Plaza Colorada

The minute you enter the gate of Plaza Colorada you experience the wide-open spaces and breath taking views that northern New Mexico is famous for possessing.  This 5797+/- acre ranch has a spirit of adventure while simultaneously offering complete tranquility.  It sits high above the Chama River at upper elevations of 7665 feet.   An ideal location just 45 miles north of Santa Fe in the quaint town of Abiquiu.  


With over 1200 feet of elevation change through out the ranch, there are fantastic views of the many nearby mountain ranges.  The countryside is dotted with high Mountain Pinion Pines and Juniper hills.  The soil consists of a gravely sand mix which is ideal for hiking on the numerous trails that are found on the ranch.  Plaza Colorada is home to many native wildlife species including turkey, mule deer, elk, bear, mountain lion, and coyote to name a few.   The foundation of this ranch allows it to be developed into a wildlife sanctuary.


In the late 1970’s – early 80’s, this ranch was being developed as an outdoor artists’ retreat.  You will find many trails and rock-work congruent with the former owner’s vision.  The alluring charm of the rock amphitheater and nostalgic tee-pee sitting high atop an overlook add a spirit of character to this scenic land.  


A few hundred yards inside the gate of the Plaza Colorada lies an all purpose wooden barn, a water well and an enchanting rock structure.  The ranch possess electricity and two water wells that are not currently in operation.   Additionally, there is a non-functioning windmill that is a captivating landmark of past history.  With little improvements, the Colorada ranch is the perfect blank slate for you to establish your own vision.
