Santa Fe Neighborhoods – Focus on Villa de la Paz

Villa de la Paz

Villa de la Paz means “Peaceful Village”  in Spanish. This tranquil little haven tucked into the southwest side of Santa Fe certainly lives up to its name.  Development began in 1999 – 2000, for this well-established condominium subdivision, which was designed to provide the local community with affordable, quality, urban village housing.

The development contains 89 plotted lots on nearly 10 acres.  76 lots have already been built.  There are eight different floor plans to choose from, three single story and five two story, and all are two or three bedroom units.  The units start at 1,000 square feet and go up to approximately 1,800 square feet.  The housing is FHA approved, which gives buyers the opportunity to purchase these units with a low downpayment.

Park with gazebo and two benches

Villa de la Paz contains a beautifully landscaped park that is approximately 1 acre in size with a gazebo and benches, perfect for walking, contemplating nature or visiting with neighbors.

Peaceful walking trails weave through the subdivision, which also has two landscaped park-like retention ponds. The outdoor areas were planted with a beautiful selection of botanical plants that are drought resistinant and low maintenance.

The existing units in the subdivision are designed for maximum light and privacy with vaulted ceilings in the single story units and decks with mountain views in the two story units. Quality construction details include radiant heating, Pella Windows, tile floors, Kohler plumbing fixtures, and solid wood interior doors.  Protective covenants were created  to ensure that residents enjoy uniformity and consistency of style and design in their surrounding environment.

Walking Trail

The subdivision is self contained, with one entrance and one exit and contains ample public parking. Most units have garages.  Villa de la Paz has convenient shopping and enjoys many city services such as water, sewer, electricity and trash pickup.
