Property description

RECENTLY OFFERED FOR $18 MILLION. NOW SELLING ON SEPTEMBER 26TH WITHOUT RESERVE! Boasting 3,250 picturesque acres, Saddleback Ranch is a legacy property that will delight generations to come. Wide-open spaces, expansive views, and an extraordinary pedigree traceable for more than 100 years define the ranch, but it is not isolated; indeed, it is ideally located just minutes from downtown Santa Fe. The ranch also offers its own motion picture history: both Johnny Depp’s Lone Ranger and the acclaimed western series Longmire have been filmed here.

With four main living structures ranging from a cozy casita to an impressive, 7,300-sf estate, Saddleback Ranch offers an exceptional opportunity for large families, or for those interested in realizing dreams of a cattle or equestrian operation in an unmatched natural setting. The architectural-award-winning Windland House, designed by architect Suby Bowden and built by Robert Slattery, took the American Institute of Architects Honor Award for Top Architecture of the year in 2002 and the Thornberg Charitable Foundation First Jeff Harnar Award for Contemporary Architecture in 2007, in addition to hosting multiple tours for New York’s Museum of Modern Art and Whitney and local organizations Site Santa Fe and the Center for Contemporary Arts. Windland offers 2 master suites, 2 full and 1 half baths, and an attached "casita" with an additional 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths in approximately 6,100 sf.

The largest of the properties, called Drogheda house, is designed in a more traditional adobe style, and offers 6 bedrooms, 6 full and two half baths in 7,264 sf with a 1,100 sf heated garage and nearly 2,000 sf of portals ideal for enjoying sublime sunsets over Drogheda’s pond. Additional living structures include the 3 bedroom, 3 full and 1 half bath Chamisa house and foreman’s quarters with 2 beds and 2 full baths. The Ranch Center offers an additional apartment with 1 bedroom and 1 full bath.

The Ranch Center also offers 10 stalls, a wash stall, and tack room for resident equines, with an additional living area complete with office, game room, living room, half bath and den for grooms and guests. Cattle and equestrian operations have previously been run on the Ranch, with 13 wells and unlimited grazing rights supporting the operations of more than 80 head of cattle - and capable of supporting more.

Multiple heated and unheated structures provide garage space and equipment storage – and each building offers panoramic views of the Sangre de Cristo, Sandia, Ortiz and Jemez mountain ranges as well as the breathtaking Galisteo Basin.
