Situated in the heart of south-central New Mexico, is this fabulous one-of-a-kind property with 42+ acres of great building sites and wonderful views. This recreational property boasts the soothing sounds of a 20 foot waterfall, a year-round spring-fed Tularosa River, views of towering rock formations, and on the horizon the spectacular twinkle of the White Sands National Monument.
The history of the Rio Tularosa is marked by battles - first with the Apaches at Cerro Redondo (Round Mountain) and then with Texan farmers who diverted the river for their own use. Across the river, the historic Comanchero Trail traverses the property. An old rock structure that may have been a way station is located on the trail.
Located on Hwy 70 at mile marker 234 between Tularosa and Ruidoso, this property offers easy access on and off Hwy 70. And for the adventurous, this property is about 30 minutes from the mountain resort communities of Ruidoso and Cloudcroft where not only will you find skiing and horse racing, but a spectacular Casino/Resort - the Inn of the Mountain Gods with its world-renowned 18 hole golf course.
Nearby Lincoln National Forest offers more that 1 million acres of public land for riding, hiking, hunting and exploring. Plus there are thousands of acres of accessible public land managed by the Federal Bureau of Land Management close to this property.
Besides its extensive tourist attractions and facilities, Ruidoso is also home to the Lincoln County Medical Center, an acute-care 25-bed hospital, and Sierra Blanca Regional Airport (SRR/RUI), a jet-capable general aviation airport.
