A long, winding drive leads to this meticulously maintained ranch estate with dramatic unobstructed views. Tucked into a hillside and enveloped by beautiful rock outcroppings, its exceptional home, which recalls a Swiss chalet, was sited for privacy and both built and remodeled with energy conservation in mind. It offers six serene bedrooms, seven baths, four fireplaces, a spacious kitchen, and dramatic living and entertaining areas. Superb attention to detail is evident throughout, from the triple-paned windows to the hand-cut Alaskan cedar balusters and decking. The 344-acre estate also includes a heated two-story post-and-beam barn, a storage building, two carports, additional barns, Temple Grandin–style sorting corrals, and other covered areas for vehicles and equipment. The main barn includes a milk room, a three-quarter bath, feed and hay storage space, and attached covered areas for equipment storage. Abundant wildlife makes its home on this ranch, and the Rito de Tierra Amarilla runs through it. spe

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.
