On 77.5 irrigated acres on the high plains of northeastern New Mexico, this private horse ranch enjoys dramatic views of the Sangre de Cristos and proximity to the historic Santa Fe Trail. Minutes from Cimarron, Angel Fire, Eagle Nest, Taos, Red River, and Questa, the property features a custom-built 4,800-square-foot double-walled adobe ranch house with five bedrooms and three full baths, including a guest suite with a private entrance. Exposed beams, tongue-and-groove ceilings with skylights, custom cabinetry, zoned radiant heating, solar-heated water, hand-tinted concrete floors, and abundant natural light are among the highlights. The large horse barn includes a spacious bunkhouse with a full kitchen and a bath. The adjoining corrals and arena are designed for easy flow. A large, sturdy insulated shop with eastern and western bays and skylights provides plenty of space for projects and equipment maintenance. A large steel barn offers room for haying equipment. The southern view encompasses horse pastures, a hay field, and Miami Mesa. On the north side, a grove of mature elms hosts hawks, ravens, and owls. To the east and west stretch historic cattle ranches, ensuring privacy. Home to herds of elk, antelope, and mule deer; flocks of wild turkey; and other wildlife, this spectacularly beautiful area is a destination for art and music festivals, skiing, microbreweries, camping, hiking, rock climbing, fly-fishing, hunting, and horseback riding.
