This private and very exclusive land is just two hours from Santa Fe, New Mexico… and four from Denver, CO, this radiant and very private terrain is large enough for agricultural usage, a vacation getaway home, cabin, cottage, and/or lodge with a substantial amount of room, if desired, for commercial intent. The vacant rural land is embedded deep within the mountains, and is accommodated by an access road from the highway for personal and construction purposes. It is fully furnished with a well and electric. Plus, it has an irrigation channel with complete water rights. This luxurious property is just walking distance from the majestic Conejos River, and 20 minutes from the historic town, Antonito.
Laying at approximately 7,888 feet in elevation, the area is rich in culture and a gateway to the gorgeous 40 mile Conejos River Canyon where outdoor enthusiasts can fish, hunt, hike, camp, bike-ride, and horseback. In the winter, also included is skiing and snowboarding. The property is just 10 miles west of the historical San Luis Valley and the small town of Platoro with its surrounding lake. Nearby to the property includes the Rio Grande National Forest, Twin Rivers, Las Mejitas, Fox Creek Ranch, and Chama, New Mexico. Also in close distance are the Sangre De Cristo and San Juan Mountains, and the Great Sand Dunes National Park, which is known as one of Colorado's most spectacular, constantly shifting, natural formations. And keep your eyes out for the Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge and the Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge where you're sure to spot many endangered birds including the Golden Eagle. It's breathtaking.
The land has been in the family for almost 50 years, and has never been touched. It was purchased for me as a baby in hopes of continuing the connection with nature. We grew up on this land; fishing, camping, and mostly enjoying its serenity and beauty. It's of extreme sentimental value to our family, and we just want to make sure it ends up in good hands. It's a warm, friendly environment with picturesque scenery. And, can provide a peaceful and exclusive getaway residence. If you feel like visiting the historic tourist spots and partaking in any of the surrounding adventures, you're only 10 to 30 miles away. Otherwise, you have the property all to yourself.
Fyi: We can also build to suit if interested.
The private vacant acreage is south of State Highway 17, approximately 1/4 mile east of Broiles Bridge in Conejos County, Colorado.
