Los Caminitos is a gated community of 78 large, wooded lots (averaging more than 10 acres each) located in the rolling foothills above Tesuque Village, bordered by the Four Seasons Rancho Encantado resort on one side and the Santa Fe National Forest on the other.
The subdivision was created in the late 1970s from 1,400 acres of piñon and juniper forest in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The developers envisioned a private residential neighborhood governed by covenants that would limit the impact on the environment and maintain the rural character of the land.
In addition to native New Mexicans, Los Caminitos is home to people from many other parts of the U.S. and around the world. This diverse group includes retirees, working professionals and families with young children. The majority have their primary residence here, although there are many second home owners.
Despite proximity to Santa Fe and the highway to Los Alamos and Taos, Los Caminitos owners experience exceptional serenity and privacy, integrated into nature that is protected from future development. Views take in all of the surrounding mountain ranges as far away as Albuquerque and Colorado.
