Okay here is the dream….you want to escape the city life and you just want a place where you can hang your hat and if you want to stand on the porch and…do what you want over the edge….of the porch…without having to worry about a neighbor watching. You know what I mean don’t you? And you are coming to Colorado for the spectacular views, aren’t you?
You want a place that is not full of tourists and traffic and you want a setting that doesn’t encourage traffic too. Well I have to tell you these two 35 acre properties together have a lot to offer and they might be just what you have been looking for. Let’s continue and see….
First I will tell you that the road into this ranch is longer and steeper than most with some turns and switchbacks. That is the first thing that reduces traffic into this ranch. The road is south facing so that is good cause in the winter the snow burns off fast. This road will not work for some people but many have found it not to be a problem. You have to decide. The benefit again is that you won’t have a lot of traffic or lookie-lou’s giving you the privacy that you are looking for.
Second, these two properties are located at the end of the ranch roads and the end of the cul-de-sac road and these properties are on both sides of the ranch road for a good distance before the end of the cul-de-sac and your building site would be past the end of the cul-de-sac so you have got all the privacy that one could want. I would think that if you created a turn around near the beginning of the property you could put up an entrance gate further back on your property giving you even more privacy.
Third, I can take you all over this county and you will have a difficult time finding a 35 acre parcel for $100-150,000 with views half as incredible as what you have on this property. If the ranch access to these properties were better each of these 35 acre parcels would be worth $90,000 each from our experience. The views are just that awesome here!

You have views of the entire Sangre de Cristo range that is visible in this area and both Spanish Peaks and even Greenhorn Mountain to the north. Plus you have views of the Plains from here which are really incredible in the distance from this vantage point. You also have views of the beautiful Apishapa River Valley from these parcels which especially in the spring, summer and fall is breathtakingly beautiful. You will certainly see some of the most spectacular sunsets and sunrises from this parcel that you could ever dream to see!
So while access might deter some this parcel offers exactly what so many are looking for at one incredible low price for 70 acres of peaceful privacy! So what won’t work for some this will certainly work for the few that are looking for these special features.
The building site is practically in the middle of the two properties and the terrain drops off in all directions from the building site giving this feeling of total privacy and protection. You just have to see this property to see if it will work for you. Twice the acreage for the money in this area. Its a deal.
Power is to the property line but phone is cell only. They just recently installed new towers for Cell One and Verizon nearby so cell should work great.
