The main home is one story, wood frame construction on concrete blocks with gable, metal roof containing approximately 937 square feet, and a small front porch.

Walls are 10' and the metal roof is 12x12 pitch, so another 10' to the peak, giving plenty of room for large work in the shop or adding a loft space. The shop is flanked by two 40' containers - one currently being used for hay storage, the other for tack room and storage. Water is supplied from a well, electricity is supplied by the Socorro Electric Co-op. Fencing and stock water improvements are generally considered basic to the operation of ranching and livestock grazing and simply ready for a new owner to maintain and continue to improve!!!!
