Land Description

BEAR BONES RANCH BEAR BONES RANCH is 105 amazing acres of healthy forest, lush grassy meadows, with wide open views to the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains and is a 21/2 hour drive to Denver and Denver International Airport (DIA). Colorado Springs is only a 11/2 hour drive for the Springs Airport (COS) and only 45 minutes from Pueblo where Great Lakes Airline operates. Secluded from the hustle of city life and established within the Wet Mountains, BEAR BONES RANCH controls a lease on close to 640 acres of State Land, providing an exorbitant amount of gorgeous, mountain terrain to pore over. The Sangre de Cristo Mountains offer 52 high-mountain lakes for pristine fly-fishing and the mountains enjoy an excellent trail system for hiking and horseback riding. The Ranch-House is beautiful with southwest styling inside and out, 3 beautiful bedrooms, 3 baths, a secretive sun room with a platform hot tub, and many niched seating/reading areas. The fireplace is arched stucco with a wood stove insert and a thick wood-and-dowel mantel wraps around a corner and becomes the top of a built-in bookshelf. Home is two stories with stucco exterior and a metal roof that mimics ceramic-stacked tile. Kitchen is large, filled with windows and open to the dining area. The floors throughout the home are Mexican Saltillo tile and the ceilings are filled with many surprises.  There are many other curiosities too numerous to mention, that if told would thwart the joy of their discovery. Come and see for yourself all the unique details that add to this home’s warmth and charm. The Foreman’s ranch-house is wood frame and cedar lap-sided, contemporary in its styling, single-level and has loads of windows and a metal roof. The home’s two bedrooms are large and there are one and a half baths, a family room, living room, kitchen, dining room, large sun room with hot tub, and an entryway solarium, plus an oversized 1-car attached garage. The home is 3,368 total square feet of which 2,052 square feet are heated. Both homes have stunning Sangre de Christo mountain views. The Ranch includes a separate, smaller finished bunkhouse and a 3,120 sq. ft. barn. The barn has four stalls and an upper story for hay-storage, a crushed-rock center-aisle, tack room and workshop. Construction is wood frame with metal siding and metal roof. Water and electricity are available in the barn. An outdoor riding or roping arena with cattle chutes is also included. The Ranch’s deeded acreage consists of three 35 acre parcels totaling 105 acres. The deeded acreage is contiguous to owner-leased State Land acreage that consists of roughly 640 acres. The two homes are on individual 35-acre parcels, leaving one 35-acre parcel unimproved but for the outdoor roping/riding/training arena . This land allows you miles and miles of uninterrupted horseback riding and exploring.  BEAR BONES RANCH is beautiful land forested with Aspen, Pinon and Ponderosa, has lush pastures and meadows filled with wildflowers and wildlife. The artesian Bear Creek is on the land along with a year round spring, making the lower pasture semi-sub-irrigated. Water is supplied by two permitted wells, the large spring and the seasonal creek. The property is fenced and cross-fenced for livestock rotation. Monarch Ski Resort is approximately two hours drive to the west and there is awesome, white-water rafting on the Arkansas River in the Big Horn Sheep Canyon, only 30 minutes to the north. From Westcliffe, Colorado, BEAR BONES RANCH is east 11 miles on Highway 96, then north, three miles on County Road 271. Listed By: Twila Geroux
