We have a perfect 5-acre property nestled up against the west side of the Sangre de Cristo Range with northward views of Mt. Blanca and the SdC Range as it curls around to the east and away south. You can also catch the Rockies off to the west and you are literally surrounded by mountain views. You will regularly catch the alpenglow as it radiates off of the highest peak on Mt. Blanca Peak, the highest of the Range at 14,345 feet as well as the other 14’ers surrounding.
You are also less than a mile from great fishing on the Mountain Home Reservoir, in the midst of world-class big game hunting and central to some of the best outdoor activities in the country. I was recently out on the property and saw multiple deer tracks and scat around. There are a wide variety of places sparsely located throughout the master-planned community of the Sangre de Cristo Ranches. Large, off-grid homes, smaller cottages and even a container or two. The options here are pretty diverse. You’ll feel the remoteness with the majestic views; yet you can find neighbors and get to Fort Garland in a matter of minutes for supplies and company. Alamosa is just a bit down the road to the west for a larger, small-town experience.
This 5-acre parcel is zoned residential, so you can build if you want to or leave it unspoiled and enjoy as it is. This development was created in 1969 by Malcolm Forbes which you can read more about in this power-packed article. It also has references and contact info for Planning & Zoning as well as info on utilities for further research and info.
