Large acres are hard to come by. You can find a 5 acre, maybe a10 acre, but a 15 acre? This is rare.
This nearly 15 acre property sits high up in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains on Starkweather Rd. Well maintained roads lead to this property giving you easy access nearly all year, winter can be trickier at nearly 11K feet in elevation. The trees are amazing up off the valley floor, 40'-60' tall, giving you the seclusion, shade, and wildlife habitat that brings people to this area. The views at this height are picture perfect. When you think of the Colorado landscape, you see the view from this property. You are looking out over thousands and thousands of rolling hills and mountains. The layers of purple and blue mountains on the horizon, and snow covered pines, and the endless sky gives you the backdrop you have been searching for. Life slows down here allowing you to relax and enjoy nature.
This property has a couple different sets of photos, the ones without leaves were mid April and the ones with leaves are from June 1st. The property has a very nice mixture of Aspens, Pine and Spruce. There are some downed trees that we will leave so you can use them for a project or burn wood for heat. The property also has shrubs and natural foliage so when building, you can maintain the natural Colorado landscape. We would love to see a cabin sitting out in this off-grid location. This is a sparsely populated area so you will feel like you own the mountain top.
A 600 square feet structure and a septic system is required to build. Solar power is the most popular source and you can drill a well or haul your water. There are several local contractors we can put you in contact with to get this done efficiently. It's easy to make a weekend getaway or become a permanent Colorado resident.
The location of this property allows for excellent views but also a quick trip to town. You won't want to come down from your perch but if you must, it's 45 minutes down the mountain is Fort Garland where you can buy all the immediate necessities. Alamosa is an hour 15min and has all the small city luxuries you could want. There is local entertainment, tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants, big box stores, bars and breweries. People come from all over the country to see the Great Sand Dunes, Zapata Falls, and stargaze at the dark sky park.
Discounted Cash Price is $49,900 or we could offer owner financing with $20,000 Down and monthly payments of $1000 for 36 months.
