Located in the picturesque countryside of Northern New Mexico, this .88 Acre property is perfect for anyone looking for a seasonal recreation spot or a year round home site. Situated close to both the El Vado and Heron Lakes youll have easy access to all the great boating and water sports afforded by those two State Parks. Similarly, this property sits in close proximity to the Rio Chama River where you can enjoy some of the best fly fishing in New Mexico. Great hunting can be found here as well as Elk, Mule Deer and Turkey are common throughout the region and Big Game Hunting is offered in nearby upscale hunting retreats such as Fishtail Ranch and The Timbers at Chama. This bucolic region is not only home to great outdoor activities but also quiet small town living. The county seat of Tierra Amarilla is a half mile from this land and boasts stores, schools and churches, making this - in addition to all its other great attributes - the perfect place to raise a family.
Things To Know:
Rio Arriba County has a more laid back attitude about what you can and can not do with real property in their jurisdiction. The county itself has one zoning designation (Rural Residential) and applies it to most all the land including this subdivision. While they do not allow you to live indiscriminately out of your RV, you can park and camp one in the same spot for up to 3 months, which is longer than youll find in most parts of New Mexico. Additionally, you can apply for an extension without a building permit and you will most likely be granted it provided youve kept the area clean (were told this particularly has to do with how youre disposing of waste).
From the 573, there is a road with a gate which will lead you out to this property. Were told the gate is open most days until 5PM. Fortunately there are at least four other points of ingress/egress to access the land. It should be noted, however, that a four wheel drive or other off-road capable vehicle will be needed the closer you get to the subject property as the last half mile consists only of dirt roads.
While there is no power source on the property itself, power lines can be found a half mile away in the residential area adjacent to Highway 162.
In rural areas of New Mexico, you need at least 3/4 of an acre to get permits for a well, or septic installation and to build a conventional (meaning, not off-grid) home. While these permits can be issued on smaller size lots, it typically comes with additional requirements that can make the process prohibitively expensive. As this lot is slightly larger than the 3/4 acre threshold, you will not have any difficulty getting the requisite permits for building.
