In keeping with Santa Fe's overall architectural theme, Sand River homes are single story and in tradtional Territorial and adobe styles. Roofs are red and exteriors are sand colored. Each dwelling is green built and oriented for passive
solar. Some residences and the common house have rooftop solar panels. Houses do not come up for sale often, but when they do,
prices usually start in the low- to mid-$200,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices may change.
Xeriscaping, a combination of drought resistant, native plants and rocks, is common in the Southwest and is found throughout Sand River. A community garden and an orchard
add to the soothing atmosphere here. Colorful flower pots, covered front porches, wooden benches, rain harvesting barrels and the occasional wagon wheel adorn
A somewhat remote place, Santa Fe sits at 7,000 feet above sea level in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains' Sangre de Cristo mountain range and is renowned for
its music, architecture and cuisines. It exudes an ambiance not found in many other U.S. towns, as Anglo, Mexican and Indian cultures mingle with Catholicism and pagan
traditions, creating a slightly mystical ambiance.
Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center, the primary medical facility, is accredited by the Joint Commission and accepts Medicare patients.
The elevation here helps moderate the summer heat, but in July, temperatures can still reach the 90s or higher during the day. January temperatures can dip into the
20, but the average day temperature is 45 degrees. On average, the area receives 13 inches of rain and 25 inches of snow per year.
