Although Santa Fe claims gorgeous homes, stunning landscapes, and plenty to see and do, the city's distinctive neighborhoods are the real star of the show.
There's little doubt that Santa Fe is a remarkable city to call home. Unique, upscale shopping opportunities are abundant. Exquisite dining is sure to satisfy the most discriminating palette. It's also home to a rich cultural tapestry; the arts are a central draw for many that relocate here.
And we must not forget the bevy of outdoor pursuits. You have direct access to hiking, biking, rafting, skiing, golfing, and equestrian activities in Santa Fe—and that's without using your imagination. It's a literal playground for those seeking an active lifestyle amidst the city's stunning southwestern environment.
Yes, all of the above make Santa Fe an outstanding area to return to time and again. Whether you claim it as a permanent residence or opt for a second or third home when you're here, you never want to leave; when you're gone, you always yearn to return.
Santa Fe's greatest attribute, however, is perhaps its most overlooked—its neighborhoods. There are over 20 luxury communities from which to choose. Each one offers its own unique lifestyle and amenities and serves as the anchor for some of the city's most stunning homes and grand southwestern estates.
