About 317 Acres Cr 57a

Stunning, pristine land for your green living dream, country retreat, small ranch, farm, or eco-home compound. This 317-acre off-grid conservation property is sited in a beautiful high desert landscape with vast horizons and 360 views of four mountain ranges. The topography is varied with the Los Tanos watershed meandering through lush grasslands, pinon and juniper forests, rock outcroppings, and hidden arroyos. A 600 sq. ft. adobe farm-house with solar power and an heirloom woodstove sits near an orchard and bio-diverse perennial gardens. A well irrigates the garden and is plumbed to the house. A second well for livestock/irrigation is permitted at 16-acre feet. A new, 140 square foot tiny house on a 2020 trailer sits at a distance from the farmhouse for privacy; but could be moved to your chosen site. The property offers numerous building sites within a 60-acre building envelope, surveyed and ready to create your dream house or retreat compound. The remainder of the property is under conservation easements. Surrounded by nature, privacy, dark skies, and peaceful environs, the property borders over 12,000 acres of BLM lands offering endless exploration opportunities. Perfect for horses and light farming, the current use has been a retreat center and sustainable living farm. Locally referred to as the "Ball Ranch", a nonprofit has owned it for the past 16 years. Prior owners include the Nature Conservancy and the Edmund Ball family of the famed Ball canning jars. Steeped in cultural history, this legacy property is rich in archaeological and paleontological significance. Private, but not isolated; Santa Fe, an international art and cultural mecca is 30 minutes to the north and Albuquerque is to the south with schools, shopping, dining, and other conveniences just 20 minutes away. 1.8 miles from county/state-maintained CR 57A/Highway 22, between the Turquoise Trail and I-25. Difficult to find and behind locked gates, please make an appointment to see.
