This property is way fun – with tons of potential.  Classic Northern New Mexican homestead is located close to Santa Fe National Forest and the Pecos Wilderness, with easy access via Mora County road A-05.  A large variety of terrain, including flat meadow, gently sloping forest, and steep mountain, there’s something for everyone.  Several seasonal ponds dot the property, along with a spring on the northern end, surrounded by large willows.  All of it is fenced, making for a great property to bring your horses in for riding into the national forest.  Best part of all, there’s an old adobe home waiting to be restored…

Lucero Rimrock – Price Reduced!

I could wake up to this view every day for the rest of my life and be perfectly happy.  I’m betting you could too…. This is a beauty, the epitome of the Lucero area – a little farther north than the last three new listings.  29 acres,  11 of which are on the east side of the road, 18 on the west side.  The east side has pasture, Coyote Creek, and the Santa Rita Acequia going through – and the stunning rimrock capping it off.  This property is powerful, pure and simple!  The west side quickly rises up to a ridge and beyond, heavily forested,  with a great building site  looking at that rimrock and a source of timber for building, heating or just plain old privacy.  No close neighbors.  No power here (but we’ve still got that amazing fiber optic internet that one can’t even find in many big cities), so you’ll want to go solar if you intend to build.  Maybe you’ll just want to come out and watch the moon rise over that incredible rimrock…
