About Sun Valley
Sun Valley is one of those one way in / one way out areas in Ruidoso so one really gets the feeling your heading into another world as you enter. A world removed from the hustle and bustle of the resort town, where eagles circle slowly above and the wind really does whisper to you. In this way, Sun Valley shares some similarities with both Alpine Village and Cedar Creek as both these neighborhoods are one way in / one way out areas and have that sense of remoteness while being close to town as well.
To access the area, just head down Sun Valley Road which travels right to the west of the Alto Post Office. Lots of twisty roads heading up and over ridges and down through shallow valleys defines the navigation an topography of the area. And though the homes really do sit in a valley, the neighborhood is positioned to get quite a bit of sunshine through most of the year, hence the name.
Sun Valley is mid scale as far as home values. It is primarily comprised of site- built homes but there are smattering of manufactured homes in the area as there’s some subdivisions within Sun Valley which allow for these.
