Eldorado at Santa Fe
Eldorado at Santa Fe lies about 10 miles southeast of the city on gently rolling terrain with expansive views. It is a dynamic community that began in the 1970's and today contains about 2,900 homesites. The homes range in price from the low $200,000's to over $600,000. The lots are 1.0 to 4.5 acres with probably 90% in the 1.3 to 2.1 acre range, many with native piñon and juniper vegetation. Street lights only exist in the areas of commerce. This allows the residents an unobstructed view of the beautiful New Mexico starry sky.
The one common band in this suburb is pride and support of its community. Eldorado homes for sale are in a clean well-maintained area with its own community center, pool, soccer fields, small commerce center, library, bike paths, dog park, tennis court, senior center, community garden, community school, medical and veterinarian, and emergency services. Participation in the community events is the resident's forte.
The community association is well represented and much gets done. Some of the events that occur each year are the Eldorado Arts and Crafts Association Home Tour, where over 100 artists open their homes to show their works. There is a 4th of July parade, and a school Halloween carnival, which earns a substantial part of the elementary school's extra-curricular classes funds. There is also a fun run, library ice cream social, silent auction, and community rummage sale. All of these are very successful and well attended. Eldorado is a great place to hike and bike because of its many "green belts" that were cleverly planned in the beginning of this community.
