A long winding drive leads to this meticulously maintained 422.77-acre ranch, which enjoys luxurious upgrades and unobstructed views. Resembling a Swiss chalet, the main residence features six bedrooms, seven baths, and four fireplaces; the charming guesthouse offers two bedrooms and baths; and the two-story post-and-beam barn features a milk room, a three-quarter bath, feed and hay storage space, and attached covered areas for equipment storage. Tucked into the hillside and enveloped by dramatic rock outcroppings, the home was sited for privacy and built and remodeled with energy conservation in mind. Superb attention to detail is apparent throughout, from the Pumice-Crete construction to the hand-cut Alaskan cedar balusters and decking and the triple-paned windows. Additional barns and outbuildings for equipment and vehicle storage and corrals for sorting cattle make this an ideal property for the rancher. A river runs through the property, and abundant wildlife call the land home.

About 60 miles north of Santa Fe, Abiquiu and surrounding communities of El Rito, Youngsville, Ojo Caliente and Chama to the north are some of the most beautiful landscapes New Mexico has to offer.
