Activities & Amenities
This amazing 290-acre working cattle and hay ranch with beautiful views on the west end of Montrose County just outside Nucla, Colo., has it all. Cornering to BLM land, it features multiple ponds and offers 210 acres under irrigation with $250,000 in new side-roll irrigation sprinklers currently being added through a government program. Another 40 acres can be put under irrigation with the remainder showcasing beautiful canyon land that holds an abundance of wildlife and wild game. With 110 shares of CC ditchwater and over a foot of additional water that has been filed on this ranch, it truly has all the water it needs. The water rights alone make this an extremely valuable property.
Included are 2 large homes, a smaller double-wide that needs some work and a large metal building that serves as a machine shop. The ranch can carry a 100 cow-calf pairs year round and still leave you with hay to sell. A large investment has been made in underground piping to run the extensive side-roll and big-gun irrigation sprinklers. Showcasing incredible views in all directions, the ranch has the majestic San Juan Mountains and Lone
Cone Peak to the south, the Lasalle Mountains of Utah to the west and the Uncompahgre Plateau to the east.
The ranch qualifies for coveted Colorado Game Management Unit (GMU) 61 vouchers. As one of the most sought after buck and bull units in the state, it takes a non-resident more than 20 years just to draw a single GMU 61 elk tag. With the Colorado voucher system, you potentially may be allotted a private-land-only tag every year or a coveted unit-wide tag every other year—tags that are extremely valuable on the open market. The very popular rimrock trail that runs from Montrose, Colo., to Moab, Utah, runs right through the ranch, making it perfect for a potential Air-BNB income source. With close proximity to Colorado GMU 70, you still have access to thousands of acres of public land with exceptional hunting for the years you do not draw a voucher.
