The Ververs Ranch.
An historic, all grass, cow/calf or yearling ranch with top notch development potential. The Ververs Ranch is located just a few miles east of Colorado Springs along Colorado State Highway 94. The ranch is 6,827 total acres and all grass, including 5,387 contiguous deeded acres and 1,440 acres of state lease ground with a new 10 year contract. The ranch should carry 300 pairs or 600 yearlings for the growing season. With 3 1/2 miles of State Highway 94 frontage and 3 miles of Peyton Highway frontage, the ranch highly coveted for development. In place are development entitlements on 1,200 plus acres of the ranch that include PID Planned Industrial zoning, PBP Planned Business Park zoning, RR2 Rural Residential 2 1/2 acre zoning with sketch plans filed. The ranch surrounds Schriever Air Force Base on 3 sides. There is plenty of state lease ground to "cheapen" the grazing up while the property is developed out, if a buyer desires. There are numerous wildlife species found on the ranch, including pronghorn antelope, deer, and coyotes and other varmints. Currently the ranch is set up perfectly and efficiently for cattle grazing and is fenced and cross-fenced into numerous pastures. The ranch is very efficiently watered with 3 wells, runoff dams and an extensive pipeline system with stock tanks and shutoff valves. Additionally, a seasonal tributary of the Upper Black Squirrel Creek runs through the ranch carrying runoff and some live pools. There is an extensive set of improvements, including an older 2 story home, shop/machine shed with a bathroom, hay sheds, quanset, cattle barns and loafing sheds, pipe corrals and feedbunks and working facilities, cattle scales, grain bins, and many other small storage type buildings. Access to all parts of the ranch Is excellent. There is excellent views of Pikes Peak and the front range from nearly every spot on the ranch. The terrain is rolling hills to gently sloping to level. The Colorado Springs metropolitan area has an estimated 700,000 people and is home to several military installations including the United States Air Force Academy, Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base and NORAD. The area is also home to the United States Olympic Training Center. Colorado Springs is the gateway to the Central Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak shadows the city to the west. This is a highly desirable offering for the buyer with the vision to the future.
