Property Summary

This awesome property is located 5 miles south of Smith Reservoir, one of the major fishing lakes in the area. The little town of Blanca is 10 miles from the property and Alamosa, with its major shopping facilities, is  only 28 miles away. This land was platted and surveyed in the early 1970’s and wide open spaces are still available. There are no neighbors immediately nearby, but there are some structures visible from the property. There would still be plenty of  privacy and seclusion. The area is surrounded by mountains and five 14,000 footers are nearby.

The property can accessed via dirt road. The dirt roads are passable but 4WD could be recommended for certain locations. Four structures visible from the lot. The lot is sloping with cactus and lots of large basalt rock above ground and partially buried. Evidence of prairie dogs and roaming cattle.
