Have you ever craved an escape so intensely that fleeing to another planet or epoch seemed appropriate? Have you desired silence so immersive that it could drown your thoughts? Does your thirst for the perfect panorama leave your eyes parched? The history of the 500 acre Ranch includes dinosaur migration from the Mesozoic Era. Nearby, The Ghost Ranch houses the world’s only complete Coelophysis from the sandstone formations of the Triassic Era that blanket the region in unique, mystical geology. It is the same physiography that drew Georgia O’keeffe to the area and inspired countless, iconic works. The tall, vibrant red, Spanish skirt cliff on the property leads to the mesa, known as Cuesta Navajo, and is home to a ceremonial Kiva from this period. The specific use of this Kiva remains a mystery, however, the view and absolute silence from this location conjures thoughts of vital importance and utility to the ancient residents. Sights of Cerro Pedernal, the Rio Puerco, The Ghost Ranch, and Abiquiu Lake realize the geographical significance. An existing well and power on the property provides modernity to an otherwise untouched, timeless piece of New Mexico. Several favorable building envelopes command distinctive, and creative architecture that allows further immersion into the landscape and equine facilities will be embraced. Flowing red sandstone formations with looming hoodoo spires will have you forgetting to look down and take in the wildlife tracks as many of these local inhabitants make their way into Red Valley from the adjacent Rio Chama Wilderness Area and Santa Fe National Forest, over 50,000 acres. From warm sunrises to the dynamic cloud formations of the afternoon, surreal evening sunsets and into the night the sights are unmatched. Few get to bathe in the sea of stars and expanse of the night sky provided by a lack of light pollution. This special place is waiting for the next explorer, custodian, and dream; transport yourself to Red Valley Ranch.
