Heart & Soul

Historic Eastside

It's the Santa Fe style that completely defines the character and soul of the Historic Eastside real estate market. It arose in prominence immediately following the long and difficult struggle for statehood in 1912. New Mexico's efforts to look American by importing a tapestry of architectural styles from the east coast, with modern construction techniques and materials, were threatening to change the unique character of Santa Fe.


From rustic adobe compounds with their vigas, latillas, nichos, canales and bancos to grand territorial estates that feature stucco exteriors with sharp parapet walls and brick coping decor, Santa Fe's Historic Eastside real estate offers a variety of living styles. These styles are reflective of the vibrant fabric of indigenous peoples, Colonial Spanish settlers, Mexican officials, pioneers, cowboys, outlaws, scientists, artists and dreamers that have graced this neighborhood and helped define Santa Fe as "The City Different."

Historic Eastside Real Estate Market

Because of the gorgeous properties and rich culture, the real estate market in the Historic Eastside is quite hot, and homes are very desirable. Real estate typically begins at a higher price point in this neighborhood (in comparison to others in Santa Fe), with many luxury options available. 

The area is made up of some commercial areas, but is mainly residential, with single-family homes located on quiet, winding streets and some quaint condos. Some of the areas in the east have properties found on hillier regions that offer views of the city. Homes for sale generally begin at just under a million dollars, with properties that can go all the way up to double-digit millions, depending on the property. 

In regards to architecture, the Historic Eastside is famed for its historic adobe homes, although many of the properties are built in the Pueblo (or Pueblo Revival) style. Historic homes, as well, sell for higher (more luxurious) prices, but offer homebuyers something truly special. Many of the newer homes for sale have expertly mixed traditional and modern styles, often maintaining the historic feeling (with brown stucco exteriors, plaster walls, exposed beams, rustic finishes) with modern upgrades (contemporary kitchens, luxury appliances, detached garages). Some of the homes in the Historic Eastside have even been constructed by renowned builders and architects, and now house some noteworthy residents.

While many of the homes are one-story residences, there are some two-story homes to be found. As these are larger homes, they are generally luxury properties, with ample square footage, large lots, and outdoor spaces for entertaining. Historic homes for sale have been immaculately maintained, and are a great option as a vacation property.

Historic Eastside Community Highlights

Stretching east of the downtown area, down to St. John’s College, the Historic Eastside of Santa Fe attracts potential homebuyers and excited tourists for its great culture, historic buildings, and multitude of attractions.

One of the biggest draws of the area is Canyon Road, which runs right through the neighborhood. This is a popular tourist attraction, as the historic buildings house local boutiques, art galleries (over eighty in total), restaurants, and more. Canyon Road is a cultural hub with murals and brightly-painted doors and windows on buildings. There are even some historic walks around the area that are hosted for interested tourists. 

The Historic Eastside is known for its trees, landscaping, gardens, and overall preservation of natural features, and there are also a number of parks and trails in and around the neighborhood. These include large spaces with playgrounds for the kids, such as Patrick Smith Park, and the Dale Ball Trails in the east which take hikers into the mountains. The surrounding areas offer avid hikers and outdoor enthusiasts even more opportunities, including trails and campgrounds.

Kids in the Historic Eastside neighborhood can attend one of the many area schools (public and private), including the highly-rated Acequia Madre Elementary School or Rio Grande School.

Of course, this district is also located right up against the Santa Fe downtown. Residents can easily experience even more art galleries and museums, as well as shops and restaurants, just a short distance away. Theaters, local markets, historical landmarks, parks, and more all make up the beautiful city of Santa Fe!
