Apache Mesa Ranch in New Mexico
Abiquiu Vicinity, NM, USA
Stunning and magnificent.
Two words that immediately come to mind, but do not begin to describe the drama and expanse of Apache Mesa Ranch. This is one of the most unique ranch properties available in New Mexico and unlike anything being offered in the majestic southwest. Just outside of Abiquiu, New Mexico and directly west of the historic Ghost Ranch, the location is unmatched for views, tranquility and privacy. The dramatic property borders National Wilderness and is surrounded by the red rock, skyscapes, fabulous light and vivid terrain that inspired Georgia O’Keefe, as well as countless artists and writers.
The Adobe hacienda includes interior finishes of old-growth oak and pine floors, reclaimed Italian ceiling and floor tiles, antique Mexican doors, custom hand-made cabinetry, antique ceiling beams, mud plaster walls and stone gathered from the property. It is a modern masterpiece with the look and feel of haciendas of old. Architectural elements such as custom plaster, fireplaces and beamed ceilings grace the various outbuildings, comprised of a carriage house, guest house, caretakers casita and several studio buildings. Every structure has been carefully placed to account for its own sense of space.
Outdoor living begins when you enter the courtyard through massive Mexican zaguan gates. Outdoor features include a dazzlingly brilliant pool and protected outdoor kitchen, both overlooking miles of breathtaking views. Thousands of acres of protected National Wilderness borders the ranch, augmenting the already-plentiful opportunities for exploring the majestic rock sculpture gardens and horseback riding. The endless landscapes are classically textured with striking rock outcroppings, fragrant sage and native pinon trees.
The 1,060 acre Apache Mesa Ranch, with the magnificent backdrop of ever-changing light and sky, includes 500 acres of rustic and iconic land known as the Red Valley. In the vicinity of the historic Mesa Prieta, it encompasses terrain including Sedona-like dramatic stone and earth formations. Once a center of Native religious and ceremonial culture, the site is known for its archaeological features and petroglyphs. It is an unsurpassed private wonderland of natural beauty and drama.
