An excellent opportunity to live on a ranch in the Estancia Valley and yet still close enough to Albuquerque for work, shopping, and city amenities. This beautiful ranch has 160 acres of high plains rangeland with scattered cedar and pinion trees. Surrounded by ranchland on the north, west, and south, with paved road frontage on the east, it is easily accessible yet very rural and quiet.
The 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home is situated to take full advantage of the views of the Manzano Mountains to the west and the south part of the Estancia Valley and mesas on the east. The extremely well-built home is constructed for energy efficiency, ease of maintenance, durability, and all of this in a beautiful and functional package. Features include 2×6 construction, 24 inch insulation in the attic and under the floors. The 48 inch crawlspace is lighted and accessible from inside the home. The ventilation duct work is wrapped and the home has double pane gas filled windows. Extremely efficient climate control is provided by a ground set evaporative cooler, forced air furnace, a pellet stove, and thermostat controlled ventilation turbines on the roof. 60 foot porches front and back are a terrific place to sit and enjoy the tremendous views this home is blessed with. The back porch is accessed by French doors from the large, open living area with cathedral ceilings as well as from the master bedroom. The master bath includes a separate shower and a jetted bathtub. The kitchen has easy access to 2 large pantries and an adjacent laundry room with deep sink. Additionally there is a bathroom with a shower off the laundry room. An oversize 3 vehicle garage with openers on all doors completes the home.
The headquarters area has an RV hookup, a domestic/livestock well system, and a concrete pad ready for a shop or barn building. The rangeland has a slight positve grade to the west and is in extremely good condition. It is currently being very lightly grazed. Wildlife including deer, elk, antelope, and predators transit the ranch and are in the local area. National forest and BLM lands are abundant in the area and provide a multitude of outdoor activities. This ranch does not have mineral or timber rights. The well has a permit for 3 acre feet per year, which is plenty for a small livestock operation. It is fenced on the east, north, and south sides.
This ranch is ready now for the horseman to add facilities to his or her specification and make this a showplace horse operation or for the person or family who wants a nice quiet rural lifestyle. The town of Mountainair is just 1 ½ miles south and has the amenities typical of a western small town.
