Santa Fe Neighborhoods – Focus on Bellamah

Bellamah

The Bellamah neighborhood is located in the southwest section of the City of Santa Fe.  Its boundaries are, in general,  West Rodeo Road to the south, Richards Avenue to the west, Cerrillos Road to the northwest, Siringo Road to the north and Yucca Street to the east.

In 1959, the City of Santa Fe annexed 600 acres so that  Dale Bellamah, the famous residential real estate developer and builder from Albuquerque, could build this neighborhood.   Bellamah began building homes in Albuquerque in 1947.  A booming post-war housing market and aggressive advertising led to his success.   His company, Dale Bellamah Homes, ultimately developed subdivisions in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, Hobbs,  Alamogordo, Las Vegas, and Santa Fe, New Mexico, as well as El Paso, Texas.

The Bellamah neighborhood features affordable, rectangular, one-story, suburban homes with elements of Santa Fe style on wide, curvilinear streets.   The homes are known for their logical floor plans, flat or pitched roofs, garages or car ports, larger lot sizes and many practical conveniences.

Bellamah’s advertisements touted the modern conveniences built into each home, such as an attached garage or car port and a garbage disposal.   These homes were designed to appeal to median income families.  Brochures promised a  house with conveniences to save the homemaker from the “drudgery of household chores”, which would  free up the homemaker’s time for family, self-development, and community activities.

“Advertising high quality construction at a value price, Bellamah began offering a money back guarantee on all home sales.  .  .  These homes were meant to be domestic retreats for working class and middle class families, and Bellamah had no trouble selling them.”  Source:  Rocky Mountain Online Archive.

Residents of Bellamah enjoy the many parks in the area, including General Franklin E. Miles, which is one of the largest parks in the city. General Franklin E. Miles has basketball courts, volleyball sand pits, children’s playgrounds, a skateboard area and grass for picnics.  Francis X. Nava Elementary School sits at the edge of the park at 2655 Siringo Road.  The Herb Martinez Park has tennis courts, a cement outdoor hockey area, a baseball field and grass that is often filled with soccer players.

The city’s popular Arroyo Chamisa hiking/biking trail is located in Bellamah, which runs from Rodeo Road past the Monica Lucero Park on Avenida de las Campanas and then passes across Camino Carlos Rey and ends at Yucca Street.   The Santa Fe University of Art and Design  borders the Bellamah neighborhood to the northeast.
