“The Highest House in Texas” is not the penthouse of the state’s tallest condominium. The Mile High Lodge, a 6,500-square-foot hacienda in the Hueco Mountains, wins that honor.
Just 30 minutes from downtown El Paso, the five-bedroom Spanish-style home has been immaculately renovated. From an observation deck, one can see the lights of El Paso, Mexico and New Mexico beyond. From a balcony or the hot tub, it is a great place to watch the sun set.
In addition to being an incredible personal home, the estate at 375 Loma Linda Drive could be an income-producing property as a retreat, lodge or conference center. Several weddings have been held there.
On its 10,000 acres, the largest individually owned tract near El Paso, you can hunt javelina, quail and mule deer.
Mile High Lodge is being listed for $8,250,000.
Inside a gated entrance on a private road, the adobe home features four fireplaces and four and a half baths. A commercial kitchen is adjacent to the dining room that seats twelve.
Recently remodeled and decorated in a western motif, the home features Saltillo-tiled flooring. Navajo rugs also add charm and warmth throughout.
Outside, there is a deck and two Spanish courtyards, one with an adobe fireplace, the other with a margarita bar.
Most visitors to the Mile High Lodge praise its serenity, but there is also a variety of recreational opportunities. In addition to hunting, ATVs can be rented nearby to whisk you away on an adventure of exploration. Visit nearby national parks and historical areas, or shop in El Paso and Juarez, Mexico.
The 16 miles of land also present great development opportunities with the growth of El Paso and Fort Bliss, the Army’s second largest installation. Wind farms could also be erected on the property.
