Situated in south-central Colorado, not far from the New Mexico border, you are offered a rare opportunity to own a Heritage Quality one-of-a-kind 128+/- acre Farm/Ranch in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, the world’s highest Alpine Valley.
This property is well watered, with Colorado’s #1 Senior Water Rights off of the San Luis People’s Ditch, 97 shares total, and is a gravity-fed irrigation system ("acequias")in one of the oldest communities in Colorado. Serving the village of San Luis de la Culebra before Colorado was a Territory. These water rights are the first and most senior water rights to be given in the entire state of Colorado! Each share is one CFS.....and dated April 10, 1852. The pioneer settlers of Colorado originally dug the Peoples ditch. A lot of Colorado's greatness and beauty was built upon irrigation!
The Culebra River runs through the south end of the property which offers a great for good Brown fishing. The river and this property are both pretty and functional! The mountains in the distance are beautiful! I recommend seeing the sunrise over the mountains from the ranch. Outstanding views in all directions!
This property includes about 40 acres of grass/alfalfa for harvesting, green sub-irrigated meadows to the south that can handle about 50+ head of mother cows, and a few acres of dry grazing land which can be converted to grass/alfalfa hay meadows as there is plenty of water for irrigation! This property is 100% usable. All but 2.5 acres of property, where the building improvements are located, can be under grass/alfalfa!
Owners of this property will have access rights to the Cielo Vista/Taylor mountain area which consists of about a 2000 acre working ranch for timber/lumber, firewood gathering, and livestock grazing benefits.
