The homes here offer an abundance of upscale features.
This exclusive community includes the Tano Road area, the Tano Ridge subdivision, and the Sundance Estates subdivision. Sited off of Tano Road, which runs east-west just north of Santa Fe, the Tano Road area is only minutes away from the many conveniences and cultural attractions of Santa Fe. The homes here offer an abundance of upscale features: guest cottages, outdoor pools, artist studios, wine cellars, beautifully landscaped gardens, and floor-to-ceiling windows that frame magnificent mountain views.
The Tano Road area was unofficially founded in the late 1940s, on land where some of the “Cinco Pintores” – a group of five painters who led one of Santa Fe’s original art movements – chose to call home. With 154 acres of glorious vistas, 46 of these acres have since been designated as open space to preserve the area's stunning natural beauty. Lots in the community are large, with underground utilities and many multi-acre plots, ensuring privacy and affording residents room to build. The variety of architectural styles varies, offering homebuyers everything from Pueblo to Territorial to contemporary, along with a blend of other options.
The area feels expansive, thanks in part to the room between lots and to the many walking trails near at hand, most of which wind through juniper and piñon trees and mature vegetation. Many of these estates also offer views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountain ranges.
The Tano/Sundance Estate area is close to the picturesque village of Tesuque and its Tesuque Village Market, a favorite among locals and tourists alike. The Stables at Bishop’s Lodge Ranch Resort and Spa is a short drive through Tesuque. In the wintertime, the Santa Fe Ski Basin offers excellent Nordic and Alpine skiing. The Santa Fe National Forest’s miles of hiking and biking trails are also easily accessible, and Santa Fe’s rich cultural and artistic attractions are a short distance away.
The gracious country setting, splendid views, and private, spacious lots provide an unforgettable backdrop. City amenities, fine restaurants, one-of-a-kind boutiques, and conveniences are nearby. Of all the upscale homes for sale in Santa Fe, these are among the most highly sought after, and for many excellent reasons.
