This is the majestic get-away that you and your family have been dreaming of finding. And it is an exquisite find, in the countryside north of Santa Fe. Located roughly 70 miles from downtown Santa Fe, this incredibly private estate enjoys views that are breathtaking in every direction that include dramatic mesas, unique geological formations, yellow cliffs, and the majestic Cerro Pedernal. This ranch sits amid the inspiring peaks and valley of the mystic lands that inspired Georgia O’Keeffe, one of America’s most stirring artists. The estate – Apache Mesa Ranch—is surrounded by 560 acres of rolling grasslands, rugged rock outcroppings, and miles of pinon, ponderosa, and juniper—the trees and terrain of this region giving the feeling of a southwest zen garden. The estate borders the Chama River Canyon Wilderness which is 53,000 acres inside Santa Fe National Forest as well as the famous Ghost Ranch, once the home of artist Georgia O’Keeffe. The estate includes the main hacienda fashioned after traditional Mexican hacienda with a pool, guest house, carriage house, bunkhouse, and studio all constructed of adobe. A caretaker’s quarters give workers a place to live while keeping up with the grounds and horses. The full-size dressage arena from Premier Equestrian LLC with a Prostride rubber footing and ArenaAid sand stabilizer gives the perfect footing to fine-tune your horsemanship. Abiquiu Lake and the town of Abiquiu are nearby for recreation or necessities.

The main residence recalls a traditional hacienda with 4,640 square feet of living spaces and private quarters centered around an internal courtyard lush with grass and aspens. Painstakingly selected and sourced Western, Mexican, Southwestern, and European details featuring organic tones and a variety of intriguing textures can be found throughout. Adobe walls, carved and adzed doors, beadboard, corrugated tin, decorative ironwork, hand-hewn lumber, hand-chiseled stone, adobe walls, custom plaster, kiva fireplaces, and artistic ceilings incorporating vigas, latillas, and corbels create an ambience that blends the unique sensibilities of Southwest with the self-assured refinement of the Old World. Highlights include a grand sala; a spacious, well-outfitted kitchen; a formal dining room; a study; a media room with an impressive array of built-ins; and master and guest quarters separated for privacy. The land immediately surrounding the home is enclosed in wood fencing and stacked stone walls, all of which embrace a refreshing swimming pool and spa, a lush lawn, a sun-soaked terrace, and a shady wraparound portal with an outdoor kitchen.
