The Trinity Ranch is located in Otero County, New Mexico between Sierra Blanca on the East, Tularosa/Alamogordo on the South, and Carrizozo on the North. It is accessed via US Highway 54. The Trinity Ranch is comprised of approximately Two Thousand Four Hundred Fifty Eight (2,458) Deeded Acres of Land and any appurtenant Water Rights, and approximately Two Thousand Five Hundred (2500) Acres of New Mexico State Lease Land and Bureau of Land Management Lease Land, and any appurtenant water rights. The Ranch also retains much of its original mineral rights.

The Trinity Ranch lies to the West of Sierra Blanca and the White Mountains and just to the South of the Three Rivers Ranch. The Trinity Ranch is comprised of gently rolling hills and valleys with the higher elevations to the East and sloping downward to the West. Vegetation on the Trinity Ranch consists of a variety of gramma grasses, alfalfa, sacatone and mesquite. A number of natural water courses traverse the property with seasonal runoff. The White Mountains, the White Mountain Wilderness area and Sierra Blanca to the East all have substantial Elk and Mule Deer populations and the Trinity Ranch provides great winter habitat for these animals. In addition, many Oryx (Gemsbok) call the Trinity Ranch home on a year round basis. As a consequence, there are substantial hunting opportunities on the Trinity Ranch and the ranch could very productively be managed for hunting or conservation.

The Trinity Ranch has historically been a very productive farm having had over twelve hundred (1,200) acres under irrigation growing primarily alfalfa. There are Eleven (11) irrigation wells on the Trinity Ranch that have historically produced water for the irrigation of the twelve hundred acres and a network of underground pipelines that tie many of the irrigation wells together. Many of the original irrigation pivots remain in place. All of the wells were historically pumped using gasoline and diesel engines. Irrigation has not been actively pursued in the past several years and the status of the water rights on the ranch are currently in dispute with the New Mexico State Engineer’s Office. However, this dispute provides a very significant opportunity for the new owner of the Trinity Ranch. The current owner of the Trinity Ranch is not interested in pursuing the reestablishment of the water rights on the Ranch and has priced the Ranch accordingly. If successful, a new owner could create very significant value by reestablishing water rights at the Trinity Ranch. Lawyers Real Estate Services has assembled a team of highly qualified and experienced professionals standing ready to undertake this opportunity for the new owners under terms to be negotiated. This Ranch provides substantial opportunities for the new owner from farming, hunting, conservation, mineral development and recreation. The Ranch is VERY private and VERY quiet. The Ranch boasts great views of Sierra Blanca and the White Mountains and the White Mountain Wilderness to the East and dramatic views of White Sands and the Organ and San Andres Mountains to the West. There are a number of superb building sites on the Ranch for the new owner’s home/compound that offer privacy, dramatic views and peace and quiet.

The Trinity Ranch is offered exclusively by Lawyers Real Estate Services, LLC at One Million Nine Hundred Ninety Nine Thousand Dollars ($1,999,000.00). Call David M. Stevens to arrange a site visit. You will be glad you did.
