Before I-25 was built, the Old Las Vegas Highway was the main road from Santa Fe to Las Vegas, New Mexico. Long before that, the route from Las Vegas to Santa Fe prospered as stops on the Santa Fe Trail.
Lovely little communities and villages abound in this area of Santa Fe: Seton Village, Arroyo Hondo and Sunlit Hills among them. Despite being only ten minutes from town, the atmosphere is rural and the views of the Cerrillos Hills, Ortiz Mountains and Jemez can be glorious. The lots tend to be generally 5 acres or more.
perfect for horse owners, Arroyo Hondo is known for its level terrain and large, open meadows. Arroyo Hondo has great southern and western views.
The Arroyo Hondo Open Space consists of 87 acres north of the Arroyo Hondo, located approximately 7.5 miles south of downtown Santa Fe. Hiking trails from two trailheads provide access to panoramic view of the Galisteo Basin, Cerrillos Hills, Ortiz Mountains, and the Arroyo Hondo. The Arroyo Hondo Pueblo site and the historic dam can be seen from vista points.
Just east of Arroyo Hondo and in the foothills, the Pinon and juniper cover increases and many hills have dramatic rock outcroppings. Lots range in size from 2.5 to 10 acres.
Seton Village is a historic site in Santa Fe, New Mexico and the location of Ernest Thompson Seton’s home, Seton Castle and where he ran training camps for youth leaders and had a small press. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965. The village has a view of the Jemez Mountains and Mount Taylor.
Sunlit Hills offers pastoral settings, generally 5 acre lots. Many of the homes built in this area are typical of the Santa Fe style and are nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Ricky and Cathy represented us a sellers and did a terrific job from the outset of setting the asking price, advising us as to how to show the house, guiding us through the inspection process, and finally closing the deal. They checked in with us throughout and stayed on top of things until closing. Very pleased!
Super knowledgeable of the Santa Fe real estate market. Well connected to the broker network. Depth of experience showed in everything from pricing, staging, negotiations, to closing. Truly appreciated their professionalism in working FOR us. We felt we were in good hands while both buying and selling with Ricky & Cathy. They are a team that we would work with again.
Ricky and Cathy were absolutely professional, knowledgeable, and could not have been more helpful. We recommend them without reservation. They listened to us, showed us everything that fit, negotiated carefully on our behalf, and handled the escrow and closing flawlessly.
We started with another realty group and agent team and then switched to Ricky and Cathy. In the midst of a pandemic, and the unique characteristics of our home, Ricky and Cathy showed the kind of steady hand that got the job done. Ricky listened very carefully to our needs and what we thought were the strengths of the home and then those things were highlighted in the online and printed materials, as well as during showings. Their manner was always respectful to us and potential buyers. They responded quickly to questions and concerns. I would highly recommend them for selling any property in the Santa Fe area. We are grateful for their efforts.
