Salt Creek Ranch
Salt Creek Ranch, Grant County, New MexicoOn the Trail of the Mountain Spirits Scenic Byway, en route to the Gila Cliff Ruins Monument, above the gorgeous 72-acre Lake Roberts, lies the +/- 38-acre Salt Creek Ranch. Hidden up the Mimbres River Valley, about 40 minutes from Silver City, is an area that many have retired to with very low taxes, incredibly mild four-season climate, and 365 days a year of recreation. The ranch is just 4 hours to Albuquerque, 3.5 hours to Tucson, 3.5 hours to El Paso and 45 minutes from Silver City. Meticulously maintained as a contractor's family getaway, Salt Creek Ranch has most all the boxes checked. The property borders thousands of acres of the Gila National Forest, you can visit the Ruins, you’re a few minutes from public Lake Roberts, which is stocked with trout and small mouth bass, and is turn-key ready for your weekend getaway, corporate retreat, recreational mecca, equestrian ranch, or the perfect family legacy ranch. Your private and secluded property has year-round access, full power and a backup generator. When you cross the creek, lined with monster cottonwoods and then opening up into a meadow, you’ll be met by 1 to 3 coveys of Gambel’s quail. Mule Deer, elk and javelina all frequent the ranch. It would take years and thousands of dollars to duplicate the value that Salt Creek Ranch offers. Very few ranch properties come available in this area. The equipment list that will convey with the ranch includes a John Deere tractor & implements, Electric Polaris Ranger, jon boat and kayaks. The property has two permitted wells, allowing for +/-1.5 + 2.5 acre feet of water rights complete with water storage and irrigation system.
