SOLD***In the northcentral region of New Mexico is a land of many

colors affectionately known as O'Keeffe Country. Here you will find the "Ranch

of the West" nestled against a magnificent yellow bluff and the Canjilon Creek

along US Hwy 84 just 5 miles north of the Ghost Ranch. The landscape of this charming

50-acre parcel ranges from the canyon floor almost to the rim rock with access

to thousands of acres of the Carson National Forest. The beautifully

constructed two story, three-bedroom, three-bath 3,156 sq ft home was designed to allow its

inhabitants to bask in the surrounding beauty with views in all directions.

Nestled in a large mott of oaks, with one of the enormous yellow bluffs and the

creek as its backdrop. Watch the sun rise in the east or enjoy the outdoor

fireplace with large rock patio in the evening.

With its running water and high mesa with awe inspiring

views of the Cerro Perdenal, Ghost Ranch, and Abiquiu Lake and thousands of

acres of the Carson Forest adjoining the property, there is something for


Artisan - The huge windows on all sides of the house and two

walk-out decks will provide hours of enjoyment. Whether just enjoying the view

or using the diverse landscape as your model for painting, drawing,

sculpting, or photographing, there will be no shortage of inspiration for the

amateur or professional artist. Less than two hours from the art communities of

Santa Fe or Taos just adds to the charm of this unique area.

Outdoor Enthusiast - Whether you are into hiking or

recreational vehicles, the Carson National Forest boasts 1.5 million acres with

plenty of room to roam. If fishing or water sports are more interesting,

Abiquiu, El Vado, and Lake Heron State parks are less than an hour from the

property. Rio Chama is also great for fly fishing. Cross country and downhill

skiing, snowmobiling, and rafting are all available within a short drive. The

general vicinity is also popular for elk and mule deer hunters on both public

and private land.

Equestrian - With 50 acres on the property and the adjoining

national forest, enjoy hours of endless riding and exploring. The property has

a fenced riding area with good ground and a round pen to warm up your mount

before starting out for the day.

Attractions -North 30 minutes on the Colorado state line

lies the village of Chama, NM, with its famous Cumbres and Toltec Narrow Gauge

Railroad and majestic mountain peaks. Fifty miles further and you can enjoy the

hot springs in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, or ski Wolf Creek. Further down the

road 60 miles is Durango, CO, with another famous train to Silverton, CO. To

the west are some of the most well-known sites of ancient civilization such as

Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde. Travel east for a short visit to the Rio Grande

Gorge or the Taos Pueblo. Ski areas here include Angel Fire and Red River.

Santa Fe with its famous plaza and Indian Market are just over an hour to the

south. These are just a few of the villages, towns, and sites that are unique

to northern New Mexico.

Elevations - 6700-6780

Vegetation - Mostly native grasses, oak motts, cottonwoods,

and willows.

Easy access gravel road from US Highway 84.
