Ventana Ranch West neighborhood was built shortly after Ventana Ranch east was completed. This family and pet friendly community was one of the original planned communities on the west side of Albuquerque and sits just north of the Volcanoes and east of the Double Eagle Airport with beautiful views of the Sandia mountains.

Notice the well kept common areas with miles of bike trails, well lit streets, maintained sidewalks, community mailboxes, well maintained parks and friendly neighbors.

You have a Home Owner Association with monthly Home Owner dues along with covenants and restrictions. Ventana Ranch East has a community pool but this is NOT covered in the HOA dues and I last I recall Ventana West home owners were restricted on pool usage.

Enjoy the short distance to the neighborhood strip where you find Walgreens, Shell Gas Station, a Taco Bell, KFC, Little Anitas, Great Clips, BEBE nail salon, What A Burger, Bank of Albuquerque, Pizza 9,  Rose Garden, homemade Beef Jerky store, Dollar Tree, Desert Ridge Dental, A church, Auto Parts store, and more shops coming.


I lived in Ventana Ranch for over 17 years. I lived in the Teresina subidivison located near Ventana Ranch Elementary School, the Sedona Subdivision at the far east end of the community off of Irving, and Cantabella subdivision directly across from the only town home complex in Ventana Ranch. We moved in when this new community was just being built in 1996 and it was really neat to see how much it has grown and developed.

Why did we leave Ventana Ranch?

The reason we moved out of Ventana Ranch was because of its restrictions. Particularly, we could not park our RV in our side yard. This was a big deal for us so we found an affordable older home with side yard access in an older neighborhood knows as "mortgage hills" or "Little Paseo" and it's the only patch of Bernalillo County inside of Albuquerque. We have the Bernalillo County Sheriffs department who respond, not APD, we have all our community services through the county and not the city.

We have resided for 5 years just outside of Ventana Ranch in Paradise Hills next to James Monroe Middle School and behind the baseball field.

We didn't move far at all but in "Little Paseo" community we are in a little piece of the county where you find the older homes, a less restrictive Owner Association and the ability to park your RV on the side of the house. I am within a 5 minute walk from Ventana Ranch's shopping strip. My parents and my youngest sister still live in Ventana Ranch.
