Neighborhood – Eldorado
An established bedroom community of about five thousand residents–a mix of families, retirees, singles and couples–with its own commercial center, elementary school and social/recreational center, Eldorado is only twenty minutes from Santa Fe and feels like a transition between city and country. It includes a small and pleasant shopping and office complex, a community recreation center, stables and good covenants, which feature a 1 acre minimum lot. Many lots have lovely views and native piñon and juniper vegetation. The Eldorado area includes many other subdivisions (Alteza, Dos Griegos, Los Vaqueros, Old Road Ranch, and The Ridges), with generally more expensive homes and larger lots. Other subdivisions may offer more interesting terrain or allow horse stables. Click to see properties in the area.
