Residential Lot With City Utilities

Close To Elephant Butte Lake
Located in the lower Rio Grande Valley of south central New Mexico, Elephant Butte Lake State Park is the largest and most popular state park in New Mexico. Commonly referred to as "The Butte," the lake plays host to exciting activities all year round. On a warm summer weekend, lake-goers come from all over for swimming, sailing, fishing, tubing, water-skiing and, of course, soaking up the sun while relaxing on the sandy beaches. Additionally, the town doesn’t only thrive in the summer months. Thanks to the mild climate, and enhanced by special seasonal events, activities continue on into the fall, winter and spring, making this a vibrant spot for locals and tourists alike.

This half acre lot, situated just two miles from the Lake in the charming community of Elephant Butte, is perfect for anyone looking to take advantage of all this area has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a property on which to build a seasonal vacation home, a relaxing small town in which to retire or are simply searching for an ideal spot to build your next lucrative AirBnB venture, this property has it all.    

Property Specific Notes:

  • This half acre lot is located along Rio Grande Circle. It has paved road access, power at the lot line, and sits in an area where all nearby homes are connected to city utilities. Additionally, it is located less than two miles from Elephant Butte Lake and State Park, the largest body of water in New Mexico. Living this close, you’ll be able to enjoy leisurely strolls to the marina, or a relaxing bike ride.

  • This property is located in the Lake Shore Estates 2nd Filing Subdivision, an area with covenants & restrictions (CCRs) meant to preserve the quality of the neighborhood. The CCRs governing this area favor single family homes, though also allow mobile homes with permanent foundations. Additionally, up to two boats ("one pleasure boat and one fishing boat") are allowed to be stored on the property. RVs may be parked in the driveway of a home but camping and/or living out of your RV is forbidden.

  • While there are plenty of stores nearby for groceries and supplies, Elephant Butte is a very small lake side community. Fortunately, Truth or Consequences is only a five mile drive south along the 181. There you’ll be able to find plenty of additional resources including a Super Wal-Mart, numerous fast food restaurants, schools, churches and medical facilities.

  • Living here will put you within close proximity to not one, but two great golf courses in the Turtleback Mountain Resort & Golf Course and the Sierra Rio Golf Course.

  • There are plenty of great outdoor activities to enjoy here besides those offered at the nearby lake. You can explore the Black Range Mountains or go hiking along the trails of the Turtleback Mountain; enjoy the camping and boating at Caballo Lake State Park or spend an afternoon at Spaceport America, learning about space travel and experiencing life as an astronaut.
