16,716 acres Chama, NM

Rio Arriba County Sam Middleton Chas. S. Middleton and Son

Type: Acreage w/House

Location: This exceptional ranch is located in the heart of northern New Mexico, just west of Chama, in beautiful Rio Arriba County. The property is positioned along a major migration route for elk and mule deer heading out of the Colorado high-country toward wintering grounds in Northern New Mexico. The northern boundary of the ranch is less than one-half mile from the Colorado State Line. Acres: 16,716.52 Acres Terrain: Elevations on the ranch range from approximately 7,800 feet to over 9,800 feet near the northwest side of the property. The property offers scenic panoramic views of the productive meadows, timbered forest lands, snow-capped mountain peaks in nearby Colorado, and the beautiful Chama Valley. Topography is diverse, with the southern portion of the ranch offering open, grassy, rolling and hilly country with scattered canopies of Ponderosa Pine and Mountain Oak. As elevations increase, the south-central and eastern boundaries of the ranch become much more mountainous, with several pronounced canyons draining to the lower country. These rugged and timbered mountain slopes and ridges have sand stone rock outcroppings throughout, with timber cover increasing with elevation. Oak, Pine, Spruce, Fir, and Quaking Aspen can be found throughout the ranch. The central portion of the property is a wide, lush, creek bottom meadow that elevates to higher mountain country on the east portion of the ranch and also along the Continental Divide to the west. Water: The ranch is very well watered by Willow Creek, numerous tributaries, many mountain springs, and over 25 earthen ponds. The larger ponds are stocked with trout. Willow Creek provides the major drainage through the ranch. The creek's headwaters begin in the northern portion of the property and drain in a south to southeasterly direction throughout the entirety of the ranch. Additional sources of water include five permitted water wells. One of the wells reportedly produces approximately 80 gallons per minute. Access: Access to the ranch is by paved highway frontage. Hunting/Recreation: Hunting throughout this region of New Mexico is spectacular. Native elk and mule deer grow to Boone and Crockett size. The number of elk permits issued by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is governed by a Special Management Plan. Currently, the ranch receives 63 bull elk rifle permits and 24 bull elk bow permits. Northern New Mexico offers some of the greatest fishing opportunities in the country and trout fishing in the major ponds on the ranch is an added benefit. An 8 foot high game fence area containing approximately 2,000 acres is constructed in a very rugged mountainous portion of the eastern side of the property. The New Mexico Game and Fish Department granted the ranch a Class A Game Park Permit, which allows the ranch to raise their own private elk herd within the high fenced park. Domestic elk were shipped in from Colorado and currently there are approximately 519 privately owned elk located within the park. The advantage of a Class A Game Park is that the owner may decide his own hunting seasons and harvesting rates within the confines of the park. Improvements: A large, partial two story, hunting lodge is located in the southern portion of the ranch. The lodge features 11 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms, along with a commercial kitchen and large great room. Additionally, a 10,000 square foot barn houses the elk handling facility which is used for artificial insemination of the private elk herd. This first class set of handling pens is equipped with a hydraulic chute, sorting pens, alleys, and a maze of overhead cat walks for ease in handling the elk. The barn also contains a walk-in cooler, large shop, office, kitchen, five upstairs bedrooms (used by hunting guides), a downstairs apartment and four bathrooms. A more complete list of improvements and equipment is available. Remarks: The numerous improvements on the property are all well kept and remain in first class condition. The structural improvements, high game fencing, buried waterlines and electric lines, wells, extensive road network, and numerous other improvements offer an attractive depreciation schedule to the purchaser. This exceptional ranch is ready to operate and enjoy. This price includes all privately owned elk and an inventory of essential ranch equipment and rolling stock. Minerals: One-half of the minerals and 100% of the executive leasing rights will be included at the $41,791,300 price. Should a purchaser want 100% of the mineral rights, the seller will convey all minerals at a total consideration of $45,000,000. In today's real estate market, with minerals often times being so valuable, it is extremely seldom a ranch is ever offered for sale with 100% of the minerals available. At this price, the seller will include the Essential Ranch Equipment and also the Heavy Equipment Inventory (List Available). Price: $2,500 per acre

