Welcome to Desert View at Mariposa

Mariposa is a truly elegant master-planned community, set on what is arguably some of the most spectacular land in New Mexico. Our Desert View neighborhood in Mariposa will be one of its premiere communities. Many of our oversized home sites are nestled into the foothills, while others afford stunning views of the seven mountain ranges. And you will be able to enjoy an extensive network of community biking trails and exercise paths that bring you closer to the high desert and allow you to enjoy the active outdoor lifestyle offered here to its fullest. As a builder with over 20 years of experience, we realize how truly rare it is to find a conjunction of all these elements. They don’t happen just anywhere. But they are happening here. Now. For you.
