Northeastern Santa Fe County
On a clear day, most of the the communities located in this area have a view of the entire Rio Grande Valley all the way to the Colorado border. Small villages are interspersed with newer subdivisions perched on the hills. With the secret homes of many celebrities, this area is also made up of adobe fixer-uppers and architectural gems. The area includes Los Caminitos, Vista Redonda, Chupadero, Rio En Medio, Pacheco Canyon and Pueblo Encantado.
The picturesque, incorporated village of Tesuque enjoys a rural feel (there are still horse properties here) and is only five minutes north of Santa Fe, just beyond Bishop's Lodge. Known for its valley of lush vegetation and the Tesuque River, as well as hilltop sites with views and traditional Northern New Mexico pinon and juniper, Tesuque attracts artists, professionals, retirees, second home owners, and celebrities seeking anonymity. There is a small commercial community consisting of the popular landmarks Tesuque Market, El Nido Restaurant, and Shidoni Foundry.
