I really like this one, great views of all the good southern valley topography.    It is right off HWY142  and has an access road cut.  It’s level at the front with low vegetation and has a rolling hill at the back that stops at Margo Ave.  Power runs along the highway so it should be pretty easy to access.  Cell reception is good here as well.

Rio Grande Ranchos is within short driving distance to the famous Rio Grande River with mountain views in most directions.  Come and explore the river and enjoy fabulous fishing.  This has some of the best waterfowl hunting in Southern Colorado! This property sits in the Rio Grande Ranchos subdivision of Costilla County, Colorado.  The Eastdale Reservoir sits just 14 miles to the west of your property. San Luis (supplies and some restaurants and gas), the oldest town in Colorado is 15 miles to the west, and Alamosa (has a Wal-Mart, etc) is about 37 miles East.

The diverse geologic and geographic features of Costilla County offer beautiful landscapes, rugged mountains, majestic forests, and endless blue sky. It is home to many wildlife such as deer, elk, antelope, coyotes, and bears. It is also known as an excellent place for fishing and boating. It has three reservoirs: Eastdale Reservoir, Sanchez Reservoir, and Smith Reservoir; where you may catch walleye, pike, and several species of trout, bass, and other types of fish. Costilla County is located only an hour away from many famous natural wonders of Colorado: Great Sand Dunes National Park – the highest inland dunes in North America, Zapata Falls that offers panoramic views along the trails.

If you are looking for a beautifully scenic Colorado property with road frontage, great wildlife, and million-dollar views, this is the property for you.

The property is located at about 7,700 above sea level, and experiences 300 days or more of sunshine per year making it perfect for SOLAR! Housing options include traditional houses, cabins, and mobile homes. If you are into Tiny Houses, homes as small as 600 sq. ft. are permitted.

Fort Garland is also in the area. Fort Garland is referred to as the “Gateway to the San Luis Valley“, as it is the first town one encounters when traveling west having crossed over La Veta Pass in the Sangre de Cristo Range. Fort Garland is home to many artists, painters, crafters, and internationally known musicians.

Fort Garland has a business district with two motels, several restaurants, the Old Fort Market grocery store, the Fort Garland Museum, two gas stations, two recreational marijuana shops, a car wash, hair salon, campgrounds, hardware store, liquor store, and multiple shops featuring collectibles and antiquities as well as a Wild West show.

The Annual Fort Garland Band Jam Music Festival features local and regional musicians, as well as nationally and internationally recognized musical talent. This summer event, usually held in mid-July, includes an open-air market, local food vendors offering up traditional and regional cuisine, a beer garden, and children’s activities. The music offered covers numerous styles, from traditional Spanish guitar to R&B to rock and roll.
