Just a few miles south of the famed and historic Santa Fe Plaza lies a notable geographic basin that was a cradle of civilization several hundreds of years ago. The Galisteo Basin has a rich history as a trade center due to it's location between the upper Rio Grande Valley and the eastern plains. During the 14th and 15th centuries several groups of Pueblo native Americans inhabited the area until suddenly leaving the area in 1680. This was likely the result of the persistent efforts by the Spanish to retake Santa Fe and the area. The basin is home to numerous significant archeological sites, some discovered and others not. Today the Galisteo River still runs into the basin draining the nearby Sangre de Cristo mountain range. On the edge of the Galisteo basin is a remarkable 648 acre undeveloped property that enjoys highway frontage for year-round access, dark skies at night, proximity to Santa Fe, and a water well already in place. Tranquila Ranch is enjoys the three most important aspects of real estate, Location-near Santa Fe, Location-highway access, Location-adjacent to the 10,000 acre Galisteo Preserve. Tranquila has the potential to be a large private ranch, a development play, or an opportunity to land bank a large acreage at a low carrying cost in a highly desirable market. Notably the ranch borders the Galisteo Basin Preserve which offers 10,000 acres of hiking, biking, riding and exploring to the public. The views are stunning and the skies at night are dark and filled with millions of stars. Enjoy world class New Mexican cusine in downtown Santa Fe, attend the Santa Fe Opera and then retreat to the tranquility of Tranquila Ranch and your dream home.
