Welcome to the Wild West! This +/-488.5 acre ranch near Grants, NM provides limitless views of the surrounding mountains, mesas and open space to envision and create your own private estate. Conveniently located 15 minutes from I-40, this rural retreat offers a fantastic location to get away from it all, but without the hassle of remote living! Land The property is fully fenced and lies between two large sections of the Cibola National Forest.  Borders BLM at it’s northwest corner.  Land has some slight elevation changes and a variety of ground cover is present.  Current owner runs a small cattle herd full-time so land is currently heavily grazed.  Elk are frequently observed traversing a corner of the property near the highway, and some easy improvements such as dirt tanks and food plots could dramatically increase the property’s hunting value. Improvements The property features an authentic adobe home built by the owner in 1985 tucked behind a small mesa to provide complete privacy.  The cozy home has two bedrooms and is heated via wood stove.  The adobe construction ensures that the home stays cool in even the hottest summers.  This would be a great caretakers cottage or place to live while building main estate. There is also a corral, a 40x40x8 shipping container currently used for hay storage, a two-vehicle carport, and two nice wooden storage sheds. Biggest improvement to the property recently is a brand new well, drilled in 2023 with reverse-osmosis system and pressure tank installed, are housed in another wooden shed to shield it from the elements.
