I’m In Love!

I’ll bet you will be too!    I found this to be a very special place, tucked away in a private riparian setting.   It’s got a whale of a house site, in a lovely meadow backed by the dramatic rimrock that bounds the east side of the property.  (This means a great southern orientation and a bonus of views.)  Manuelas Creek bisects the length of the property, with various building sites available up and downstream too.  Elk and deer sign are abundant.  Wander about a bit and you’ll stumble onto a yurt platform, with a separate roofed over space. The owner says there are caves and petroglyphs (?) up high – no guarantees they’re there as I’ve not seen them (yet!).  Access is paved – a small neck of the property sticks out of the trees that give such great screening and runs out to Hwy 120.  Previous owners built a low water crossing and put in a well – power is about 650′ away, along the highway right of way.  Located in Ocate, NM, just as the pavement ends where the road heads over the mountains to Black Lake and Angel Fire….  Pretty dadgum perfect, if you ask me.

Spaghetti anyone?

Filed under: Latest listing

A classic favorite – spaghetti!  Especially with a good sauce – in this case, the Mora River…

4/14 Hmmmm – guess this pun was only in my mind, and not so easy to pick up on.  This is a very long, narrow tract of land – spaghetti shaped, really….

Classic NNM long narrow parcel of mountain ground begins on the east side of  Hwy 121, drops down through a meadow to the Mora River, then begins a long climb through more meadow, up the mountainside waaaaaay back in.  Gorgeous forested land with incredible valley views makes for intrigue when figuring out where to locate any improvements.  Power runs out front, along the road….

Los Chupaderos – With Possible Owner Financing!
November 15, 2013, 2:55 pm
Filed under: New Listing!

Located just 4.5 miles from Mora on Hwy 434, this 181 acre tract of land has some great topography.  Half a mile wide along the west side of Hwy 434 and three quarters of a mile deep, the possibilities for development are diverse.  Check out the old adobe ruin at the front of the property (I hear tell it is an old schoolhouse) with functioning well close by.  I know I’m basically an optimist, but I think this place could be restored.  Power runs all along the east side of the property, adding to it’s potential.  Run up to one of the ridges and you’ll see the views posted in the pics below – there is an old road to get you there should you decide that’s your spot…

                                                                PRICE:  $235,300.

 WHERE?  Los Chupaderos (MM 4.5 Hwy 434, north of Mora)

 ACCESS:  Hwy 434

                            TELEPHONE: along eastern boundary

       WATER:  well 

         GAS:  propane 

           SEWER:  septic

    ELEVATION:  7500′ on up!

 FENCING: The survey shows the property being fully fenced.  I know the east side along the highway is well fenced and most of what I’ve seen (not a lot!) on the  north and south is too, though I’ve seen a few spots where it’s down…  I’ve not been up to the west side, so can’t verify what is or isn’t in place there….

 OUTBUILDINGS?  Old adobe ruin – not big, but looks restorable to me!  GREAT roof lines…. (No fair peeking in without me – it IS a ruin and could be dangerous!)

 TAXES:  1857.64 for 2013

People are Dying to Have This View!

They don’t call it Ojo Feliz for nothing – your eyes will be happy here too!  Exceptional 1.49 acre lot, with paved access off of Hwy 442, showcases the Sangre de Cristo mountains.  Gently sloped, with a smattering of trees, for a perfect home site or RV pad.  Community water is close (but I’ve just learned it’s not a given that you can get in), and power is immediately across the road, with easement available.  I rarely see small, title insurable lots in this big ranch country…  Quiet neighborhood – Ojo Feliz camposanto is next door!

No need to die to go to heaven – just move to Ocate!  It’s a heavenly place, with the most incredible, expansive views…

This really is a farm, or ranch, whatever you prefer to call it.  Let’s start with the home, built circa 2005.  Set well back off the pavement for privacy, the 1800+/- square foot floor plan has large master bedroom suites on each end and a great room concept for the balance of space.  It’s a wonderful cooks kitchen, big U shaped with a small eating area, open to the dining area and the spacious living room with a set off (but still open) sitting area.  Huge pantry/utility room off the kitchen.  Big sunny windows with  expansive views – come check it out!    Lots more – don’t stop now!   162+ acres with a lovely mix of pines and pasture, fenced and cross fenced, again, with paved access.  There is a huge barn, a large quonset hut with slab floor and two phase power for a perfect workshop, AND a self contained guesthouse, completed with washer and dryer hookups.   Two storage containers offer storage space for all the extras you may have.  There is a tremendous amount here for the money – if you’re searching for a rural homestead, this is a must see….  (Click on words in red to see the subject matter – they’re links.)

The. Perfect. Cottage. SOLD!
August 9, 2013, 9:52 am
Filed under: Latest listing

What does it take to make a perfect cottage?   Lots and lots of attention to little details.  This cottage is scaled to make you feel like there is plenty of space, unconfined, with beautiful  light and natural materials that make you feel right.at.home.  Exquisite attention to detail make this house a home from the moment you set eyes on it.  You’re drawn in – you want to sit down and absorb the different elements that comprise this simple but lovely space.   When you’ve finished  marveling inside,  wander out the back door to the 30′ diameter deck (a piece of art in and of itself), centered by a hot tub.   Some of the critical details:  this cottage was built with the idea that it would serve as a guest house/studio space, with a larger home to be built  just up the hill.  Infrastructure was developed accordingly – there are two wells, and two septic systems, and the solar array is sufficient to support two homes.  Hmmm – I think I left out that you’ll never get an electric bill here – the property is completely off the grid.  Build another home, or add onto this one – you’re already ready for all the possibilities.   The owner built this cottage as his first project, harvesting all the wood materials from the property.  A finer craftsman you’ll not need to meet….    Tucked into the forest (with a large swathe of meadow) on 53 acres of ground in Los LeFebres Canyon, you’ll see no neighbors, share the night sky with no one.  Also included is 20′X40′ storage shed with more of those craftsman details…  (more photos later – check my website in a few days for land and shed pics)

I promised to post these land pics and shed photos too, then promptly forgot.   Thanks for the reminder Mike!
