for oh so many reasons… this small (Realtors say cozy, and that it is!) adobe cottage has been completely restored and added on to, for a perfect living experience.  tucked into a corner of a six acre pasture, very lightly smattered with tall pines, fenced to provide maximum privacy, with splendiferous views out towards the Guadalupita valley.  the house is exquisite – hand scraped wood floors, vigas, plastered walls and other high quality finishes laid out in a highly efficient space.  great room with wood stove and back up electric baseboard heat, and one bedroom, with stack laundry space and a full bath.  big covered porch the length of the house provides delightful outdoor living.  if you like, close part of it in for a sunroom?  one two bay and one three bay pole barn, plus a storage shed, plus raised bed garden space – perfect!   in the village of Guadalupita, with excellent county road access…

ps – this a great ‘love it and leave it’ property- ask!

Ocate is a grand open valley, delineated by the Gallinas Mesa on the north, rimrock on the  west, and three stunning peaks to the east.  The south view sweeps open and broad, a visual feast, from each perspective.  Unspoiled by development, ranch houses dot the landscape here and there – wish I could better convey the way it feels, but I just need to encourage you to come and see/feel for yourself.

This ranch property runs north from Hwy 120, swelling up  to and beyond the grand rimrock that helps demarcate the Ocate area.  Large, cross fenced pastures play home to area wildlife, as well as providing food for the creatures that share your life.  Ocate Creeks feeds through the property, and an acequia  (with water rights) too.  The property boasts the only restored riparian area in the valley – plenty of nesting water fowl, beaver dams and just plain lush  terrain.   The tree line begins as the land begins its ascent to the mesa, providing opportunity for building sites either in the open, or sheltered.  Both power and fiber optics are at the property (!) a well and a septic are already in place.  If you’re so inclined, there is a great old adobe shell ready for restoration.  There are three  elk permits (1 bull, 2 ES) associated with the property , and a mineral rights report is available for your review…

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.)
