Property Type:



Nice gentleman's ranch at Lake Sumner located 13 miles northwest of Ft. Sumner, New Mexico (burial place of Billy the Kid), and a town rich in history of New Mexico. This ranch joins Sumner Lake State Park, providing recreational enjoyment while being excellent forage for cattle or horses. This ranch should sustain 30 cows yearlong with normal rainfall conditions. Good stands of Grama grasses are well established on this ranch making it a good home for animals. There is average working pens and fences on the ranch with a submersible well and electricity at one well and a windmill on the other well. The well with electricity is in an excellent spot on a hill, overlooking the lake, making a great spot for a home. The Ft. Sumner Municipal Airport has sufficient runways to handle small jet traffic, and the ranch has paved highway access all the way to the ranch gate, just off the highway. Sumner Lake has 1,436 surface acres of water according to New Mexico State Parks, with 3 separate boat ramps. Sumner Lake has a good reputation for fishing, with Bass, Crappie, Catfish and Walleye being taken. Pronghorn and Mule Deer are often seen on this ranch along with Blue Quail. Owner indicates that one half of minerals owned and one half of wind rights will be conveyed with the sale of this ranch. This is an excellent opportunity for a developer since this ranch joins Sumner Lake State Park. This ranch is a good cow or yearling ranch also, if development is not your thing. This ranch is realistically priced at $500 per deeded acre. There is 1700 deeded acres, making the asking price $850,000.
