Private, custom-built horse ranch on 77.5 acres of irrigated land, located on the high plains, with dramatic views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, near the historic Santa Fe Trail. With herds of elk, antelope, mule deer, flocks of wild turkey, and other wildlife, this spectacularly beautiful area of northeast New Mexico is a destination for art and music festivals, skiing, microbreweries, camping, hiking, rock climbing, fly fishing, hunting, and horseback riding. A short hop to Cimarron, Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, Taos, Red River and Questa. The ranch house is an elegant, 4800 sq. ft. double-walled adobe, handicap-accessible, with 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths, including a guest suite with separate entrances. Exposed beams, tongue and groove ceilings with skylights, custom cabinetry, zoned radiant heat, solar hot water, hand-colored cement floors, and lots of natural light. The southern view overlooks the horse pastures, hay field, and Miami mesa, with its little volcano. On the north side, a grove of old elms hosts hawks, ravens and owls. To the east and west stretch old, historic cattle ranches, ensuring privacy. A large horse barn includes a spacious bunkhouse with full kitchen and large bathroom. The adjoining corrals and arena are designed for easy flow of livestock. A large and sturdy insulated shop with east/west bays and skylights provides plenty of room for projects and equipment maintenance. A large steel hay barn also has room for haying equipment.
