Property Summary

Are you up for the challenge of bringing this beautiful Colorado property back to life? Bring your tools, dreams of adventure and turn this place around. A little work will pay you dividends to your future on this property.

This property already has a nice driveway in place making for easy access from Florissant Rd. on the eastern edge of the property. The rest of the property needs a little love from the new owner. You have some great materials and whatnot to start with. The fence has many solid posts in place but could use repair as well.

Do you see yourself as an adventurer? Recreation abounds in this gorgeous high-altitude valley. The Alamosa Wildlife Refuge, various reservoirs, the Great Sand Dunes, San Isabel National Forest and so many other public land resources within easy distances from this property. Imagine camping, using your ATV or building a cabin on your beautiful land. Think of the memories you will have of hiking Mt. Blanca, Zapata Falls and the national parks. You also have some excellent hunting and fishing in the area.

You can live off-the-grid, just remember full-time living requires a septic system and water source. It’s really a delightful and quiet place to get away from it all, imagine decompressing as you drive to your own private getaway in southern Colorado. If you need to go into town, Alamosa is just 16 miles and it’s about 29 miles to San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado. You are close to Smith Reservoir, for fishing and other water recreational activities! All while being just a short 4 mile drive to paved Hwy 160. From there you can expand your adventures by heading west into Alamosa or traveling south to Taos, New Mexico.

  • Driveway exists all the way to the rear of the property
  • Remnants of a shed and fence are on the property along with an old camper (see photos)
  • Beautiful mountains in every direction!
  • Just 16 miles West to Alamosa, CO (Walmart, Home Depot, etc.)
