Nestled in the Sangre de Cristos, Solecito Ranch spans 28.5 acres, including a portion of the Sapello River, a private well, 12.5 acre-feet of irrigation rights, and a large barn and corral. The three-story, approximately 5,500-square-foot home is an inviting adobe gem built in 1890 and the former home of Elliott Barker, noted author and New Mexico’s first game warden. Beautifully remodeled by the current owners, it features a living and dining area with a woodstove, a gourmet kitchen with a Wolf range, a library with rosewood floors, a master suite with a soaking tub, two guest bedrooms, an entertainment room, and a craft room. Other highlights include double-paned windows, Hunter Douglas blinds, a central vacuum system, a generator, an oversized two-car garage, a hot tub, and a playhouse by the river. The spacious porch is ideal for admiring the national forest, heirloom apple trees, the sounds of the river, and the wildlife. A pond encourages fishing and swimming in the summer.
