RANCHO PALIZADA is an exquisite example of what thoughtful stewardship and talented workmanship can create. Located northwest of Abiquiu, known for its colorful and spectacular landscape, this 500 acre ranch offers the privilege of true privacy & varied pristine topography. It shares a border with the Chama Wilderness area, providing your own gate into 50,000 acres of spectacular protected public lands. The main house is situated so that views sweep from Prieta Mesa toward Ghost Ranch and on to the Sangre de Cristo mountains. Pedernal (the sacred mountain made famous by Georgia O'Keeffe) is rising in all its glory to complete the picture. This graceful Adobe home, guest house, caretakers quarters, and barn with arena were built to fit naturally into the landscape. The main house is exquisite, elegant and light filled. It consists of an open grand room with a cook's kitchen, dining and living area filled with natural light and warm earth tones. A private spacious master wing includes bedroom/seating area, bathroom, closet, and private outdoor shower and hot tub. The guest wing is well done with 2 bedrooms/bathrooms, and office & library. The guest house is as thoughtfully done as the main house, with 1 bedroom/bath, kitchen, and living room. A custom 4 stall barn with arena , large equipment shed, and caretakers cottage complete the structures. All were thoughtfully designed and well crafted. 1 hour and 40 min. to SF.
