3 acres in zone 7b in New Mexico with a year round creek, lots of trees, and a cute little house. It will be a VERY interesting microclimate to work with because the access to water is fantastic and will allow me to do a LOT! There's a lot of diversity on the property, but the pasture is mostly growing large rocks.
I don't know if the offer is going to go anywhere, but I'm very hopeful and excited and had to share.
Sounds like a really nice piece of land. I like diversity.
I think that, if all goes well, and you get this plot, then it has the potential to really produce something good. (on all levels). Nothing more exciting than getting that blank canvas to work with.

Signed the contract and sending it back today!
Congratulations. Did they accept your original offer, or did you have to dicker?

One counteroffer and it was what we expected them to do, so it was all good
Here's the topo map overlaid on the google map. I'm not 100% sure I've got the boundaries upon the hill north and east of the house correctly as frankly, I didn't climb up there to see exactly where the survey markers go, so I'm approximating from the old survey I have a photocopy of. (We're getting a new one done)
It's pretty sheltered and it has great water- year round creek with great flow! The trees across the road on the west side need some cleanup (it's about half wildflower meadow and half cottonwood, I'd like to encourage the meadow and limit the cottonwood, and I'm probably going to put a drylot paddock in over there for critters eventually; there's a small barn) By the house along the creek, I'd like to thin out the trees as well because frankly, it'd be a more useable space with a bit more openness, and there's a couple trees that are having their roots washed out by the creek anyway so I'd rather get them down in a controlled fashion rather than them falling over the driveway inevitably at an inconvienent time....)
I am very excited, and also kind of apprehensive, because well, a lot to do before the move! The next few weeks will focus here on packing up my house to get it on the market.
