This property is one of only two lots that are located at the south end of the Plaza. The Plaza it's self is open community property located at the center of the southwestern neighborhood. You will enjoy the charm of the Plaza fountain and the grand views of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range! Westcliffe and Silver Cliff are located in the Wet Mountain Valley, Custer County, at approximately 8000 feet. The two towns are bordered on the west by the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains that ascend to 14,000 feet on some peaks, and the rolling Wet Mountains to the east. The Collegiate Peaks can be seen in the north along with Pikes Peak, and the Spanish Peaks can be seen to the south. The Wet Mountain Valley is famous for its unparalleled views, rural-ranching lifestyle, and endless miles of wilderness hiking trails through high-mountain meadows bursting with wildflowers and over 40 high-mountain lakes for fly-fishing. The Ute Indians were attracted to the Wet Mountain Valley by the plentiful water and abundant game. In the mid 1500’s Spanish explorers entered the western edge of Custer County in search of gold, silver and the fountain of youth. Over three hundred years later Europeans finally found the precious metals they sought, however, we are still looking for the fountain of youth. Located approximately 75 miles from Colorado Springs and only minutes from the quaint town of Westcliffe, you'll enjoy wildlife-viewing or big game hunting in this undiscovered mountain valley, boating or fishing at Lake DeWeese or first-class fly-fishing and rafting in the Arkansas River, just 30 minutes away. Skiing at Monarch Ski Area is only 90 minutes away. For hikers or backpackers, the Rainbow Trail (which runs from Salida to Westcliffe for 100 miles along the eastern edge of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains), can be accessed just west of town.
