Romero Lake is 143 acres of paradise.
Situated off the slopes of Escudilla Mountain, Romero Lake is just 7.2 miles from the quaint mountain town of Alpine Arizona and only 15 minutes from Luna New Mexico. This property offers the best of both worlds; proximity and property values of Alpine coupled with New Mexico’s lower property taxes and land owner elk tags. The state border between AZ and NM is Romero Lake’s western boundary. Across the fence, it is not uncommon to take 15-20 years to draw an elk tag in AZ unit 1. The new owner of this prime property will receive both a muzzle loader and an archery tag each year. Imagine leaving your cabin in the morning and hunting right from your property. This is a real possibility.
Nestled under Turner Peak on the New Mexico side, Romero Lake is in super prime elk country. The property is a large riparian bottom with a very nice 20.6 surface acre lake in the middle which is spring fed. This trout lake has a depth of 10-12 feet with a very nice dam and spillway. The current owner has developed solar bubblers.
Possibilities are endless on this property, but the foundation and infrastructure are already in place. This is a perfect retreat that is secluded and surrounded by national forest on three sides. It is a complete in holding on the New Mexico side. Property ownership with elk hunting and trout fishing in the Southwest is a rarity. Romero Lake is a true gem, with nothing else like it in the region.
