Mountainous terrain with great building sites for views of the entire Sangre Range and Spanish Peaks. 360 degree views from mesa top with tall pines. Great Southern exposure across the 40 acres, taking in 300 plus days of sunshine a year, with winter temps averaging 50 degrees.
Tall pines accent the mesa tops and deeper boulder lined valleys. Large sandstone rock formations and boulders are strewn throughout. The mesa drops off either side down gaping canyons lined with pinion pine, ponderosa pine, and juniper pine. The main bench off the West side of the road drops down to successively smaller benches into the canyons below. Tall ponderosa pine grow in the valleys and on the benches. The main bench is gentle in terrian and faces SW, taking in the full Sangre De Cristo mountain range, tops of the Spanish Peaks, and back into New Mexico's Wheeler Peak.
There are no covenants attached to this land. There is a gas well on the far northern boundary of the northern 40 acres. The access road to the land is an easement for the gas company to monitor their wells. A truck a day is better than many in most subdivision ranches where there are more collective owners. The access road travels through the land, giving you access to all of your land from south to north. Good gravel, southern road exposure, elevation, and year round maintenance by the gas company provides year round access.
There is no phone available. Cell is excellent from the mesa. Power is about a half mile from the southern boundary back down the access road. The owner would like to discuss a cost share to bring power up to the mesa. He owns the 40 acres to the South.
The owner's South 40, bordering on the south end of this 40 acres is available only as a group purchase. The owner is offering both 40's for 94,500 Please see listing number 169 under Mountain Land or View Propeties on our site for more video, pics, and maps.
The land sits 3.0 miles off of pavement and about 5 miles from Weston, CO, on Colorado State Hwy 12. The closest neighbors are about a mile away as the crow flies. Very private and very beautiful!
