Upper Montane Dream Upper Montane Dream is a +/- 60-acre inholding nestled into the +/- 760,000 acres of the Carson National Forest. Accessed via 4 miles on a National Forest maintained road from Highway 64 Tres Piedres, which is known as one of the most beautiful drives in North America and is about an hour from Taos and 2 hours from Santa Fe. This off-grid paradise has no rivals and the history is both colorful and historic. The miners found it first, staking out three (3) 20-acre continuous parcels, totaling 60 acres. Many ounces of gold are documented coming from this claim. The Seller is conveying 50% of minerals. Somehow the National Forest Service was never able to acquire this gorgeous private pocket of paradise with thousands of acres of national forest protecting it on all sides. Fourteen years ago, the current owner found and fell in love with the Upper Montane. This was after a 10-year search! Sparing no expense, it was meticulously surveyed, an 8-10 GPM well was drilled & permitted, an acre and a half spring-fed pond was built and permitted, including a middle island, so the mallards, teal and honkers could nest their young undisturbed The elk, mule deer and bear water there daily and its ground zero for the bull elk in the rut. The property even qualifies for an E-plus landowner elk tag and has historically drawn a tag almost every year. Remnants of an old miners cabin remind us of stories gone by. One of the most unique treasures of the Upper Montane are the wild mountain mustangs of the Carson National Forest that run those beautiful mountains, similar to the Brombies from Man from Snowey River. Stories say they escaped from the original miners. The current owner felt it was so beautiful that more than one owner may possibly enjoy the Upper Montane so he spent thousands of dollars legally subdividing it into six (6) 10-acre parcels, but he loved it too much to split it up so it remains in its entirety of +/- 60-acres. Family retreat, four-season recreational paradise, guest or RV, camp, ATV, Outfitters Base Camp, the options are endless, the opportunity is not... There are several breathtaking building sites overlooking the lake that are ready for your cabin or RV spot. With almost a million dollars invested, life circumstances call for the seller to let it go. These National Forest wrapped private inholdings are a rare treat, so call or email Greg Liddle for more information or a qualified showing. Co brokers welcome.
