This is an extraordinarily unique and historic farm & ranch property. It is often described as "A Piece of Heaven". Nestled in a private, hidden valley, it is less than 25 minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza. It consists of 48 beautiful green acres and is bordered by a spectacular basalt mesa, containing thousands of Native American petroglyphs, an ancient Indian Pueblo and hundreds of acres of adjacent, public open space land. It has a custom-built, Northern New Mexico Style Farm House with long covered portals, abundant natural light, with a spacious yet cozy feel. Birds, deer and other wildlife enjoy this distinctive property which encompasses natural spring-fed ponds, and a wonderfully restored riparian landscape with lush grass and a tree-filled Bosque or River Forest. It includes both sides along almost one full mile of the Santa Fe River. There are stock tanks, multiple wells, 3 windmills, and 16 acres of irrigated land. The fields have a fixed irrigation system and are currently planted in alfalfa and grass hay. Of particular significance, are the substantial water rights, all of which are included with this sale as well as reduced property taxes! There's a barn, small stable, corral, and rustic bunk house. In addition to cattle, horses, and other livestock, a wide variety of field crops have been grown on this farm in the past.
