"A piece of heaven" is how this historic ranch and farm property is quite often described. Located at the end of a private road just south of Santa Fe, at the base of a spectacular, petroglyph-laden black basalt mesa, lies this one-of-a-kind rural estate known as La Estancia de Cieneguilla. Spanning approximately 45+/- acres of vibrant and varied terrain — irrigated pastures, rocky hills, and an extensive bosque - it includes both sides of the Santa Fe River for nearly a full mile. This traditional northern New Mexican ranch and farm, originally established in 1695, is truly without peer. For livestock and irrigation, there are three windmills, several ponds and stock watering tanks. Adjacent to an ancient Indian pueblo, it is bordered by nearly 50,000 acres of public land, which is well protected from future development by an Act of Congress signed by the President in 2004. A charming, inviting, and warm two-bedroom residence and a caretaker’s home or farm office are on-site, as are various utilitarian structures, including a stable and corral. Properties such as this only rarely become available and substantial water rights are included in the sale.
