PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

1.55 acres of land in Moriarty, New Mexico about an hour E of Albuquerque and an hour S of Santa Fe. The sunset was stunning from these 2 off grid rural properties with no one around! There's a tear down shed and an interesting collection of sandstone and rocks piled around the property. There by Edgewood and Cline's Corner, NM and not too far off Interstate 40 and Historic Route 66 in Torrance County.

All of the photos were taken of the property and its surrounding views in February 2018. The property is being sold as is. They are corner lots on Vegas Drive and Santa Fe Road. Santa Fe Road is washed out to the north where Chavez Draw is. Do not follow what your GPS says! You will need to come in from the south on Pecos Rd and then head north up Santa Fe Road. I included an aerial shot along the mesa showing the road dropping off so be careful!I

There is a dilapidated shed on the property and used building materials strewn about the property as seen in images 12, 13, and 14. I saw a few interesting piles of rocks just a short way from the shed. You can see the variety of rocks gathered on the property in images 6, 24, 26, and 27. The properties are already subdivided but we want to keep them together as they make such a nice chunk of land!

Moriarty and Edgewood are across the valley to the W and beyond them are beautiful views of the long range of the Sandia Mountains and Manzano Mountains from the SW to the NW! I spent a few hours at the property watching the sun go down and collecting a bit of the gorgeous sandstone that was on the property! Wow was it ever a stunning sunset! Sandia is Spanish for watermelon and represents the beautiful reddish color of the sunsets over these mountains!



The Sandia-Manzano Mountains are a substantial mountain area that defines the eastern edge of the middle Rio Grande valley of central New Mexico. Their elevation changes provide recreational opportunities including winter skiing and cool summer hiking. The entire mountain chain comprises two parts, the Sandia Mountains to the north, and the Manzano Mountains to the south, separated by Tijeras Canyon, through which runs Interstate 40, following the path of historic U.S. Route 66.

The area reminds me of the start of the Great Plains. I read that it sits on the very western edge of the Llano Estacado, aka the Staked Plain, one of the largest mesas / tablelands in North America. Once referred to as the Great American Desert, colonial times found people passing by this area seeking better land further west. By the mid-19th century, people had begun settling here as they realized it was well suited for farming as large portions of the region sit atop one of the world's largest underground reservoirs, the Ogallala Aquifer.

The Valley of the Estancia Ranchettes is located six miles east of Moriarty. Interstate 40 and Historic Route 66 run right thru through it and there is an on ramp onto I40 on the west. It a rural area with a few residents sprinkled about and for the most part remains undeveloped with plenty of privacy! It was subdivided years ago and there are no covenants or home owners association. It has plenty of sunshine, fabulous sunsets, and a quick drive to the big city.

The region is a cold semi-arid climate with long hot summers and cold winters and low rainfall. It’s made up of grassland and mesas and lots of playa lakes that seasonally fill up after a thunderstorm, but rains don’t come frequently. These ponds are important habitat for waterfowl and pronghorn and deer are often found around these ponds. And I have sure seen some pretty big herds of antelope here!



In March 2015, I spotted two huge herds of antelope in the SE corner of the Estancia Ranchettes by units 6, 7 & 7A. These were two of the largest herds I’ve ever seen in my life and can only think of one larger in Elko, Nevada years ago! Wow was that ever amazing and stunning to see! They raced across the prairie putting on quite the show! And I also spotted a smaller herd by unit 8 out grazing.

I wondered why so many of them had horns and learned that about 40% of the females have horns that don't get any longer than their ears. The buck's horns are up to 15 inches long and have the distinctive prong on the front which gave the species its name. Another difference between males and females is the black patch on the jaw below the eye of the males.

On the west side of the Sandia Mountains is Albuquerque and the interstate quickly takes you thru the mountains to the big town! Moriarty and Edgewood are across the valley to the west on the east side of the Sandia Mountains. Moriarty sits at the Junction of I40 and Hwy 41 and also boasts of the longest stretch remaining of Old Route 66 “The Mother Road” in the heart of New Mexico. It’s centrally located 35 E of Albuquerque and 56 miles S of Santa Fe. Edgewood is about 10 minutes west of Moriarty and its population grew 88% from 2000 to 2010 and it opened a Wal-Mart in 2008.

