Property Summary

If you’ve ever dreamed of building a homestead to your own specifications with room for a small farm and access to some of Colorado’s greatest outdoor attractions, look no further.

While you are enjoying the quiet solitude of ranch living, don’t worry about access to the basic necessities of life. The Red Rock General Store in Blanca is only 5 minutes away. If you need more, drive 12 minutes to the Fort Market in Fort Garland. Because of your proximity to Hwy 160, everything is easy to get to!
