West Mesa Real Estate

West of the city of Las Cruces are Mesilla and Mesilla Park. Mesilla is a historic community comprised of neighborhoods adjacent to its historic plaza and the larger-acreage homes nestled in the surrounding pecan groves. Moving further west after crossing over the Rio Grande, you will find the Rasaff Hills and Picacho Hills neighborhoods, which sit on the West Mesa and offer stunning views of the Mesilla Valley and Organ Mountains by day and the “city lights” by night. Rasaff  Hills is a little less formal in structure and has a rural feel. Picacho Peak is the predominant landmark for the Picacho Hills area. Picacho Hills has several neighborhoods surrounding Picacho Hills Country Club and its championship golf course. Barcelona Ridge, Butterfield Ridge and Coronado Ridge are established custom home communities with single-family residences, comfortable lot sizes, and patio homes. The newest community, Picacho Mountain, retains the natural beauty of the gentle hills and is a mixture of single-family and patio homes. Picacho Mountain has been designated a “green build” community.

The West Mesa areas are served by Doña Ana County safety departments. The developments are part of the Las Cruces Public School District, with elementary and middle schools and Mayfield High School nearby. Shopping is about ten to fifteen minutes east of the West Mesa communities. The west side is near all necessities but is distanced from city center, providing a bit of a rural atmosphere.
