Highland Estates is located just south of Tres Piedras near the intersection of US HWY 285 and US HWY 64. This is a nice level parcel with magnificent views and power one lot away.
Tres Piedras Tres Piedras lies less than 20 minutes northwest of Taos off highway 64. Named for three outcroppings of granite, the community was once a popular stop on the Chili Line railroad running between Antonito, CO and Santa Fe NM. With wide open spaces, Tres Piedras is a wonderful spot to build a permanent home or just visit with your RV. Either way you are encouraged to take advantage of all of the outdoor adventures the area has to offer.
Taos Nearby Taos, the world famous New Mexico arts town, sits in a masterpiece setting. It's wedged between the towering peaks of the Rocky Mountains and the plunging chasm of the Rio Grande Gorge. Located about 70 miles north of Santa Fe, this is a town of 6,000 residents. There are plenty of mainstream attractions -- Taos boasts some of the best restaurants in the state, a hot and funky arts scene, and incredible outdoors action, including world-class skiing.
The history of Taos may be much different if the railroad had not bypassed the area in favor of Santa Fe in the late 1800's. Soon after many artists began to migrate to the area to paint the dramatic scenery afforded by the unparalleled terrain. As time went on more and more artists of all disciplines began to move to the area forming a culture that remains today. It is estimated that 20-25% of all residents in the area are artists (painters, sculptures, writers, or musicians).
The city of Taos is merely the focal point of rugged 2,200-square-mile Taos County. Two features dominate this sparsely populated region: the high desert mesa, split in two by the 650-foot-deep gorge of the Rio Grande and the Sangre de Cristo range, which tops out at 13,161-foot Wheeler Peak, the highest point in New Mexico. From the forested uplands to the sage-carpeted mesa, the county is home to a large variety of wildlife.
