In Peaceful, Spacious Southern New Mexico, Low Key 55+ Country Club Estates Boasts Attractive Pueblo-Style Single Family Homes and a Nice Clubhouse
In the Chihuahuan Desert of southwestern New Mexico, the quiet town of Deming makes its home. It is the site of Country Club Estates, an attractive 55+ community with Pueblo-style, single family adobe homes. Building began in 2005 and lots are still for sale. The Florida Mountains loom in the distance.
Properties come in 10 different floor plans with six exterior designs. Sizes range from about 1,200 square feet with two bedrooms and two baths to nearly 3,000 square feet with three bedrooms and two and a half baths. All homes are all built on one level, and standard features include a corner Kiva fireplace, lever handles, an attached garage, no-step showers, arched doorways, tiled kitchens and baths, a stove, a dishwasher, a microwave, a 40 gallon hot water heater and air-conditioning. Extra features may include an RV garage, an outdoor kitchen, a courtyard and more. Community landscaping is a combination of brick pavers, decorative rocks and drought-resistant plants.
Prices start in the mid-$100,000s. The HOA fee starts at about $40 per month. Please check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change over time.
Amenities are limited to a nicely appointed clubhouse, but most residents seem content without the bells and whistles found in other planned developments.
No one under age 18 may reside in any unit, but children may visit for up to sixty days. The HOA covenants are fairly strict. For example, antennas, "unsightly objects" on property, inoperable vehicles on property, clotheslines, wells, signage and more are not allowed.
Deming has a number of art galleries, an arts council and two performing arts theaters. Residents enjoy a library, an 18-hole public golf course, two wineries, an aquatic center, abundant restaurants and a number of state parks in or around town. This area is well-known for rock-hunting, and the Deming Luna County Senior Center provides a wide variety of services for people age 55 or better. It also has volunteer opportunities.
Mimbres Memorial Hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission.
The land at the base of the mountains is flat, and the sky seems to stretch forever. The elevation of 4,300 feet above sea level helps mitigate temperatures somewhat. Still, July temperatures reach the 90s. Winter temperatures are in the 30s, 40s and 50s. On average, the area receives 9 inches of rain and a dusting of snow each year. Humidity is low, but sunshine is abundant.

How do 55+ Communities Get Away with Age Discrimination?
The Fair Housing Act (FHAct) protects all citizens from discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, handicap or familial status. When it comes to senior housing, Congress created an exemption from the familial status requirements as long as the housing is specifically for at least one person who is 55 or older in at least 80 percent of the occupied units and adheres to a policy that demonstrates intent to house persons who are 55 or older.
