Welcome to the Lake of La Mesa Ranch

The Hacienda House
  The Spanish style hacienda was designed and built in 1974 by William R. Weaver as a natural getaway. The house is approximately 3,000 square feet with another 3,000 square feet in the pool courtyard area. Weaver would bring his friends and other El Paso dignitaries out to the ranch where they would hunt, swim and BBQ their game in the courtyard. The building was fabricated with pressured concrete tilt-up and block using the same technique as the large industrial buildings in El Paso.

Right: The courtyard was designed for outdoor entertaining with a large BBQ with built in grill, electrical, lights and gas line. The courtyard is enclosed on all sides. Below: Front Gate to the ranch.. It's not often we get snow, but it is rather spectacular when we do. In the winter the sun rises over the Northern edge of the Franklin Mountains.

The thousand foot driveway makes for an interesting greeting when you come home.
The interior of the hacienda is traditional Spanish style with curved doorways and hand carved window coverings. There are two stories, the bottom floor with 1 master bedroom and 2 fireplaces. The upper floor includes a game room with pool table and two bedrooms. Both floors have their own bathrooms and small entry rooms to each bedroom. The courtyard is enclosed and provides garden areas for ornamentals or other outside delights. The palms are at least 20 feet tall and provide shade for the lounging area.
