The northwest of Santa Fe within city limits includes one of Santa Fe’s most affordable family areas – Casa Solana. With beautiful mature trees, sidewalks and paved streets, Casa Solana has a real neighborhood atmosphere. Gonzales Elementary School and the Casa Solana Shopping Center are within walking distance. The homes were built in the 1960’s by well-respected developer Allen Stamm. All include vigas, hardwood floors, fireplaces and solid construction.
As you travel down West Alameda from St. Francis Drive, the area’s homes begin to spread out a bit. Horse farms dot the landscape. Newly-constructed homes appear on large open tracts. Any left turn takes you down to the Santa Fe River and any right hand turn delivers you into the hills above Santa Fe. Some lots in the hills offer beautiful 360 degree views.
