South of Eldorado there are 2,500 acres that include Highway 285, Lamy, Galisteo and several other communities. Once part of the old Sebastian De Varga Grant, this picturesque area is now home to tree-filled ranching and artist villages encircled by a gently rolling terrain. Other communities in the area include Los Caballos, Old Road Ranch, Camino Valle Street, Pinon Street, The Ridges, Ranchitos de Santa Fe, Los Vaqueros, and Cimarron.
Lamy and Galisteo are two of the state’s most beautiful villages. These quiet communities are found just eighteen minutes south of the Plaza and boast delightful adobe village homes, in addition to view homes and acreages. The Village of Lamy was named for Archbishop Jean-Baptiste Lamy and was put on the map in 1896 when the El Ortiz Hotel was built here by the Fred Harvey Company. The area’s heritage and history are preserved in the Lamy Railroad and History Museum. The buildings housing the museum are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and were formerly the Pflueger General Merchandise Store and the attached Annex Saloon. Homes for sale in Lamy include properties of varying size and age in a broad price range.
Galisteo is found in the heart of The Galisteo Basin Preserve. This beautiful ecological area is celebrated for its diverse wildlife, cultural and scenic values. The Preserve is designed to restore and conserve over 13,000 acres of open space. Because of the beauty of the area, Galisteo has a significant artist population. Annually the Galisteo Studio Tour displays the numerous local works that include weavings, jewelry, bronze sculpture, pottery and ceramic art, retablos, photography, and paintings. Altogether around two hundred fifty people live in this delightful adobe village which has served as a filming location for multiple major motion pictures including Thor and Legion, as well as several westerns. Galisteo homes for sale are also of varied styles and sizes.
