Pikes Peak Ranch
Pikes Peak Ranch is truly a unique gem of gems which is really saying something when considering the area where the property is located. The ranch has views of Pikes Peak that make it feel like it's in your front yard. One can cross the catwalk to the crow’s nest balcony and sit sipping coffee as the morning sunrise sets the peak aglow as if it were aflame.
The ranch is complete with a beautiful 4,332 sq. ft. home, steel shop, stables, hay barn, riding arena, chicken coop, RV pad, kennel and run, and is fenced into pastures all on 62.75 acres and if need more acreage there is an additional 170 acres right next door that can be added. The new owners will not have to contend with any covenants or an HOA and there are no close neighbors.
The history related to the ranch is fascinating in itself and many remnants of days gone by can still be seen. The old railbed of the Midland Railroad runs through the ranch and the well where steam locomotives would sit and fill with water still sits as it did over 100 years ago. There are homestead remnants as well including a large root cellar and part of an old livestock barn. The owners took care to preserve the history and even repurposed timbers from collapsed structures. These timbers can be seen through the home in the trim work and there is even an old barn door with its original hardware.
Pikes Peak Ranch offers something for everyone. Far enough from the big city to enjoy the country life but an easy drive to Woodland Park or Colorado Springs for shopping at big box stores.
Bring your horses and animals and enjoy the ranch life!

Currently, the ranch is used as a horse property and is well set up for that purpose. However, the location, topography, and water would accommodate many uses. In fact, part of the ranch was at one time a cabbage farm.
Elk and deer hunting are good in this area and large herds of elk are regularly seen on the property.
There is no shortage of recreational activities to be enjoyed on the ranch and surrounding area. With an abundance of public land in the area, if one tires of riding or hiking the ranch there remains thousands of acres of public land to explore. There is also fishing, ATVing, skiing, gambling and much more within a short distance of the ranch.
