RIO AZUL RANCHO

ABIQUIU, NEW MEXICO, USA

$3,500,000

Intrigued by the editor of "Nature" Magazine's statement that the Piedra Lumbre Land Grant was "The Best Place in the World" Georgia O'Keeffe wound up splitting her time between New York and the area where the Rio Azul Ranch is located, to find new inspiration for her art. With the exception of Lake Abiquiu, the Piedra Lumbre Land Grant looks much as it did thousands of years ago. The reflections of the fire red cliffs upon the Rio Chama at sunset and the expansive views are magnificent! This ranch has a private, gated and well-maintained road that goes through thousands of acres of private and protected (500-acre minimum sized ranches) and leads to this extraordinary end piece. A private well, boat launch, the Rio Chama, the old growth cottonwood lined Rio Puerco, and vast forever views overlooking Ghost Ranch and the Chama River Valley Wilderness, which consists of thousands of acres of protected wilderness. Simply the Best!
