Placitas NM is located just north of Albuquerque, but the mood and the atmosphere just couldn't be any more different.
You can expect to find larger homes here, on larger lots than in the city, many with views of the Sandia Mountains or panoramic views of New Mexico that are unparalled anywhere else in the metro area.

Placitas is much quieter than Albuquerque, and much more peaceful too. Many artists live there, and in fact it's only a quick 30 minutes from art galleries in Santa Fe New Mexico.
It's a quick drive into the Sandia Mountains if you like to hike or go for a drive, or if you prefer golf or the spa, Tamaya Resort is located closeby, just over the river on the Santa Ana Pueblo. Twin Warriors golf course has a challenging 18 hole golf course that winds around 20 ancient cultural sites. Tamaya Mist Spa and Salon is there too plus the Corn Maiden restaraunt.
Of course the city of Albuquerque is quick drive too for things you may want to do there.
Most of the luxury homes in Placitas have at least some southwestern style to them, even if they're somewhat more contemporary in design. The houses are not cookie-cutter city houses, each one seems to have it's own personality.You're likely to see homes with vigas and kiva style fireplaces, and you won't find many red brick homes here, most of the houses are frame and stucco.
The best luxury properties start with the best lots of course, so finding the right house in Placitas means you need to closely examine what both house and lot have to offer. Search land for sale in Placitas.
Placitas is a great place for professionals, retirees and second homes.
