PROPERTY INFORMATION
 

HAPPY 12TH BIRTHDAY BUDDY!



IF YOU GO BY THE RULE OF THUMB THAT 1 HUMAN YEAR = 7 DOG YEARS THAT MAKES BUDDY 84!


I sure love Buddy's toothless smile! He lost his first few teeth playing "The Bones Are All Mine" with his sister Angel, a big yellow lab when he was about 3. He would take all her rawhide bones, line them up under my desk in a perfect row and guard them with his life. At times there were 6 or 7 bones. Bones are a great way to give an energetic dog hours of jaw exercise and we dealt with Buddy's control issue by buying them in bulk at Costco and handed Angel new ones frequently.

One day Angel decided she was done playing the game. It went down in front of me, she told him that was her bone and warned him not to take it. He stepped forward and took it anyway. She opened her jaw and wrapped it around his neck and pushed him down. He screamed bloody murder and wiggled fiercly trying to get away. Before I knew it she let him go, no puncture wounds, no scrapes. But a few months later his breath smelled like he was eating rotten meat and out came a few rotten teeth! I think Angel gets credit for 5 of the missing 8 teeth in his mouth.

Then there's the time with the coyote. I usually only let Buddy go outside in the morning if all my other big dogs are out with him. But one morning I had 2 females inside as I was taking them to get spayed. I heard my big dog let out a roar and saw a coyote taking off across the field. I let my two females out and watched them chase the coyote the rest of the way off the property and started calling for Buddy. I searched for about 45 minutes realizing I was on a recovery mission, my heart broken.

As I came back to the house I saw Buddy being brought up the hill by my 5 other dogs! He was limping bad, covered in blood and mud, oh you should have seen him - the most beautiful sight to my eyes! My little tough man was alive! He had been wearing a spiked Harley collar and the 12 or so puncture wounds on his neck only went so deep! And that coyote who gets credit for the other 3 missing teeth, well you should have seen it running away after meeting Bud the Stud!


SO HE'S MISSING A FEW TEETH! I THINK THAT MAKES HIS SMILE MORE HANDSOME!

So my boyfriend is now usually seen sleeping with his tongue hanging out his mouth, but I happen to think he's still good looking! How coud I not love that smile! I've cared for hundreds of animals in my life but never before have I met an animal like him. Whether I'm laughing, crying, cleaning, cooking, meditating, sleeping or exploring, there he is!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY TOOTHLESS WONDER!




0.541 acre treed land for sale in Timberon, New Mexico with power at the adjoining lot and water and phone in the street! It's nestled high in the Sacramento Mountains at 6996 feet overlooking the treed hillsides! It’s about 139 miles NE of El Paso Texas and 50 miles SE of Alamogordo, NM. The property sits about 1 mile from the Lincoln National Forest! With water already in the street it’s a perfect place for a cabin, home or RV!

All of the photos were taken in July 2016 of the property and its surrounding views. Bacon Drive is an graveled road running along the north of the property that was a bit overgrown from lack of use but still easily drivable. There is a neighbor adjoining it that was having a septic tank installed and they have power to their lot so power is next door at lot #49! You will need to contact the local power company for the cost of bringing it to the property. There is also water and phone in the street! The neighbors have a nice setup with an RV. I’m not sure if they are building a home as we only spoke to the septic installers.

She’s a pretty lot made up of a gentle rolling hill from the north down to the south. The trees are pretty thick along the front of the property but as we walked to the back it was thinner and looks like a touch lightening might have burned a few of the trees in the area a few years ago by the old tangled wood/trees. But the clearing gives a really beautiful view off the back of the property of the treed hillsides! There’s quite a variety of shrubs, prickly pear, and grass in the open meadows.

There is water in the street which is called standby water. If you wanted to hook up to water you would simply need to pay the connection fee and save the cost of drilling for a well or paying to pull it down the street as many properties in Timberon do not have water in the street! The annual fee for standby water is $61.15 per year.

The zoning allows for homes, double-wide mobile homes, as well as 30 days per year of recreational RV use. If a septic was installed you would be able to use it up to 180 days per year with a recreational vehicle.

Timberon is a big forest filled with an abundance of animals roaming, tall pines and junipers and not too many people considering it encompasses about 9,000 acres and home to about 300 people. It’s adjoins the Lincoln National Forest, BLM lands, White Sands Desert and State lands. Many use it seasonally or on the weekends to escape to a quiet getaway in the woods. It has four seasons with cooler summertime temperatures at the higher elevation and mild winters although I have been up here during the snow.

It also offers many amenities including as a 9-hole golf course with seasonal pro shop, a 4,750 foot long private airstrip for small planes, helicopter pad, seasonal swimming pool, fire station, convenience stores, RV Park, and more! There is a $30 Facility and Services Fee to help maintain these amenities.

It’s about a 45 minute beautiful scenic drive south of Cloudcroft, the main town on this part of the mountain that has skiing in the wintertime. Alamogordo is the next largest city and has just about anything you need there including a Wal-Mart and several hotels and restaurants.

It had been several years since we visited Timberon and included several photos of our two day trip in July 2016 in Amber's Adventure Around Timberon below! We spent the night in Cloudcroft, an adorable pioneer village also in the Sacramento Mountains about 45 minutes north.

The first time we visited Timberon we entered through the south entrance which winds through the military range which is where the wild oryx were. This is quite the journey with signs posted along the way warning you not to leave the road! We then journeyed through some old dry river beds before winding our way into Timberon. I am glad now we came in this way or I still would have yet to see an oryx in the wild! Of course there is a much quicker way into Timberon if you just stick to the main road! But what fun would that be?!

