In the beautiful Wild Horse Mesa subdivision, this 1-acre parcel boasts mature trees, power along the road, lake views of Sanchez Reservoir, and mountain views of the Sangre de Cristos (a sub-range of the Rockies). From the property, it is about a 5-minute drive to the water well at the Wild Horse Mesa Community Center (to fill your cistern) and less than a 10-minute drive to the lake. Wild horses run free on the Mesa and can be seen commonly in this area; in addition to the mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, birds, eagles, black bears, mountain lions, and bighorn sheep also commonly seen here. The Wild Horse Mesa/Melby Ranch community lies at 8,000+ feet elevation and about 25 minutes from the historic town of San Luis. About 1 hour 15 minutes to Taos for shopping, dining, and cultural events. The Mesa spans about 20 square miles of spectacular vistas, both level and hilly with varied eco-regions including sagebrush, pinon, juniper, grasses, and wildflowers. The stargazing is world-class! Cell phone service is not super reliable in the area, internet is satellite. This is the place to escape and enjoy the Colorado nature!
