Sprawling Acreage To Build Or Hunt On

Power At The Lot Line
Price: $48,000.00

Price: $34,000.00

Earnest Money Deposit: $1,000.00
This forty acre property is a combination of two adjacent twenty acre parcels. It is located just north of Tres Piedras and fifteen miles south of the Colorado state line. It sits to the west of the 285, from which you can easily access the land.   

Power can be found at the edge of the adjacent lot by a small cabin. This should make it easier and more affordable to get power extended out to the subject property.

Anyone looking to build their new ranch out here among the blue skies and rolling hills of northern New Mexico will be glad to know that this area is a hunter’s paradise and boasts an ample amount of elk, mule deer and wild turkey. Additionally, this property sits in close proximity to The Timbers at Chama and Fishtail Ranch, two excellent spots for big game hunting.

If hunting isn’t your thing, you’ll be glad to know that this property is ideally located less than an hour from the skiing of Taos to your east, and the water sports of the El Vado and Heron Lakes to your west. Abiquiu Lake is a short drive to the south and the Navajo Marina, which offers numerous types of boat and party boat rentals is only an hour to your west in nearby San Juan County. Boat rental is available at all of these locations, so even if you don’t own your own boat you’ll still be able to enjoy all of the water sports, fishing and recreation activities offered at these nearby lakes.

Rio Arriba County Planning & Zoning office is fairly permissive about the types of structures that get built within its borders. If you’re looking to build a ranch or single family home on this land, you should have little difficulty. If you’re looking to do something more “unconventional” such as build a shipping container or tiny home, you’re also likely to be met with little resistance. Similarly, mobile homes, modular and site built homes would be allowed here as well.

This property was originally listed for $48,000 and was the cheapest 40 acre lot on the market in Rio Arriba County. Having been in inventory for some time now, we’ve decided to lower the price to the even more affordable $34,000 price tag listed above.

This property was closed on and its title insured through Rio Arriba Title & Escrow.

NOTE: We are requesting an upfront Non-Refundable Earnest Money Deposit of $1,000. This is not an installment sale and there is no financing offered. This is a cash transaction. After we have your Deposit we will contact you about how to proceed with finalizing the purchase, whether it be by credit card, wire transfer or title & escrow. If you elect to close through escrow, buyer will be responsible for all closing costs.
