…in the softly rolling foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains
Bishop’s Lodge Hills is situated just 3 minutes north of Santa Fe’s Plaza, in the softly rolling foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Its 200 acres offer ample piñon forested lots that range from 1 to 3.3 acres, and afford magnificent views of the Rio Grande Valley and the hauntingly beautiful Jemez Mountains. The Bishop’s Lodge was established in the mid-19th century as the country home of Bishop Lamy, (memorialized in the classic Willa Cather book, “Death Comes for the Archbishop”), in the Rio Tesuque Valley, which was valued for its natural beauty and prime location. Today, residents relish that lush landscape and take advantage of proximity to the lodge, while choosing from the countless amenities that the city of Santa Fe provides.
Bishop’s Lodge Hills sits next to the Santa Fe National Forest’s miles of mountain hiking trails. Underground utilities mean that the panoramic views are unfettered by electrical wires. Accessible amenities include paved roads and a security gate. Thoughtful homeowner’s design covenants preserve the unique local architecture style that is so treasured in Santa Fe properties.
Luxuriate in the 2 private pools and hot tub complexes. Hit the slopes at the Santa Fe Ski Basin’s alpine and Nordic trails, which is 4 miles uphill, then relax with a spa treatment or massage at Ten Thousand Waves Japanese Spa, on the way back down. Equestrians will appreciate The Stables At Bishop’s Lodge, where they saddle up for riding lessons, daytime trail rides and evening sunset excursions. In the summertime, music lovers make a beeline to the popular open air Santa Fe Opera for traditional and contemporary productions.
Residents can ski in the morning, browse the fine art galleries of Canyon Road in the afternoon, dine at one of the many sumptuous Santa Fe restaurants in the evening, and return home to contemplate an unparalleled New Mexico sunset. Or enjoy nearby award-winning golf courses, museums, music venues, and shopping. This gracious community of upscale Santa Fe homes satisfies the need for privacy, space, and luxury, all mere minutes away from the rich art and culture of The City Different.
