MONTE SERENO OVERVIEW
Monte Sereno is a master-planned residential resort community located within the prestigious northwest city limits of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Monte Sereno is considered one of the most desirable locations within Santa Fe for a myriad of reasons, the most significant include: proximity to the historic Santa Fe Plaza and world famous Santa Fe Opera, unsurpassed views in every direction and mature piñon and juniper trees offering exceptional privacy.
As the most northern point of the City of Santa Fe, Monte Sereno enjoys a full complement of desirable infrastructure, with city water and sewer, natural gas, cable TV and high-speed internet, buried telephone with DSL, paved roads, curb and gutter, and buried electrical with transformers.
The community sits on approximately 600 acres of land and is entitled for 275 residential home sites (averaging 1.7 acres), 55 smaller cluster sites, and a 36-acre parcel zoned Planned Resort – Residential Community (PRRC) which could accommodate up to a 250 room hotel/spa.
No property in Santa Fe is as well endowed with the full accompaniment of the views that set Santa Fe off from any other city in the U.S.
Starting with the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the east, Monte Sereno has stadium seating for what locals call “The Sangre’s” – which turn red at sunset as their palette catches the fading sun.
To the north is the vast area called “The Badlands” which stretch all the way to the New Mexico/Colorado border, and feature numerous landmarks like the Black Mesa on the Santa Clara Reservation, the lights of Española at night, and the vast stretch of land that encompasses all of Northern New Mexico – including views to the Colorado border.
To the west are the Jemez Mountains, which display both a depth and a breadth illuminated nightly by New Mexico’s spectacular sunsets – and the small canyons and pathways that lead to Los Alamos.
Lastly, to the south the Ortiz and Sandia mountains are glimpsed by a few of the home sites, as well as the night lights of Santa Fe.
