I'd say on the west side-
- around the El Paso Country Club (Montoya south of Mesa/Country Club Road) $700-1,000,000
- Coronado Country Club area (top of Thunderbird)
- new development at edge of mountain (ie: top of High Ridge)

check out Real Estate, Homes for Sale - Zillow for housing price maps

Do you think Rim Rd is as pricey as Coronado Country Club area?

I had a boss who lived off of Rim Rd. I think it was like Sierra Ridge or something like that. His house was over half a mil. The other houses in the area were even more expensive.

How about the Willows? Isn't that pretty damn expensive?

Sierra Crest Drive? On Crazy Cat Mountain? (What a name.)(Google Map of the Crazy Cat Mountain neighborhood.)

The Willows is a newer area just south of the El Paso County Club in the Upper Valley (Rosinante Road).
Zillow.com shows most housing in the $300-$450,000 range.

Sierra Crest Drive I believe. It was a gated community up on the mountain. I didn't think the house could possibly be worth that after seeing it but that is what it sold for.

This was one of my points. The houses up near Thunderbird are nice, but should not warrant anywhere near the best the city should have to offer. Rim Road, is OK, but its basically just a view over looking the city, and if I remember, its only a few houses that actually have the view.

The Willows neighborhoos is not really a "newer" area at all! The neighborhood has been around for quite some time now. Also, The Willows along with the neighborhood directly west of it, Stonehedge, have a number homes that are valued around $1,000,000.

However, neither one of these would be considered El Paso's most expensive neighborhood (Even though Paul Foster lives on Rosinante)...simply because of the disparity between the value of homes.

It's funny about relevance....the numbers we toss around here as expensive are so average in other parts of the country. I lived in an area where homes were typically $800K to $20M or more. $500K was a small fixer-upper. Still can't afford a $300K home here, but at least I could afford a home.
