Funny, I was out for a drive yesterday and drove through Chupadero! There are NO amenities. It has windy streets, looks like an old settlement (which it is). Research water issues if you do decide to pursue further - I think they had some well water issues a few years back.

I fell in love with a house out in Chupadero a few years ago, but we ultimately decided against it. It's charming and green out there, if a bit scruffy in places, but it is near nothing and winter weather could pose a problem with access. It's purely residential/agricultural out there. Tesuque Village Market and El Nido notwithstanding, you'll be driving into Santa Fe for all commerce. There's a grocery store in Pojoaque, but I don't know that it's really any closer than, say, the Albertson's at DeVargas Mall.

I think it's safe, but that's probably because no bad guys want to go to the trouble to drive out there. As beezle1 said, and as with anything outside of Santa Fe city limits, you'll want to really lock down the water issue.

I lived in New Mexico for a few years. You should spend some time there and "meet the neighbors". Some of those little communities are "insular".

It's not scary - but like another poster said, it's a bit scruffy. Probably around 15-20 minutes from Santa Fe shopping, etc., and no more than 10 minutes from the highly rated Tesuque Elementary school and the great Tesuque Market. I'm not aware of any water issues as long as you don't need to drill a new well, as that area is part of the Aamodt settlement.

Back in September, 2012 Santa Fe County agreed to incorporate the Chupadero Area water system once the recommendations of an engineering study were completed. The final preliminary engineering report was submitted in April of 2018, but I don’t know the status of the project. Still, with the area being or soon-to-be served by the Santa Fe County water system, it should alleviate any future water issues in that community. Needless to say, water is always an issue in New Mexico and throughout the southwest.
