1.6 acre residential lot, $100,000, MLS 201102397

Las Lagunitas is a gated subdivision located approximately 17 miles southwest of the Santa Fe Plaza just off of Highway I-25.  Las Lagunitas means “little ponds” in Spanish and is named for the numerous small ponds found on the property.  Surrounded by agricultural land, natural arroyos and diverse desert wetlands, Las Lagunitas contains lush bosque habitat which is fed by Guicu Creek.  A functioning acequia (a traditional Spanish irrigation ditch) runs through part of the property.

Las Lagunitas is characterized by rolling hills and breathtaking views of the Galisteo Basin and the Sangre de Cris, Jemez  and Ortiz mountain ranges.  It contains a preserved wildlife habitat, which includes a spring, numerous ponds, plum, pear and apple trees, and is a nature lover’s and birdwatcher’s delight.

Construction of the subdivision began in 1996, and occurred in 5 phases. Las Lagunitas contains 106 lots on 262.4 acres. Lots range from 1 to 3 acres in size. Approximately 90 acres are reserved as common areas for open space to be used and enjoyed by all residents of the community.

Public water is provided by the Sangre de Cristo Water Co. Electric service and natural gas are provided by the Public Service Company of New Mexico.  All utilities are buried which means there is nothing to interfere with the beautiful views of the natural surrounding areas and the brilliant New Mexico night skies.

Las Lagunitas is located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe off of I-25, which makes it a convenient location for commuting to both cities.

Shopping at Trader Joe’s in Santa Fe is just 20 minutes away, while Albuquerque is a 45 minute drive.

It is also near the 599 Bypass, which gives residents easy access to Los Alamos.

Wall Street Journal reports SmartMoney names Santa Fe one of the Great Places to Retire and Find a New Job, October 30, 2011

Edited by CHRISTINA LOUROSA-RICARDO

This article is syndicated from the Wall Street Journal on line, click here for a copy of the original article.

Not too long ago, the whole point of retirement was not working. But today’s retirees are increasingly counting themselvesamong the job seekers.

That’s why SmartMoney.com’s second annual survey of the best places to retire comes with a twist.  We’ve analyzed tax rates, cost-of-living numbers and real-estate prices to compile a list of less expensive alternatives to several traditional retirement hotspots. But this year we also combed for relatively low unemployment rates and thriving job opportunities for seniors.

Here are some of our picks:

Santa Fe, N.M. Unlike trendier Sedona,  an Arizona town often touted as a best place to retire, unemployment is just 5.3% in Santa Fe, thanks to the state capital’s thriving tourism business and government payroll.

Santa Fe is dotted with 240 art galleries and is the home of Art Santa Fe, an international art fair that attracts buyers and tourists from around the globe.

For retirees who want to work, tourism-related jobs are a good bet, says Steve Lewis, a spokesman for the Santa Fe Convention & Visitors
Bureau.

Lincoln, Neb. This is the quintessential Midwestern town—friendly people, college football and picturesque landscapes. Residents take a brimming pride in their city’s low crime rate and accessible natural beauty, including 10 nearby lakes and more than 99 miles of recreational trails.

And it boasts an unemployment rate of just 3.6%. The University of Nebraska; government jobs; as well as a
sizable corporate presence, including Kawasaki and Assurity Life Insurance, help keep employment stable. Housing prices have remained
relatively flat since 2007, with a two-bedroom home now running for about $115,000.

Portland, Maine. Portland’s culture and natural beauty rivals popular Northampton, Mass.’s, thanks to miles of coastline, the popular fishing area of Sebago Lake and a smattering of islands around the coast.

Unemployment is well below the national average, with many big employers, such as Maine Medical Center, TD Bank and clothing company
L.L. Bean.

Jupiter, Fla.Jupiter has pristine beaches, year-round warm weather, golf courses and shopping as does more popular Naples, but is about half the price to live in, according to data from Sperling’s Best Places.

With a jobless rate of 8%, Jupiter fares better than most of Florida. The area benefits from hosting the spring training seasons of the
Florida Marlins and St. Louis Cardinals baseball teams, as well as biotech companies like the Scripps Institute.

Santa Fe Market Report – The Airport Road Area

The Airport Road neighborhood is located in the Southwest section of Santa Fe.  Airport Road was once a semi-rural road leading out to the Santa Fe Municipal Airport.  It is now an area of condos, town homes and single-family dwellings that looks more like other U.S. cities than any other part of Santa Fe.  Airport Road is also a commercial corridor through the Southwestern end of the city.  Roads along Airport Road are paved, most streets have sidewalks and most houses have garages. Prices for homes in the Southwest section of Santa Fe, including in the Airport Road neighborhood, tend to be somewhat lower than the rest of Santa Fe.

Santa Fe Neighborhoods – Focus on Las Lagunitas

Gated Entrance to Las Lagunitas

Gated Entrance to Las Lagunitas

Las Lagunitas is a relatively recent gated subdivision located approximately 17 miles southwest of the Santa Fe Plaza.  Las Lagunitas means “little ponds” in Spanish and is named for the numerous small ponds found on the property.  Surrounded by agricultural land, natural arroyos and diverse desert wetlands, Las Lagunitas contains lush bosque habitat which is fed by Guicu Creek.  A functioning acequia (a traditional Spanish irrigation ditch) runs through part of the property.

Las Lagunitas is characterized by rolling hills and breathtaking views of the Galisteo Basin and the Sangre de Cristo, Jemez and Ortiz mountain ranges.  It contains a preserved wildlife habitat, which includes a spring, numerous ponds, plum, pear and apple trees, and is a nature lover’s and birdwatcher’s delight.

Early Native Americans must have appreciated the natural bounty, as there are protected excavation sites in Las Lagunitas where signs of Native Americans have been found.  Early settlers also must have appreciated the wetlands, as I am told that the old ranch house and barn in Las Lagunitas were Pony Express and stage stops.

 

Construction of the subdivision began in 1996, and occurred in 5 phases. Las Lagunitas contains 106 lots on 262.4 acres. Lots range from 1 to 3 acres in size. Approximately 90 acres are reserved as common areas for open space to be used and enjoyed by all residents of the community.

Residents of Las Lagunitas enjoy close proximity to the Lenora Curtain Wetlands Preserve, a 35-acre nature preserve maintained by the Santa Fe Botanical Gardens, which is located approximately 2.5 miles north of Las Lagunitas on the I-25 frontage road.  The Preserve has several hiking trails leading through three distinct plant communities: riparian/wetland, transitional, and dry uplands. It is open to the public from the beginning of May through the end of October and admission is free.

Also within 3 miles of Las Lagunitas, is El Rancho de las Golondrinas.  Once a historic ranch, now a living history museum, it dates from the early 1700s and was one of the most important stopping place along the famous Camino Real, the Royal Road from Mexico City to Santa Fe.

Electric service and natural gas are provided by the Public Service Company of New Mexico.  All utilities are buried which means there is nothing to interfere with the beautiful views of the natural surrounding areas and the brilliant New Mexico night skies.

Las Lagunitas is located between Albuquerque and Santa Fe off of I-25, which makes it a convenient location for commuting to both cities.

Shopping at Trader Joe’s in Santa Fe is just 20 minutes away, while Albuquerque is a 45 minute drive.

It is also near the 599 Bypass, which gives residents easy access to Las Alamos.
