Santa Fe Neighborhoods – Focus on Sunlit Hills

Sunlit Hills

Sunlit Hills

Located in the Old Las Vegas Highway Corridor (along Old Las Vegas Highway to Highway 285 south) and approximately 9 miles southeast of the Santa Fe Plaza, Sunlit Hills is a community of approximately 300 homes set in a rural location on primarily dirt roads.  Most lots in Sunlit Hills average 5 acres or more. Sunlit Hills has a rolling terrain of hills and ridges, many with excellent pinon and juniper tree cover.  Not surprisingly, most homes in Sunlit Hills either sit on a sun soaked hill top with wonderful vistas or in a shallow valley with beautiful light and color.

Sunlit Hills enjoys the services of the Sunlit Hills Water District (which also services Hondo Hills), eliminating the need for private wells in most cases.  It also benefits from having few street lights to interfere with our brilliant northern New Mexico night skies.
