This area of Valencia  county is surrounded by Rio Grande Estates and Rio del Oro and is east of State Hwy 47, Rio Communities Blvd. Nestled near the foothills of the Manzano mountains, Canyon del Rio holds tremendous natural beauty along with the challenge of a remote, isolated location.

Imagine you’ve just turned off Hwy 47, you hear the crunch of the gravel road as you leave the pavement. Driving slower now, you head towards the mountains, passing the few homes already built. Gradually those homes are no longer and the mountains seem larger, closer and full of life. You continue along the flat, dirt road – dust kicking up behind you. A left, then a right, then another left. As you cross the dry wash you stop and get out. Amidst the wide, open landscape with the now, very close mountains as a background, you are at your property.

VIA continues to be the oversight for Canyon Del Rio and the Rio Del Oro Sub-Divisions and helps to enhance the communities through partnerships with the City of Rio Communities , Valencia County and the State of New Mexico.

From the pictures it may look very remote and it is, but there are neighbors, especially to the south in the foothills of the mountains. And if this property interests you, then they are probably people just like you.


Some 5 Acre Examples:

In this example above, there is a wash that fills with water when it rains running across the front of the property. This forces the house more towards the back where it is fenced off from the surrounding area. There appears to be a garden next to the house with some sheds towards the back of the property.

Here, the homeowner has fenced off the back third of the property for animals, leaving the house open to the rest of the property. Behind the house there appears to be some grass, a shed for equipment accessible to the animal area and a small pavilion that may be for relaxation or may cover a well and/or holding tank for water. Solar panels could also easily be installed on the roof of the main house.

These are just some examples of what other people have done with 5 acres. Of course your layout will be different, reflecting your dreams and desires. Why not get started now . . .
