RULE #ONE

 

 

ALWAYS view a potential property onsite – NEVER just from the road.  This 154 acre property is a prime example – and I almost made the mistake myself, doing a drive-by to begin with.  This place has Location, Location LOCATION!, with spectacular views, but you’ve got to be on it to see it!  Located just (JUST!) outside of Mora, with delightful views up and down the valley.   Choose a private timbered setting, or stay a bit lower in the valley – either way you go, you win.   Nicely shaped, this parcel looks to be about 1/3 big open meadow, 2/3rd forested, running from the Mora Valley floor to the top of the ridge overlooking the valley.  The breadth of potential here is big -Ranch? Horse farm? Commercial?  All viable with the great access on Hwy 94 and proximity/visibility of Mora. Big cottonwoods and a wetland at the bottom gives you a variety of terrain and ecosystems to play with.

Swearing off…

I swore I wouldn’t take another remote mountain listing, but then I remembered that swearing got me to where I am today, happily tootling the mountains of Northern NM…  So here I am again, with an almost 200 acre parcel of rugged mountain ground in Trumbull Canyon, just north of Mora, NM.  Tall pines, fir and oak populate this property, along with diverse wildlife – and not much else. It’s wonderful to be alone out here – so quiet, and with a night sky people in cities would pay to see.   Running from the valley floor to the tops of rocky mountain ridges, this nicely proportioned property lends itself to privacy for you and yours.  2 miles from the highway, you’ll want 4 wheel drive to assure yourself of access in bad weather.  No utilities here (that’s one of the features that makes it remote!)

CHACON …

Chacon is a lush verdant valley, encircled by the Sangre de Cristos and Rincon Range, on the southern end of the Rockies.  This very special parcel of ground has interesting topography including a hillside that wraps around the homesite, with a pasture above and behind the home.  Bejeweled by a creek (hey, they’re hard to come by around here!) and lovely vistas, there’s room for both critters and outdoor living.  But the real prize here is the home.  A classic NNM adobe and rock home was completely renovated (except for the master bedroom suite) in 2012 – from the roof to the floors.  The massive walls were all that was left before the present home was created.  Radiant heated floors combine with bright light from copious windows to create a warm, comfortable living space.  Big rooms all, with tall ceilings and nichos scattered here and there.  The master bedroom, with its brick floors, cathedral ceiling, and mud plastered walls, exudes character with it’s own wood stove for ambiance.  I’ve got lots more to tell you about this house and how many different types of lifestyles it can accommodate  – call and ask questions, or just come and see.  It’s a rare opportunity in these parts!

Hello World!
May 10, 2010, 9:50 am
Filed under: The Basics

Hello World!

Just a few quick get started notes:

First, kudos to Tom, my computer guru, who ever so patiently teaches me how to do so much of what I’ve learned on the computer, so that I can better share information with you (and look more professional!).  It just goes to prove you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

This site will evolve, and I’ll get better at posting photos and maps and information you’d really like to know about a property before deciding if you want to see it in person.  Today (May 10, 2010) is my first stab at improving the way I deliver information to you about new listings.  Don’t hesitate to give me feedback on what you do and don’t like, and what you would prefer to see,  so that I can do a better job as we go along.

As elite  :<)  members of my mail list, you get sneak previews of my new listings before Anyone Else gets a peek – so you won’t find anything on my website immediately, but please don’t hesitate to visit there for information on all my other current listings.

Thanks for looking!  Don’t hesitate to call me for more information, or to schedule a showing.

Best,

Sue Strebe, Broker
