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 by Alamogordo and Cloudcroft. It’s centrally located between Albuquerque and El Paso and Lubbock, Texas in Otero County. The property sits about 1 mile from the Lincoln National Forest! A getaway spot in the cool pines 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 along the N that was a bit overgrown from lack of use but still an easy drive. The adjoining neighbor to the W, lot #49, was having a septic tank installed. There is power to their lot so power is next door! You will need to contact the local power company for the cost of bringing it to the property.

There is water in the street which is called standby water. You will need to contact Timberon Water for the cost to connect. The annual fee for standby water is $61.15 per year. Not all of the lots in Timberon have water already in the streets and this will save you the cost of drilling a well!

She’s a pretty lot made up of a gentle rolling hill from the N down to the S. 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 of the Sacramento Mountains! There’s quite a variety of shrubs, prickly pear, and grass in the open meadows.

My boyfriend Buddy helped explore the lot!

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. 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.

Timberon is 9000 acres of forest with tall pines and junipers and there's an abundance of deer, elk, and turkeys roaming. It's surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest. It's home to about 300 people but most owners use it seasonally to escape to the cool summertime temperatures. It's a quiet getaway in the woods with four seasons. The winters are usually mild but I have been up here during the snow as well.

We spotted a deer as we pulled up to the property!

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!

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.

We spent a few days exploring Timberon in July 2016 and included a link to Amber's blog about the different units and all the wildlife we spotted! We also had a fun night in an old hotel in Cloudcroft and checked out the town in the morning.

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! Char the Explorer : )

Otero County Area and Timberon Subdivision Photos

All of these photos were taken on our journeys to Otero County and the Timberon.

Timberon is nestled high in the Sacramento Mountains 32 miles S of Cloudcroft, 1.5 hours SE of Alamogordo, and 100 miles N of El Paso, Texas. It is surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest, BLM lands, White Sands Desert and State lands.

The Sacramento Mountains are a year round play ground for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, hunting, camping, skiing and snowmobiling.

One of my favorite photos I've taken in my life was the oryx I spotted on my way to Timberon for my first time. We took the wrong way up the mountain and came in from the S of Timberon which winds through the military range which is where the oryx live. There's signs posted along the way warning you not to leave the road because unexploded devices may exist! At times we lost the road as it took us thru dry river beds - sort of a scary drive but adventurous.

93 African oryx were introduced here in 1969 and they’ve grown to about 2000 today. They weigh on average up to 450 pounds and stand 47 inches tall at the shoulder. Their horns average 34 inches long! Their distinctive black and white markings enable them to hide among desert shrubs. That was one of the best wrong ways I ever took!

At 7000 feet, it is a big forest filled with an abundance of deer, elk and turkeys roaming, tall pines and junipers and cool temperatures during the hot summer months. Some 350 people call this 9000 acres home and there is mail delivery here. It remains largely undeveloped with most using their property during the summer time for recreation.

It offers a nine hole golf course, a runway to accommodate small airplanes, fishing lakes, a swimming pool, restaurants, grocery store and a lodge.

A bit of interesting history about Timberon: It was originally purchased by Judge Paul Moss in 1933 from the State of New Mexico. Judge Moss was interested in using the land for agriculture and entertainment of guests for hunting with the abundance of wildlife. His son, William, married Jane Withers, a former child star known for her role in Bright Eyes. Jane and William stayed in Timberon frequently and brought many other Hollywood stars with them to enjoy the secluded beauty of their private forest.

In 2016 Amber visited Timberon for her first time and spent two days exploring the area and different units. We met up with our biggest competitor, Kent from 1881, and they worked together finding the properties while I sat in the back seat with my boyfriend Buddy! I sure enjoyed someone else doing all the work for once and she sure enjoyed exploring Timberon!

We spent the night in Cloudcroft at the Cloudcroft Hotel which is modeled after a pioneer village as much of the town is - fun! This is a popular tourist town high in the mountains at 9,000 feet, making it perfect for a cool summer getaway and ski destination in the winter.

In the morning we checked out Big Daddy's Diner where she gave their fried PB&J sandwich 2 thumbs up! Click Here to read her blog about the different units in Timberon and some of the animals we spotted!

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! I stop every time and take photos!

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.

Lincoln County adjoins Otero County to the N. The Sacramento Mountains extend for 85 miles into both of these counties and is the home of Timberon, Cloudcroft, Ruidoso, Carrizozo, Capitan, and is also part of the Lincoln National Forest.

The forest consists of three ranger districts: Sacramento, Smokey Bear and Guadalupe. There are three major mountain ranges: Sacramento, Guadalupe and Capitan that cover 1,103,441 acres in parts of four counties in SE New Mexico. Elevations range from 4,000 to 11,500 feet and pass through five different life zones from Chihuahuan desert to sub-alpine forest.

A video of our trip around Lincoln County!

We spent some time exploring the Lincoln Forest in 2016 and visited Capitan, home of Smokey Bear. I've been a huge fan of his since I started traveling across the western USA, frequently stopping to take my picture with him when I see his fire danger signs! Oh I was thrilled when I finally got a chance to stop into the museum. As I walked in I declared "my life is now complete" and the gal behind the counter laughed and said I definitely wasn't the first one to come thru those doors and say that! So a quick picture with my hero!

Capitan is also home of the Lincoln County Fair! That sure was a fun time and my first pig show I must admit! I took so many photos of it that I made an entire video of just the fair! It was a small friendly fair and I’m sure I stuck out like a sore thumb, especially after my comment about the “sparkly pig”. The gal who was getting ready to go into the arena with her pig looked at me and said no that’s just the pig!

Wow was that some serious pig driving as I watched two women keep their pig in the judges view as best as possible! Well turns out he was a sparkly pig as they took away the blue ribbon!

The Lincoln Count Fair in Capitan!
