• Off •

the Grid

Cummings Latir Mountain Ranch is the ideal property for those who want privacy and solitude. Located eight miles north of Questa, NM a small New Mexico village with a population of only 1,700 people, this ranch is off the beaten path. You enter through a private gate and travel the winding ranch road approximately one mile toward the mountain to the headquarters.

At the headquarters is a main house, a greenhouse to grow your own fruits and vegetables, two additional homes, a horse barn, and a shop. The shop has two bays and an office. There is a huge solar powered backup generator housed at the shop. This generator is large enough to power the main house and other facilities at the headquarters. There is also a 10,000 gallon diesel below ground storage tank and a 10,000 gallon below ground gasoline storage tank. Propane is stored in seven 800 gallon propane tanks that are also buried underground. Also at the shop is a large Conex freezer.

There are three water wells on this ranch, two of which are designated for domestic use and one for livestock water. Latir Creek runs throughout the property and feeds the pond at the headquarters. Water for irrigating the 91 +/- acres of improved pastureland comes from the pond through underground pipe and above ground irrigation gate pipe.

An hour up the mountain from the headquarters and accessible by four-wheel drive only is the High Country Cabin, a completely self-sustained cabin. This cabin will sleep eight and has solar power, underground propane storage, a septic system, and water that is diverted from the Latir Creek into a cistern and pumped into the cabin with a solar powered pressure tank.

Quiet, secluded, and private...Cummings Latir Mountain Ranch can fit your "Off the Grid" lifestyle.
