Property Summary

Nestled beneath blue skies and 14,000+ ft mountain peaks, the San Luis Valley is surrounded by the beauty, wonder, recreation and wildlife, which made the Rocky Mountains famous.

This is a great price for a homesite/recreational parcel. Easy access from Blanca & Alamosa, Hwy 160 and/or San Luis, Hwy 159. The property is South of Hwy 160 (approx. 10 miles), with a great view of Mt. Blanca. The towns of Blanca & Alamosa are about 20-30 minutes away. Close enough to Smith Reservoir & for great FISHING! Hiking, camping or a quick run to Taos, New Mexico. Just a short drive away for skiing and the ART scene. Beautiful views of Mount Blanca and beyond. Easy access to major highways via CR 12 and CR X.

This property is marked off by 4 red corner stakes. The stake locations and GPS corner coordinates are identical. While Google Earth & the Costilla County GIS show a road to this property it seems to have been overgrown, as so frequently happens in this area. There is no sign of this road. The closest road is then about 500 feet to the North of the property. To access the property you must cross the partially downed remains of two barbed wire fences that sit to the north. The terrain overall fairly passable. The property sits on a gentle southern facing slope.

The property has no utilities on site. The average well depth in the San Luis Valley Ranches ranges from 100-200 feet, drilling can cost in the range $35-45 per foot. A money saving option: to start out, or if you’re just using your land for vacation, you can haul your own water. You can fill a 500 gallon tank at the Alamosa Water Dept. for a few dollars. Septic systems can cost $3,000-4,000 on average.

The nearest power poles are to the homestead directly to the west of the property. Those power poles are about 500-1000 ft from the western boundary. The San Luis Valley has the strongest solar power resources in the state, the highest per capita concentration of home-based solar energy systems in the United States. The cost of solar system kits start at around $1000.

Propane is often used for cooking, refrigerator and heat. Propane is delivered throughout the valley. Most people also use wood stoves for heating. Abundant cheap firewood is available in the local forest.

  • All 4 corners are marked with red stakes (see photos below)
  • No road to property, closest road is about 500ft to the North
  • Trinchera Creek is just to the south of the property (500ft)
  • Nicely situated south of HWY 160 about between Alamosa & Blanca
