If you've ever wished you could live on the Ponderosa, maybe a ranch in New Mexico is your dream home.

This 1,500-square-foot, hogan-style log home is in Glorieta, N.M., roughly 22 miles southeast of Santa Fe.

Built in 2006, the three-bedroom, two-bath house has vaulted, beamed ceilings and Saltillo-tiled floors with radiant heating throughout, says Belinda Young, associate broker with Coldwell Banker Trails West Realty Ltd.

"It's a very open-concept" living room, dining room and kitchen, she says. "It has an amazing stone fireplace." Numerous windows and glass brick give the round home "light and great views."

The kitchen has custom pine cabinets, high-end stainless appliances and oak butcher-block counters with tile inlays, says Young.

The master suite overlooks the rock garden. The master bathroom has a hand-painted Mexican porcelain sink and matching blue-tiled vanity, she says.

Drinking water comes from the property's artesian well. And the metal roof funnels rainwater into barrels for outdoor use, Young says. Propane fuels the heat and hot water.

The 22.79-acre property in New Mexico's high desert has lots of trees, Young says, and comes with several acres of fenced pasture, a fenced corral, a tack room and a hay barn.
