Siler Road Area – New Developments

The Siler Road area isn’t what you’d think would be the most exciting part of Santa Fe. Long an uninteresting industrial area supporting local businesses, warehouses, materials yards, and manufacturing facilities, the area is undergoing a renaissance in the past few years.

The first signs of hipness happened when Meow Wolf (with the help of George RR Martin) took a  look at the long abandoned Silva Lanes bowling alley (my kids are still sad it closed down) and decided it would be the perfect place to create their magical funhouse. After a year plus of renovation, they opened their new artspace which can only be described as indescribable. It was instantly a hit and outpaced initial visit estimates by an incredible amount and drew over 400,000 visitors in the first year. It has been listed nationally on many websites and travel blogs and their visit numbers are expected to continue to grow. Be sure to check out the new food truck – Trinity Kitchen – serving up Louisiana-style barbecue and other treats.

Second Street Brewery – a venerated Santa Fe brewpub with 2 locations – decided to purchase and renovate an old warehouse on Siler Road. Most of the square footage is devoted to the new brewing facility, something that will help them keep up with demand of their award winning ales and lagers. But the front third of the building will be the new taproom, which will also offer live music and a light menu.

Around the corner is another new brewpub serving up a different style of beer. Focusing mostly on sours and Belgian ales – Rowley’s Farmhouse is another cool place to check out. It’s not your typical pub, and not your typical pub food.

Imus Ranch heading to auction June 15th

Don Imus Ranch to be Auctioned

The Don Imus Ranch located in northern New Mexico will be going to auction. Originally listed at $35 million 3 years ago with no takers, the auction will be held June 15th with a minimum opening bid of $5 million. Interested parties must put a $100,000 refundable cash deposit down for bidding.

The upcoming auction is expected to be run by Thomas Industries of Guilford, Conn., said Barry Chappel, an executive vice president at the firm.

Imus also found it ‘hard to breathe’ after suffering an injury while horseback riding several years ago. The ranch, located at 7,000 ft., has over 2,400 acres.

Interested parties should contact the listing agent Craig Huitfeldt of Keller Williams.
