Victory Ranch – “Donde Viven Alpacas”

If you’re at all familiar with Mora County, you probably know the iconic Victory Ranch.  Ideally located one mile north of Mora on Hwy 434, the ranch consists of lush sub irrigated (vegas)  and irrigated fields with a backdrop of the Rincon Range mountains.  Varied improvements lend the ranch the ability to adapt to numerous possibilities.  Currently used to raise and board alpacas, as well as to market alpaca wool yarn and goods, it’s suitable as a retreat, equestrian facility or dude ranch.  Ten elk permits currently associated with the property. Three homes, 7 stall garage plus warehouse, retail facility and large barns and corrals complement the 1006 acre parcel of ground.

The National Fish Hatchery is surrounded by Victory Ranch on three sides, lending a natural draw to tourism.

Dancing with the Stars!

Two step or waltz into the night by starlight – for sure you’ll want to dance when you discover this exceptionally beautiful ranch!  Located close to Ocate, (one of my favorite places on Earth… ).  Sweeping views of the Ocate Valley and the landmark Cerro Pellon, big grasslands capable of supporting and estimated 75 animal units, nicely dotted with ponderosa pine.  Very private and serene.  Large (shared) pond and hand dug well sit well back into the ranch in a lovely valley, backset by rimrock for a stunning house setting.  Five elk permits are currently associated with the property.  I can’t wait to show this to you – you’re going to be SO impressed! 🙂

How Lucky Can You Be?

If you’re lucky enough to buy this place, you’re pretty dadgum lucky!  It’s  spectacular, from every perspective.  Gorgeous, accessible, remote, quiet, with stream, pasture, an old restorable adobe, incredible views… I could go on, but if the sound of this appeals, don’t wait, k?  When I’m as excited about a property as I am about this one, I tend to sell it quickly…

Offered in three ways – as a whole, at 320 acres for $570,000.  As two separate pieces, one on the west side of the road with 227 (estimated) acres for $283,750, and the parcel on the east side of the road at 93 (estimated) acres for $325,500.  As you can see, the seller is motivated to sell as a whole…

The east side of the road is primarily pasture, smattered with cottonwoods, stream frontage and most amazing forested slopes up to the powerful rimrock.  It includes the adobe structure and the framework of a great old barn.

                                          ALTOGETHER:  320 ACRES FOR $570,000

                                                93 (ESTIMATED) ACRES AT $325,500

The west side of the road is it’s own amazing place.  Entirely different from the east, it’s terraced grassy benches rise up to a plateau, and then undulate up to the high point at the rear.  Incredible rock ridges separate the benches, making every turn step you take an adventure into what’s next.  The views of the rimrock and the valley are stunning.   Many building sites that offer great privacy…

CHACON … (REDUCED!)

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!

 PRICE REDUCED!  $229,900!!!

The Golden Ranch is Your Golden Opportunity! SOLD!!

If you’ve longed for a place to hang your hat and have room to roam, either on a full or part time basis, you’ll want to look at the Golden Ranch.  Located in a box canyon at Los Hueros, just outside of Ocate, NM, you’ll find privacy, peace, quiet and amazing beauty here.  The property consists of  1083 acres of forest and pasture, both on the valley floor and on the mesa top, with some pretty interesting terrain between (and equally interesting views – fantastic!).  The ranch includes two characterful cabins, one with ‘facilities’ the other without.  Each is a one bedroom unit and each feels homey and welcoming with wood features that suit their setting.  Well maintained apple orchard.  Big open pasture with some (as of yet) unverified water rights.  Sellers are applying for elk permits now.  Homes come furnished so you’re ready to settle right in

TOPOGRAPHICAL OVERLAY:  YES!  This is the fun part – check out these two different overlays – one pertains to the 305 acre parcel, and one to the 778 acre parcel.  Easy to see what a great configuration these are, with a major geographical feature (Los Hueros Canyon) included. The tracts are contiguous to one another (the 778 acres sits to the south of the 305 acres).  As always, click on the red links to see more data!

EASEMENTS:  Two, each serving only one other party, plus the traditional acequia easement.  I can fill you in with more details!

TITLE INSURABLE:  Yes!

MORE COMMENTS:  The property is surveyed in two parcels, and are being sold as a whole.  The 778 acre parcel may be sold separately, but must sell first, and is listed at $700 per acre.  (I’ll have a separate listing for it uploaded soon.)  When you see the topographical overlays, below, you’ll understand why.

The Golden Ranch has been used recreationally (and lightly at that!), but could be developed as a retreat/campground or ranch/farm that supports animals.  Small orchard and gardens in front of the cabins were managed organically by a prior tenant, so this could make a wonderful homestead for your organic farm… The possibilities are extensive!

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…. 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 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…
