This is one of the nicest properties that I’ve ever offered for sale. I will likely never get another of these…. When my photographer sent me these photos in the mountains of the SDCR in Colorado, he sent a message to me saying that it is a gorgeous property. The sweet spot of the Sangre de Cristo Ranges.
What a spot for camping, hunting, living or recreation!! This one is a rare find!

The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado.
