Surround yourself with the evergreen trees, glorious mountain mountain views, and rolling hills of the Sangre De Cristo Ranches (S.D.C.R.). This beautiful lot in the foothills of the San Luis Valley of Costilla County offers monumental views of Mt Blanca to the north. What a perfect setting for the unspoiled countryside of Costilla County. With every breath of fresh, clean mountain air, you’ll know this pristine unspoiled property is for you.
The Sangre de Cristo Ranches were developed, by Malcolm Forbes (founder of Forbes magazine), in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. Mt. Blanca towers at over 14,000 feet, highlighting the views from many properties in the area. To the west, the San Luis Valley is a fertile High Plains Desert, roughly 7,500 feet above sea level. The landscape within 44,000 acre Ranches varies from sagebrush and Pinon at the lower elevations, and Aspen and various tall pine varieties above 9,000 ft. The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado.
This parcel is located in unit J-3, one of the last one platted and developed by Malcolm Forbes that sold for higher prices than some of the other units. This parcel has a mixture of pinon trees and sage brush throughout the property while sloping gently downhill toward the back of the property (where a seasonal creek may run sometimes – it didn’t appear to full at the time of the photos). Looking out the back of the parcel you will have views to Mt. Blanca and Mt. Lindsey.
Colorado is one of the fastest growing states and this property is uniquely located between the cities of Denver and Albuquerque. At this low price, this property would also be a smart long-term investment.
