I’ll bet you will be too! I found this to be a very special place, tucked away in a private riparian setting. It’s got a whale of a house site, in a lovely meadow backed by the dramatic rimrock that bounds the east side of the property. (This means a great southern orientation and a bonus of views.) Manuelas Creek bisects the length of the property, with various building sites available up and downstream too. Elk and deer sign are abundant. Wander about a bit and you’ll stumble onto a yurt platform, with a separate roofed over space. The owner says there are caves and petroglyphs (?) up high – no guarantees they’re there as I’ve not seen them (yet!). Access is paved – a small neck of the property sticks out of the trees that give such great screening and runs out to Hwy 120. Previous owners built a low water crossing and put in a well – power is about 650' away, along the highway right of way. Located in Ocate, NM, just as the pavement ends where the road heads over the mountains to Black Lake and Angel Fire…. Pretty dadgum perfect, if you ask me.

Financing: cash, new finance
