Activities & Amenities
This fully outfitted 8.52-acre horse property is located just 1 mile west of Avondale and only 12 miles east of I-25, in Pueblo County’s tranquil farm country. Zoned A-2 and divided into two adjoining parcels, the property features a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home; 7-stall barn with numerous equestrian amenities; detached guest quarters; arena and warm-up area; ample trailer parking; productive pasture/hay ground; and abundant water, including city water (St Charles Mesa), a 12-15 gpm adjudicated domestic well, and water rights (8.5 shares Bessemmer Irrigation on 20-year lease with 10-year extension). The property is not part of an association; there are no covenants.
Surrounded by an immaculate yard with in-ground sprinklers, the home has central a/c, a wood fireplace, a large master suite, and spacious decks on the north and south sides. Both decks will be re-sanded and re-painted for the benefit of a buyer.
The detached guest quarters come complete with a kitchenette, bathroom, bedroom, living room, a/c and an antique coal-fueled stove.
Rich in character, the 7-stall horse barn includes oversized foaling stalls (approx 16x18); a large loft with space for 400 bales of hay; a secure interior tack room; and a shop with workbenches and shelving. The barn has power and lights, equipped with a timer. Exterior lights illuminate the barnyard, arena, warm-up area, and the large gravel parking area, which is sizable enough to host horsemanship clinics and other riding events. The property has a closed-circuit camera system for security, or for use monitoring foaling mares. The property comes with a large inventory of steel panels; large runs can be placed in front of each stall.
The outdoor arena measures approx 100x300; an additional warm-up area is approx 80x100; both are fenced with steel panels. The pasture/hay field has produced 2 cuttings (up to 275 bales) per year. A 2.5-acre strip along the property’s east side is leased to a neighbor, generating income; that relationship could continue with a new owner, or the ground could be repurposed for additional pasture/hay production.
This property fronts two paved roads: the US 50 business route on the north, and Wheeler Lane on the west. The Arkansas River is just 1/2 mile straight north. Across the road is a professional equestrian facility that hosts frequent events and offers even more riding opportunities.
Irrigation ditches serving the property are cement-lined; historically, irrigation water has been available 4-5x/year.
The 500-gallon propane tank is owned, not leased, and is included in the sale; natural gas service is also available.
