Cerros Colorados is Spanish for "Colored Hills".
Cerros Colorados is Spanish for “Colored Hills,” a very fitting description of this neighborhood, which offers some of the most spectacular views of the Land of Enchantment’s multi-hued, postcard perfect sunsets. Located on the south side of Hyde Park Road, which leads to the Santa Fe Ski Basin 12 miles away, this upscale mountain valley community has city water, paved streets, and underground utilities. For enjoyment of the outdoors, Cerros Colorados is about as close to the skiing, hiking, biking and other activities found in the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains as one can get without living in the forest itself.
The area’s single family homes are custom-built, luxurious and spaciously accommodated on 1/2 to 2-acre lots. There’s also a design covenant here that maintains Santa Fe and New Mexico’s unique architectural styles. And because it’s located on the side of the mountain, there are excellent views to the south and the west. There are retirees here, as well as working professionals, and everyone in Cerros Colorados values just how close everything is. Just moments away from the city’s businesses, downtown, the Santa Fe Opera, art galleries, museums, and restaurants – and to the many other recreational amenities, from hiking and biking trails to equestrian facilities and golf courses. It's all waiting, nearby.