Cline's Corner is a cute famous stop along Old Route 66 to the east and I have enjoyed a few lunches at the cafe and they have a great little gift shop. When I stopped by in January 2014 they were moving dirt and I was told they were going to put in a new truck stop there. And I took another photo of me with the totem pole I think is beautiful! I included a photo of me and my sister standing in front of their totem pole as well some real cowboys I met there a few years. It’s a fun place and reflective of the rural cowboy and Indian country this part of New Mexico is!

Zoning allows for homes and mobile homes. It’s a rural area with a few residents sprinkled about and for the most part remains undeveloped with plenty of privacy! It was subdivided years ago and there are no covenants or home owners association and cheap taxes. It has plenty of sunshine, fabulous sunsets, and a quick hour’s drive to the big city if you have to go!

I thought it would make a great spot for someone seeking rural off grid cheap land to watch the sunsets and listen to the birds signing and watch the antelope roam! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

ADDITIONAL PHOTOS

Torrance County, Moriarty and The Valley of the Estancia Ranchettes Photos

A video I made of the Valley of the Estancia Ranchettes and Moriarty, New Mexico.



The growing town of Moriarty, New Mexico is about 1/2 hour east of Albuquerque and an hour south of Santa Fe at the Junction of Interstate 40 and Highway 41. Moriarty is mostly a ranching and farming community but its close proximity to Albuquerque is making this small town a fast growing community. The vast open undisturbed range is home to farmers, ranchers and wildlife.

It boasts of the longest stretch remaining of Old Route 66 “The Mother Road” in the heart of New Mexico. Edgewood is about 10 minutes west of Moriarty where Wal-Mart opened in 2008

Torrance County is one of the most productive agricultural counties in the United States producing pinto beans, corn, hay, cattle, nursery crops and vegetables. Today it enjoys commercial development brought by Interstate 40 and is one of the fastest growing counties in the state.

With an elevation of over 6,000 feet it is considered ideal weather by many with only 11.5 inches of precipitation annually. Sunny days abound with mild winter temperatures of 45 degrees to 87 degrees in the summertime.

The Sandia Mountains are to the NW and the Manzano Mountains are to the SW. There are stunning sunsets over the Sandia Mountains to the west! Spanish explorers named the mountains Sandia because they likened the color the mountainside turns at sunset to that of a watermelon. Sandia is Spanish for watermelon. On almost any given evening you can see what they meant! The Sandia Pueblo Indians called the mountain Bien Mur, "big mountain".

The Valley of the Estancia Ranchettes is a very easy subdivision to locate just east of the town of Moriarty off of Interstate 40. Estancia is Spanish for cattle ranch and there are cows, horses and a few antelope grazing about. There are a few residents sprinkled about but for the most part remains undeveloped. Old Route 66 runs thru the northern part along the Interstate. It is gentle rolling hills with scattered sagebrush, native plants and grasses.

Estancia, the Torrance County seat, is a small rural town of about 1600 people. In addition to the county offices and Sheriff’s Office, it offers a post office, grocery store, Dollar Store, gas stations, restaurants, and the Estancia Schools as well as the necessary fire, police and Emergency Medical Services. It’s surrounded by an agricultural community that has been the foundation of the Town for more than 100 years. Ranching and farming industries remain strong influences to the flavor of life in the Estancia Valley and well as key contributing economic factors in the area.

Cline's Corner is a cute famous stop along Old Route 66 down the road 45 minutes east of Moriarty and I have enjoyed a few lunches at the cafe and they have a great little gift shop. I included a photo of me and my sister standing in front of their totem pole last summer as well as me and some real cowboys a few years ago out front! Fun place indeed and it is reflective of the rural cowboy and Indian country this part of New Mexico is!

The Mountainair Ranger District in the Cibola National Forest is made up of the Gallinas and Manzano Mountains. The Manzano Mountains are located primarily in Torrance County with a small section on the west side of the mountain located in Valencia County.

Click here for the Sandia Mountain and Manzano Mountain Wilderness Areas in the Cibola National Forest website. The Sandia's offer 37,200 acres and 120 miles of trails but if you prefer solitude they say you should stick to the Manzano's which offers 37,200 acres and 64 miles of trails.
