Cedar Crest & Tijeras
The East Mountain communities offer wonderful options for those seeking a rural lifestyle within easy commuting distance to Albuquerque. The term, “East Mountains” refers to the communities located on the eastern side of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains, specifically Cedar Crest and Tijeras. The East Mountain area offers widely varying terrain and homes of many styles and price ranges. Homes range from aged, rustic mountain cabins to elegant executive residences in new, planned developments to spectacular custom estates. Lot sizes vary from an acre to ten or more acres. Land ranges from steeply sloped areas thick with Ponderosa pines to nearly flat meadow. Despite the close proximity to Albuquerque, the weather is markedly different, most notably, the winter snow.
