Property Types: Ranches for Sale, Waterfront, Recreational
Unlimited opportunities await you at the exclusive Valley Springs Ranch, an oasis conveniently located only a few miles from downtown Delta, Colo. Spanning 267+/- acres of lush bottom land with rich grass for year-round grazing, this beautiful piece of river property is an open canvas for any outdoor enthusiast, whether you want to enjoy your own private hunting and fishing paradise or you have an income-producing property in mind.
The ranch is currently grazed by cattle and horses and would make an excellent horse farm or equestrian center and event venue. The wooded portion of the ranch is home to mule deer, turkeys, waterfowl and an array of other wildlife. A portion of the property once served as grounds for a fantastic duck hunting club while some of the largest mule deer in western Colorado continue to be taken along the river valleys due to having few predators and minimal hunting pressure.
Nestled near the base of the Grand Mesa, Colorado’s largest flattop mountain, the property provides a private and secluded feel yet you are only minutes away from downtown Delta, the beautiful small town of Cedaredge and the Powderhorn Mountain Resort in Mesa, a premier destination for ski enthusiasts. The region’s large year-round tourist population makes the ranch the perfect setting for any outdoor recreation business from a dude ranch to possibly a vacation rental-cabin property.
A short drive upstream sits the North Rim of the renown Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park—the deepest canyon worldwide for its narrow width— known for its Gold Medal waters. Enjoy world-class fishing for Gold Medal-class brown trout and rainbow trout along the eight-tenths of a mile of the Gunnison River that runs through the ranch or hit the extensive stretch of Tongue Creek that spans more than 1.5 miles within its boundaries. For extra fishing options, venture to one of the 300 pristine lakes surrounding the Grand Mesa.
Valley Springs Ranch is a sportsman’s paradise as several parcels have been brought back together to consolidate the entire valley into one unique property. There are two blue heron rookeries (nesting areas) onsite and numerous bird species set to provide hours of viewing enjoyment. Considering the recreational opportunities that abound, this property offers it all. The property features a 3,170-square-foot farm house, a shop and a newly-remodeled 1,149-square-foot historic guest house. An additional water tap ensures you can build your custom dream home in a setting marking an ideal destination for personal and/or corporate retreats and family getaways for generations to come. Let Valley Springs Ranch redefine what it means to have your own piece of paradise. Come take a tour of this unique property and discover all the wildness that awaits just minutes from town.
