Extremely rare find for this price and this area! Imagine living on your own 4.85 acres just south of Albuquerque New Mexico in the valley area Canon Turrieta off the Sandia Mountain Range!
According Bernalillo County ordinances this land is zoned A2 (rural agricultural zone), that means you can have a ranch, farm, dairy, and you can display the sale of agricultural products including poultry or rabbits raised on the premises! You can even have farmers markets in your front yard and do garage sales if you want to!
Want more land than 4.85 acres? I am also selling the neighboring property which is also 4.85 acres and shares the same dirt road driveway. Details on that land here.
This property is perfect for the family that loves the convenience of being only a 38 minute drive to the big city of Albuquerque (where you can find Walmart, shops, resorts, airport, and restaurants) but who also wants to live secluded enough to have the luxury of peace and quiet among tranquil nature. No need for the busy annoying suburbia atmosphere when you can have your own ranch and live among the natural beauty of this wooded property.
GPS shows a dirt driveway that cuts right through the property to a perfectly sized clearing among the trees, so you will have easy access to drive your RV, trailer, build a tiny home, or whatever else your plans are. If you zoom out on Google maps you will see that there are neighbor ranchers, but they are far enough away that you have you own serenity. It is nice to know that you will have people in the community to sell your ranching goods to and to meet up with at the local TenPoints General Store (2.3 miles north) for basic supplies.
If you head 4.5 miles South East of your property you can find the community of Chilili which is mainly comprised of other Chilili Land Grant owners. In fact, have you ever seen the movie “Lone Survivor” with Mark Wahlberg? It was filmed right here in the Chilili area because the land is so amazing! Despite some court case that came from the movie, the owner of the land shown in the movie (the one with the deed in his name and who paid property taxes) let the public know that he hopes more production companies would consider choosing the surrounding area for future films. Imagine that! Owning land that could potentially be in future movies!
The Sandia Mountain Range lines the West area of your property and is exceptional for hiking and exploring. Check out photos of the South Sandia Peak (21 miles away), and make sure to frequent the Sandia Crest (35.5 miles away) at sunset to view that bright red glow blazing off the rocks. WOW. Talk about the perfect picture! There are a couple closer peaks and lookouts (Cedro Peak 13 miles away, and Manzano Lookout 14 miles away) that are worth taking your family to. Keep a look out for old arrowheads and caves in the mountainside rock formations since those are fun finds while exploring the area!
If you have kids you will be happy to know the closest public schools are only 10-15 miles away (in Moriarty or Tijeras) but there are a few private schools even closer (in Tijeras or Edgewood). Do your own online research to choose the best for your children.
Like fishing? Consider heading over to the Rio Grande (32 miles West) and getting a bucket full of trout to bring home for dinner.
Anytime you need to take the family on a local adventure, head up North (18 miles) to the Wildlife West Nature Park which is found along side many other attractions off the Old Route 66 and spend the day learning about New Mexico and the rich history, diverse natural wonders, and amazing wildlife.
Growing your own vegetables is a great way to eat healthier. Homegrown vegetables are so much fresher than industrially-grown, supermarket-purchased produce. And better-tasting, as well. If you have a lot of time to devote to gardening, great! If not, keep it simple. Plan accordingly. And be creative. A lot of knowledge is not required. You can start planting Architoke that can be direct sow in the month of May and can be sow indoors by the month of February.Arugula on the other hand can be planted during March-April. Green leafy veggies also can be added in your lists like Asian Greens, Broccoli, Broccoli Raab, Brokali, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbages, Chinese Cabbage, Collards, Corn Salad, Endive, Kale, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Lettuce, Mesclun, Microgreens, Mustard, Rhubarb, Salad Greens and Spinach are can be planted by the month of March – April. Beans by the month of May to July, Carrots during March-May, Corn as well by the month of May. Cucumber during May-June. Spices like garlic can be transplant by the month of March-April as well as onions. During May Cucumbers, pumpkins and watermelons can be seeded earlier by placing hot caps over the soil one week before planting. This warms the soil and helps those crops germinate more quickly. Keep the hot caps on until the plants emerge and are growing vigorously.
I invite you to do all of your own research on this land, as I have never been to this property before and am posting from the research I have found. I am aware that vacant land properties like this one are selling online for $60k and up, so I am familiar with the fact that this property is in a prime location and has all the ideal attributes for someone looking for this New Mexico lifestyle. However, I am in the business of buying and selling land fast, so to do that I sell for 50%-80% below the competition, which makes this one the best deal ever! You will not find such an amazing deal like this again so act fast. For all specific questions, do your own Google research or check the FAQ section of my site. First one to click the buy button on my site and pay for it owns it.
