This 40-acre rectangular piece of land offers great mountain views in all directions! The closest mountains are the San Juans, which form the southern part of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains and are thought by some to have the best, most varied scenery of all. The foothills begin about 5 miles to the west and it is another 8 or 10 miles to the higher country. This undeveloped agricultural piece of land is rather flat, rolling prairie, covered with grass and brush.
This land has an elevation of about 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 a metal cap that has numbers on it to correspond with the numbers on the survey map that the buyer will receive. If you love gorgeous views of mountains and want a good size lot, yet you want year around accessibility, this may be the property for you!
Valdez Ranch is located about 23 miles southwest of Alamosa and 20 miles south of Monte Vista. From Monte Vista, CO, take Highway 15 (known as Gun Barrell Road to the locals) about 17 miles South. Turn right on County Road BB. Go 1 mile and turn right. Go another mile and you will be at the SE corner of the property.
