1.0 acre commercial property for sale in Carrizozo, New Mexico with great exposure to Highway 380! It's about 1.25 miles SE of town with a paved road to the lot and water and power already in the street! Great investment on the busy highway between Ruidoso and Capitan in Lincoln County! The documents recorded at the county indicated this commercial lot originally sold for $49,000 in the 2000's!

All of the photos were taken of the property and it's surrounding views in August 2016! As you can see in the maps it adjoins Highway 380 along it's south and the access to the property is a paved road just 3 lots off the highway sitting in the culdesac! Across the street is a beautiful home/business which I believe was the developers office that now looks empty as seen in image #104. The image numbers are at the top of the photos.

Across the highway to the south is the Valle del Sol Golf Course which is not open at this time. A few lots to the NW is a park area with a covered gazebo that looks like would be a nice spot for people to stop and enjoy the sweeping view across the valley!

For the amount of traffic that flows thru the busy crossroad intersections at Hwy 380 & 54 there isn't much commercial businesses along it. You can see the cars along the highway in image #30. We stayed for a few nights as Carrizozo is the county seat and we were hard pressed to find a decent restaurant.

I discovered the famous fried burritos at Allsup's, the gas station at the busy intersection! I'm not one to eat junk food out of gas stations but without a lot of choices that night I was pleasantly surprised. And since then every time I've seen an Allsup's I've said STOP I NEED A BURRITO! They started in Ruidoso in the 50's and introduced their burritos in the 70's! But to find a coffee shop and donut in the morning we had to venture to the side streets in the small town and I was thinking wow this town sure could use some more restaurants!

The property is flat with a bit of scattered native plants. As you can see in the photos there are a few beautiful homes scattered in the distance but for the most part this place remains undeveloped with a few antelope grazing as seen in images #201 & 202.

It sits just beyond the edge of town and its a cute view of the town from here. There were pretty views of the Carrizozo Mountains to the NW with sheets of rain coming down as a summer thunderstorm rolled in across the valley - what a pretty place to watch a storm. I loved the wide open views that were green with lots of grass. We spotted antelope out grazing here. Carrizozo sits at the northern tip of the Tularosa basin just NW of the Sacramento Mountains and west of the Capitan Mountains so there are some great mountain views on the valley floor!

So what exactly went on here is what I wondered after picking up this little jewel at the foreclosure sale and seeing some pretty big sales amount on recorded documents at the county for this subdivision not too long ago. The recording date on the CCR's is only 2008. While researching online I found a letter from the developer dated August 27, 2008 saying that the "prices for commercial properties ranged from $60,000 to $95,000 per acre".

It took a bit of research to figure out just what government agency oversee this property as the original developer that was in charge of the CCR's apparently no longer exists. They subdivided it and for a while ran the golf course. In the end it all went to the city who doesn't have the money to run the golf course or at least that's what I've gotten from the conversations I've had with county and city employees. So as of now this little gem sits across the street from a closed golf course.

Since the property is within the Carrizozo city limits they are the ones in charge of the zoning for it. They indicated that the CCR's were still in effect. However if you wanted to apply for a zoning variance to build a residence home or manufactured home you would now need to go thru the city. They are also the ones in charge of the water system out here and you would need to contact city hall for further information to connect. They indicated it was a $1130 connection fee which is significantly cheaper than drilling a well!

I sure think this has some great potential for an investor seeking commercial property! Enjoy! Char the Explorer : )

Lincoln County Area Photos of Carrizozo, White Oaks, Capitan, Ruidoso and Alto!

Welcome to Lincoln County, New Mexico, the ultimate playground in the southwest from Sierra Blanca aka the White Mountains at 11,981 feet to the beautiful open valleys of Carrizozo at 5429 feet. Wow was my head spinning the first time I visited here in 2016!

A video of our trip around Lincoln County!

Carrizozo sits in the shadows of the Sacramento Mountain Range at the northern edge of the Tularosa Basin. It’s a quiet little town and the county seat about 45 minutes NW of Ruidoso. About 15 minutes NE is the ghost mining town of White Oaks, famous for the No Scum Allowed Saloon. We headed up there our first night to see if they truly had some of the coldest beer in Lincoln County to find them closed! But it’s a cute little town and I enjoyed the historical buildings over 100 years old!

Since we didn’t find any cold beer we decided to visit the Lincoln County Fair in Capitan! 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! Hot dog! I also got several photos of a mean goat giving several good head butts to a baby goat. It’s funny now looking at the photos but it wasn’t so funny at the moment! I learned that there really is a duck with a pom pom hairdo called a crested duck! I thought someone had somehow done that to them!

The Lincoln Count Fair in Capitan!

Capitan is also 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!

In 1950 a fire destroyed 17,000 of forest and grasslands. A fire crew found the frightened bear cub clinging for life to the side of a burnt pine tree. He was so badly burnt they named him “Smokey Bear”. He was flown to Sante Fe and upon recovery was sent to a zoo in Washington DC. In 1962 NM adopted the Black Bear as the State Animal and sent him a bear companion, Goldie. Upon his death in 1976 he returned to his home in the Capitan Mountains.

The mountain village of Ruidoso is a thriving scene people flock to all four seasons! It’s 100 miles to the closest interstate and 2 hours from the nearest commercial airport yet people come here year round for winter skiing at Ski Apache, summer hiking and fishing, golf courses, art galleries, restaurants, and to relax with to the smell of pine trees and streams winding their way thru the forest. It is surrounded by the Lincoln National Forest and there is a network of hiking trails! We spotted deer and elk while driving around town and read that black bear, wild horses and the rare mountain lion also call this home!

It’s also home of the Ruidoso Downs Race Track, a tradition since the 1940’s. It’s famous for the showcase All American Futurity, the world’s richest two year old race which was a $3 million purse in 2015! The Labor Day event drew a record of 25,000 fans which is more than live in Lincoln County!

Billy the Kid Scenic Byway visitors center sits next door to the Hubbard Museum of the American West. I didn’t get a chance to view the museum but the beautiful monuments of horses outside the museum was well worth the drive by! Billy, born Henry McCarty, was an American Old West gunfighter who joined the Regulators and participated in the Lincoln County War. The Kid allegedly shot and killed two deputies, but was never indicted for the murders.
