Exclusive Prime Location.
40 Beautiful acres in the remote mountain area of Conejos County, Colorado. Just 2 hours from Santa Fe, New Mexico… and 4 from Denver, CO, this radiant and very private terrain is large enough for agricultural usage, a vacation getaway home, cabin, cottage, and/or lodge with a substantial amount of room, if desired, for commercial intent. The vacant rural land is embedded deep within the mountains, and is accommodated by an access road from the highway for personal and construction purposes. It is fully furnished with a well and electric. Plus, it has an irrigation channel with complete water rights. This luxurious property is just walking distance from the majestic Conejos River, and 20 minutes from the historic town, Antonito.
Laying at approximately 7,888 feet in elevation, the area is rich in culture and just half a mile to the gorgeous 92 mile stretch of water known as The Conejos River. The river is a tributary of the Rio Grande River and a fly-fisherman's dream come true. Numerous fishing access points and easements along the way provide access to some of the finest trout fishing to be had in Colorado. The Conejos River Canyon is where outdoor enthusiasts can fish, hunt, hike, camp, bike-ride, and horseback. The property is just 10 miles west of the historical San Luis Valley and the small town of Platoro with its surrounding lake reservoir. Nearby to the property includes the Rio Grande National Forest, Twin Rivers, Las Mejitas, Fox Creek Ranch, and Chama, New Mexico. Also in close distance are the Sangre De Cristo and San Juan Mountains, and the Great Sand Dunes National Park, which is known as one of Colorado's most spectacular, constantly shifting, natural formations. And keep your eyes out for the Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge and the Alamosa National Wildlife Refuge where you're sure to spot many endangered birds including the Golden Eagle. It's breathtaking.
The land has been in the family for almost 50 years, and has never been touched. In a few years, you will not be able to find this land for this price. It's a warm, friendly environment with picturesque scenery. And, can provide a peaceful and exclusive getaway residence, a fishing trip campground, a permanent home, and/or 40 acres of grazing land for agricultural usage. If you feel like visiting the historic tourist spots and partaking on any of the surrounding adventures, you're only 10 to 30 miles away. Otherwise, you have the property all to yourself.
