Bell Tower | KW
This lovely property comprised of two parcels has 11.168 acres of land. Many decades ago Myrtle Stedman and her husband planted and harvested alfalfa hay. They had small orchards of apple, cherry and apricot trees throughout the property. On occasion neighbors horses were allowed to graze on the property. In the late 1960s a huge flood down the Tesuque creek destroyed the upstream "take out" for the ancient acequia (ditch) that serviced the property. The property went for many years without irrigation but in time, the State Engineer agreed that an irrigation well could be drilled to replace the water that had been supplied by the acequia. The well was drilled and can now supply the land with 24.79 acre feet of water. The well provides for many opportunities for serious agriculture. Orchards and gardens could once again come to life on the property. With the application of current technology including drip irrigation and sprinkler systems the farming operation would be relatively easy to run and almost labor free. Just minutes north of Santa Fe proper in the quaint community of Tesuque, the land also offers a wonderful environment for a small horse farm along with other animals like chickens, ducks, geese and goats.
