South Capitol

Bounded from the state capitol complex to the St. Vincent Hospital, the South Capitol area is quite simply named as such because it is located south of the Capitol building. This area was heavily influenced by tastes and styles brought to Santa Fe via the railroad. The result is a cultural masterpiece of a town.

With the majority of this area constructed in the 1940's and 1950's, South Capitol has a definite allure to it. Even with renovations and new homes, it has not lost any of its old world charm. Bungalows, framed construction, Pueblo Revivals, and Victorians all come together to create a fusion of architectural magic.

The property value continues to rise in this area, the community involvement is strong, and the schools are quality. Of course, true to the historic Eastside and downtown area of Santa Fe, there is a Mecca of galleries, shops and great restaurants. Back Street Bistro, Santa Fe Baking Company and Vinaigrette are some of the hometown favorites.

Museum Hill

Four museums. One very popular café. Unique Shopping. An extensive collection of Santa Fe's art and culture. Museum Hill is an area in Santa Fe that brings its fascinating museums together - all in one place.

Museum of Spanish Colonial Art
3,000 objects of Spanish Colonial Art make this art collection the most comprehensive compilation of its kind. It features everything from Santos (painted and sculpted images of saints) and textiles, to books and furniture - all housed in a classic Spanish Colonial or "Pueblo Revival" building.

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture offers artifacts of the Southwest from ancestral to contemporary. It boasts more than 70,000 works of art and material culture. This museum is more than just its exhibits; it also offers public lectures, field trips, artist residencies, and other educational programs.

Museum of International Folk Art
This is a museum of a different color. Sometimes it is the everyday objects like toys, textiles, household goods and religious art that make the best art because they promote a better understanding of cultures past and present.

Wheelright Museum of the American Indian
Here is where you will find important Native American art. Objects and archives pertaining to the arts and cultures of the Navajo, the Rio Grande Pueblos, and other native peoples of New Mexico are all housed in this 8-sided building inspired by traditional Navajo Hooghan. The exhibits are constantly chaining, exploring all types of contemporary and historic Native American art with a Southwest emphasis.

The Plaza

The central park of Santa Fe is definitely the Santa Fe Plaza. Rich with history and stories, it is actually listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Walking its streets is like taking a step back in time knowing that many of the surrounding buildings stand just as they did during Colonial Spanish times.

As much as it is historical, it is also just a place for the people of Santa Fe to sit on benches or under trees, play in the grass, listen to live bands perform, and look forward to at Christmas time when the buildings are donned with farolitos and luminaries.

While The Plaza is steeped in Santa Fe's past, The Railyard is all about Santa Fe's future. Just like everything in New Mexico, the Railyard, of course, has a history. But with the railroad locale's decline back in 1987, the city made a master plan to revamp the entire community to make it the forward-thinking, vibrant hub that it is today.

Filled with non-profit organizations such as the Farmers Market, internationally renowned arts organization SITE Santa Fe, Hispanic cultural center El Museo Cultural and teen art center Warehouse 21, this is the kind of town perfect for community-minded residents who like to get involved.

As part of the Railyard Master Plan's mission to embrace the landscape and the environment, efforts such as trails for pedestrians and cyclists, water harvesting practices and the use of environmentally responsible systems have been implemented.

On top of it all, the Railyard boasts live-in art studios, a cinema, galleries, museums, restaurants and more than 13 acres of open space.

Casa Solana

Located only a mile west of the Plaza, Casa Solana has access to all the amenities of the downtown arts and culture, with the benefit of a more private, neighborhood feel. Defined by its wide open streets, mature trees and parks, Casa Solana is truly a friendly, old-fashioned home-town, kind of neighborhood.  

Acclaimed builder Allen Stamm established the homes in the Casa Solana subdivision back in 1950. Stamm specifically did not include front yard fences in his home designs because he wanted neighbors to get to know each other. Thoughtful touches to the home design such as built-in spaces for Christmas trees and highchairs, as well as garages that could easily be converted into bedrooms for growing families, speak to the type of neighborhood that Stamm envisioned Casa Solana to be.

The best part about Casa Solana is that it is one of the most affordable neighborhoods in the Santa Fe area. It's not often you can find an area that offers amenities such as tennis and basketball courts, a family-friendly community pool, volunteer opportunities, and unique restaurants (check out Annapurna) with property values ranging from $200,000 to $500,000.

Old Las Vegas Corridor

In the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Old Las Vegas Corridor is a rural and secluded area. Here is a place where you can own large lots of sprawling land with incredible views and terrain to call your own. Even though the Las Vegas Corridor can make you feel miles from civilization, the drive to town is only a few minutes away by I-25 or highway 285. If you choose to be completely secluded, there are properties located beyond the winding hilly side roads that will take you off the beaten path and into seemingly untouched territory.

Arroyo Hondo

Arroyo Hondo is just west of the Old Las Vegas Corridor and offers similar characteristics. The difference is Arroyo Hondo is a little more level and open than the Corridor. Most lots tend to be at least 5 acres, serving as perfect property for horse owners. Luxury homes are common place here. With its sprawling land, private location and custom-made homes, this area has even been known to attract celebrities.

Highway 285

Highway 285 is more than a community; it is a famous road that runs through the states of Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. The route stretches across mountainous and rocky terrain. The 1990s saw this area as prime real estate. Slowly but surely, subdivisions began to develop, eventually resulting into multiple small subdivisions and two historic communities, Galisteo and Lamy. The remaining communities include Alteza, Belicia, Cielo Colorado, Cimarron, Dos Griegos, East Ranch, La Paz, Las Nubes, Los Caballos, Los Vaqueros, Old Ranch Road, The Ridges and Tierra Colinas.

Large lots and horse facilities are peppered throughout the communities. A wide range of property value, starting from $300,000, and going to over $1 million, allows for homes of all shapes and sizes. The area boasts its own amenities - from a public library to an elementary school, to a senior center, while commercial developments like shopping centers, restaurants and art galleries have popped up adjacent to the highway. At one time a large cattle ranch, this stretch of land has officially become an active community, yet it has still kept its natural beauty intact.


Rancho Viejo

Although essentially a modern planned community, Rancho Viejo emits a feeling reminiscent of an old fashioned New Mexican village. It has been strategically planned to preserve the natural open spaces while still providing a sense of community, with 50 percent of the land left for this purpose alone. This dispersed land meanders and trails through the community, providing the separation of individual villages.

Ideal for the active-minded, the community is paved with trails for walking, biking and jogging. To further encourage the village lifestyle, there are multiple central plazas where neighbors come together. Within the plaza resides neighborhood-scale commercial shops and stores. Also available is a fitness center, three parks complete with play equipment, a planned public elementary school. Rancho Viejo is also the setting for Santa Fe Community College.  All of these benefits come to you in the form of affordably priced housing.

Pueblos del Sol

A centrally located community in Santa Fe, the Pueblos Del Sol is run by a homeowners association. Translating to "The People of the Sun," it makes sense that this community would value outdoor living. A lovely pocket park touts a shade canopy and playground equipment and various trails are strewn throughout the community. Many of the homes welcome in the sun with skylights and large windows. Nearby, amenities such as a Whole Foods, two local malls and a movie theater offer convenience and entertainment.

Park Plazas

Park Plazas is a fitting name for this subdivision. It’s filled with parks and outdoor amenities. This includes common areas, walking trails, a tennis court, an off leash dog area, an outdoor exercise area, playgrounds, a baseball field and outdoor storage.

It's characterized by homes, townhomes and lots of open common land. Although it is an association, homeowners are responsible for the repair and maintenance of their own land. The association is, however, responsible for the maintenance of all common areas.
