Notice placed 12-30-20: We have just learned that the north-side adjacent Tract 7A Moondance Ranch ~100 ac parcel is listed at $125,000. This parcel is less varied in terrain without any "mountain or canyon" features, has no paved-highway frontage-fencing, no onsite power and has a single point of entry near the rear property line via about a mile of dirt-gravel road. It also carries a monthly homeowners association maintenance fee. Our unique Tract #6 parcel is exempted of such fee. This is not to discourage nor disparage said tract, only to note that a serious astute buyer could easily package our Tract 6 & transferable BLM lease with Tract 7A for the "listed" $350,000 total, or as negotiated, and have the premiere 280 ac consolidated property to be found south of I-25 in San Miguel County, NM!
Our Mammoth Crest Ranch (MCR) is a total of 180 Acre (141 Ac Deeded MDR Tract #6 + 39 Ac adjacent BLM Lease) beautiful, all-weather accessible, varied terrain view parcel covered with juniper trees, grass and pinon pines located at the south end of the Santa Fe Mountain Range and Santa Fe National Forest in New Mexico along the southern Rocky Mountain chain.
MCR ranges between 5,300' and 6,000' elevation. "Mammoth Crest", a central-ranch variable terrain boulder-tree-grass covered monolith, dominates the ranch skyline and majestic Apache Mesa just east of US Hwy 84 provides Mammoth Crest Ranch with a postcard front door view. Multiple views are awesome...multiple rainbows are common in summer, snow capped Santa de Cristo Mountains in winter.
MCR has over one-quarter mile NM-DOT maintained-fenced frontage on US Hwy 84 (Historic Rt. 66) between I-40 and I-25 and runs almost one mile east-to-west; the west side is also fenced. The MCR entrance is on US Hwy 84 at milepost #86, 18.2 miles south of the I-25 Romeroville Exit just west of Las Vegas, NM and 24 miles north of the I-40 US 84 Exit just west of Santa Rosa, NM.
Three segments of two named-recorded all-weather gravel roads transit MCR. Access off the main paved US 84 is via private combination lock-gate. These interior roads are maintained by the Moon Dance Ranch HOA cost-free to this parcel Tract #6 in exchange for easement. MCR is accessible by essentially any type vehicle year-round. This means that you can utilize any portion of MCR, year-round without a truck or 4-wheel drive vehicle (cars, motorcycle and motor-home!). Plus, this property could easily be subdivided without road cost...the CC&R's provide for such!
Mammoth Crest Ranch is for sale by owner or trade per this listing. Again, specifically, MCR is 141 deeded acres (Tract #6 of the historic 2000 acre Moon Dance Ranch) and an adjacent 39 acres of BLM Lease which is transferable on sale or trade. Included also will be the "MCR" NM cattle/horse brand.
Cell telephone/data service is accessible on MCR; along US 84 is electric and fiber optic service and a residential electric utility line transits the front portion of the ranch for easy electric service access. A centrally located shallow drilled well is on MCR. Groundwater is reported very good in adjacent tract wells; a new well would be required for dependable onsite drinking water. Annual San Miguel County NM real estate taxes are $1138.38; if "ag-use" exemption was applied these could be about $400/yr.
Mammoth Crest Ranch entrance coordinates are: 35°17'37.89"N and 105° 7'46.17"W . Observe MCR on Google Earth but note that the satellite view image is outdated...many more trees now! There are numerous accessible-level RV campsites on MCR with good views and miles of great hiking and/or horseback riding; there are even direct hiking/equestrian trails into the Santa Fe National Forest!
As Owners, we are open to consider real options in the desired locations listed; please be financially capable and serious traders. Your property must be "free and clear" at the time of trade, otherwise do not propose a trade. Our primary objective is to consolidate this NM ranch property (ID#3573, Ref#14775) and our 2700 sqft Arizona home (ID#3574, Ref#14778) (Total Val: $715,000) into a new geographic location home without going through the building exercise so, we have no interest in a trade for open land nor commercial-rental properties!
