There are several private and public pools in Santa Fe that buyers of Santa Fe real estate can join or visit, however, there is nothing better than owning a home with a private pool.

The RCT real estate team is pleased to highlight one of our properties with a lovely private pool located at 3890 Old Santa Fe Trail. The property's two ensuite bedrooms open to a private refreshing 60-foot lap pool with a waterfall spillover at one end enhanced by a shaded portal. This property’s tranquil surroundings and design are reminiscent of a luxury resort— a swimmer’s oasis in the desert.


Of the current properties currently for sale with pools in Santa Fe, many of them are shared in a condo or community setting.
