The History of the Land
Charles Francis Burke, rancher and farmer, purchased the Richard Baker Ranch in 1950. The land has been used as a cattle ranch and farmed for cotton, alfalfa, and corn.
A new chapter in the ongoing story of Picacho Mountain began in 2002 when the developers joined with the landowners to create a premier community. Comprised of over 850 acres, Picacho Mountain is set in the Chihuahuan Desert between the rolling Doña Ana Mountains and the picturesque Organ Mountains, a site that offers breathtaking views.
Commitment to the Land
The luxury homes at Picacho Mountain have been developed with a deep respect for the land. By preserving desert open spaces, complementing the environment and becoming a natural extension of the surrounding Chihuahuan Desert, today the rich heritage of this land lives on at Picacho Mountain.
