Southwest Santa Fe is the largest area of the city and continues to grow. It is a wonderful place to buy a home and offers a wide variety of neighborhoods and subdivisions from which to choose. The west side is a unique blend of commercial development and mid-priced adobe homes. This is a well-established family-friendly community and is home to Larragoite Elementary School and St. Anne’s church, both contributing to the charming neighborhood ambiance. West of the west side there is another family-oriented neighborhood known as Barrio la Cañada. Close to town, this area is comprised of larger-than-average homes with interesting decorative elements. It is also well-established and boasts mature trees, older landscaping, and sidewalks.
If you travel west on Agua Fría Street, you’ll eventually come across Frenchy’s Field, and directly across from this delightful park you’ll see Casa Alegre. This Southwest Santa Fe neighborhood was developed in the 1950s by Allen Stamm and is comprised of small-ish homes like those found in the Casa Solana communities. Among the many benefits of buying a home in Casa Alegre, the neighborhood is in close proximity to schools and shopping.
Also of Stamm-design, the Kaune neighborhood is also in proximity to schools, parks, and other amenities. The neighborhood is accessed from Monterey Drive and features a broad range of architectural styles that include Spanish pueblo, flat-roof California styles, and Territorial.
Another wonderful Southwest Santa Fe neighborhood is that of Tierra Contenta. This is a mixed-use community with low to moderately priced homes. When built-out the community will have around 4,000 homes in addition to parks, open space, schools, businesses, and community services. South of the city Rancho Viejo features multiple villages around a central plaza. The community creates a feeling of living within nature and blends into the natural beauty of the landscape while simultaneously reflecting the state’s rich cultural heritage.
Off Rodeo Road, the planned development of Nava Ade sits in proximity to the Santo Niño Catholic School and Santa Fe Community College. Homes here have spectacular architecture and residents enjoy convenient access to Interstate 25 and shopping, including the Santa Fe Place Mall. Any one of these remarkable Southwest Santa Fe neighborhoods would be a great place to buy home.
