Northwest Santa Fe Real Estate Information

The northwestern section of Santa Fe is situated on a bluff that faces much of the city’s aesthetic features, such as downtown and the Sangre de Cristos Mountains. The two major locations in this region are Las Campanas and Aldea.

Las Campanas Las Campanas is a premier golfing community situated on the outskirts of Santa Fe. This high desert getaway has eighteen hundred lots spread over five thousand acres, in addition to the two signature golf courses in this area. The homes in this area are beautiful and rustic, some reflecting the adobe styles of old. In fact, the houses here come in different styles, from the typical ranch style to cozy log cabins. The Las Campanas community also has a spa, tennis court and equestrian club.

Aldea Aldea is extremely different from its quiet, rustic counter part. Meaning “small village,” Aldea is a New Urbanist development flavored by the Santa Fe style. This village is built upon dramatic ridges, and has a great view of the mountains. You will feel a sense of comfort and privacy in your Spanish colonial home or bungalow.

Aldea is a community that has been designed to be environmentally friendly. Many of the typical urban staples, such as telephone poles, are located underground to prevent the obstruction of the roads and streets. Aldea is a model for the Sustainable Community Institute, which studies the community growth, traffic reduction, and water use.
