Custom homes on large view lots
The spectacular setting of Los Caminitos has inspired the creation of some of Santa Fe's most beautiful homes, many designed by well-known architects including Hugh Newell Jacobsen, Myron Goldfinger and Chuck Johnson.
To date, 48 houses have been built on the sizable, wooded lots that flank the community's eight roads. (There are 78 lots within the subdivision.) The various homesites offer views of the Jemez Mountains, Black Mesa and Los Alamos to the west, the Sangres and Santa Fe ski basin to the east and, in some cases, San Antonio Mountain at the Colorado border.
Unlike many planned communities, Los Caminitos boasts a variety of southwestern designs in varying shapes and sizes, although residences must be at least 2,100 sq. ft., while studios and casitas are limited to no more than 2,000 sq. ft. Recent home sales have ranged from the $700,000s to more than $2,500,000.
All proposed structures must first be approved by the Architectural Control Committee, which was established to maintain the standards outlined in the covenants.
