Colorado rural acreage in a gorgeous location.
If you’ve been looking for a beautiful building site to build your dream home in a quiet mountain town, this is a stunning lot in a quiet setting only four miles from town. This property is situated at 6,600 feet in elevation on a south-facing mesa for mild winter days and cool summer nights. The property is pinyon-juniper forest on a gentle ridge with a large open meadow, a gentle south-facing slope, and a stunning array of mountain views.
Recreation is everywhere you look!
Cedaredge, Colorado, is located on the south shoulder of the Grand Mesa, the largest flat-topped mountain in the world. The Grand Mesa tops out at 10,800 feet, and there are boundless recreational opportunities just minutes from town. Snowmobiling, skiing, canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and hunting—there are many thousands of acres of national forest lands and hundreds of lakes just minutes from Cedaredge. Powderhorn Ski Area, a nice little family ski resort, is only 32 miles away via a breath-taking drive. Cedaredge Golf Club is an 18-hole public course with greens fees as low as $21, and it’s very close to town—only minutes away from the Cactus Park building lot.
Hunting and fishing in Western Colorado.
The Cactus Park building lot is in the middle of prime hunting country, with mule deer and wild turkey commonly found on the property. (You might make the neighbors mad if you shoot them, however. Go find some nearby public land for your hunting excursions.) Elk hunting on the Grand Mesa to the north can be excellent. There are more lakes on the Grand Mesa than you can fish in one summer, the Gunnison River, a few miles to the south, is known as one of the best trout streams in the world.
Utilities installed—water and power.
Anyone who has ever built on a rural property knows it can cost many thousands of dollars to bring electricity and water lines to a building site. This property had a mobile home on it at one time, and the Upper Surface Domestic Water User’s Association water tap is installed, as well as electrical service. There is an old septic system on the property that may be usable. These utilities will save a new owner considerable funds.
A nice lifestyle property in a beautiful setting.
Cedaredge and the Surface Creek Valley is a relaxed place to live. The local area is famous for its fruit orchards and vineyards, growing apples, pears, cherries, peaches, and wine grapes. It’s known as a hidden gem of a retirement community, with a low cost of living, nice winter and summer climate, and access to local hospitals, clinics, and clubs and activities. The local schools are known for strong sports programs, top academics, lots of activities and clubs, and very little of the drugs, gangs, political correctness, and violence that permeates many larger schools.
