The Ultimate Equestrian Facility and Luxury Home
This stunning, approximately 97 acre river front property, located 40 minutes north of Santa Fe, is one of the most beautiful ranches in Northern New Mexico. Because it borders the Rio Grande River with 224.4 acre feet of water rights, plus has six wells, this professional equestrian facility and fabulous home are a very rare and versatile property. The ranch has large old growth cottonwoods, thirteen large cross-fenced and irrigated pastures with automatic waterers, acequias, large ponds, and vibrant gardens, all surrounded by views of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Created by well respected Hollywood designer and horse breeder Barbara Windom, every inch of this ranch is gorgeous, well designed, and functional. Improvements include a grand covered arena, five large, pipe fenced corrals with spacious run-in-shelters and automatic watering systems. There are two foaling stalls, with a well-appointed apartment between, for safe and monitored foaling, a 4 stall wash rack, 2 beautiful stables with 11 stalls equipped with automatic waterers and attached runs, 3 tack rooms, 2 covered stalls for stallions with attached runs, 4 grass turn outs with pipe corrals for stallions, a round pen and outdoor warm up arena, a large hay barn with attached workshop and equipment bay for truck, tractor and equipment. The ranch also has over fifteen additional horse stalls for use during public events such as equine clinics and workshops. The gorgeous Northern New Mexico pitched roof main house, with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, is romantic and nurturing. The kitchen and baths are custom tiled by a local artist and the interior plaster walls are naturally colored from the minerals found at remote locations around the ranch. There are also two caretakers’ homes and a beautiful guest casita. The soft sand footing and ranch roads throughout the property allow for private trail riding without ever having to leave the property. There is a state-of-the-art Equestrian Obstacle Course built into the bosque, or river forest, running alongside the Rio Grande.
