Our property is located less than 1 hour from the unbelievable White Sands National Monument - a 'must see' when visiting the high desert of southern New Mexico. Also, plan to visit the White Sands Missile Range Museum on your way to or from the National Monument. The Museum traces the origin of the United States' missile and space activity, including the early history of the atomic age. You could also plan your visit to Las Cruces to coincide with the semi-annual open house dates of the Trinity Site located within the WSMR, the site of the world's first atomic bomb explosion. Of course, an afternoon (or evening) spent in the historic village of Mesilla is a must - there are charming restaurants and shops around the town plaza. The village was the site of Billy the Kid's murder trial and also was once a major stop on the Butterfield Stagecoach line. Mesilla is approximately 15 minutes 'down the mountain' from our location. Las Cruces is also home to New Mexico State University. NMSU plays host to many sporting and cultural events through out the year. Also, the gaming, horse-racing, and skiing activities of Ruidoso are less than two hours away. Last, but by no means least on the list of things to do in our area, is hiking! There are wonderful desert hikes on BLM land literally 'across the street' from this property and mountain hikes ranging from easy to difficult within 10 minutes. If you have rock-climbing interests, the craggy peaks of the Organs can be accessed. Of course, this listing of activities assumes you are interested in actually leaving the property which, we frequently find, is difficult to do!
Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Long-time university administrators who have relocated to another part of the country, we wanted to retain our home in Las Cruces because of the joy we experienced in the home, the quality of life in this great community, and in the hope that we can return full time to the beautiful high desert of southern New Mexico in the future.
Why the Owner Chose Las Cruces: One look at this property and you'll understand why we knew it was the home for us. It is truly unique both in its design and setting.
The Unique Benefits at this House: This home has it all but nothing compares with the magnificent view of the rocky peaks of the Organ Mountains from the back patio!
