Surround yourself with the unmatched beauty of Northern New Mexico on this incredible 3+ acre property!
These 5 buildable lots are being sold together as a group. Located in Tierra Amarilla, Rio Arriba County, just 20 minutes south of Chama, NM, you’ll find the property in the Tzama Subdivision. On record as Tzama Block 10, Lots 1, 3, 4, 23 and 24, these lots create a beautiful, spacious parcel that meets the counties minimum acreage for building and keeping farm animals/livestock. Keep all five and build your dream home, homestead, or ranchette. Or keep one as your seasonal camp and sell the others for a profit. Just a head’s up, an old, slightly beat up, 26′ camper is parked on lot 1 that currently serves as lockable storage. A large flat area has been cleared for parking an RV or travel trailer so you can enjoy long or short-term camping with ease.
Sitting on a low hillside, these lots provide amazing sunset views, as well as views of the San Juans to the north, Brazos Cliffs to the northeast, and Chama Valley to the west. There is also exceptional southern exposure for solar power and/or passive solar building design. The lots offer a lovely combination of mature pine trees, scrub oak, mature juniper, and sagebrush, with multiple potential building sites on each of the five lots.
This area abounds with wildlife, appealing to nature lovers, hunters, explorers, fishermen, and just anyone who wants to get out see the natural landscapes. Each spring there is a “nursery” herd of elk (cows with their spring calves) that hang out in and around the property. You can also find elk, mule deer, coyote, rabbits, turkeys, bears, owls, eagles, herons, and cranes that pass through regularly all year long.
Whether your passion is hunting, fishing, mountain biking, ATVs/dirt bikes, horse riding, hiking, cross country skiing, or just quietly puttering around the yard and garden, this spot will satisfy your needs and whims. Explore and use the surrounding 300 acres of unimproved subdivision land as your own private backyard. Or weave your way into the heart of the Carson National State Forest using the dirt roads right from the property.
Tierra Amarilla is the county seat of Rio Arriba County, but is very rural. These lots are close enough to the main road that access to electricity would be possible and reasonably convenient, or you could simply stay off-grid if you prefer. There is currently no water, no septic, no electricity, and no buildings on any of the lots—this is unimproved, completely undeveloped land.
