Residential Lots With Incredible Mountain Views

 

Near Deming And The Florida Mountains In Luna County, New Mexico

 

 

Luna County contains three mountain ranges: Cooke’s Range in the north, the Florida Mountains to the West, and the Tres Hermanas Mountains to the southwest. There are mountain views in every direction and every lot is near the Florida Mountains, which tower at 7,000 feet and offer incredible views. Every Ranchette has road frontage on a graded road and they are located 3 1/2 to 28 miles from downtown Deming. The properties are fairly flat with a mixture of local grasses and desert scrub. The subdivision is surrounded by 1000's of acres of state land which will help protect it from overbuilding and preserve the area and local wildlife.

Deming sits at 4,331 feet above sea level, has a population of about 14,000 people and is the geographic center and the seat of Luna County, New Mexico. It lies among irrigated fields and desert grasslands, with the Florida Mountains in the background. In the early days, Deming was called "the city of windmills," reflecting the community’s use of wind energy to pump water from large aquifers created by the nearby mountain streams. The arrival of the railroad in 1881 was a defining event for the community and a Harvey House was built to serve train passengers, and it became a social center for Deming. Part of the original building is still standing next to the Amtrak train depot.

The city of Deming is conveniently located with easy access to four major highways: U.S. 80, U.S. 70, Interstate 10 and State Highway 11. It has its own municipal airport and Amtrak offers transportation services to the city of Deming through the Sunset Limited Route which runs from California to Florida. Both investors and businesspeople enjoy this area because it offers a friendly business environment and is strategically located between Texas, Arizona, California, and Mexico.

The people of Deming take pride in their city and have plans in the works for several community improvements such as a downtown bike route system; enhancements to street, sidewalk, and park areas; a farmers market plaza; and art programs just to name a few. The area attracts many winter visitors looking for a moderate climate, laid-back atmosphere and favorable location.

You can play a round of golf at the Rio Mimbres Country Club18-Hole Golf Course, hunt domestic and exotic game in season, be a spectator at a nearby rodeo or enjoy wine-tasting at the St. Clair Winery.

And don’t miss Deming’s annual Great American Duck Race. This yearly event is held on the last week-end of August and duck owners are encouraged to participate in the main event. If you don’t own a fast thoroughbred duck, you can always participate in the highly competitive tortilla tosses and outhouse races.

There are many unique places to visit and things to see such as Rockhound State Park which is located right next to the subdivision in the Florida Mountains. Here you can camp, explore the rocky hills, and collect agate, jasper, quartz and geodes. Also nearby is the City of Rocks State Park with its strange and spectacular volcanic rock formations. An hour's drive northeast of Deming you’ll find Caballo Lake Reservoir and 10 miles upstream is Elephant Butte Lake State Park which has the largest lake in the state. Together these lakes offer a marina, water sports, boating, camping, and picnicking along with some of the finest fishing in the state. Also nearby are natural wonders such as the Gila National Forest, Chihuahuan Desert and White Sand National Monument.

The closest big city is Las Cruces, located about an hour's drive east. Las Cruces has a wide variety of things to do and is home to New Mexico State University. The Rio Grande River runs through the area offering water sports such as swimming, whitewater rafting, and skiing. From Las Cruces you can either head North to Albuquerque or South to El Paso.

You can also tour Spaceport America, northeast of Las Cruces or the visitors center in Truth Or Consequences.  It is "the world's first purpose-built commercial spaceport".  This is a source of great pride and optimism in New Mexico.  Virgin Galactic is expected to reach the level of 200 passenger flights per day.  That will mean approximately 1,600 tourists per day buying goods and services in New Mexico!

The surrounding mountains, state parks and national forests offer hiking, camping, biking, hunting and many other outdoor recreational opportunities.

These are undeveloped lots you can buy for investment, building, or to have a place to RV or camp while you visit the area. There are utilities in the area, but not to every unit nor to each property yet. For now water would be by haulage or well. Sewage would be by septic system - if and when you build. Cell phones worked almost everywhere when we were there. These lots are zoned Residential for Single Family Residences. If you have water and a septic system hooked up you can stay in an RV up to 240 days each year. If no utilities, you can stay up to 30 days each year. There are no association fees or dues, no time restrictions on if and when to build, and there are no unreasonable restrictions on what to build. Taxes are around $20 per year per lot and are current. There are No liens, back taxes, or encumbrances on the property.  The corners of the lots were marked with 5/8" rebar when they were laid out.

NOTE:  ½ acre lots may now be buildable!  Properties that are too small for a conventional septic system may now be buildable using advanced treatment systems or other options.  To determine whether a property smaller than ¾ of an acre can qualify for a residential build, please consult a liquid waste professional regarding the specific property that you are considering for purchase.  This web page maintained by the New Mexico Environment Department could be helpful to you:   https://www.env.nm.gov/liquid_waste/liquid-waste-professionals-2/      You can copy and paste that web address directly into your web browser’s address bar and press the enter key to go to that website.  You still will need a water well if you are not connected to a municipal water supply, and this is possible with a ½ acre lot if conditions are right for a water well and for an advanced treatment system.  You may also be able to use a well jointly with another land owner.  For more information specific to Luna County you can call the county building and planning department at 575-546-0494.  If you are looking for a place to camp or park an RV, this would not affect you except that your property might now be more valuable.
