Located just 8 miles to the West of Sierra Blanca, and 80 miles South/South-East of El Paso astride Interstate 80. This property is truly a part of the "OLD WEST". Sierra Blanca was named after Sierra Blanca Mountain, just North-West of town. The town came into existence when competing railroads for a second (Southern) transcontinental railroad line came within 10 miles of one another in 1881. Jay Gould, famous railroad magnate and robber baron, drove a silver spike commemorating the event on Dec. 15th 1881. The town sprang up around that spot, although the population didn't reach 350 people until 1914. It is best described as grazing land that is flat to slightly sloping terrain covered with desert sagebrush and grasses. This acreage is raw unimproved land without publicly maintained roads. Some utilities in the area or that cross part of the ranches include electric, and telephone.
Use the property to camp, hunt (hunting in the area includes big horn sheep, mule deer, javalina, mountain lion, antelope, quail and dove), hike, horseback ride, ATV, vacation, star gaze, build a residence/ranch, hold as an asset for future speculation purposes, or pass it on to the children/ grandchildren, or just to say you own a piece of the great American West, where Blue Skies and Majestic Clouds are common: As they say, "LAND; THEY AREN'T MAKING ANY MORE OF IT!!!
As of 8/2008 there are NO COUNTY ZONING RESTRICTIONS on the property. You can build a Ranch / Home, Install a Mobile Home or Commercial Building or simply use it as a camping site when you are in the area. However, as is the case with any city, county or State in the United States you must comply with all permit requirements, building regulations, etc. that may be required by government agencies, prior to building any structures. Keep in mind that this is raw acreage and there are no homeowner services of any kind on the property.
There is LEGAL access to the ranch via Lasca Road, and legal access to each parcel. We are also reserving easements for utility access to each parcel that does not currently have electric on the property.
Parcels 1 thru 26 are surveyed and the corners of each parcel marked as of 08/2007. Some pins were set in various points. Please see the Plat / Subdivision Map for location and type of pins/rods that were set by the surveyor.
The owner of the property has the right to drill a water well . Although we DO NOT guarantee the success of a well or the quality of water, based on well drillers in the area it appears water is found around the 150 to 900 ft depth. For information, we suggest you contact well drillers that perform their services in that area.
Currently a single power pole runs thru parcels 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 22, 24 & 26. (See the Subdivision Map for exact locations) No individual meters have been set. An easement has been reserved across the parcels that have the existing electric line. to insure the other parcels that do not currently have power will be able to bring power to their property in the most efficient manner.
