EL PASO - They're lavish and extravagant and turn a lot of heads in El Paso. Tonight, we continue our countdown of the city's most expensive homes.
Tucked into a gated development, 6700 Tuscany Ridge is number six on our list.
Its clay tile roof, private gate, landscaping, and high ceilings all contribute to its charm. But it's not only the lot size or the quality of the materials used to build the home, but it's also the views that value it at $1.25 million.
A listing on real estate website Zillow.com shows the lot size is over 2 acres and the home boasts five bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a home theater, elevator, wine cellar, and nine fireplaces. Sources tell us a developer owns the home.
Moving on to number five, 125 Camino Barranca is tucked away behind the Camino Estancias subdivision.
"They've had to come in here and develop it on the side of the mountain, that cost is much greater than developing on level land," said Angelo Amoriello with Amore Appraisals. Nestled at the foot of the mountain., he says these lots don't come cheap.
"You either have a view of the city or the mountains, and/or city and mountains," he said.
It's the size, location, and views that make this home worth $1.28 million, and according to city records, the fifth most expensive home in El Paso.
According to the realtor.com, the lot for number four on our list spans across almost eight acres. This six bedroom, seven point five bathroom pad sits behind its own security gate. With panoramic views of the city, this exclusive Westside home is worth $1.3 million, making it the fourth most expensive home in El Paso. Tomorrow we'll continue our look at the most expensive homes and show you the home that tops our list.
