Creating a Lifestyle at La Tierra Escondida | Las Cruces, New Mexicos Premier Green Community

Testimonials

As a custom homebuilder, I was recently challenged with the task of finding a truly special lot for one of my clients.  They wanted to be on the eastern perimeter of Las Cruces, have unobstructed views of the Organ Mountains, be at least one acre, and be affordable.

In the end it came down to sites up Soledad Canyon road, and sites in La Tierra Escondida, off of Las Altures drive.  I met with owners of La Tierra Escondida, Mitch and Judd, and they took the time to drive me around their subdivision, and show me several lots that met my client's exact needs.  They were more than patient with me and they answered all of my questions fully.  It was a pleasure being able to pick from numerous lots, which I thought were prime locations with every one having something unique to offer.

When I took my clients out they were leaning first towards the Soledad Canyon area because they thought it was an easier driving route to get into town.  The lots they saw out there were being heavily discounted, and they had a great view of the Organ Mountains.

It wasn't until I took them to La Tierra Escondida did they really appreciate the subdivision to it's fullest.  It was a prettier drive to them with great views of the "entire area" and they had several prime building sites to pick from.  They had all of this and most importantly it fell well within their budget.  They settled on a 1.6-acre lot, in the gated part of the subdivision, which has views of the Organ Mountains, but as an added bonus also views that include the lush Mesilla valley.  All of this, just minutes from the University, shopping, restaurants, and all of the roads were 100% paved.  This last item might not seem much but to my client, a retired Geology Professor, who still does projects with the University, it meant a lot to him to be so close to his work at New Mexico State University.

I have to say in the end it didn't come down to price only, but it was more about the quality of the subdivision, the spectacular views and the easy access to town.  Again, I have to Thank Mitch and Judd for their patience and their help in making La Tierra Escondida a place where my clients can call their home and feel truly good about their decision to buy.

Magnificent, breathtaking, and awesome are but a few of the words we use to describe the views from our living room.  To the west, we enjoy the early evening glow of the city lights, while the fresh early morning air adds to the true southwest feeling as the Organ Mountains tower above the horizon to our east.  From time to time, we witness wild game such as quail, coyotes, foxes, road runners and even mule deer on a couple of occasions. We enjoy our evening walks along the trail that meanders throughout the neighborhood of large estate size lots that provide real privacy. This is truly southwest living at its best!

As one of the premier custom builders in Las Cruces, I have enjoyed the opportunities that La Tierra Escondida has provided for the caliber of homes I build for my clientele.  La Tierra Escondida is always in top consideration for their home sites. They feel as I do about the many natural amenities, as well as the carefully thought out and much appreciated additions to the neighborhood.  Large lots and spacious open area with spectacular views are always the biggest consideration in my clients lot decision. Having a great selection of these types of lots always makes it easier for me to help the clients visualize their new home in La Tierra Escondida.

I am a Custom Home Builder in southern New Mexico. I want to tell you
about the great experiences that I've had building in La Tierra Escondida on
the outskirts of my hometown, Las Cruces....
.... Breathtaking views...
      ...large, private lots...
          .... Serenity within minutes of a major metro area...
And these are the amenities that you, the homeowner, find appealing! I can't
begin to tell you how fantastic the building experience is...
I believe that La Tierra Escondida is the best development in our area; done
by the best developers in the area. I've lived in a Singer/Hines subdivision
personally, and I've built in them professionally; I will tell you that their
standards of quality and excellence are unrivaled. They believe in strict
covenants, and they enforce those covenants, and their properties hold their
values.


Thank you so much,
JB

We purchased our property in La Tierra Escondida in 2009. Judd and Mitch took time out of their busy day to meet us at the particular lot that we were looking at. After discussing setbacks, covenants and the benefits to living in this area, we were certain we were making a great decision to purchase our 1.81 acre lot with the most spectacular views of the Organ Mountains. Soon we will build our rammed earth home on our property and join the peaceful community of La Tierra Escondida. This subdivision is truly a gem nestled in "The Hidden Land".
