1 acre of land for sale about 9 miles SW of Deming, New Mexico with power only 1/2 an acre away. It's a pretty countryside setting with lots of groves of trees and farms in the area in Luna County. There's great access to the property and fabulous views of the Florida Mountains! 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. The property is made up of two adjoining 1/2 acre lots which we are selling together. West Spruce Street is a graveled county maintained road along the south as seen in the photos. The parcel map originally called the road San Juan but its common to see the names have changed over the years. It one street S of Monte Vista Street which is the main drag back to the highways that take you N into town so excellent access just one block south of a main drag!

The closest power is 1/2 an acre south and we highlighted this in the aerial photos. You would need to contact the local power company for the cost to bring it to the property. The property is fairly open with a bit of a sandy soil and scattered tall mesquite trees. There were wild flowers blooming about the area and pretty yucca scattered about neighboring properties. I thought it was a very pretty area with the groves of trees at many surrounding neighbors and the tree farm to the east. I wish I had been taller to get a better view as the shrubbery is pretty tall.

There are gorgeous views of the jagged peaks of the Florida Mountains from the NE all the way to the SE. They sit across the other side of the valley about 9 miles east of this property as seen in the section map. Each square on the section map represents one square mile. The highest point reaches up to 7,295 feet at Florida Peak! I love to photograph this mountain no matter what side of it I am on especially her sunsets!

Rockhound State Park sits in the Florida Mountains about 12 miles east 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!

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 think this would be an affordable property not too far from town for a snowbird to hang out in their RV or retire in the sunny warm southwestern desert! ! 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!
