Property Description

Located north-north east of Las Cruces in the shadows of the Organ Mountains sits this beautiful one acre parcel just waiting for the right buyer to come and settle their new home within its borders. Situated in the northern outskirts of the suburbs, this property is perfect for anyone looking for privacy as there are currently no nearby neighbors. Additionally, this property is so secluded it will likely guarantee you that same degree of privacy for years to come, as population growth is unlikely to swallow up this area with homes anytime soon.

Best of all, however, is that despite its seclusion, this location will put you only a short drive away from numerous parks and recreation areas including White Sands. Furthermore, this untouched desert oasis sits in close proximity to the thriving Las Cruces metropolitan area. This will make it very easy to take advantage of all the city has to offer while still being able to retreat to your own rugged western paradise at the end of each day.

Property Specific Notes:

This property sits north-north east of the Las Cruces suburbs. While you can get to this property by turning north off US 70 at Holman Road, it should be noted that this lot sits just past the developed residential area in a more secluded and rugged portion of the valley. Power lines stop roughly a half mile south of the subject property at a very nice home along Moongate. Additionally, roads out here will require a larger vehicle with off road capabilities.

It should also be noted that while legal access to the property is along Rabbit Run Road, our photographer reported difficulty accessing the land from this road and suggested two alternative paths. Watch the video at the top of this page or view the driving direction maps in the gallery at the bottom for further details.

This property is zoned D-1, a designation which means low density residential zone. Single family homes, whether site built, pre-fab, or mobile, may be used in this area. It should also be noted that the D-1 Zoning designation has no minimum square footage requirement, which means the construction of a tiny house may be permitted here. For more information about D-1 Zoning, see the PDF in the table below or contact the Dona Ana Community Development Office.

Given the distance to the nearest utilities, solar will likely be the best method of powering the home or structure you build on this property. As solar has become both more affordable and reliable in recent years, powering a house can be done with a much smaller unit than was previously necessary in the past. This may be complicated to set up at first, but the money you save both in getting power out to the lot, as well as in the monthly electric bills youll no longer have to pay, will likely make the effort worth it.

The Dona Ana County Assessor places the market value of this land at $6,000. Furthermore, in reviewing the comps for 1 acre lots within this county, we were unable to find anything that comes remotely close to this property price wise. Given the price-point, and the typically high costs of land in this region, we believe this lot can be an excellent way for both the casual buyer or a buy-and-hold investor to enter the Las Cruces real estate market.

This property was closed on and its title insured through New Mexico Land And Title.