Someone emailed us once saying we were a disgrace for setting up plastic deer and taking pictures of them along with the oryx that were from Africa. We sent him a few links regarding the area and received a very nice email in return! He was a native of New Mexico who had no idea what was in his own back yard but was off to see it! We included a few photos of both of these in the additional photos section – awesome!

With power next door and water and phone in the street the property is a fabulous buy for someone wanting to build a cabin or hang out in your RV and watch the deer roam thru your property surround by mountains! Very pretty! Amber :)


Amber's Adventure Around Timberon in July 2016!

Hi! I’m Amber, Char’s daughter, and it’s time you get to know a little bit about me. I started working full time at Smile4u in June of 2013 and took over keeping the office in line while my mom explores. I've taken a few short trips to Elko, Nevada including the Elko County tax sale and I stopped by the Las Animas Ranches in Southern Colorado in August 2015 on my way to a family reunion in Kansas. Recently, my mom has decided to let me take over creating the listings so she can focus on her other goals for Smile4u, so I guess it’s my time to shine! This is my trip to Otero County in July 2016.



We arrived in Alamogordo in the evening the first day and checked into the Magnuson Hotel & Suites. The next morning was the Otero County Tax Sale at 9am. My mom bid on the properties while I watched (little did I know she would force me to do it all by myself 10 days later at the Lincoln County tax sale). One of our biggest competitors was also at the sale and we had lunch with after him at the Jam-ing Hotdogs & More shack in Alamogordo (5/5 Stars for a greasy hot dog!). After lunch we traveled to Timberon together to start our first combined land expedition!


My mom hadn’t been to Timberon since 2006, and by the looks of what I saw as we entered the subdivision I can’t imagine why she never went back after. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Being a Washington native, now in the Arizona desert, the heavily treed scenery of Timberon was a nice change and made me slightly home sick. We entered the subdivision on Sacramento Dr., a nice paved/graveled road. Mom was pointing out all the new businesses that had popped up since she was last there. The Timberon New Village Hardware and General Store had just opened up. Nonnie’s Restaurant also looked new to her, located in the Timberon Lodge near the swimming pool.






We worked our way through Units 10, 8, 3 and 6. We spent some extra time in Unit 8 and I quickly fell in love with the tall Ponderosa Pines and grassy ground. I imagined myself sitting outside on a hammock strung up between the trees, reading a good book in the sun for a few hours.



All the birds were chirping their hellos to us and we even got to meet a few of the local wild turkeys and mule deer.


Even though it was the end of July, I felt the temperature was fairly mild. Having acclimated to Arizona already, I found the temperature in Timberon to be slightly chilly when the breeze picked up. We drove around Timberon until the last of the sun’s light ran out on us. On the way back we debated driving back to Alamogordo, but soon into our drive one of the largest lightning storms I have ever witnessed hit us, so we decided to stay in Cloudcroft about 45 minutes away, which is modeled after a pioneer village. The rooms were cozy with a rustic feel – my mom mentioned how she hadn’t had a shower in a clawfoot tub since her grandmother’s house!



A popular getaway in the Sacramento Mountains, Cloudcroft sits at an elevation of 9,000 feet, making it perfect for a summer getaway in the high mountains as well as a desired skiing destination. In the morning we ate breakfast at Big Daddy’s Diner. I just HAD to try their fried PB&J sandwich, which I would order again in a heartbeat.

Day Two of my journey into Timberon focused on Units 14 and 13. Unit 14 was very quiet but still had some development in it. This would be my personal 2nd favorite Unit in Timberon that we explored. Power at most of the properties and one even adjoined the National Forest!





The second part of the day was spent navigating Unit 13. There aren’t a lot of roads in this unit, however we were able to see a few of the properties. These are great properties for someone who doesn’t want to be found. One of the last properties we stopped at sat atop a hill with a view of the rest of the Subdivision to the West and a great view of the beautiful ridges of the Sacramento Mountains to the East. What a perfect area for someone to go to get away from it all!




Timberon adjoins the Lincoln National Forest which provides for many recreational activities. It also offers amenities such as a 9-hole golf course with seasonal pro shop, a 4,750 foot long private airstrip for small planes, helicopter pad, seasonal swimming pool, fire station, convenience stores, RV Park, and more! There is a $30 Facility and Services Fee to help maintain these amenities.

Timberon is a big forest filled with an abundance of animals roaming, tall pines and junipers and not too many people considering it encompasses about 9,000 acres and home to about 300 people. It adjoins BLM lands, White Sands Desert and State lands. Many use it seasonally or on the weekends to escape to a quiet getaway in the woods.



Timberon sits in the Sacramento Mountains of South-Central New Mexico. The Sacramento Mountains extend for 85 miles and includes towns such as Cloudcroft and Ruidoso, and is also part of the Lincoln National Forest. Coming from El Paso, you don't really notice the elevation change in the mountains until you have reached the Western edge and are able to see the Tularosa Basin and Alamogordo, 4,000 feet below.


This area is home to two observatories, the National Solar Observatory at Sacramento Peak and the Apache Pointe Observatory. We briefly stopped at the Sunspot Astronomy and Visitor Center which is open to the public. There are signs along the Sunspot Highway from Cloudcroft to Timberon, which feature planet names. The closer you get to the observatory, the closer the planet is to the sun.




Its been a while since Smile4u has offered Timberon for sale and it's a treat to own one here again! This would be a great place to relax and unwind in the cool mountains while enjoying the privacy and peace of Timberon! Enjoy! Amber : )
