Located in the heart of the South San Juan Wilderness and originally part of the TA Spanish Land Grant, this pristine property lies near the infamous 58,000 acre Banded Peak Ranch, said to be won in a poker game at the turn of the century.
Located between Pagosa Springs, CO and Chama, NM right on the Continental Divide, this location is amidst large ranches and is well known for its large elk herds. Secluded alpine setting makes you feel part of the old west yet you are in close proximity to both Santa Fe, NM and Durango, CO as major attraction towns. Kit Carson lived on the original part of this ranch!
This property has it all! Aspen Groves, springs, ponds, seasonal creeks and deep forests compliment the lush meadows. Adjacent to ten 105 acre parcel tracts with all utilities but not a part of the HOA (all the benefits but no restrictions). Adjacent to over 2600 acres unspoiled wilderness property (currently undeveloped).
27 miles to Pagosa Springs, CO with the famous Hot Springs, private airport & more! 87 miles to Durango, CO; 30 miles to Chama, NM with the Cumbres Toltec Railroad and 2.5 hours to Taos, NM and 3 hours to Santa Fe, NM. Spectacular views of the Banded Peaks and Navajo Peak.
