Eight Floor Plan Options will be Available in Rio Rancho Master-Planned Community’s Newest Neighborhood Outside Albuquerque

Harvard Investments, the developer of the Rio Rancho, NM master planned community named Mariposa, announces Richmond American Homes (RAH) is beginning presales in Mariposa in March 2023. Richmond American Homes new neighborhood, known as Seasons at Monarch offers eight different floor plans for its single-family homesites.

Seasons at Monarch features both single-story ranch and two-story floor plans ranging from 1,590 to 2,630 square feet with three to six-bedroom options. Two of the anticipated floor plans are part of Richmond’s UltraGarage® line. This is an incredibly desirable offering for outdoor-loving, adventure-seeking Mariposa residents. UltraGarage® is an attached, extra-tall garage designed to house a range of vehicles. Floor plans that offer this feature also have traditional garage bays for everyday vehicles.

Tim Brislin, senior vice president for Harvard Investments, said having Richmond American Homes join Mariposa is a tremendous opportunity for area homebuyers. “Richmond American is a premier homebuilder across the country. Having them build in Rio Rancho’s premier master-planned community brings a combination of architecture and quality many homebuyers are seeking. It should give them peace of mind knowing they’re getting a quality-built home in a highly desirable area. These homes can be personalized in a wide variety of ways to make them the perfect fit for each family’s individual lifestyle and life stage.”

Seasons at Monarch home sales are currently set to begin in mid-March 2023 with two model homes expected to be completed in early summer 2023.

“To say we are excited to be a part of Mariposa would be an understatement. We’ve seen this master-planned community grow and draw homeowners seeking the type of homes we offer, and we are thrilled to be able to meet that demand,” said David Newell, Division President New Mexico for Richmond American Homes.

All eight-floor plans available within the Seasons at Monarch neighborhood come with modern options for personalization. Richmond American Homes homebuyers meet with a professional design consultant to choose colors, textures, finishes, and fixtures for their new homes. This allows each new home to better reflect homeowners’ personal tastes and lifestyles.

Albuquerque-based Price Land Development Group has also been an integral partner for Richmond and Harvard Investments at Mariposa.  Price is preparing the parcel for Richmond and serves as their General Contractor for Seasons. “Communities like Mariposa are special. They have an excellent location, high-caliber builders, best-in-class amenities, and a developer team with a clear vision and impeccable standards. Mariposa also has the unparalleled Mariposa Preserve with its 2,200 acres of untouched land that opens up the natural beauty of New Mexico to every Mariposa community member. Thoughtful planning with Richmond’s team allows us to ensure the Seasons neighborhood is stunning and fits well in the new Monarch phase of Mariposa,” said Garret Price, president of Price Land Development Group.

New residents are able to enjoy the location, with homes situated on 50 acres on the northeast end of Mariposa, offering more than 14 acres of open space, views of five mountain ranges – including the Sandias – and a new neighborhood park named Longwing. The park is anticipated to be built in early 2024 and includes a picnic ramada and grill, plus a shaded play structure, a sandbox, a butterfly habitat, and a turf area for games and sports. Monarch residents will also have access to Mariposa’s existing pools, fitness center, parks, and other award-winning community amenities.

Additionally, residents have direct access to the 2,200-acre Mariposa Preserve, a dedicated open space protected in perpetuity and used for recreational and educational purposes. The preserve offers more than 10 miles of trails and breathtaking views of the New Mexico high desert and surrounding mountain ranges.

Mariposa’s proximity to Rio Rancho’s top-ranked schools, healthcare facilities, community parks, and more are also perks for homebuyers. Find out more about Mariposa and what makes it the premier master-planned community in Northern New Mexico by visiting
