RIO HONDO FOOTHILLS
300 ACRES - $1,800,000
Rio Hondo Foothills is a one-of-a-kind property that features over a quarter mile of Rio Hondo just downstream from Hondo Canyon and Taos Ski Valley. At a size of 300 acres, this property has everything a landowner could want: perennial stream, ditches, valleys, cliffs, impressive ponderosa pine forests, and plenty of buildable space whether up on top or down by the river. 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. Property also includes four elk tags (2 antlerless, 2 either sex). Discover northern New Mexico at its best, the Rio Hondo Foothills property is a unique opportunity for buyers that understand the value of having waterfront and forested lands 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 through the property, there is plenty of wildlife to see along the banks of the perennial river.
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.
