No Planning & Zoning Laws
Earnest Money Deposit: $500.00
This property is the last piece of privately owned land on this part of Todosio Canyon and backs up to hundreds of acres of BLM property, making it ideal for exploration. Similarly, because it is situated close to the cliffs, whoever purchases this will have beautiful, unobstructed views of the Pine River below.
Like much of the land situated close to the canyons around the marina, a portion of this property is comprised of a rocky terrain. Some may enjoy this dynamic topography and unique look. For others, however, this may pose a problem for whatever they plan to build or park on the land. And while there are flat, buildable sections of land (see photo gallery), anyone interested in purchasing this parcel is encouraged to scout the property beforehand. UPDATE: As of 3/19 this property has been surveyed and staked by local surveyors Cheney, Walters & Echols. Ergo, anyone interested in scouting this land will be able to more accurately determine its boundaries.
As there are no planning & zoning laws in this part of the county, this property is ideal for those looking to experiment with alternative or off grid housing such as a tiny home, container home, earth ship home, or for those who just want to live out of their RV.
One of the neighboring property owners has erected some makeshift gate roughly 500 feet from the property boundary. The gate itself seems abandoned and our photographer had no problem accessing the property either time he scouted it. All this being said, we're doing our best to find out who owns this gate and to negotiate access from them. UPDATE: From all the research we've been able to do, the owners of the gate seem to be a family out of Denver that rarely visits the area. As this property has now been scouted by numerous potential buyers without any difficulty or resistance from the locals who live there, it seems the gate is a non-issue. Additionally, as New Mexico law stipulates that no one can block you from accessing land you own, should this gate ever become a problem, a call to the local sheriff will likely be all that's required to remedy the situation.
The nearest power lines end roughly a mile away from the property along the access road. Solar may be a good and affordable alternative or you may want to contact the local power company to see what it would cost to have the lines extended out to this specific parcel.
Priced at $9,500 this is the cheapest five acre lot in San Juan County either on the MLS or the internet and is second only to our other 4.76 acre lot in the region. The next lowest like-type property after that is listed for $20,000, making this the type of incredible savings we pride ourselves on here at Hemingway Land.
This property was closed on and its title insured through San Juan Title.
