Albuquerque Real Estate Information -
Placitas real estate

Popular location for large lots in a rural setting is around the village of Placitas, about thirty minutes north of Albuquerque. Placitas has been growing "bedroom" community for the Metro area. Conveniently located between Santa Fe (36 miles) and Albuquerque (15 miles), Placitas was formed by the San Antonio de las Hertas land grant of 1745. The name means "little plazas," cultural centers of the Spanish villages. Sandia Mountain looms nearby, and other features include the Jemez range, the Rio Grande, juniper and pinion-covered hillsides and always, the blue New Mexico sky.

Placitas is an ideal site for many of New Mexico's favorite outdoor activities: hiking, biking, horseback riding, picnicking, golfing, skiing, and sightseeing. Far from the crime and other problems of big-city life, Placitas is simply a great place to live. Expansive homes dot the high desert rolling hills, yet thanks to large minimum lot sizes, density is not a factor.

Each year the Placitas Artists Series presents a program of concerts by the Helios String Quartet. Community art shows, the traditional posada at Christmas, the 4th of July parade and homeowner gatherings provide additional social opportunities. Of course, the vibrant cultural lives of Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and even Taos are within easy driving range.
