PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

4.86 acres of land for sale 14 miles SW of Deming, New Mexico with power at the adjoining neighbors and a graveled road only 440' away! It's a pretty desert country setting with terrific views of the Florida Mountains and hay fields and a tree farm - wow is this a beauty! It's an affordable property to develop for a home, manufactured or up to 240 days RV use a year. Deming is about 45 minutes W of Las Cruces, NM between Tucson, Arizona and El Paso, Texas.

All of the photos were taken in May 2018 of the property and its surrounding views. Tangle Road aka B062 is an excellent graveled road 420' E. It doesn't look like the road has ever been bladed that 420' and you would need to blade that road for easy access. I easily found the property stake at the SE4. There's also a stake along Tangle Road at the SE corner of the adjoining lot that will help you locate this one. It sits 1/4 mile S of Sunshine Road SE which is a paved road. There is a cattle guard at the intersection of Tangle Rd and Sunshine Rd. So there's great access back to the town of Deming.

There is power running along Tangle Road on the opposite side of the street so about 420' E. It runs to the adjoining neighbor kitty corner NE as well. You would need to contact the local power and telephone companies for the cost to bring it to the property.



The property is flat and open with sandy dirt piled up around the trunks of the scattered mesquite trees with their screwbean flowers were blooming - pretty. It reminded me of the sandy hills on my property that build up around the junipers.





As I left the road to walk the short ways to the property I passed by this beauty, a vivid fuchsia colored flowering cholla. I've seen lots of yellow buds on them in Rio Rancho but this sure caught my eye as I don't think I have ever seen them flower before! I assumed the yellow waxy bud was the flower. So I did some research on cholla and it's found in SE and Central Arizona and W New Mexico.



For a few thousand years the unopened bud before the flower forms were harvested and dried over a fire to be eaten later in the spring time. They traded the surplus with their close by cousins. Apparently they taste something like an asparagus or artichoke heart. They sure sound like a lot of effort gets put into removing the prickly spines and I sure hope I spot it on a menu some day! I spotted a few chollas in the area that still had a few of these yellow buds that hadn't bloomed. But most had bloomed the most beautiful brilliant colored flower! I love the unexpected beauty of the desert!



There is a neighbor on the adjoining lot to the NE and another one across the street on Tangle which is a gorgeous desert home. I actually met both of these neighbors. I had looked at land a few parcels N and then drove to look at this property. It was hot outside and I had left Buddy in the truck before I drove to this lot and he still didn't want to get out so I let him stay in the AC truck with the windows part way down. Long story short when I went to pull away about 30 minutes later I realized that my boyfriend was not in the truck with me - he must have jumped out of that big truck!

I ran screaming and hollering up and down the road not really sure which property he was lost on. It took a good 10 minutes before I saw his beaming little face with his tongue hanging a long way out his mouth panting as it was 99* outside! If he wasn't a welcome sight. He's getting old and his hearings not what it used to be - poor little man! He had been outside quite a while anxiously trying to find me and he was so hot we headed back to the hotel for a washrag bath to cool him down. And that's how I met the neighbors - they came to help me look for my man! Oh what nice people!



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. The highest point reaches up to 7,295 feet at Florida Peak! Rockhound State Park sits in the Florida Mountains and is known for her rocks including quartz crystals, geodes, jasper, and perlite. You are allowed to take home up to 15 pounds!



To the SE are the Tres Hermanas Mountains near Columbus and the border of Mexico.



About 1/2 mile W is a pretty tree farm and in the far distance across the valley from the W to the SW are the Cedar Mountains which run for 20 miles!



To the NW are hay fields and Red Mountain in the distance.



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!



The property is zoned for a home, manufactured home or up to 8 months of RV use if you install an approved RV hookup. There is a link above to the zoning for you to read the specifics on developing the property. If you have specific questions not covered in the zoning you would need to call the Luna County planning and zoning for clarification. I have found them to be very helpful.

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 Columbus which sits on 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. It's a very agricultural area and a beautiful drive back to town thru the farm lands and crops!



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!

In April 2018 I attended the tax foreclosure sale here which inspired me to do some economic research on the area. I learned that in September 2017 the Fort Sill Apache Tribe was awarded an $800,000 grant from the federal government to help build a 3000 square foot convenience store and fuel station at its property in Akela which sits between Deming and Las Cruces on Interstate 10. I also wrote about the cool fishing places and mountains I've explored these past few years! Click here to read my blog!

I think this would be an affordable nice size chunk of land to develop in the beautiful desert country side with quick access back to Deming and power so close! Add a quality piece of land to your portfolio! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

Luna County New Mexico Including Deming and Akela Area Photos

Deming is located in the Southwestern part of New Mexico, 33 miles north of the Mexico border. It is about 30 miles west of Las Cruces and half way between Tucson, Arizona and El Paso, Texas along Interstate 10.

It is the county seat for Luna County. It is a land of ever present sun and flowing desert rocks and cacti. It is a rich agricultural area with beautiful cattle farms and crops of chilies, onions, cotton and pecans. It is known for 99% pure water. It is often called a rock hunters paradise.

The Florida Mountains offers a spectacular background to these wide-open spaces. It is matched by its friendly hospitality. The elevation is approximately 4335 feet making for desirable temperatures of around 90 degrees in the summer and 59 degrees in the winter. It is an arid climate with low humidity. Average rainfall is 9 inches. They receive occasional snowfall but it quickly melts. They are well known for their winters, offering plenty of sunshine and little rain to the snowbirds enjoying their RV's!

Rock Hound State Park is a favorite place for the locals to explore the Florida Mountains. Click Here for more information about Rock Hound State Park where you can hunt for quartz crystals, geodes, jasper, perlite, and many other minerals.

The population in Luna County and Deming was estimated in 2004 to be 26,129 and 14,647. It is a full service community with low cost of living, affordable taxes, municipal airport, hospital, library, 18 hole golf course, and a community college. It boasts of being home to the Great American Duck Race! It is a busy small town with plenty of restaurants, hotels and shopping available.

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!





In October 2015 I hiked into a canyon that was south of Cookes Peak and saw some fabulous petroglyphs in a cave!






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!



Deming is a small town of about 14,647 and Luna County has a population of about 25,000. 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 including a Rotary Club that meets every Thursday at 12:00 at the Rio Mimbres Country Club which happens to also be the 18 hole golf course (put that on my bucket place of Rotary meetings to attend), a civic center, public auditorium, schools and a community college.

Good timing seeing a man chip one to the hole in May 2018 at Rio Mimbres!



Unlike other border towns I haven't seen an influx of snowbirds in their RV's here. However I did see two new RV parks on the west side of the Florida Mountains when I was driving and it made me wonder if my neighbors had to get a variance permit to turn their property into an RV park. What I have seen are permanent snowbird who have retired here because they want to own their own piece of land and not an RV spot and it's affordable.

It's a dry arid climate with low humidity and an average high temperature in July of 95*. That's quite a bit cooler than Tuscon at 100*, Phoenix at 106* and Yuma at 107*. People with arthritis are drawn here because it keeps the swelling and inflammation down and this is something that I can certainly relate to and I'm 52!


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!”
