Your opportunity to own a prime Colorado ranch property that is reminiscent of a bygone western era. Historically, the property has been used for family cattle ranching, however, the land sets up well for a small horse ranch, hobby ranch, recreation or retirement. There are many nice building sites to choose from as the land is a combination of rolling hills, meadows, canyons, cliffs and dry creek beds. The land has perimeter fencing on most sides, and a portion of the fencing is new. The property has no covenants or HOA, so many uses are possible including camping, hiking, hunting, shooting, ATV use, or horseback riding. The land fronts along Beaver Creek Road and is minutes away from the Beaver Creek State Wildlife Area which offers big game and turkey hunting, trout stream fishing, and miles of hiking trails. The land adjoins BLM on two sides with towering red rock cliffs and outcroppings. Tree cover is a combination of cedar, pinon, and gambel oak with lovely native grass areas throughout the property. Seasonal creek beds, arroyos, and catch ponds hold water for livestock and game. This property could easily be subdivided by a new owner if desired and the property has a recent perimeter survey.
The property is only a 20 minute drive to Canon City amenities – restaurants, shopping, movies, medical care. The area also offers exceptional recreational opportunities including world class fly-fishing or white water rafting on the Arkansas River, zip lines, bungee jumps and train rides at the Royal Gorge. Take a day trip to Florence, Colorado to enjoy antique shopping which is only 15 minutes away or into Colorado Springs or Pueblo, both under 1 hour from the property. The property is located in Game Management Unit 59 and boasts excellent hunting prospects, especially, with 1,000’s of acres of adjoining BLM land.
Buyer is entitled to drill a domestic well on the property which allows for in-house use, watering of livestock and irrigation of up to 1 acre of land. There is no well on the property but successful water wells have been drilled nearby.
