Alegria Overview

Alegria in Bernalillo, New Mexico is perched on the banks of the Rio Grande just north of Albuquerque and less than 40 miles from Santa Fe. Boundless recreational opportunities, proximity to culture and a pleasant climate have been drawing retirees to the region for years. At Alegria, a limitless array of lifestyle opportunities await.

Alegria is ideally situated near the base of the Sandia Mountains and centrally located to many notable attractions in northern New Mexico. It is located in Bernalillo, which is the historical center of New Mexico and one of the oldest continually established settlements in North America. Fifteen minutes south, Albuquerque is rich with culture and heritage, breathtaking terrain and a vibrant social scene. Whether your passions are museums, skiing, art, ballooning, or hiking, the region has something for everyone.

Alegria was started in 2006 by Centex Homes. In 2009, Centex was acquired by Pulte Homes and Del Webb. All remaining homes will be built under the popular Del Webb active adult brand. Del Webb has built numerous 55+ active adult communities across the country and they are well known for building quality ranch homes in communities rich with amenities and active lifestyles. The merger of Del Webb with Alegria is sure to bring great things to this already thriving active adult community near Albuquerque, NM.

Alegria Amenities

At Alegria, residents have the perfect blend of a community that caters to both socially minded and physically active residents. A 9,000 square-foot clubhouse is the centerpiece of all activity at Alegria in Bernalillo. Here, residents gather with new neighbors, mingle with old friends and workout in a fun and relaxing environment. The beautiful facility boasts an indoor and outdoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness center, hobby and game rooms and a library. Outside, residents of Alegria can unwind in any of the neighborhood parks or stroll through the community on the miles of walking and biking trails.

Alegria Homes & Real Estate

Home buyers in Alegria can select from nine new construction single-family floor plans that range in size from 1,403 to 2,325 square feet.

Additionally, there are several pre-owned resale homes for sale in Alegria.

Centex, the original builder of Alegria, designed the homes with open layouts and minimal walls to maximize space and create bright, spacious interiors. After Centex was acquired by Pulte Homes in 2009, Del Webb (the 55+ active adult division of Pulte Homes) will complete the remainder of Alegria.

We've enjoyed living here at Alegria for about 3 years now. It's been great! Our house hasn't given us any problems to speak of and we've been happy with the quality of the construction. Most of all we love being part of a real neighborhood. It's very private yet friendly and welcoming and it's well maintained and clean. The views are amazing too!

From the time we started looking at a home in Alegria to the time we moved in everything was very professional and complete. Great job was done by all, both the Alegria staff and our real estate agent. Thanks to our sales staff for the job they have done and continue to do.

In the fall of 2011, we were on a weekend mini-vacation to Albuquerque and took a four hour self-guided tour of Alegria. We met many of the owners, toured the club house and gym, walked through the 9 model homes, and watched many of the daily activities. When we drove out I said to Mary, "what do you think?" . She answered "let's go back to Colorado Springs and put the house up for sale." We did, and moved to Alegria in June of 2012. Now we enjoy the daily walks through the bosque with our dog, many of the scheduled daily activities, and the many friends and neighbors we have already met. What a great fun place to live!!!

Living in NYC all my life, I didn't know what to expect when I moved into Alegria 3 months ago! It didn't take me long to find out. I have never felt more comfortable in a community as I do in Alegria. The residents are wonderful! From the minute I arrived, I never felt like a stranger! I have made more friends in 3 short months here than living in my community in NYC for 30 years. Alegria itself is great! The clubhouse, pools and activities are great and so are the people who work at Alegria. Adding to all this is the splender of NM! I absolutely love it here and ask myself ... why didn't I move here sooner!

Nice Del Webb community near Albuquerque that I have visited several times and I was considering moving there at one time. However, I changed my mind since the builder has had MANY complaints nationally on home quality issues, including the roofs at the community on these new and newer homes. Credit to Del Webb for inspecting and replacing roofs (where needed) and paying for the expenses. That was wise since they still have many lots to sell and it does NOT need bad public relations if it wants to sell the remaining lots. But I fear that there may be other problems in the future with these homes. Sure hope that does not happen.

I know some residents who live there and have talked to others when I visited and overall, I get positive feedback. Many nice social activities to choose from but there have been complaints that the clubhouse is too small for a community of this size. There has been talk of possibly expanding it someday but DW is not interested in doing that. Homes are built really close together and lots are not that big with small backyards. Great mountain views command premium prices on select lots.

Last time I checked, the HOA fees were $112 a month but that is bound to go up as time passes. No golf course but there are bocce ball courts and other recreational amenities.

Nine models to choose from at reasonable BASE prices but those prices go up with all the added expenses like upgrades, building options of homes, and possible premium lot fees.

There are stores nearby like Wal-Mart and the town of Bernalillo is a couple of miles away. For even more shopping and businesses, Rio Rancho is not that far away and Albuquerque is about 17 miles away.

I hope this info helps any person or couple considering a move to Alegria. Go there in person and check it out to see if this is the kind of place where you want to move to. Good luck to one and all!
