Conveniently located between the culture of Santa Fe (35 miles) and the commerce of Albuquerque (15 miles), Placitas is one of New Mexico's oldest communities. Formed by the Las Huertas land grant of 1745, descendants of the original families still live here, giving the community an enviable historical continuity.
Gentle land, inspiring views. There is an overwhelming sense of place about Placitas. Sandia Mountains broods nearby, its uppermost meadows the first signal of season's change. There is the Jemez range to the north, the Rio Grande, distant mesas, juniper and pinon-covered hillsides and always-the sky. Placitas reflects this environmental bounty.
With the future in mind custom homes of indigenous architecture dot many ridge tops in Placitas. Yet, thanks to large minimum lot sizes, unpleasant density will never be a factor. Furthermore, just a tiny portion of Placitas is zoned for business and the commerce one encounters here - an art gallery, a small family grocery, post office, a cedar fragrance maker - hardly seem "commercial" in the usual sense.
