Prospective residents will find everything from modern, to Santa Fe's traditional adobe.
Located just northwest of the city limits, these four communities – La Mirada, La Tierra, Los Sueños, and La Serena – offer a wide array of architectural styles. Prospective residents will find everything from modern, to Santa Fe's traditional adobe and Territorial styles, to a pleasing contemporary blend of both. Within each neighborhood, lot size, design style, and landscape vary, which adds to every community’s distinctive charm and unique characteristics. And since the neighborhoods are without any defined boundaries, the entire area has an open and spacious feel. As the lots here are generously sized, residents enjoy the feeling of countryside living, while also taking advantage of easy access to all the amenities the City Different offers, which is just minutes away.
Gently rolling hills, and this area's unique and well-planned siting, afford its residents breathtaking views of all the mountain ranges around Santa Fe. Take in the Sangre de Cristos, the Jemez, even the faraway Sandias down in Albuquerque from this exclusive locale, where some of the magnificent homes here offer 360-degree views. The surrounding landscape features winding arroyos, juniper and piñon trees, and a variety of cacti. At night, because there are no city lights to interfere, the sky is bathed in stars, which often seem close enough to touch.
These neighborhoods are also very close to Santa Fe’s No. 1 golf development community, Las Campanas. Non-property memberships are offered, and provide the opportunity to play on its Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses. Conveniently located horse riding facilities are also nearby, as well as the public Marty Sanchez City Golf Course and several hiking trails. The internationally recognized, open-air Santa Fe Opera is just a short drive away, as is downtown Santa Fe and its restaurants, art galleries, festivals, markets, museums, and shopping.
The wide-open vistas and spectacular mountain views of the La Mirada, La Mariposa, La Serena, and Los Sueños neighborhoods offer its residents the openness and beauty of nature, along with all the benefits of living close to Santa Fe and its conveniences. Each of these neighborhoods are gems, and they invite prospective homeowners to find their own personal treasure here.
