Indulge your senses in this one of a kind nature preserve just minutes to the Santa Fe Plaza. This extremely rare ~80 acre homestead has been in the same family since 1897. The Garcia Ranch is fenced, gated and adjacent to the Santa Fe National Forest offering extreme privacy in a valley with rich soil where the headwaters of the Apache Creek flows through. There are underground utilities (power, telephone) and two transformers along with a +/- 260 ft. deep well. Near one of the transformers is an excellent building site with commanding mountain views that has great access. There is also a modest 2 bedroom, 1 bath home that would make a nice guest home or care taker quarters. Big views of neighboring peaks and a variety of tree coverage which includes Ponderosa Pine, Douglas Fir, Blue Spruce, Pinon, Cedar, Juniper, Cottonwoods, Oak, and a variety of flora complete this offering. There are 3 meadows which grace this property and several old growth trees. In the past these meadows were once organically farmed by the Garcia's utilizing permaculture farming techniques. Wildlife includes: deer, turkey, bear, and several bird species. Ride your horses or hike directly into the Santa Fe National Forest! A must see for the discriminating land buyer who wants privacy and convenience to Santa Fe. Would make for a great equestrian or livestock property!
As the Old Santa Fe Trail winds north, these lovely, heavily-forested communities run alongside. Located in the foothills of the Sangres, the lower elevations provide rolling hills of pinon and juniper with the high-elevation nestled in mountainous terrain. All have wonderful views of the Sandias and famous Santa Fe sunsets. Most lots start at 2.5 acres and some are over ten.
