This location is perfect as a Prepper Place, as it happens to be on the east side of the Continental Divide behind 3 tall mountains that would dissipate a wall of radioactivity coming from California or Arizona.  The "Top Secret" I mentioned earlier is that in Joel M Skousen's book – "Strategic Relocations" is that New Mexico only has a two star prepper rating as far as the States are concerned so it is NOT promoted as a "Prepper Area", BUT there is one sentence in the chapter on New Mexico, where he states on page 235, "To find safe places in New Mexico, one has to carefully locate away from the major population centers, the nuclear targets and the hostile zone with Mexico.  Generally, that leaves the far northern area and the mountains bordering Arizona", where this property is.

This 4.21 acre property is beautifully treed, level land with a gentle slope at the back of the property.  There is also a leveled pad for another building be it a home, shop or whatever you wish to add.  Tucked in a peaceful, "protected by mountains" valley, this cozy, partly furnished, move-in-ready cabin / studio has a full size double-car garage attached.  Winters are beautiful with many sunny days and minimal snow.  There are more elk than people in Catron County, New Mexico.  In fact, there is only 1/2 person per square mile.  As our area is still one of the 7 dark areas left on the planet, you can star gaze, and actually see the milky way.  Due to our closeness to the "Very Large Array", we also have very few to no Chem Trails.

Bring or buy a telescope and you'll see even more!  Besides the cabin and garage, this 7600 elevation property includes:  Electricity brought in via electric poles; Gravel driveway meets concrete ramp into garage; Septic is in and operational; Electric garage door opener; Baseboard heat in garage and cabin; Evap Cooler in a window of the garage; The Hot water heater is in the garage and supplies hot water to both the cabin and garage.  Furnishings (if wanted):  A twin size bed w/sheets, pillow and bedspread, a fridge, stove, toaster, coffee maker, blender, tea kettle, utensils for cooking and eating, glasses, mugs, dishes, pots and pans, small table and chairs in the breakfast nook.

As mentioned earlier, this little cabin is move-in-ready!  Any questions, give us a shout at 575-772-5888 or send an email to:
