THE SANTA FE RANCH The ultimate in privacy, this is a unique, large land holding only 20 minutes from Santa Fe, offering extensive residential and livestock amenities, enormous 360-degree views and superb riding out possibilities. Steeped in Southwestern History, this 549-acre ranch was originally part of the Buckman Ranch. The principle holding, a unique parcel of land known as The Santa Fe Ranch, encompassing some of the very best, far-reaching mountain views found in the county. Residences comprise a four-bedroom headquarters house, three-bedroom guest house, and three-bedroom caretaker’s residence, offering tremendous flexibility. The land is well-suited for horse-back riding – it is spectacular and abuts thousands of acres of BLM land. There is an ornamental koi pond with water feature, and several golf tees and greens. The livestock facilities include a large, metal equipment barn/shop and separate shop, storage building, and animal pens. The property is served by four private wells. This is the estate of Suzanne “Zannie” Hoyt, who purchased the 31,000-acre Buckman Ranch from the Frank Bond family in 1960. Zannie and her husband ran a cattle operation and subsequently subdivided some of the land to create various subdivisions, including Las Campanas, keeping the best 550-acre “crown jewel” for herself and family. For history buffs, the Chile Line railroad ran through the lower portion of the ranch until 1941, when operations ceased.
