We are excited to showcase this amazing 5 acre fully treed property.
This one is a drive up into the woods of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The property is a U shape around the road and is slope up from the road, but there is an area to the South that is more level you could put a driveway up for an off the grid hunting or a peaceful escape cabin Tons of big trees and wildlife up here and gorgeous views the higher you go up the property. Great access during the dry months, but access during the winter months will be limited due to snow.

Info on the Subdivision: The Sangre de Cristo Ranches were developed, by Malcolm Forbes (founder of Forbes magazine), in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. Mt. Blanca towers at over 14,000 feet, highlighting the views from many properties in the area. To the west, the San Luis Valley is a fertile High Plains Desert, roughly 7,500 feet above sea level. The landscape within 44,000-Acre Ranches varies from sagebrush and Pinon at the lower elevations, and Aspen and various tall pine varieties above 9,000 ft. The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado.
The property is near the over 5,000 acres of greenbelt that were set aside for hunting and recreation exclusively for landowners in this area. Like to fish also? There is also great fishing and boating in the nearby Mountain Home Reservoir and Smith Reservoir.
