You could live & work in the city. But why?

You’ll have it all!

If you’re able to work remotely… are looking for a getaway or retirement home… or simply want to be where the air is clean, the water is clear and the lifestyle is amazing… you’ve found your new home!

You’ll live beautifully…

Whether you prefer to live near Elephant Butte Lake or along a stunning golf course fairway, you’ll find a perfectly beautiful place to call home.

… and you’ll play

Enjoy championship golf at Sierra del Rio Golf Course, where the fairways meander around the mesas and adjacent community, and the clubhouse invites you to relive your round as you relax at the 19th hole.

… day after day

Love the water? We have plenty of it at Elephant Butte Lake for boating, fishing, jet skiing, paddle boarding, kayaking & tubing!

… all year long.

Challenge yourself year-round with mountain biking, hiking & off roading in our high-desert and mountainous terrain.

You’ll love the lifestyle!

If you like to kick back and unplug, from time to time, you’ve found your new home.

You’ll relax…

Sunsets, time alone at the lake, spa treatments & hot springs are just a few of the many ways you’ll find to unplug.

… explore

You won’t need to go far to find bird sanctuaries, ghost towns and ruins.

…. & reach
for the stars!

Spaceport America, the Very Large Array and our night skies connect you with what’s “out there.”

You’ll live a life far from ordinary.

With the New Mexico’s largest lake… a challenging 18-hole golf course… and endless mountains and destinations to explore, you’ll live an active lifestyle like none other. You’ll be two hours from Albuquerque and just over an hour from Las Cruces, with plenty of shopping, restaurants, an excellent school system and a new hospital close to home. The sunsets and night skies are breathtaking, and our mildly changing climate brings you more than 300 sun-filled days a year.
