Inside the New Mexico 297-Acre Luxury Recreational Ranch Retreat Featured in "Outer Range" Series


Oh, the stories this property could tell. A breathtaking 297-acre luxury recreational retreat in New Mexico's north-central mountains, once a filming location for the hit series "Outer Range" starring Josh Brolin, is on the market for $9 million.

Over 10,000 square feet of rugged-meet-refined living space, five bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths complete the property. The centerpiece of the ranch, the main residence – a log lodge constructed with timbers sourced from British Columbia, where Brolin filmed many scenes – offers three bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, and two additional half-baths. According to listing agents Stanley Harrell and Lisa Sutton, "the home offers a very private setting with exceptional views to the west ranging from Pecos Wilderness to the Wheeler Peak Wilderness. It also has a great view of Black Lake where the beloved miniseries Lonesome Dove was filmed." It's a stunning sanctuary for nature lovers, who might catch glimpses of the resident elk population moving across the hills. 

Inside the lodge, one is greeted by a sense of grandeur with multiple living areas meant to accommodate large gatherings. Sweeping vaulted ceilings in the entry living area frame the spectacular views and highlight two impressive rock fireplaces. The gourmet kitchen has been recently updated with top-of-the-line Sub-Zero appliances, granite countertops, and a functional island complemented by a spacious pantry.  A cozy sitting area with its own fireplace provides a more intimate space for quieter moments. Adding to the ambiance are seven strategically placed fireplaces throughout the main house. All are masonry constructions with the option of gas ignition for easy fire starting or conversion to gas logs. The master suite embodies luxury, featuring a soaring vaulted ceiling, a fireplace, and a private patio accessible from both the bedroom and the bathroom. The lavish master bath boasts double vanities, a center island with ample storage, a soaking tub, and a separate shower. Completing the picture of comfort are spacious double walk-in closets. A separate one-bedroom, one-bath apartment resting above the three-car garage provides additional living space for guests or staff. Two dedicated office areas cater to work-from-home needs, while a temperature-controlled wine cellar with a tasting area is perfect for the oenophile who wishes to entertain guests.  Completing the home are a dedicated workout area, ample storage space and a lower level providing private storage and dedicated maintenance storage areas. An air-lock service entry offers convenient access for the apartment, garage, and main house.

Beyond the walls, meticulously maintained native landscaping and tranquil water features surround the main house, creating an inspiring outdoor setting for the large patio, fireplace and grill area. A guest house/caretakers cottage – recently converted from a barn and workshop and restored with new windows, doors and insulation – is located on the lower portion of the property. Inside this space, you'll find a great room with a full living room and kitchen, and a bedroom and bath with a loft area with twin beds – an ideal haven for guests.  A nearby corral area has been transformed into a barbeque/outdoor living space. A three-car garage/storage building is also located on this area of the property.  

Los Cielos Ranch resides at the gateway to untamed western adventure, lying just 10 miles south of the Angel Fire Resort and just 35 miles from Taos.
