Description

Majestic. Stunning. Paradise. These words perfectly describe this once in a lifetime offering.

Imagine sitting quietly on an early, fall morning enjoying the sheer beauty and listening to the bugle of a bull as hundreds of elk move back to the sanctuary of tall timber on the ranch. Water is key to life in the mountains, 6 Mile and Probar Creeks meander through the ranch providing life to game both large and small. With ponds being fed by the live water flowing through the ranch, the fishing is outstanding. In addition, significant water rights convey allowing a new owner many options to expand the already amazing trout experience. Lying in the center of the Golden Triangle for New Mexico winter sports, the ranch is minutes away from Angel Fire Resort, Red River Ski area, and Taos Ski Valley. If searching for that perfect year-round family estate or looking for development potential, 6 Mile Creek Ranch is the place for you.

Improvements:

The ranch boasts a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom home largely in a ranch style dcor. There is also a three bay garage/barn next to the main house with cattle corals behind the main compound. A water well services the main house while the remainder of the ranch is watered via the creek and pond system present.

Water Rights: The ranch possesses 494.5 ac/ft of adjudicated water rights. Priority dates on the water rights are 1882, 1883, and 1902. These rights stem from water both from the Six Mile Creek and the Pobar Creek. Both streams flow through the ranch and are main sources of water for Eagles Nest Lake. These rights significantly add to the value of the ranch.

Five to seven bulls are harvested each year to maintain good age structure within the bull herd.

Fishing:

The ranch maintains three primary, fishing lakes and two smaller ponds. The lakes are regularly stocked and run for trophy fish production. Rainbow, Brooke, Brown, and Cutthroat are the primary species with trophies being produced over the years.
