Set apart by a private lake and heavily improved with barns, a shop, and various dwellings, this High Plains property meets all kinds of needs. The good grass and divided pastures anchor a small cattle operation. Plentiful deer, elk, antelope, and turkey provide quality hunting. Water resources include 3 wells, 3 stock ponds, and the spring-fed lake. A nice 1800 sq ft 3-bedroom Karsten home is the main residence, with a guest residence built inside an adjacent barn, and a small rustic hunting cabin overlooking the little lake. The lake has been stocked with fish in the past. A well-equipped 60 x 40 metal shop has a concrete floor with office and bathroom. The headquarters has a back-up generator, 2 other large metal garage buildings with a variety of build-outs, and a horse barn with stalls and tack room. Just across the county road is a hay barn, and there is also a caliche pit on the northern edge of the land.
The owners affectionately call this place the Lazy P. They are getting to retirement age and are ready to sell, but you can tell they have enjoyed the ranch and community. The ranch is 3 miles off black top and just 6 miles from the friendly town of Roy, population 231 with a cafe, a grocery store, and gas pumps. Mosquero, the county seat, is only 20 miles away with a few more services. Santa Fe is 2 hours away.
Grasslands abutting Canyonlands make for stunningly scenic country. If you've never been in this beautiful country, you owe it to yourself to take look.
