When people think of idyllic mountain homes, this property is what they have in mind…
Ample tree coverage, seasonal water flow, rock outcroppings, terrain sloping away from the road to reveal dramatic and breathtaking views, and (of course) mountains in every direction.
It's hard to get more “Colorado iconic” than this property at Bear Creek in South Fork Ranches. But it doesn't end with views, as impressive as they are.
This property also boasts paved road frontage, a permitted water well, underground utilities such as electric, cable internet, and phone at the lot line, and several building spots to take advantage of the mountain and river views.
Located just up the ledge from the Rio Grande, the Bear Creek subdivision is one of the most sought after gated communities in the region. With paved roads throughout, Rio Grande National Forest Access, equestrian trails, and a 20-acre private fishing area along the Rio Grande, Bear Creek brings all the best of Colorado's outdoors to your doorstep.
The Bear Creek POA maintains the roads and utilities of the subdivision, as well as the overall aesthetic of the architecture and compliance with the Covenants and Restrictions of the subdivision. Annual dues are $550 per lot. Here are the restrictions in a nutshell:
-Lots are for residential use only. Main structures must be at least 1,800 sq. ft. Guest houses must be at least 600 sq.ft.
-Camping/RVing is allowed for up to 90 days at a time.
-New construction must be approved by the architectural control committee.

The community of South Fork also provides endless opportunities for recreation, whether you're into championship golf courses or the best powder skiing in Colorado. The Rio Grande flows through South Fork, providing some of the area's best Gold Medal waters for Trout fishing. There are also over 100 miles of off-road trails for Atv's and OHVs to explore.
Or, if winter is your thing, the famous Wolf Creek Ski area is only 17 miles away, which boasts the best snow for skiing in the state.
This property is also located in GMU 79, which is known for its elk, deer, and bighorn sheep. Try your hunting skills in the nearly 1 Million acres of National Forest a short walk away.
The town of South Fork will be able to supply all your daily needs, such as grocery stores, shops, restaurants, and a nearby hospital.
If you are looking for that perfect spot to build your mountain mansion, look no further.
