Red Rock Ranch, Union County, New Mexico - $3,850,000
+/- 6255 acres (+/- 3867 deeded and +/- 2388 state lease)
Located within an hour of the Texas state line in Northeast New Mexico, the Red Rock Ranch, a family holding, is being offered for the first time in generations. This working cattle and hunting ranch has hosted CEO's and celebrities for its incredible scenery, seclusion and trophy-class game animals. Trophy mule deer and whitetail exist and both are over the counter for deer tags. Keep an eye out for the large rocky mountain big-horn sheep herd that runs the ranch as well. Turkeys, bear, lion and small game abound...
The cattle stocking rates for the ranch would average 60-acres per pair or +/- 170 yearlings. This is truly a 6000+ acre ranch as the state lease land is landlocked and not accessible to the public except via helicopter, providing for an overall land value of +/- $615 per acre. This is one of the most scenic ranch holdings available, with vertical up to 800 ft. Located between Denver and Albuquerque, the ranch is roughly 70 miles to I -25 and just 60 miles to Clayton NM.
River Bottom and irrigated land - A very rare commodity, indeed, is to have both river bottom and mountain land contiguous. Red Rock Ranch has it! Nothing could be better for game management than to have incredible mountain cover land bordering your very own irrigated bottom land to support and manage the wildlife, consisting of turkeys, elk to 350+, trophy-class whitetails and mule deer.
Red Rock Ranch acreage includes both sides of the Travesser Creek, which includes 80-100 acres of well-irrigated river bottom and numerous fields and benches that have been active hay producers, irrigated by flood control ditches.
The ranch includes miles of excellent fencing, ranch roads and a state of the art water system with new storage tanks and drinkers....all in good working condition. Several dirt tanks compliment the existing water system.
Improvements start with a very nice modern, custom headquarters ranch house that was built in 2006. The home is 2100 sq. ft. and has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and full length front and rear wrap-around porches (John Chisum style) that overlook the ranch valley and creek bottom. Enjoy the bull elk bugling in the fall and the turkey’s gobbling in the spring while enjoying your morning coffee on one of the extensive porches. A very large, insulated, 2-bay ranch shop/garage that will accommodate 5 vehicles compliments the ranch house.
The original hand quarried stone ranch house is fully furnished, with walls more than a foot thick, keeping you warm in the winter, cool in the summer and is currently used as a hunters/outfitters headquarters for turkey, deer, elk antelope and buffalo hunts. This 2 bedroom, 1 bath ranch house is dated, but very functional. It would be ideal for a hunters guest lodge, for family visitors, a guesthouse, or caretakers home. For overnight getaways with the grand kids, or day picnics there is a homesteaders cabin up on the mesa, perfect for campouts, barbecues, or smores cookouts . The ranch also has a large equipment barn, providing an all-weather game cleaning rack, an equipment barn and a loafing shed. A +/-1000 yard rifle range compliments the ranch as well for long-range shooters.
A couple pieces of equipment and a small cattle herd are also available, not being conveyed with the ranch, but could be purchased under separate contract. Seller will also convey 50% of minerals owned.
Red Rock Ranch is an incredible value, not equaled on the market today. Call for a qualified showing. Scheduled appointments required. Co-brokers welcome.
