Escape the city just far enough to experience swaths of stars and unobstructed sunsets. Nestled high in the hills within the Albuquerque Metropolitan Area, this 11.57 Acres property in Manzano Morning Subdivision brilliantly displays New Mexico's rugged natural beauty and vistas fit for a painting. Miles of golden grasslands give way to unspoiled views of the Manzano Mountains rolling across the backdrop.
Peaceful. Quiet. Private. Yet still less than an hour from Albuquerque. This spacious highland subdivision offers a breathtaking retreat with all of the modern conveniences and amenities approximately 45 minutes away from the city. Electricity, Telephone and Internet lines are already in place with maintained gravel roads providing easy access throughout the subdivision. The subdivision entrance opens to State Highway 337, which leads to the town of Estancia, about 21 minutes away via State Highway 55.
You can find the essentials with a quick trip into Estancia, which has both Family Dollar and Dollar General stores, a Speedway gas station and convenient store, Wells Fargo bank, public schools and parks, local medical center, municipal airport, hardware and auto stores, and a few must-try local restaurants.
But if you're looking for a day of shopping, great entertainment, or a night out, head over to Albuquerque. Take a tour through Old Town Albuquerque, try mouthwatering New Mexico cuisine-featuring their famous hatch green chiles-and visit the city's five fascinating museums. Then, end with a sunset ride on the Sandia Peak Tramway. Albuquerque features a vibrant, rich history that you can experience through year-round events.
More About the Subdivision & Surrounding Wildlife Area
Aptly named, the Manzano Morning Subdivision displays a diverse mix of evergreen and deciduous trees that provide splashes of color and year-round protection from the elements. The variety of colorful underbrush such as yucca, cacti, sagebrush, and native grasses sustain deer and other native wildlife. You'll see their trails-and their tails-winding across the landscape.
Additionally, the coveted subdivision borders the Cibola National Forest, which offers added privacy and wildlife protection. This expansive and biodiverse region featuring rippling grasslands and craggy mountains is home to many wild game species, including white-tail deer, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, elk, mountain lion, and turkey.
The Manzano region of Cibola National Forest also fosters a critical wildlife mission: the Manzano Mountains Raptor Migration Project. The end of August to the beginning of November marks the migration season for raptors such as the sharp-shinned hawk, Cooper's hawk, red-tailed hawk, and turkey vulture, which keep watch for small prey from the treetops.
New Mexico is known for its outdoor splendor. Nature enthusiasts will find endless opportunities in every season-from thrilling fishing adventures and kayak excursions to skiing, hiking, bird and wildlife watching, camping, and more. Plus, big game hunters can put in for BLM hunting draws or try their luck with guided exotic oryx and ibex hunts-New Mexico is the only state with free-range exotics.
When you aren't watching the timid white-tails, soaring hawks, or brilliant sunsets from your private escape, you can head off on more New Mexico adventures-all under 3 hours away. You'll find unique opportunities for shopping, entertainment, exploration, outdoor adventures, and travel options.
