Located just 15 minutes northeast of Ruidoso and conveniently close to the Ruidoso Airport (for those with private or chartered planes), this 525 acre community was originally launched in 2006, by CDS Rainmakers - Land L. C. , but due to the national recession in 2008, the development struggled for several years. In late 2017, Rainmakers was purchased by Dallas/Fort Worth-based businessman and commercial real estate developer Bill Vaughan. The new owners are making many improvements to the already beautiful grounds and are in the process of adding high end destination spa.
Currently, the best known feature of the development is the Robert Trent Jones II designed golf course. This course was the first in New Mexico to be awarded Signature Sanctuary Status by the Audubon Society, and was recently was named the “Top Residential Golf Course” in New Mexico for 2019 by Golfweek Magazine in its November issue.
In addition to the golf course & club house, you will find breathtaking mountain views, acres of dedicated green space, miles of maintained walking/hiking trails with the world class Spencer Theater Performing Arts center next door.
Existing homes in the community range from 1,500 sq ft patio homes to 4,000 sq ft custom homes on 1/2 acre lots. Prices range from $320K to $800K or more.
If you are thinking about purchasing a vacant lot, and having a custom home built, you will be glad to know that all utilities are readily available, except for sewer. Each homesite requires an individual septic system to be installed.
All homes must be of a southwest style and designs/plans must be approved by the Architectural Committee. Minimum requirements are 1,200 sq ft for Townhomes, 1,300 sq ft for Patio Homes, and 2,250 for any home built on a lot over 1/4 acre in size. An attached 2 car garage is also required.
There are currently some good buys on land in this subdivision as prices on some lots are 1/2 what they were when the development launched in 2006, but these discounted prices will not last long with the growth and improvements that are in the works now.
