1/2 acre of land for sale about 11 miles SE of Deming, New Mexico with stunning views of Dragons Ridge and Needles Eye in the Florida Mountains, an intermittent stream thru the property and power close! Wow was this one a beauty only 2.5 miles from Rock Hound State Park! It’s a rural area close to Interstate 10 in sunny warm Luna County. Deming is about 45 minutes W of Las Cruces, NM between Tucson, Arizona and El Paso, Texas. It is a dry, warm, breezy climate making the temperatures surprisingly comfortable for the desert!

All of the photos were taken in July 2017 of the property and its surrounding views. Conchas Road is a graveled road that leads along the N of the property. It's been improved all the way to the intermittent stream which sits on the east side of the property so make sure you come in from the west! There's a street sign marking it as seen in the photos. It sits 2 miles S of Stirrup Road, the main road thru this part of the valley, and then its graveled road the rest of the way.

There is power 5 lots W along Roja Road by lot 39 and we marked this in one of the aerial photos. You would need to contact the local power company for the cost to bring it to the property. The closest neighbor is 2 lots to the south and it looks like they are using solar. The area remains undeveloped for now with lots of privacy!

I thought the coolest part of the property was the big intermittent stream that flows thru the property. Of course I spent a few minutes roaming thru the creek looking at the different colored rocks and keeping an eye out for snakes! I found a gorgeous green rock - I believe its called a Rhyolite rock which is formed during eruptions and banded with another color. I took it home and added it to the rock collection on my desk for good energy!

The second best part about the property is the view of Needles Eye in the Florida Mountains! And wow what a view of the mountains there is. As you can see in the aerial photo the property sits tucked in against them in a big bowl shape from the NW to the S and back up to the NE! They are so close up and big and you can see her jagged peaks called Dragons Ridge as it looks like a dragons back! Wow is it a pretty view of her from this part of the valley!

Rockhound State Park sits in the Florida Mountains and is known for her rocks. It offers trails, unique geology, wildflower displays, and a peaceful campground. Rock hounders can hunt for quartz crystals, geodes, jasper, perlite, and many other minerals. You are allowed to take home up to 15 pounds!

There is a great view of the open valley from the NW to the NE looking across to the town of Deming. To the N is a pretty view of Cookes Range with Cookes Peak at 8408 feet. In October 2015 I hiked into a canyon that was south of Cookes Peak and saw some fabulous petroglyphs in a cave and included a video of it below!

Cookes Canyon, a passage way thru the mountains, was part of the 3,000 mile historic southern mail route called the Butterfield Trail that began in Tennessee and ended in San Francisco. There are so many things to explore here, old abandoned mines and the famous Fort Cummings used in the 1800s to protect from Indian raids. Cookes Range Wilderness Study Area, petroglyphs at Massacre Peak and waterfalls at Black Rock Canyon are just a few things to see nearby. It's also home to the City of Rock State Park which I visited for my first time in July 2017!

The property is zoned for a home or manufactured home and limited RV use. In January 2013, I asked the zoning department about RV use. I was told that on 1/2 an acre, if you had an RV with no utilities on site, that you can stay up to 30 calendar days a year in your RV. If you had a septic and well with a source of electricity that you can stay up to 240 days a year with a permit that is free from their office. That source of electricity can be an alternative energy like solar. We included a link to the county zoning ordinance under the Zoning information at the top of our listing so you can read further.

Deming is a small town of about 14,647 and Luna County has a population of about 26,129. It’s about 60 miles west of Las Cruces, NM and 33 miles N of the border of Mexico. Besides the low cost of living and affordable taxes, it offers a municipal airport, hospital/ambulance service, nursing home, senior citizens center, library, over 40 churches, over 80 listed organizations, 18 hole golf course, civic center, public auditorium, schools and a community college.

Many retirees and people with arthritis are drawn to this area because of the affordability of land and the dry arid climate with low humidity. The warm sunshine keeps the swelling and inflammation down and this is something that I can certainly relate to and I'm 52! I often talk to people about the Deming area which sits close to the border of Mexico

I spent several years taking pictures of these mountains before someone pointed out to me the big hole in the rock called Needles Eye and the Dragons Ridge. Wow what a pretty spot to be a snowbird or retire in the sunny warm southwestern desert! Your own chunk of land to hunt for rocks on and stare at the Florida Mountains and wonder how the needles eye got up there! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

The Center for Innovation, Testing, and Evaluation (CITE) Plans to Build It's $1 Billion Futuristic City Near Deming, New Mexico!

The Center for Innovation, Testing, and Evaluation (CITE) is set to be build their $1 billion futuristic research city near Deming, New Mexico. It plans to have green energy powering the buildings, self-driving cars navigating the tree lined streets, with schools, high-rises and suburbs meant for a population of 35,000 that will never actually live there! Wow!

Yep that’s right, it’s a research city with visions of renewable energy sources like solar, wind, geothermal and bio power plants running side-by-side with new forms of water treatment and cyber-security projects. It expects to employ 350 people directly, and up to 3,500 contractors will be hired to supplement them.

I’ve spent quite some time researching the exact location and I’ve found a few different reports but all say along the Interstate 10 corridor straddling Luna County and Doña Ana County and will encompass roughly 18 square miles. I contacted the planning department and they said they did not have the location yet but something was going on at the county planning…or something like that!

Click here to read more about this project on CITE’s website. I suggest you scroll towards the bottom to watch some pretty informative videos! I’ll keep you updated as I find out more information! It sounds like Luna County might just “Meet George Jetson!”

A video I made of my journey to Luna County in October 2015. Buddy and I hiked into a canyon to see petroglyphs in a cave! Wow was that fabulous!
