The ranch is comprised of mostly gently rolling topography with good solid turf on sandy loam soil, some Cedars and arroyos providing protection for livestock and wildlife habitat. Pajarito Creek traverses the ranch from Southwest to Northeast providing 80 foot breaks between mesas and spectacular vistas across the ranch. Vegetation on the ranch consists of blue and side oats grama, galleta, other grasses native to the area and some Cedar and Mesquite trees along with a scattering of Pinon Pine. The ranch is in a conservation stewardship program through 2020.
Pajarito Creek Ranch is highly improved with a custom built home at the headquarters, all weather roads, several water wells, an engineered concrete creek crossing and many other assets. Located at the headquarters is the owners home which was built in 2012. The southwest, ranch style home has approximately 2,704 square feet of living space and is designed so that the front of the stucco home looks out across the horizon toward Mesa del Gato. Features of the home include three bedrooms, two and baths, living area, dining/sitting area with an Excelsior wood burning fireplace, large kitchen with soap stone counter tops, farmers sink and stainless steel appliances including a top of the line, BlueStar gas range. There are Red Oak wood and porcelain tile floors throughout the home, custom solid wood doors, Maple cabinets and custom windows. The home also has two separate central heating and air conditioning units. The exterior of the home features a metal roof, front and back porches with large Fir posts and capital design, a Pine tongue and groove patio ceiling, xeriscape landscaping, pipe-rail fencing and panoramic views. The property has an auxiliary 48 KW generator which is fueled by propane for emergency power or off the grid living. Additional buildings at the headquarters include a metal frame barn/shop (40X90) with a concrete floor, two overhead doors, electricity and an overhang on the east side of the building. Inside of the barn/shop is also a 1,200+/- square foot apartment/bunk house which includes a kitchen, living area with a wood burning stove, bedroom and bathroom. There is also a metal frame shop/garage (24X30) with a concrete floor, electricity and an overhead door and a trailer/equipment shed with an insulated storage area (14X40) in the center of two overhangs.
The ranch is watered by 5 wells (6 well permits are documented) with water being pumped by wind mill powered pumps in 2 wells and 3 wells equipped with submersible electric motors and pumps on electricity. One of the wells is reported by the owner as capable of pumping 450 GPM and has been used as commercial water supply well in the past though the well currently has a HP submersible pump. This well is connected by pipeline to a holding pond and also a large supply tank but the tank that is not connected to any drinkers. The well that supplies the owners home has a backup 16 KW generator for the pump. One storage tank is located at the commercial well along I-40 at the East boundary of the ranch and another storage tank is located at the owners home. Additionally there are several drinkers on pipelines and earthen dams (dirt tanks in Texas) providing more than adequate water resources for the ranch.
At the main working pens on the east side of the ranch there is a permanent loading/unloading chute, covered cattle working area, steel pens and an overhead feed bin. There are also two other sets of steel pens, one set located south of I-40 on the far north portion of the ranch and another located in the central area of the ranch. The Pajarito Creek Ranch has good to excellent exterior fences and interior fences with many miles of new fence. North of the interstate is approximately 700 acres including two traps and also a nice double-wide modular home and barn. The south portion of the ranch is divided into two large pastures plus two traps in the west pasture and a trap in the east pasture plus the private leased ground which is used as a trap.
Wildlife is a significant feature of the ranch with mule deer and antelope being prevalent along with many forms of other small wildlife. Elk also are occasionally seen on the ranch. The ranch has been hunted very little in the past much.
