Home in Las Campanas area of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Las Campanas offers resort and lifestyle communities in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with an outdoor-centric heart.

West of Downtown Santa Fe and towards the resplendent green of the Santa Fe National Forest, the neighborhoods of Las Campanas and La Tierra Nueva are private, gated communities developed to provide a lush, exclusive place to enjoy the majesty of New Mexico’s abundant natural beauty.

Basking in the radiant blue skies, ensconced in sunlight, La Tierra Nueva was developed in the 1980s and lies atop the Caja del Rio Plateau. Its sprawling plots of land typically encompass 10 to 28 acres, providing a haven for owners who crave the solitude of rural, scenic living amid incredible golf courses. Yet, despite jaw-dropping views of Santa Fe’s mountains and ample terrain to explore, La Tierra Nueva is still just a short distance from the cultural mecca of Downtown Santa Fe.

Tucked into the rolling hills nearby, Las Campanas’ residents also enjoy the perks of residing in a gated golf community: world-class golf courses, one of Santa Fe’s premier country clubhouses, and ample amenities. Created in 1992, the neighborhoods of Las Campanas also offer larger-than-normal plots of land and evoke a sense of luxury.

The residential housing in both communities consists primarily of lavish new-builds and single-family homes, which often blend the distinctive Territorial Revival architecture of Santa Fe with a modern, contemporary feel. Houses are drawn from the landscape itself: crafted in shades of desert sand and cloud white, featuring plenty of organic lines, open space for light, and luxe finishes.

What to Love

  • Large plots of land
  • Resort-style living
  • New-build houses with elite finishes
  • Rolling stretches of beautiful terrain

People & Lifestyle

Cache, hidden gems apart from the rest of Santa Fe, privacy is highly valued in Las Campanas and La Tierra Nueva. The population is incredibly outdoorsy, often taking advantage of the equestrian centers and trails, hiking locations, serene meadows, golf courses, and plentiful space. Relaxation and wellness are two other central pillars of the community, both featuring spas, rejuvenation, and fitness facilities that allow residents to maintain a holistically happy lifestyle.

Things to Do

Both communities place a high value on residential involvement and have created engaging programs to complement the lifestyle. At Las Campanas, the neighborhood hosts Learning and Enrichment nights, which offer classes on a variety of subjects, including cooking, wine tastings and pairings, and local history lectured by experts on a wide variety of topics.

Of course, if you’re hoping to live in a golf resort community, the primary allure for activity comes from the courses themselves. Las Campanas is home to not one but two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses. Ranked among the top golf courses in the entire state, the courses at Las Campanas provide unbelievable vistas of the mountains and a rugged hillscape with tee settings varied enough to suit all abilities.
