Santa Fe Neighborhoods – Focus on Las Campanas

Las Campanas

Las Campanas

Located 10 miles northwest of the Plaza on a high plateau overlooking the Santa Fe Valley, Las Campanas  is a master-planned residential community containing 1,717 home sites spread over approximately 4,730 acres.  Las Campanas was developed by Lyle Anderson in the 1980s as a luxury, amenity laden development and was a part of his golf course resort empire, which included Desert Highlands and Desert Mountain in Scottsdale, AZ, Superstition Mountain near Phoenix, AZ,  Hokuli’a in Hawaii and Loch Lomond Golf Club in Scotland.

Las Campanas has two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, the Sunrise Course built in 1993 and the Sunset Course built in 2000, an Equestrian Center, a full service Spa and Tennis Center and the Hacienda Clubhouse.  Enjoying magnificent views of the Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Ortiz and Sandia mountains, this gated community is a favorite destination for golfers, tennis players, horseback riders and owners that want to enjoy a peaceful and serene southwestern lifestyle.  Bright sunshine, dry, cool mountain air and spectacular sunrises and sunsets are features of daily life here.

There are 17 distinctive neighborhoods in Las Campanas, which are generally divided up into various areas termed “Estates”.  The lower number Estates generally tend to be closer to downtown, while the higher numbered Estates tend to be further away.  Depending on where you are in Las Campanas, it is about a 15 to 25 minute drive to downtown Santa Fe.

Las Campanas homes are built in a variety of architectural styles, including Spanish pueblo, territorial, contemporary, ranch, log cabin and northern New Mexico pitched roof.   Homes range from approximately 1,600 square feet to over 12,000 square feet in size and are generally one level.  The majority of homes are between 3,000 square feet and 5,000 square fett in size.  Lot sizes range from approximately ¼ acre sites to over 5 acres and prices range from the low $400,000s to over $10 million.

The Design Review Board at Las Campanas helps to maintain consistency in the aesthetic character of the neighborhoods. Courtyards, gates, beamed ceilings, hand troweled plaster, portal covered outdoor spaces and beautifully landscaped gardens are traditional features of Las Campanas homes
