Here's a great opportunity to own 70 acres on Raton Mesa. This property has a little bit of everything to offer! It has great roads to access the property, power and phone run to the property line, fully treed and ready to build on! This subdivision on top of Raton Mesa is easy to access, right off of I-25 about 10 minutes from downtown Trinidad, yet it feels worlds away. In recent years this subdivision put a water and bridge assessment on every lot in this subdivision. Both of these lot's, E31 and E32 have had the $30,000 worth of water infrastructure and Bridge assessments paid off. So this means you won't have to pay tens of thousands of dollars in assessments! Many of the lots in this subdivision are encumbered by these assessments. One of the best attributes of this subdivision is that you are guaranteed fresh potable water through a Trinidad City water tap. Something that isn't easy to attain when living outside city limits. At $104,950 per lot, these lots are a bargain. Don't risk drilling a well when you can buy these lots and be guaranteed water!
Big beautiful full size Ponderosa Trees, and some good looking mature Gambel Oak highlight this property. If one cleared a few trees out, you would have unobstructed views of the Spanish Peaks, and the Sangre De Cristo Range, including Culebra Peak (14,049') from various places on E31! Both lots have nice flat building sites that could easily be built on. The HOA does a masterful job maintaining the roads, and clearing snow in the winter. I feel these two lots are two of the nicest lots in the entire subdivision.
The hunting here is excellent, with 95% of the land in the area being private. Allowing for Bulls and Bucks to get bigger every year! Unit 851 is known as one of the best trophy Elk Game Management Units in all of Colorado. Elk tags are over the counter in unit 851. Hunting is allowed on your own property in this subdivision. The Raton Mesa is the mountain range that divides Colorado and New Mexico, being on top only adds to the attractiveness of this land. Many places in Colorado that look this nice, would cost a lot more per acre! The NRA Whittington center is a short drive just down the road, outside Raton, New Mexico. Also Trinidad lake another short commute, for those who enjoy the water. If you'd like to own some beautiful land in Colorado, this is it! Please call for details.
