The River Ranch is a transcendent destination property seductively placed along the rim of the Rio Chama overlooking unparalleled and vast Northern New Mexico views. Situated on 1,000 acres (two separately deeded 500 acre tracts) in the quiet ranching village of Youngsville, Abiquiu’s neighbor to the west, this pristine and private property borders Carson National Forest/Chama River Canyon Wilderness area with access to the river below which flows to the nearby Abiquiu Reservoir Lake. Built by Santa Fe’s respected builder John Wolf, the steel and concrete home and casitas are sited to take advantage of the pink and red hills and valley of the Piedra Lumbre land grant which was memorialized by internationally acclaimed artist Georgia O’Keefe. Each structure is a stand-alone piece of artwork, capturing the essence of the environment through light and form, while interweaving the comforts of a high-end luxury retreat. Formal living/dining and communal spaces lead one via landscaped stone pathways to private guest casitas with their own private access. A large soaking pool/hot tub rests just below the home view decks, which envelop one in the richness of ancestral rock and Puebloan history. The property is gated with a private well in place. An additional adjacent 500 acre parcel of vacant land is also available for sale with its own access to the National Wilderness also bordering the Rio Chama.