3,480 acres Chama, NM

Rio Arriba County Dave Harrigan and Hunter Harrigan Harrigan Land Company

Type: Acreage w/House 3800 SqFt

The Irish Harp Ranch, located between Chama, New Mexico and Pagosa Springs, Colorado, lies in the heart of some of the Rockies' best trophy mule deer and elk hunting. Deer hunters have long recognized the nearby Jicarilla Reservation as home to some of the finest trophy mule deer on the continent (many in the 190- to 200-class), and the ideal habitat of the Irish Harp Ranch attracts these quality deer as well. Add in strong populations of elk, black bear, turkey and mountain lion, and the ranch adds up to a readily-accessible, yet private piece of hunting paradise hard to find anywhere else south of Alaska. Hunters looking for a large, diversified hunting preserve for private or possible commercial use will be hard-pressed to locate a finer piece of property. Situated just south of the Colorado border, the Irish Harp Ranch covers 3000 deeded and 450 leased acres of towering ponderosa pine, scrub oak, Douglas fir and grasslands at an elevation of about 8000 feet. Mesas and canyons break up the landscape and provide numerous hideouts for mule deer and elk to reach trophy proportions. Springs and year-round Webb Creek provide ample water for wildlife. Privacy is a valuable asset here, as the ranch is almost entirely surrounded by other large ranches and has no public access. The landowner receives a liberal 19 bull elk tags annually and qualifies for landowner deer tags, making a commercial hunting operation here a serious possibility. As a comfortable hunting retreat, the ranch is a turnkey operation, featuring a spacious 3800 square-foot log lodge at the ranch headquarters. You can watch wildlife from its large covered deck, lounge with a good book in the attractive Great Room, or prepare a gourmet meal in its excellent kitchen. This beautifully-designed building complements the New Mexico mountains perfectly, winter and summer. Nearby, a three-bay, heated steel garage and machine shop gives all the space you'll need to keep the ranch running in top form. Hunting, of course, is the prime attraction at the Irish Harp Ranch, but Webb Creek feeds a trout pond near the lodge, and the world-famous San Juan River below Navajo Dam is only about 90 minutes away. Photographers will appreciate the ever-changing views of the cliffs on the ranch, and the views of the South San Juans are spectacular, particularly from the crest of Briggs Mesa. The hot springs of Pagosa Springs invite a winter's dip and are only about 30 minutes away, and history buffs will enjoy Chama, western terminus of the Cumbres and Toltec narrow gauge railroad, about 20 minutes distant. For the ultimate cultural experience, Santa Fe is only about a two-hour drive. Downhill skiers will find some of the deepest powder in the United States at Wolf Creek, only about an hour's drive. Prime big game hunting and a prime location for many other activities place the Irish Harp Ranch a cut above the crowd. New Mexico is rightly called the Land of Enchantment, and places like the Irish Harp Ranch show us why.

Type: Acreage

Surrounded by the Santa Fe National Forest with rock cliffs, forest, and broad meadows shelter Elk, Mule Deer, and many other game animals. Agua Sarca Ranch was originally settle by the migratory Navajo and Apache, this land remains unchanged. The property has been in the same Spanish family for decades and only now are they sharing they secret with the rest of the world. Location: Rancho Agua Sarca includes 117 deeded acres is located 20 Miles West of Abiquiu (Georgia OKeefe Country) on New Mexico Highway 96. Surrounded by Santa Fe National Forest near the site of a prehistoric Tewa Pueblo (Tsi-p'in-owinge') dating back to the 13th to 16th centuries. Spanish settlers ventured here in the 1730s but frequently abandoned their ranchos and farms because of the continual raiding by nomadic Indians. The intertribal warfare plus the mistrust of the settlers by the Indians was bloody and brutal. Young Indian children were captured from one tribe by another tribe and traded or sold to Hispanic settlers. These children were raised in the Hispanic culture, spoke Spanish, became Christians and were given Spanish names. They were called Genizaros. Thirty-eight Genizaro families settled the community on land grants given to them by Governor Tomas Velez Capuchin in 1754. It was Governor Capuchins idea that these families would establish a defensive position against the unrest in the area. The new community was called the Pueblo de Abiquiu and Coyote was the Western edge of this defensive community. When peace finally came to the area the Pueblo became an important trading center for a large area of the Southwest. Spanish settlements expanded but good relations with the Ute Indians deteriorated because of land disputes. In 1844 more than 1000 Utes came to Abiquiu with a list of grievances. When they could get no satisfaction about 100 Utes travelled on to Santa Fe to meet with the Governor. A fight ensued, 8 Utes were killed, and a new war continued for 5 years. A peace treaty was signed in 1849 but never ratified by Congress. Over the next 40 years Indians were given empty promises and moved to reservations northwest of Abiquiu and in Colorado. During the period of Mexican sovereignty and continuing with American control, the governing philosophy was that land grants like the one in Abiquiu area needed to be broken up and individual deeds given to people who had settled specific tracts of land. But land ownership disputes were not easily resolved. Residents had no knowledge of deeds or experience with the legalities of land ownership. Questions were complicated by the fact that if an area was not actively farmed the American government converted it to public land. Despite disputes, the Pueblo de Abiquiu and others were able to protect their land grants. In 1909 the US Court of Private Land Claims validated the entire 16,000 acres to the communities. The fate of other area land grants in the Piedre Lumbre Valley was not so clear. Today, This historic land and the good neighbors that live here are proud of their ancestors and eager to share this beautiful place with new owners. Whether guiding hunts, cutting wood, exploring the mountains, this is a rare look back and into the future!
