38 Acres on Highway 12


You just don’t very often find a 35 acre or larger parcel for sale along Highway 12 west of Trinidad. Why is this special? Since this parcel is not part of a subdivision and it has no covenants it has to potential to be used either as a homesite and also a commercial business (with the right permits acquired of course). We can imagine a Log Home Builder would love to have this kind of exposure along Highway 12 where they could have a demo log home or home office. Lots of potential uses for other businesses to.

So not only does this have these wonderful potential uses it also has an existing water well that is rated at 15 gpm, although it was rated higher than this when it was drilled, that is what the state records say. But if you know anything about water wells in this area 15 gpm is an awesome domestic water well.

There is also a new septic on this property that would be perfect for a home, business or even to use it when you park your RV or Trailer when you visit or are building. You would have to check with the County and get the necessary permits before using it but that is normal.

I haven’t even mentioned the awesome views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains that you get from this parcel either, in addition to the natural beauty of the rock outcropping on this property and the surrounding area. This parcel borders Highway 12 which is a paved State Highway which means that it gets great maintenance and snow removal. So if you are looking for a place that has good access on really good road this parcel has a lot to offer.

Okay so back to Highway 12. This parcel borders Highway 12 and just across this road is the Purgatory River so you have river and river bottom views as well. This is also why we think that it has such a good water well. The river area is really beautiful in this area and it attracts a lot of wildlife that are coming and going to the river. There is no public access to the river here but there is not too far away. You are also just a few miles from the Bosque del Oso Wildlife area that spans about 30,000 acres. When I say a few miles it really is only about 3-4 miles away. Check it out Bosque del Oso

The property is a mix of usable ground including meadows and a draw as well as some hills and rock outcroppings. Great for horses and also alpacas. It feels really private because of the large berm along Highway 12 that gives you privacy from the main road, it blocks some road noise too which really isn’t that loud anyway. So if you are looking for a property that has a lot of potential uses this is certainly one to consider.

Internet is one of those things that is hard to get good service with depending on where you are in the County. I think this property would have access to good internet from one of the Cell phone companies. Notice the large tower in the distance in some of the photos looking to the left of the mountains and you will see the new cell tower. The signal is strong out here and I think it is AT&T.

It is easy to find and explore on your own or give us a call and we can give you the grand tour and show you all the corner pins etc. Check out the plat below and all the photos. We took the photos at the end of the summer near fall so there is not much green grass in them but we did manage to get a few fall color shots to include.

So to recap this property borders State Highway 12, has a really good 15 gpm water well, a septic installed, power, phone, meadows, mountain views and no covenants. Yeah. Come check this property out soon!
