Sited along the rim of the Rio Chama near the quiet ranching village of Youngsville, this remarkably private 1,000-acre property—two separately deeded 500-acre tracts—enjoys unparalleled vast views and borders Carson National Forest and the Chama River Canyon Wilderness area. Built by respected Santa Fe builder John Wolf, the steel and concrete home and casitas are sited to take full advantage of the glorious pink and red hills and the valley of the Piedra Lumbre Land Grant, all memorialized by Georgia O'Keeffe. Each structure is a work of art in its own right, capturing the essence of the environment through light and form while incorporating the comforts of a luxurious getaway. Landscaped stone paths lead from formal living, dining, and communal spaces to the guest casitas. A large soaking pool and hot tub sits just below the home’s decks—all ideal for appreciating the richness of the surrounding ancestral rocks. The ranch also enjoys access to the river below, which flows to the nearby Abiquiú Reservoir. The property is gated, and a private well is in place. Truly a remarkable estate reveling in the area’s ever-changing dramatic skies, Estancia del Rio is both a place of solitude and reflection and an adventurer’s dream retreat. An additional adjacent 500 acre parcel of vacant land is also available for sale with its own access to the National Wilderness also bordering the Rio Chama.
