Hwy 14/County Rd 42
With many lots 2.5 acres or more, this area is perfect for raising horses on wide open spaces with fewer building restrictions than in the city of Santa Fe. The famous Eaves Movie Ranch )where movies like "The Cheyenne Social Club" and "Silverado"were filmed) completes the Old West ambience. The area includes Rancho Alegre, Rancho San Marcos, Turquoise Trail Subdivision, Valle Linda, and Valle Vista.
La Cienega & La Cieneguilla
This historic area dates from the early 1700s and was an important stopping point (paraje) along the famous Camino Real, the royal road from Mexico City to Santa Fe. These larger lots are dotted with pinon and juniper, while the lower elevations are lush with mature cottonwoods. Includes Remuda Ridge, the race track area and the Ranchos de la Luna subdivision.
Madrid & Cerrillos
Once home to a large mining community, Madrid is now a sleepy little town of artists. With an ice cream parlour and old fashioned businesses, Madrid feels other-worldly to visitors. Homes here are early 20th century wooden structures painted a variety of colors. Just north of Madrid is Cerrillos, a traditional New Mexico village of older adobes and quaint shops. Located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe along Highway 14, this community includes County Road 55, Goldmine Road, and the communities of Golden and Edgewood.
