12.35 acres of beautiful land consisting of rolling basalt, ponderosa, pinon, and juniper sale. No HOA, covenants or restrictions. Perfect for horse owners, hunting enthusiasts, or someone who just wants to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

The property is located 1 mi south of the intersection in Tres Piedras. Approx 2000 feet east from highway 285, the property is bordered by the old Chile Line Railway to the west. There is direct platted access (no easement needed) from the highway through the Highlands subdivision to the west. The telephone is currently available on-site. Solar/wind required for electricity in future.

There is a large basalt flow that crosses the property, catching water and creating a beautiful oasis of wildflowers and trees in the summertime. Most of the property was disked for sage in 2010, and I have been working to restore the grasses that are native to the high desert. 1/2 mile from the Petaca - a seasonal river that flows during snowmelt runoff.

Water Well is already dug and tested @ 25GPM. The depth of well is 450ft with water available at 350ft.

Approx 200 railroad ties already dropped in the ground for horse corral and pasture. Thousands of acres of vacant land surrounding.

2 Cisterns included in sale - 1@1600G and buried (water doesn't freeze) and 1 @450G black above ground.

The property was platted to allow for a small ultralight airstrip on the eastern side. This feature was never developed, but there is a 1300 ft x 100ft runway available for small aircraft.

Currently on the property is a 1980s Bluebird School bus that has been converted to a simple living space. Woodstove, copper plated counter tops and a sink allow you a great space to escape for a summer getaway or a camping retreat. The property has an E911 address, allowing for the owner to get residency in Taos County if desired. There is a pergola on the east side of the bus that provides shade and shelter. Outhouse with drain field.

Yurt no longer available.

Property qualifies for subdivision, administrative lot splits, and family transfers to divide the land.

Tres Piedras is known for its spectacular hunting and fishing, rock climbing, archeology, and solitude.
