One of the big draws to the Picacho Hills area is the views and the amazing dark skies at night. Being on the western mesa you can see the entire Mesilla Valley and the full Organ Mountain Range. Also, it is a master-planned community that sits in the shadow of Picacho Peak, so views of this mountain are always abundant.
Overall, this is a very outdoor-oriented and active community. The area affords plenty of opportunities for activity. For example, Picacho Peak Recreation Area is just minutes away and offers upwards of 15 miles of trails, including a one-and-a-half mile trail to the peak of the mountain. This provides plenty of opportunities for walking, jogging, hiking and even horseback riding. Also, as a resident of Picacho Hills you will have the option of joining the country club, which offers a beautiful 18-hole championship golf course, 6 tennis courts, a swimming pool, and a full-service restaurant.
Living accommodations range from condos and townhomes starting in the mid $100’s up to luxurious million-dollar estates. Within the Picacho Hills area there are several gated communities that each have their own HOAs. If you aren’t able to find a home in the resale market that suits your desires, but you love the Picacho area, there are still plenty of home sites available in a wide variety of sizes if you are open to the idea of building.
So, if you are looking for that million-dollar view, beautiful dark skies at night, and would like to be a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of the city, Picacho Hills might be a good fit for you.
