SECLUDED SPOT in Rincon Ranch (just across from Sierra Bonita and up the road a tad from Coyote Creek State Park) sits this 23+ acre forested parcel of ground.  Nicely dimensioned, with varied terrain – it feels quite peaceful and private.  Accessed by Ski Run Road (aptly named!) along it’s western boundary, you’ll feel tucked away, yet it’s only 750′ from the well maintained Rincon Road, and less than a mile from Hwy 434.  Plenty of choices for great building sites – or just come and camp out in your RV.  Power is at Rincon Road.  Fishing within a mile, skiing and golf within 20 miles!

                                                       PRICE:  $66,300

LOCATION:  Rincon Ranch (between MM 17 & 18 on Hwy 434)

ACREAGE:  23.68

UTILITIES:  None on site, but power is pretty close.



TAXES:  $553.95 in 2017

HOA:  No.  There IS a road association for Rincon Ranch, and all property owners contribute $100 a year for the maintenance of Rincon Road.  It’s well worth it – they do a bang up job!

for the summer season!  It’s heating up out there, and it’s time to hit the mountains and enjoy a cool getaway in the tall pines.  This homey cabin is tucked back into the far reaches of Christmas Tree Canyon, and is designed for simple living.  Spacious, open, with wood finishes everywhere that just feel good…  Located on a forested tract of land, with some views of rocky peaks from the wraparound deck that gives plenty (Plenty!) of outdoor living space.  Built on piers, the seller utilized the undercarriage of the house to serve as a 2 car garage – you can either close it in, or let it remain as a ‘carport’ with workshop and wood storage space.  There is a lift from this space up into the living area to keep you from having to carry groceries or wood up the steps -handy!

PROTECTIVE COVENANTS: Christmas Tree Canyon Covenants & Amendment 







Bring your Toothbrush! SOLD!!


You’ll not need anything else (hmmmm – maybe toothpaste?) in this made to order ready to move into cabin.  Always a treat to find a special spot hidden away in the cool forest…

Someone had you in mind when they realized that it was time to sell.  The owners can’t spend enough time here, thought you’d like to, so they  included all the furnishings, including pots, pans, decorations, right down to laundry detergent and softener.   The cabin itself is an incredibly well maintained little gem with an open floorplan – check out the hardwood floors, tongue and groove walls and vaulted ceiling.  Light and bright with big windows, heated with a wood stove and back up electric heat. Added bonus of a generator, for when the power goes out!  These folks added a huge redwood deck in the front – there’s almost as much outdoor space to play in as indoor.  Fenced back yard for the puppy dogs too – what’s not to like?!

Located in Sierra Bonita, 18 miles north of Mora, just north of Coyote Creek State Park.  Great fishing in stocked ponds and creek frontage below the subdivision!   Just 20 miles south of  Angel Fire, with golfing, skiing and plenty of summer recreation.

When is alone not lonely?  When you’ve got deer and elk and bears and crickets and the sound of the breeze in the trees to keep you company!  This tract of land is way back there, all by itself (so you can be all by yourself) hidden up in Trumbell Canyon.  We’ve seen a resurgence of activity in sales in this canyon after a long hiatus due to some title issues.  Issues cured, we’ve now got insurable access – though the canyon is still gated and private, making this area inaccessible to folks who don’t own property up here.  129 acres of rugged mountain terrain to play, hike, hunt and enjoy.  Fully forested, with a new road cut in to make access easier.  No power here folks, so bring your solar panels/generator if you want to run equipment or a household.  Be prepared to 4 wheel drive!

I swear, I’m not making this up – check it out!  This is a heart shaped mountain, and it is literally right in the heart of the village of Guadalupita.  Bounded by Highway 434 on the west, and a county road on the east, access is a breeze.  The present owners have had an RV pad carved out with a graveled road installed to get to it, with some pretty terrific views.  Fully forested, you can hang out/hide out in the woods or set along the meadow edge and catch some southern sun.  Power is right across the road (with easement in place), and there is community water available in the county road.  Little roads  curve through and up to the top of the property, making the majority of the land accessible.  30 minutes to Angel Fire, an hour plus a little to Taos, an hour to Las Vegas.Heart of Guadalupita

Chacon is one of the lushest valleys inside of Mora County, circled by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Rincon Range.  Bisected by the Mora River, one only needs to drive up the valley to appreciate the visual beauty to behold there.

This particular home is a fully renovated classic Northern New Mexico beauty.  Two foot thick rock walls anchor this home to its mooring against a ridge – solid, inspiring.  A small creek bisects the 3.9 acre parcel, also home to a large meadow with amazing views.  A large adobe master bedroom suite sits off by itself to the back of the home, with a small sunny courtyard just outside, and a hand built rock wall with nichos.  The modern kitchen has room to eat in, with formal dining space located in the new frame sunroom.  Tile floors with radiant heat in the main house, while the MB has radiant heat in the handsome brick floors.  The open living room has a modern wood stove, and access to the very large loft above.  Two more bedrooms sit on the far end of the home, that share a very handsome bathroom and separate access to the outdoors.  Well designed and executed outdoor living space too, with covered portals and decks out almost every door.

Way more than I can detail here – if you’re in the market for a spacious, well built home with all the advantages of living in the country, please schedule a visit soon.
