COLORADO – Alamosa River Estates Vacant Lots

Alamosa River Estates Vacant Lots

These beautiful, versatile, and well-priced recreational view lots are located in Southern Colorado, near the Town of LaJara and City of Alamosa.  Build a seasonal cabin, pull your RV onto the lot, or just camp.  Then walk over to the robust Alamosa River, dip your line, and maybe reel in a nice rainbow trout.

One acre M/L, in two flat building lots that could be used separately, on County maintained road in Alamosa River Estates.  Power and phone one lot away, and can be easily and directly extended to your lots at nominal cost.

Several historic ranch buildings in the vicinity add interest and western ambiance.

Walk to Alamosa River for fishing, wildlife viewing and aesthetic enjoyment.  Close to La Jara and Alamosa for shopping and urban amenities.  Easy paved road access to within 3 miles of the lots and maintained dirt roads the rest of the way.  Beautiful mountain and prairie views.  Quiet secluded lifestyle but close enough to urban amenities.

$11,500 asking price.  Terms available at asking price with 20% down, 8% interest, 2-3 years.

Directions to Alamosa River Estates

From Alamosa:

  • Go south on paved US 285 for about 14 miles
  • Turn right (west) on paved Road 15, just north of LaJara, go about 10 miles
  • Turn right (north) on paved Road 6, go about 3 miles (pavement ends about halfway)
  • Turn left (west) on dirt Road AA, go about 1 mile
  • Look for dirt road on left, with red boxcar at the corner, and Alamosa River Estates sign.  Go down that road about 500 feet, and the two lots are on the right (look for stakes and flags) across from an old ranch house and shed (which is on the left).

Alamosa River Estates Comparative Vacant Lots

The area’s original developer is offering smaller riverfront (quarter (0.25) acre) lots for $18,000 apiece; see them here.

Please note, unlike our large one-acre parcel located on a graded public road, with utilities adjacent, and no flooding concerns, their lots:

  • May be located in the floodway and/or floodplain, and may have land use, development, wastewater, well, or other environmental prohibitions or restrictions
  • May not have reasonable access to power or phone.  True straightline distances for power/phone extensions may render utility installation unaffordable
  • May not be on existing or maintained public roads, making access difficult and requiring major road grading and construction expenses

We believe that our lots are a smarter and more practical investment.  You can readily build a home or install a gravel  parking pad pull-through for your RV.  Drill a well (100 foot depths are possible), and install a septic system (soils appear to be well-drained), and you’ll have an economical family vacation retreat in a beautiful mountain area, with unlimited fishing river access and hiking nearby.
