PROPERTY INFORMATION
 


Welcome to Smile4u’s first ever cyber sale! We’re offering some pretty serious discounts and promotions just like all the other “cyber deals” during the holidays!

Estancia Ranchettes Unit 4-A Block 5 Lot 9 Sold
Estancia Ranchettes Unit 4-A Block 5 Lot 10 Available


1 acre lots for sale about 1 hour E of Albuquerque and 1 hour S of Santa Fe in Moriarty, New Mexico! Off grid land between Edgewood and Cline's Corner in Torrance County. It's in the part of the Estancia Ranchettes where I saw two of largest herds of antelope I've seen in my life roaming in March 2015! Interstate 40 and Historic Route 66 both run thru the subdivision! It has pretty views of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains, plenty of sunshine, fabulous sunsets, and not too long of a drive to the big city.

All of the photos were taken in July 2016 of the properties and their surrounding views. Wow was it a stormy day and the summertime monsoons put on a great show! The lightening and thunder were booming so loud we hurried to get the photos taken and back into the trucks safety! What a great place to watch a thunderstorm!



There is decent access out to this bottom part of the subdivision. A123 is one of the main drags and runs along the top of the unit just four streets north. From that point it is decent bladed dirt roads all the way to the lots. Lot #9 is a corner lot with the bladed dirt along the west and south. Interstate 40 and Route 66 lead right thru this subdivision and exit 197 off the interstate puts you on the west side of the subdivision.

These properties sit at the very bottom of the unit and across the street to the south is a cattle ranch. There is a grove of trees and a cow trough with a windmill adjoining lot 9 to the south as seen in the photos and aerial photos. A few cows wandered in when we were about done. Other than the cows there is lots of privacy with no one around! Nice!



It is covered in low grass and mostly flat with a gentle roll to the south towards Chavez Draw. From the NW to the SW is a long view of the Sandia and Manzano Mountains. On the other side of these mountains is Albuquerque! In the distance to the northwest is the town of Moriarty and beyond that at the foothills of the treed mountains is Edgewood.



Zoning allows for homes, mobile homes and some RV use. 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 did not see power in this lower part of the subdivision so alternative sources of power would want to be considered if you are looking to build now.

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 and taxes are cheap! It has plenty of sunshine, fabulous sunsets, and a quick drive to the big city.

The Sandia-Manzano Mountains are a substantial mountain area that defines the eastern edge of the middle Rio Grande valley of central New Mexico. Sandia is Spanish for watermelon and represents the beautiful reddish color of the sunsets over these mountains. 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 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 subdivision. 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! The first herd was on Santa Fe Road and they came across the prairie from the SE to the NW with the big buck crossing under the fence first. He then stood point guard as the other antelope ducked under the fence quickly racing away. Once the last one crossed they both raced away! What a great leader!

Later that day I spotted a smaller herd by unit 8. 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.



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 down the road 15 minutes 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!

A great spot for someone seeking rural land to listen to the birds singing and lizards and antelope roaming! If you have been looking for an investment in the greater Albuquerque area be sure and check this out! I think this would make a beautiful place for someone seeking a rural off grid place to hang out and escape the busy city on the weekends! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

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.



Torrance County, population 15,302, sits in the middle of New Mexico and is part of the Albuquerque Metropolitan Statistical area. Most of the county is primarily gently-rolling grassland ranging from 6000 to 6200 feet in elevation. The Manzano Mountains rising to 10,098 feet on the western edge of the county.

It's one of the most productive agricultural counties in the United States producing pinto beans, corn, hay, cattle, nursery crops and vegetables. It enjoys commercial development brought by Interstate 40 and is one of the fastest growing counties in the state. It boasts of the longest stretch remaining of Old Route 66 “The Mother Road” in the heart of New Mexico.

It has attracted a wide variety of business enterprises to the region. Tagawa Greenhouses in Estancia has 20 acres of growing space. Award-winning Sierra Blanca Brewery came to Estancia Valley in 2007 to meet their growth needs when it was time to expand. Other thriving industries include the El Cabo wind project, Single Action Shooting Society (SASS), Lonesome Wind Renewables, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Holy Energy, and numerous aviation, agriculture, energy, retail and service businesses.

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.

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.

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 E 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 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 Sandia Mountains are to the NW and the Manzano Mountains are to the SW. There are stunning sunsets over the Sandia Mountains, meaning watermelon, which Spanish explorers named because they likened the color the mountainside turns at sunset! Sandia Pueblo Indians called the mountain Bien Mur, "big mountain". W of the Sandia Mountains is Albuquerque and the interstate quickly takes you thru the mountains to the big town!

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.

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 Estancia Ranchettes. Wow was that ever amazing and stunning to see! The first group was on the far east side by Units 6 & 7. They raced across the prairie putting on quite the show! They stopped to duck under the highest point in the fence line with the big buck standing guard until the last one passed between us! I've seen this several times now in the wild when seeing antelope, deer, elk and horses. AWESOME!







Here's there herd I saw at the bottom of the subdivision in unit 7A. This is one of the largest herds I’ve ever seen in my life and can only think of one larger in Elko, Nevada years ago! 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.



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.
