RIO HONDO FOOTHILLS
150 ACRES - $590,000
Rio Hondo Foothills is a one-of-a-kind property that is just downhill from Hondo Canyon and Taos Ski Valley. At a size of 150 acres, this property has everything a landowner could want: valleys, cliffs, impressive ponderosa pine forests, and plenty of buildable space. There aren’t many properties of this size and caliber in the Taos area on the market today. Live near Taos, Rio Grande Gorge, Taos Ski Valley, Taos Mountains and Wheeler Peak (highest point in New Mexico), and the Wheeler Peak Wilderness Area. Discover northern New Mexico at its best, the Rio Hondo Foothills property is a unique opportunity for buyers that understand the value of land in one of the most desirable areas of New Mexico.
Rio Hondo Foothills is within 3 miles of the Wheeler Peak Wilderness which has a plethora of native New Mexico wildlife. It is estimated that 80% of all New Mexico animals require water at one point in their life cycle. With Rio Hondo flowing near the property, there is plenty of wildlife to see.
Rio Hondo Foothills is conveniently located just far enough from Taos that you have a feeling of being secluded in the Taos Mountains, but within 20 minutes you can be at the Taos Plaza with shopping, restaurants, art museums, and entertainment. The property is also close to the Carson National Forest and Wheeler Peak Wilderness for excellent hiking; Taos Ski Valley; Rio Grande Gorge for rafting adventures; and the Enchanted Circle for a weekend driving tour.
