Small town feel with an eclectic twist.
Quiet and serene.
Single-family homes and farms.
Sitting in the northwest corner of Maury County, around 45 miles southwest of Downtown Nashville, Santa Fe is a charming rural community with a growing personality. The locals will kindly correctly if you pronounce the name like the large city in New Mexico. The community is known as Santa Fee (not Santa Fe like the town out west), though no one is sure why, and the residents are proud of its roots and distinctions.
You won't find condos, tall and skinnies, or apartments in Santa Fe, but you will find space to grow and room to breathe. Some of the oldest farms in Tennessee are here, and the housing options are semi-limited to single-family homes, many on large pieces of land.
Many in Santa Fe were drawn to the small town for its quiet and serene surroundings, eager for their own piece of land and way of life. Family farms are still prominent, and many farms have expanded to offer services beyond your typical produce or livestock. Farm to Table dinners set in beautiful landscapes are a huge draw for locals and visitor alike, and Forest Gully Farms offers a night away and a lesson in food foraging for anyone dipping their toes in a more earth-conscious lifestyle.
