This parcel consists of forty walkable acres to a high western point on the property where you take in a full three hundred and sixty degree view of the mountains and valleys. The southern exporsures lead up to the build sites, providing for the use of rock formations in construction and views over southern colorado south and east. To the north, the Spanish Peaks stand above you.
There are massive sandstone boulders strewn over the southern slope leading up to sandstone overhangs, oak brush and spotty ponderosa's run between. A seasonal creek bed runs along the the extreme southern border. Ponderosa forest begin thickening as you walk up and onto the first bench. Grassy meadows patch-work in-between the trees on the eastern side. The northern slopes are covered in dark timber, with some big firs in the valley bottoms. It's also fenced.

Power and phone are an 1/8th of a mile away along the subdivision road, need about 4-5 poles, not bad. Cell works well here too. Water well depths in the this area range from 20 feet to 400. You can drill in the seasonal creek bottom or on top of the eastern grassy area.
