Piedra Riverside Farm & Ranch
Sportsman's Paradise priced to sell.
This +/- 26 acres of river frontage, located on the banks of the Piedra River, holds monster browns and rainbows and is the gateway to the 1.8 million-acre San Juan National Forest, located just across the road. The river flows straight out of the Weminuche Wilderness and is gold medal water, with over +/- 1000 ft. of private frontage and several very deep holes right on the property. There is an additional 26 miles of public water above the property in the forest. Water rights are being conveyed with the property. There is +/- 20 acres of alfalfa in production that would support your horses, or give you a little income.
This getaway to paradise, located on a paved county road, has a cozy +/- 1850 sq. ft. home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, a very well built cabin, and a barn/shed for storing your 4-wheelers and other outdoor toys. The bald eagles rest in the Cottonwoods while fishing, and mallards and geese raise their young here. An occasional beaver or otter can be seen swimming in the river, with elk and deer calling the property home as well.
Recent upgrades to the cabin include new kitchen cabinets, updated appliances, new master bed, interior paint, upgraded furniture and improved internet. Similar upgrades/improvements are in the process for the small Air BnB cabin.
The Piedra River Valley is mostly national forest, but about a dozen or so families live in the valley, making for some of the best neighbors one can ask for, all attracted to the valley for the same reasons. With the lowest altitude in southern Colorado 6300 ft. between the Utah state line and I-25, you can launch your raft or kayak from the property and get picked up at Navajo Lake, a few miles downstream and 15 minutes by auto. Navajo Lake has over 22 miles of boating, fishing, hunting great waterfowling and big game that includes both New Mexico and Colorado. The Piedra Riverside also would lend well to orchards and other gardening.
Located in big game unit 75-751, the elk tags are over the counter and deer are almost 100 draw. Be it archery, muzzleloader or rifle, the property is a great hunting location for all seasons and some of the best turkey hunting in the state.
