Sangre De Cristo Ranches Fort Garland Recreation Building Lot

Colorado Sangre de Cristo Ranches building lot (formerly known by some as Forbes Ranches) Unit H-2, Blk 217, Lot 4561, 5.317 Acres, is located in  the northern part of the development, on Perugia Road.  Driving directions to the lot are provided below.  The roads are open (not gated), so feel free to visit and view the lot at your leisure.  The lot is about 600 feet down Perugia on the right (in the straight part, after the road curves right and before it curves back left).  Front property corners have been located, and are marked with green metal highway fence posts and survey ribbon.

This is a great opportunity to own property in scenic Costilla County in Southern Colorado. You will have breathtaking views in every direction.  This is one of the most beautiful and spectacular areas of the state, with huge intact natural areas and very few people!   Build your dream solar home, cabin, yurt, or set up an RV or tent.  Enjoy hunting, hiking, natural beauty, and the quiet solitude.

The lot is accessible off Colorado Highway 160 at the Forbes Park entrance to Beekman Road, east of Fort Garland.  Good graded and maintained dirt roads lead to this beautiful lot.

The lot has a marvelous view of Blanca Peak, with “many layers” of mountains and hills visible in all directions.  There is one neighbor with a small cabin, 2 lots north of this lot, and a few other seasonal homes visible about a mile from the lot.

The lot dimensions are approximately 350 feet on the front and back, and 750 feet on each side, totaling a bit over 5 acres, more or less rectangular in shape.  The lot slopes gently down from the road frontage to the middle of the lot,  and then back uphill toward the back.  There is deep ravine at the very back, with many ponderosa pine and fir trees.  The lot itself has dense shrub and wildflower coverage, many pinion pine and juniper trees, and a few ponderosa pine trees.

It would be easy to grade a RV or cabin site off Perugia Road, and use the lot for seasonal or weekend recreation.   Note, there are no utilities (water or power), but solar would work well, or bring a generator.  A water well is feasible, or haul water.  Most cell phone services work, but this being a remote area, cell coverage is not guaranteed.

Price: $8,000 cash, or $12,000 on owner carry, terms $2000 down, $10,000 financed for 3 years at 7%, monthly payment about $309.  Owners will provide special warranty deed when payments are completed.  Buyer may also choose to close purchase and transfer ownership through a title and escrow company, at buyer’s expense.

Directions: From Fort Garland, travel east (toward Pueblo) approximately 7 miles on Highway 160.  Turn right at the Forbes Park Subdivision entrance, make a right onto Beekman Road, take the 3rd left onto Marraine Road, take the 4th right onto Clausen Rd, and the 1st right onto Perugia Rd (roads are signed and marked). The lot is located about 600 feet down, on the right.
