$1,349,000   •   87.5 Acres

Come and get your OTC deer AND elk tags in Unit 34! Nestled on +/- 87.5 acres of well-maintained land, the Old Adobe Ranch punches well above its weight class for hunting opportunities. With over 1900ft of frontage along the meandering, year-round waters of Tularosa Creek and an 18 foot-deep, approximately 0.35 acre pond. The Old Adobe Ranch awaits its next owner to love and enjoy it for years to come. LandIf you are looking for your own piece of heaven that offers fishing, hunting and multiple potential homesites this is it. Year-round natural water in this part of New Mexico is in short supply, and this property not only offers a large swath of Tularosa Creek, but also water rights and a beautiful river-fed pond on +/- 10.5 acres of pristine riparian habitat that attracts several species of waterfowl and can be fully stocked with whatever fish you desire. A +/-2 .5 acre irrigated field has been used as a food plot for deer and elk and attracts large amounts of game.  The large groves of mature cottonwoods along the river give way to approximately 74.5 acres of rolling pinion and juniper covered hills as you transition to the upper portion of the ranch. The current owner has invested considerable effort into thinning this upper area to enhance natural grass growth and better retain game.  Old Adobe Ranch is bordered on the west by a land-locked parcel of BLM land, so the ranch feels much larger than its 87.5 acres.  There is a road system carved throughout the upper property for a planned subdivision that was subsequently sidelined in the early 1970s. The property has prior approval for five different parcels, it would make a great land site to build or have multiple home sites. Plenty of other outdoor adventure awaits the new owner — there is even an old turquoise mine to see caves and crystals. Your kids and grandkids will love the endless play areas and fort building spots. The Bent Dome, part of a major Paleozoic uplift, is almost entirely located on the ranch, resulting in a host of unique rock formations on the property, and the Sacramento Mountains tower to the south. Come sit on the rock bench at the pond, feed the ducks, and feel miles away from civilization! RecreationLocated in NM Game Management Unit 34 within a half mile of the boundary of the Mescalero Apache Reservation, world famous for its outstanding elk hunting, the Old Adobe Ranch occupies a prime travel location for game in search of the water in Tularosa Creek, a major water source in the region. GMU 34 is the state’s southernmost premium elk hunting unit, with a reputation for producing trophy-class mature bulls and an elk density that is among the highest inthe state. GMU 34 is also known to produce the occasional trophy class mule deer, as well as barbary sheep and oryx. The ranch is able to obtain over-the-counter private land tags for elk, mule deer, black bear, Merriam turkey and mountain lions. Water/Mineral Rights & Natural ResourcesWith +/- 2.5 acres of water rights that carry 2100 gallons per minute and a 15,500 sqft pond dug approximately 18 feet deep with a commercial liner that can hold approximately 1,000,000 gallons of water with an irrigation system set up for easy operations, Old Adobe Ranch is already set up to transform your property into the oasis of your dreams!
