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

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!

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 and survey page, you’ll understand why.
