Tesuque, NM Real Estate

Secluded village of stunning estates and incredible art
Among lush green piñon trees and sculpture gardens, hilltop vistas, and rolling foothills and valleys, the village of Tesuque echoes of a more bucolic time, a world apart from the dynamic energy of Santa Fe. However, though pastoral and picturesque, this census-designated place is in reality just a mere ten minutes north of the Santa Fe Plaza and the exciting arts’ culture of Downtown Santa Fe. 
Tesuque, New Mexico is named after the Tesuque Pueblo nearby, a small village tribe located on land occupied since 1200 A.D. Rural and horse-friendly, the community is also highly artistic and serves as a home for a variety of crafters, potters, painters, and other multi-media artists. The population remains small—under 1,000—and consequently, Tesuque, NM maintains its status as a secret cache gem sheltered in the red-brown landscape north of Santa Fe.
