This impeccably distinguished fenced and gated 500 acre retreat, sits just outside the Santa Fe National Forest and the Gascon Trail near Rociada, New Mexico affording excellent hiking and horseback riding opportunities, yet is still close to Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Taos, Sipapu and Angel Fire (all easy drives for a day of golfing at Penderies Golf Resort, shopping, skiing or dining). This extensively updated compound includes a 2,190 sq.ft. main house outfitted with vigas & latillas, maple floors, an expansive master with cozy fireplace and open concept kitchen and living area complete with upscale appliances and radiant heat. The 1,032 sq.ft. adobe guesthouse is set back from the property with a lovely fireplace, granite counters and warm living spaces. Other improvements include a 3-car garage/studio and elk room, 3-stall mechanics garage, 4-stall horse barn and rustic log cabin. The property is diverse in character with alpine and aspen meadows all accessed through various terrain with several spring fed ponds and water sources onsite. Many historic features with unsurpassed views as backdrops inspire the senses, not to mention the plethora of birds and wildlife usually in sight. Private and secluded, the ranch offers peace, yet affords opportunities for those looking to utilize the property agriculturally.
