Steeped in the history of the Southwest, this unique 549-acre landholding only 20 minutes from Santa Fe is the estate of Suzanne “Zannie” Hoyt, who purchased the 31,000-acre Buckman Ranch in 1960. Zannie and her husband ran a cattle operation and subdivided some of the land to create various neighborhoods and communities, including Las Campanas, keeping the “crown jewel” for their family. The Chile Line railroad ran through the lower portion of the ranch until 1941. Residences on-site include a four-bedroom “headquarters house,” a three-bedroom guesthouse, and a three-bedroom caretaker's residence, affording tremendous flexibility. The property abuts thousands of acres of BLM land is well suited for horseback riding. It also offers an ornamental koi pond, a swimming pool, several golf tees and greens, and livestock facilities. The property is served by four private wells, offers consummate privacy, and enjoys some of the most spectacular mountain views in the county.
