Many homeowners can boast of spectacular star gazing from decks or balconies, but few go as far as to install a computerized telescope and observatory for viewing.
However, the owners of this home on Skyline Road in Sandia Park, N.M., a little over 30 miles outside Albuquerque, have done just that. The house, located in a prime spot for stars in the Sandia Mountains, is on the market with an asking price of $500,000.
"It's the most phenomenal view I've seen in New Mexico. Your view of the stars is like nothing you can imagine" said listing agent Kara Schug of RE/MAX Pros.
Accessible via the home office, the observatory's glass ceiling gives way to a view of the stars. An outdoor balcony holds the telescope, but the owners have finished wiring to bring the telescope inside. The telescope is included with the home.
