Rare, large 394-acre property about 30 minutes from the city of Santa Fe offers privacy and the pristine beauty of the high desert mountains. Property includes a 1900 +/- sq. ft. home with a flexible floor plan with options for an art/photography studio. This Galisteo Basin conservation property has two legal parcels: a 354 and a 40 acre parcel. Approximately one mile of the Galisteo River runs through the land. Ideal for estate, equestrian full-time southwestern living or a serene retreat. Nature and culture intertwine here. Signs of ancient cultures dot the land. Native wildlife traverse the many habitats of dense bosque on the northern edge, rocky outcroppings, open grasslands in the center, and gentle slopes with pinon-juniper woodlands on the southern edge. Dark night skies are illuminated by clear constellations, galaxies, planets and meteor showers. This is a place where people and the natural world coexist.

Homes here are early 20th century wooden structures painted a variety of colors. Just north of Madrid is Cerrillos, a traditional New Mexico village of older adobes and quaint shops.
The Turquoise Trail! A beautiful road from Santa Fe all the way to Albuquerque.
