Southeast Sante Fe County is a beautiful area with gently rolling hills and heavily-forested neighborhoods situated along the Old Santa Fe Trail. Before the completion of Interstate 25, the Old Las Vegas Highway was the main thoroughfare between Las Vegas, New Mexico and Santa Fe. And before that, the route, which winds north, was part of the renowned Santa Fe Trail.
Found in the foothills of the Sangres, the communities in the lower elevations along the Old Santa Fe Trail are rich with juniper and pinyon, while the higher elevations have picturesque mountain terrain. Almost all of the neighborhoods along the Trail have gorgeous views of the Sandias and provide front-row seats for breathtaking Santa Fe sunsets. Home lots along Old Santa Fe Trail typically start around 2.5 acres, with some as large as ten acres. Communities here include La Vista, Mercer, La Barberia, Cloudstone, Coyote Mountain Road, Double Arrow Road, and Overlook I and II.
The Southside hills area of Santa Fe encompasses Arroyo Hondo, Sunlit Hills, and Seton Village, among others. These lovely little communities are only ten minutes from the city but have an alluring rural atmosphere with picturesque views of the Jemez, Ortiz Mountains, and the Cerrillos Hills. Lots in the Southside hills area tend to be at least five acres in size and often more significant. Arroyo Hondo is an excellent choice for horse owners and is known for its expansive open meadows and level terrain. It has beautiful western and southern views, scenic trails from two trailheads, and lots ranging in size from 2.5 to ten acres. Seton Village is a historic site which was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965. This remarkable village affords views of Mount Taylor and the Jemez. Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Sunlit Hills has homes of the Santa Fe style, typically situated on five-acre lots.
