What is Las Campanas in Santa Fe?
The community of Las Campanas is a highly prized jewel in the Santa Fe real estate world. This well planned, amenity rich, 4,700 acre community is located to the west of the city in a pristine setting surrounded by mountain ranges, and with convenient access to the city. Its Santa Fe homes offer exquisite artisanal craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail. Las Campanas’ unparalleled community features include two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, a luxurious Spa & Tennis Center, the top notch Las Campanas Equestrian Center, and the multi-use 46,000 square foot Hacienda Clubhouse.
Las Campanas is laid out in 17 unique neighborhoods, each with its own authentic and distinctive feel. Las Campanas real estate ranges in size from 1/3 acre to 5 acres, depending on the enclave, or individual neighborhood. Horses are allowed on the home sites. The community is gated and roving patrols keep an eye on the properties 24/7. Each enclave has its own covenants and design guidelines, with which to ensure the area’s rich Santa Fe character. While a few neighborhoods use Santa Fe city water, the majority of them draw from the Las Campanas state of the art community water system.
