LAND / TERRAIN:

The landscape features a variety of native grasses and a mix of juniper, elm, live oak, and mesquite trees scattered throughout. The central portion, approximately 47% of the land, is a limestone-based plateau that has been partially cleared for grazing, hunting cover, and the construction of cattle holding pens. The remaining area consists of sloping terrain and lower elevations with native grasses and hunting cover. Both the main home and casita are situated on the west bluff lines, offering stunning views of western sunsets.

IMPROVEMENTS:

The main residence is a stunning example of southwestern adobe style, offering 3,488 square feet of living space, 1100 square feet of porches, 1216 square feet of garage space, and 450 square feet of balconies. It is beautifully positioned on the high side of the western slope of the plateau.
