MONUMENT CREEK CONSERVANCY
380 ACRES | CONSERVATION EASEMENT | OFF-GRID PROPERTY
A true land conservation gem! Monument Creek Conservancy is a 380-acre property located in the foothills of the Black Range just southwest of Winston in Sierra County. The original owners placed a conservation easement over the entire property in 2004 and subsequently donated the property to the Northern Jaguar Project. The property is at an elevation of about 6,500 feet with rolling topography consisting of mixed piñon-juniper woodlands with montane grassland areas. A narrow band of riparian woodland is found along Monument Creek, an intermittent stream.
The conservation easement restricts further subdivision of the property, but does allow for two building sites. One of the building sites currently includes an off-grid adobe home with six solar racks, a concrete pad for trailer, sunroom with decks, outhouse, sheds, pump house and a total of six water storage tanks totalling approximately 6,000 gallons of water storage captured from rooftops and 8,000 gallons that can be filled by well water. The other building site currently has no structures.
The property is completely off-grid. Electrical power is supplied by a system of solar panels and batteries. Drinking water is supplied by rooftop collection systems and a well that is about 200’ deep. There is a septic leach field onsite.
If you have ever dreamed of living off-grid in New Mexico, the Monument Creek Conservancy property is for you!
