    About this Property

    Nestled in the heart of the enchanting Pecos Valley, La Cueva Ranch offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for a unique lifestyle within a historic compound surrounded by unparalleled natural beauty. The property includes 10 lots spanning 50 acres adjacent to the National Forest and nearly 1,000 feet of magical Pecos River frontage. Three distinctive residences overlook a freshwater pond and picturesque grassy knoll. The bisecting river is teeming with trout and the surrounding forest is connected with private walking trails leading to breathtaking vistas of the Pecos River Valley. The 3 bedroom/3 bathroom main house was designed by John Gaw Meem and constructed in 1926. The first guest casita is an enchanting historic adobe with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The modern second casita built in 2011 includes two bedrooms and one bathroom. Additional amenities on the property include a studio, a greenhouse, a swimming pool, and a storage barn with workshops. A solar hot water and photovoltaic array service the property with sustainable energy. La Cueva Ranch is not merely a property; it is an unparalleled opportunity to immerse oneself in a quintessential New Mexican experience. It is not only a home, but also a piece of history, a nature preserve and a very remarkable private sanctuary.
