About 44 Tesuque Ridge
Sugarloaf Mountain is a magical 13-acre property with a premier building site capturing panoramic views as far as the eye can see of Santa Fe and beyond. Originally thought undevelopable because of steep palisades surrounding the mountain, a long winding driveway was built across an engineered land bridge to capture the unbelievable 360-degree vistas. In the North, the Canyon Badlands of Colorado display frosted peaks in the distance. Looking West, the blue hues of the Jemez Mountains contrast with the orange glow of the ever-setting sun. Enjoy inspirational sunrises over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, which turn blood red at Dusk. Embrace sensational views of Tesuque, including the historic white Bishop’s Lodge steeple and the Santa Fe Opera House. Over 2,800 native plants from the NM Forestry were strategically planted across the property in a natural pattern. After the engineered walls and land bridge were built, underground utilities were run, including cable, electric, and gas. A water well was drilled atop the mountain to complete full access for all utilities. Other improvements were made to water runoffs with gabions and erosion control rocks and channels. Numerous hiking trails along the ridges and canyons are easily accessible. In the Fall, the mountain range is gilded in brilliant gold from the largest Aspen colony in the world. No matter the season, Sugarloaf offers the most dramatic views in Santa Fe, only six minutes from the historic Santa Fe Square.
