pueblo-style home that started as a storage shed but expanded over the years into a sprawling estate, a contemporary situated high on the sandhills with 180-degree views of the Sandias, and others.
“We have included a terrific assortment
of homes that are very representative of the unique character of Corrales.”—Nancy Renner Tickets to the self-guided tour are $20 if purchased in advance or $25 if purchased the day of the tour at tents along Corrales Road. Advance tickets may be purchased online at corralesfuturefund.org/home-tour or at several local businesses, and proceeds benefit the Corrales Future Fund, a not-for-profit organization formed in 2008 to build an endowment for the benefit of the Village of Corrales. Homes on the tour will be open from 10 AM–4 PM on Sunday the 14th, but visitors are also encouraged to experience one of Corrales’ charming B&Bs, the Corrales Wine Loop, or a locally owned restaurant. “Make a weekend of it!” Renner suggests. “Once you’ve visited our art galleries, great shops, and wonderful walking paths along the historic acequias, you’ll see why people love living in Corrales—some of them so much that they’re graciously opening their homes for everyone to enjoy on the Corrales Home Tour.”
