Property Summary

The literal English translation of the Spanish word estancia is stay. That couldn’t be more appropriate, because that’s exactly what you’ll want to do when you get to your acre of bliss in the desert terrain. Estancia is a quiet desert community in the heart of New Mexico. This property in Torrance County is located just west of HWY 41 and North of the town of McIntosh in the El Rancho Grande subdivision.

At just under an hour’s drive to Albuquerque, the surrounding area has plenty to offer. Enjoy easy access to all the entertainment, sporting events, nightlife, events and culture that Albuquerque and Santa Fe have to offer while still giving you a rural, quiet, and affordable place to call your own. The landscape of Torrance County, NM is primarily gently-rolling grassland ranging from 6000 to 6200 feet in elevation. The Manzano Mountains rise to 10,098 feet on the western edge of the county and provide beautiful views and plenty of nature activities.

The area offers hunting, fishing, hiking, and pretty much any outdoor activities you could desire. You can hike through the Manzano Wilderness area and revel in the highest part of the Manzano Mountains and other notable geographic features like a series of playas and seasonal lakes centering on Laguna del Perro southeast of Estancia.While you can’t hunt on your land (it’s a residential community) there are plenty of places for the avid hunter in the area. Look for bighorn sheep in the Peloncillo Mountains or Montezuma quail in the open woodlands. Just be sure to check what licenses you may need for each season, and where you can hunt for what.

You have options when it comes to what to build or not on your lot. Since it’s a residential neighborhood, site built, manufactured or mobile homes are all allowed. You can camp with restrictions and RV’s are allowed for up to 3 months with a permit from the planning and zoning department. Whatever you decide, you’ll wake up to breathtaking views every morning and end the days with gorgeous sunsets each night.

Property can be accessed via a dirt road on the Northern portion of the lot, not far from the iconic Route 66. Like they say, get your kicks on route 66. Then head right over to your new home in Estancia in Torrance County. Hurry, this area is highly sought after and this perfect one acre lot won’t last long!
