Colorado Mountain Acreage for Sale near Montrose, Co
Larger acreages are becoming more and more scarce, and this one is in a desirable mountain neighborhood southwest of Montrose, one of the fastest-growing towns in Colorado. This parcel is 100 acres of mostly forested land with a couple of open meadows and a small draw that is a favorite corridor for wildlife to travel through the property. Situated on the north end of Ouray County, the property has a mixture of pinyon-juniper forest, oak brush, and sagebrush meadows. The property is accessed by traveling US 550 south from Montrose about 9 miles toward Ridgway, then heading southwest about 4 miles on County Road 1 towards Horsefly Mesa. Travel time to Montrose is about 20 minutes, with the last three miles by well-maintained gravel roads.
Mountain land for sale has three wells, water tap, homesite
It's rare for a parcel this size to have such an abundance of domestic water resources. The property was the site of a nice home, which unfortunately burned a few years ago. The homesite still remains, with its domestic well, septic system, power service, and driveway ready for a new residence to be built. Additionally, there are two more permitted wells that have been drilled on the property, as well as a Tri-County Water Company domestic water tap. The property could be divided into two distinct parcels with very little county review.

There are vast tracts of public BLM lands to the east and west of the property, only 3/4 of a mile distant. Hunting in the area is known to be excellent, and game can be harvested on the property.
