This Historical Ranch Property, is a must see, New Mexico at it’s finest.
The house (images below) was built around 1945 and the current owners have dedicated the last 20 years to improving the quality of the land and the buildings. The land has been maintained with fallow fields, that are ready to be turned and planted, organic gardens would be possible. Horses and other livestock have access to almost the entire 28 acres of land, with a tack room, barn, and stable. In addition, a covered parking area and large enclosed storage area are attached to the barn. There is plenty of room for a full training arena.
Water, the one thing every property and ranch owner in New Mexico must fight for, there are 11.4 acres of junior water rights, a windmill ready to be put back in service, and a fully functional 120-foot well that provides water for the houses. The land is also connected to the Bonito Lake pipeline, regulated by Alamogordo, when water is available; your first 5,000 gallons are free.
The soil is rich with history, Native American pottery shards can be found on any walk about. A Confederate 100-dollar bill was found a few years back. The history of New Mexico is deep in the essence of this property. Enjoy a beautiful sunrise every morning with a full view of the Capitan Mountains to the east. A camera is a must-have for the fire in the sky sunsets to the west every evening. When the snow comes in the winter, it truly is a winter wonderland. The elk and deer make their way through the ranch almost daily. In the summer, some of the old fruit trees from the old orchard that inhabited the land when the house was first built still bear a small haul of apples, peaches, and pears.
The main house sits picturesquely on the hill, with a fenced back yard, a little green house, a lot of space for organic vegetable gardening, and flowerbeds galore. The house is made entirely of concrete to look like an authentic adobe. The covered front porch is sunny in the winter, and shady in the summer, perfect spot for a cup of coffee to greet the day. And did we mention the Milky Way, on a clear night it is the best view in the county. You will truly own a piece of the sky.
When you come through the front door there is a small living room with a kiva encased wood-burning stove that keeps the main floor warm. Two equal size guest rooms with large and roomy closets and a ¾ fully renovated bath on the main floor. The kitchen features beautiful snow flaked black granite counter tops and original solid wood cabinets with a duel tone finish and stainless steel accents throughout. The majority of the house went through a major renovation in the last two years, including the bathrooms. There is beautiful new tile and carpet downstairs with the master suite and laundry/storage area/mud room. Upstairs there is an office or dining room and great room with the original hardwood floors, recently restored. In the great room, you will find a massive picture window with a full breathtaking view of the Capitan Mountains and your pasture. The great room features built in bookshelves and plenty of space for family and friends to gather.
The guesthouse sits above the main house in a studio style with a separate kitchen and ¾ bath. This little casita would be perfect for rental income, the mother-in-law suite, ranch hands, or the proprietor of the house for a bed and breakfast.
This ranch property has income potential.
The entire property could be used for a meeting facility, bed and breakfast, or a healing center or retreat. With the availability of land enough for livestock, an equine therapy business would be another great option. Perfect space and size ranch land for miniature livestock farms. It has been utilized for the last 20 years as a healing center and home based business. Additional homes and buildings can be added for your specific needs. Really, if you can dream it, this little slice of paradise can be the place for you. 20 minutes from Ruidoso, Carrizozo and Capitan it sits perfectly nestled in the mountainside country but not too far from amenities. Only seven miles from Bonito Lake and 20 miles to Ski Apache.
