Set on the banks of the Rio Grande is the active adult community known as Alegria by Del Webb. Located in Bernalillo, New Mexico, this 55+ community is just north of Albuquerque and less than 40 miles from Santa Fe. The town of Bernalillo is one of the oldest continually established settlements in North America and is rich in culture and history. Residents enjoy gorgeous surroundings from soaring mountain ranges. Also nearby are the unique Carlsbad Caverns and the popular town of Santa Fe with fabulous museums, historical sites, art galleries, shops, dining and more. Thanks to an ideal year-round climate, the area is perfect for outdoor recreation nearly all-year long.
Alegria opened in 2006 and was originally started by Centex Homes. Pulte Homes, parent company of Del Webb, acquired Centex in 2009 and began selling Del Webb homes at Alegria shortly after. The community is planned for 376 homes upon completion. The new construction Del Webb homes are available in nine single-family ranch style floor plans sized from just over 1,400 square feet to 2,325 square feet. In addition to the new construction homes there are a variety of resale Centex homes available as well. Prices range from the low $200’s to the high $300’s.
The amenities of this unique New Mexico active adult community are centered around a 9,000 square foot clubhouse. Here residents enjoy a nice collection of amenities to support a physically fit and socially active lifestyle. There is a state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor swimming pool, hobby and game rooms plus a library. Outdoor amenities include another swimming pool, neighborhood parks and miles of trails for walking or biking.
The pleasant climate and location near the base of the Sandia Mountains offers a wealth of outdoor recreation opportunities. Some of the more unique recreation options include exploring archeological sites, hot air ballooning, and hiking the deep valleys and ridges in the surrounding national parks.
Whether within the Alegria community or nearby towns, the area offers a wealth of social activities to enjoy.
