Northeast Santa Fe

The northeast springs from the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, where vistas of purple mountains’ majesty drift down through sleepy rolling hills of piñon into the loving arms of Tesuque Village and Santa Fe’s storied eastside. From historic pied-a-terre’s to grand estate homes, the northeast is where you’ll discover some of Santa Fe’s most treasured properties. Beautiful homes moments away from a day hike up the Windsor Trail, walking Canyon Road or a sunset margarita at La Fonda with your sweetheart before you cut a rug at Bandstand on The Plaza.
