This is a unique one in the SDCR mountains of Costilla, Colorado. It is at a lower elevation so accessibility is good, yet it has many of the tall pine trees that are usually found at the higher elevations in these mountains so you are getting the best of both worlds with this property. These pictures (taken on the actual property, speak for themselves…..).

The Sangre de Cristo Ranches were developed, by Malcolm Forbes (founder of Forbes magazine), in the heart of the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range. Mt. Blanca towers at over 14,000 feet, highlighting the views from many properties in the area. To the west, the San Luis Valley is a fertile High Plains Desert, roughly 7,500 feet above sea level. The landscape within 44,000-acre Ranches varies from sagebrush and Pinon at the lower elevations, and Aspen and various tall pine varieties above 9,000 ft. The Ranches are located about 5 miles to the south and east of Fort Garland, Colorado.

Located in Southern Colorado within the Sangre de Cristo Ranches community, this property offers the off-the-grid privacy with the convenience of being not too far from the cities of Fort Garland and San Luis for all of the essentials.

I offer easy owner-financing, so you can make this property your own today.
