Why so many 35 Acre Parcels in Colorado?
In 1972 the State of Colorado passed a law that required you to have a minimum of 35 acres in order to get a domestic water well permit. Thank goodness they did this as it has really given both the residents and wildlife plenty of space to live in harmony. Also because of the size of these parcels most land developers applied some sort of basic covenants to allow for yearly fees mostly road maintenance and common areas up keep. So the majority of these ranch developments have what we call Protective Covenants and not to be confused with restrictive covenants like you might get in a condo or home owners association. We do have more information here on our website about ranch covenants and we are happy to explain more about them, just ask.
Living in the mountains is much different than living in the city and we can help you understand what to expect. We like to just tell it like it is so that you are fully prepared for your new adventure here. You are going to find lots of high quality digital photos of each of our listings that we took ourselves. We don’t just get out on the road and snap a photo…you have seen them…a photo of the road and a bush or tree.
Viewing Mountain Properties
We get to know our listings intimately mostly because we just love them and want to see what they have to offer but also because we want to be able to share them in detail with you. Hiking a 35 acre parcel in the mountains can be daunting if you aren’t used to it coming from the city. We know…we have been there done that when we moved here. This is where our nearly 20 years of experience comes in. If we know of a “sweet spot” on a property we are going to want to show it to you and many of these you just can’t see from the road. But we don’t need to hike all properties and many times we can just drive by and you will immediately know if you like it or not.
Mountain properties ranging in size from 35 acres and larger is what we know and do best. And this is what we have been doing since 1995 in this beautiful area. We have worked with the original developers on many local ranches right from the beginning so we know these properties very well and know what they have to offer. Most of the time we feel more like a tour guide as we are sharing with you about the local area, the ranches and all it has to offer. So you are going to get an education when you spend a day or two with us. Listen speaking of that just so you know looking at mountain acreage is not like looking at homes. Many times we have to drive 45 minutes to get to a parcel and then it could take that long or more to explore it if you like it and then you drive to the next property. So be sure to allow enough time, we can help you with that too.

Viewing Properties On Your Own
We also can work with those who really like to find the listings on their own.
