Property Summary

Just north of the New Mexico border lies a five acre oasis just ready for you to call home. This lot in the town of Sanford, in Costilla County, Colorado can be yours if you act now. Fish, hike, bike, ski, or just enjoy the beautiful mountain landscape. Set up camp (permit required) or build your dream home getaway. The sky’s the limit.

So many natural wonders await you in the beautiful part of the country. Explore wetlands, grasslands, lakes, forests, rivers, and mountains. If you’re not an active outdoor adventurer – no worries – you can appreciate all the area has to offer by simply being an observer and an appreciator of natural beauty. The Rio Grande River is the lifeblood of the area and has something to offer for anyone who wants to enjoy it including fishing, boating, conservation efforts, and more.

You’ll be in Rocky Mountain territory. The area is home to the majestic Sangre de Cristo range, including its fourth highest summit, Blanca Peak. You can also check out Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve has the tallest sand dunes in North America, where you can hike, sand board or sled, hunt, or go 4-wheeling (in marked areas).

Sanford is one of the many quaint small towns that make up Costilla County. These friendly local communities offer your basic necessities like gas stations, small markets, and mom & pop restaurants. They are also known for their local arts and crafts, like leatherwork and handmade jewelry. Nearby San Luis is in fact one of Colorado’s oldest towns.

The low-lying vegetation of the area makes it a great place to build. Choose a site built home (600 square foot minimum) or a manufactured home. While you cannot live in an RV on the property per state law, you can apply for a permit to camp for up to 60 days – with up to 3 renewals. Install septic, dig a well, (water haul or holding tank too), and consider your non-electric power options. Access this lot from Margo Avenue and get ready to embrace off the grid living.
