5200 Old Santa Fe Trail
Truly a treasure of the American Southwest. Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, overlooking historic Santa Fe, New Mexico, the property showcases the unique, rustic beauty of the high desert. From the moment you enter through the unassuming front gates of this breathtaking estate, you experience why New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment. This 36 acre property provides a distinct backdrop for a magnificent estate that exemplifies the wonders of the Southwest. No detail was overlooked in the architecture ??? from the hand-forged wrought iron railings, diamond trowelled plaster walls, and custom cabinetry, to floors of imported stone, marble, ceramic tile, and hardwoods including hickory and quarter sawn oak. Large windows and skylights, custom draperies, light fixtures, and wooden beam vegas and latillas also add to the unique beauty of the interiors. The original home was built in the early 1940s. Over the next seventy years, additional land was acquired and assembled, the property was renovated and expanded, and the many site improvements and buildings were precisely designed and integrated into the current setting. Care was taken to maintain the integrity of the Pueblo-style architecture, which is symbolic of the area???s original inhabitants dating back as early as 1050 A.D.

The southeast of Santa Fe within the city limits comprises a multitude of neighborhoods:
Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside
With some homes dating back centuries, these neighborhoods boast some of Santa Fe’s most photographed adobe homes and gardens. Hosting a mix of multi-generational families and newcomers, the homes, often hidden behind high walls and accessed by narrow, dirt lanes, recall the city’s early history and lend Santa Fe a unique heritage. Views are scarce here, but authenticity and atmosphere dominate.
Long famous for the galleries, restaurants and specialty shops, Canyon Road has become one of Santa Fe’s most popular attractions. Upper Canyon Road has long-established residences and the Randall Davey Audubon Center, encompassing 135 acres and miles of hiking trails, a nature store, and the historic house of artist Randall Davey.
