    About this Property

    In the heart of the enchanting Pecos River Valley, La Cueva Ranch represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a historic compound surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty. The 50-acre property consists of 10 lots adjoining national forest land and enjoys nearly 1,000 feet of enviable Pecos River frontage. The three distinctive residences onsite overlook a freshwater pond and a picturesque grassy knoll. The river is teeming with trout, and the surrounding forest is threaded with private walking trails leading to breathtaking outlooks with vistas of the Pecos River Valley. The three-bedroom, three-bath main residence was designed by John Gaw Meem and constructed in 1926. One guest casita is an enchanting historic adobe with two bedrooms and two baths, while the other is a modern home built in 2011 that includes two bedrooms and one bath. Additional highlights include a studio, a greenhouse, a swimming pool, and a storage barn with workshop areas. A photovoltaic solar array and solar hot water provide the property with sustainable energy. La Cueva Ranch is not merely a property: it is an unparalleled opportunity to be immersed in a quintessential New Mexican experience. It is not merely a home: it is a piece of history, a nature preserve, and a remarkable private sanctuary.
