Stand on this piece of land and look in any direction; just about all that you can see in the distance will be mountains! The great Rocky Mountains surround the large valley of southern Colorado, where this land is located. The very closest mountains, the San Juans, begin about ten miles to the west; other mountains are farther. The land is located in the midst of many places to fish, hunt, hike, and enjoy many other outdoor activities.
The 40-acre piece of land is about 6 miles west of Alamosa, the largest town in the San Luis Valley of southern Colorado. It is flat, rolling prairie, covered with grass and brush. In the summer it is blanketed with sunflowers, and in the fall the sagebrush blooms in bright yellow as the little purple daisy-like flowers bloom.
This land has an elevation of 7,500 feet, which is about “a mile and a half high in the Colorado sky.” It fronts on a good hard-packed, dirt and gravel road, which is county maintained; so the land has year around access. It is easy to locate the exact piece of property because each corner has a survey marker – a metal stake topped with metal cap that has numbers on it that correspond to the numbers on the survey map that the buyer will receive.
The land is 660 feet by 2,630 feet. An electric line runs along the west side of the property. Underground water is available and a well permit can be obtained for this property. Septic systems are permitted. Cellular signals are also very good in this area.
If you like country living but want to be near a large town for good shopping and medical facilities and even a four year college, then this property may be just for you!
