ACREAGE AND DESCRIPTION
The 117 +/- deeded acres are naturally divided by the Spring Hollow drainage that traverses the land from the north to south. The western portion of the land features the executive home, barn, paddocks and maintenance shop. The home sits atop the western rim of the hollow, creating grand vistas from the backyard looking north upon the beautiful La Plata mountain range and Bridge Timber Mountain to the east. The Red Mesa and La Plata River Basin offer stunning views to the west with the southern view from the home looking down into the red hills and mesas of northern New Mexico. As the seasons change, so do the incredible views from the ranch.
Sitting atop the west bank of the Spring Hollow is the Executive Home. Offered turn-key, this luxurious adobe-style residence with 4,100+ square feet of finished space. At the center of the home is an immaculate grand room that is host to living, dining and kitchen areas. The grand room boasts high ceilings, a kitchen area encased by a high-top breakfast bar with 2-in rough edge counter tops complimented with leather wrapped stools that invite everyone to mingle while enjoying the activities in the kitchen and its executive cooking area. Your guests will be easily entertained while dining at the large, custom, wood dining table that runs down the center of the room with views that naturally draw the eye out into the backyard, green grass, water fall and mountainous skyline. After dinner, relax next to the adobe gas fireplace while lounging on the white, Italian-leather couch, adding an element of prestige while nicely blending modern with rustic.
At either end of the Grand Room you will find a pair of bedrooms, comprised of a master bedroom with attached office space and bath suite along with a separate bedroom and bath. The master bedrooms open to the back courtyard and with the other two bedrooms and baths facing the front of the home.
Additional improvements include a 35’x70’ horse barn featuring 5 stalls, 2 tack rooms, a wash bay and office. Adjacent to the barn is a 150’x250’ outdoor riding arena, a horse walker and 6 paddocks with lean-tos. Nelson waterers service the paddocks and stalls.
Most recently the home has been utilized in conjunction with the bordering Spring Hollow Equestrian Facility, serving as an executive residence for event organizers. New owners can utilize the facilities for their own personal use or combine with seasonal use and generate additional income by offering boarding through the available assets.
