Boulders on the Green at Sonoma Ranch
Las Cruces, New Mexico 88011
In Southern New Mexico, Boulders on the Green is a Gated 55+ Enclave within Sonoma Ranch and has Distinctive Adobe and Territorial Style Single Family Homes
Las Cruces is located on the southern edge of New Mexico, close to the Rio Grande River, a natural border with Mexico, and at the base of the Organ Mountains. It is growing and attracting more and more retirees in search of dry air, open spaces and sweeping desert landscapes.
It is also the setting for award-winning Sonoma Ranch, a beautiful master-planned community with four neighborhoods, one of which is The Boulders on the Green (also known as The Boulders), an elegant, gated 55+ enclave with low maintenance, single family homes. Opened in 2004, the Boulders has won several senior housing design awards from the National Association of Home Builders.
Sonoma Ranch's contemporary adobe and territorial architecture gives the development a uniquely Southwestern flavor. The homes in Boulder on the Greens follow this theme and are all single story with design elements that create soothing interior spaces. Concrete tile flooring, dark wood doors, rounded wall corners and arched doorways evoke the laid back lifestyle for which this part of the country is famous.
All dwellings have a built-in security system, refrigerated air conditioning, a central vacuum system, forced gas heating, plenty of windows and attached two car garage that faces the street. Sizes range from approximately 1,611 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths to 1,991 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths. Exteriors boast a fully landscaped front yard, a rock wall fence with wrought iron accents, a gated front entry and a two color stucco finish. Prices begin in the low-$200,000s, but please verify this with a Realor as prices may change.
Amenities include a nicely appointed cluhouse with subdued lighting, a swimming pool, a spa, lighted walking trails and an 18 hole golf course. Many homes are located along a fairway and have either golf course views or mountain views. Sunset Grill is a particular point of pride. This award-winning, upscale restaurant is at the heart of Sonoma Ranch and overlooks the 18th green. Resident activities include RV trips, golf games, weekly happy hours, pool parties and more.
