Eldorado is a wonderful community and it is where I make my home. Great neighborhood that offers alot - community center with pool, community garden, miles of hiking and riding trails, magnificent views, large homesites and reasonable prices. We also have our open shoppong center with wide variety of stores and several nice restaurants.

The Eldorado Community School which covers K through 8 is considered by many to be the best in Santa fe. They are just completing a large expansion and renovation.

Please let me know they type of house you are looking for - size, number of bedrooms and baths and price range and I would be happy to send you a number of listings to consider. Feel free to call me with any additional questions. My cell is 505-414-5132

I live in El Dorado and currently have 4 of my children attending the El Dorado school. I am extremely happy wiith the school, the parent involvement and its staff. Our home is currently on the market but we will stay in the area becuase of the school. The neighborhood is "perfect" for kids. Soccer/football fields, running track, hiking trails, tennis courts, pool, community center, horse stables, play grounds, It is a good community to raise kids. We are close enough to the Pecos river and close enough to all the local stores and down town with out the traffic.

Hi Carol, Eldorado is a special community with beautiful mountain views, homes on 1 acre+ lots, a community center with pool and two small shopping centers. To learn more about the school system which now includes middle school, go to to find a report card on the El Dorado Community Shool. To get a feel of the activities going on in Eldorado, go to I have sold many homes in Eldorado and think that it certainly is worth your time to learn more about it. If I can be of help with more information, please contact me.

Eldorado is popular neighborhood, with homes on an acre or more of land, many on greenbelts with lovely views. The elementary and middle schools are highly rated, and the library is also quite good. The community has a clubhouse with an outdoor pool, playground and rooms in the clubhouse for a wide variety of community events. There are walking paths throughout the development and the commercial area has a great supermarket, post office branch, bank coffee shop, restaurants, etc.
Some people think the 15-minute drive into town is too long, while others think it's a short price to pay for arguably better house values and the peace and quiet you get. Definitely a neighborhood you should check out if you're thinking of moving to the area. Let me know if I can help you.
