Westcliffe, Colorado (Custer )
Gorgeous piece of Colorado high country with timbered forests and ridges, spectacular views, and a stunning mountain creek! Properties in this area are held by families for generations and rarely become available for sale. This property would be ideal for a get-away mountain log cabin and for seasonal recreational activities such as horse back riding, ATV use, camping, hiking and fall hunting. The property sits at the base of the San Isabel National Forest and the Sangre De Cristo Wilderness and views of the snow-capped peaks are magnificent. The land is bisected by North Brush Creek which is a clear mountain stream fed by spring snow melt. The property has a combination of ponderosa pine, spruce and aspen trees, colorful oak brush and mountain meadows. Westcliffe, Colorado is only a short 30 minute drive from the property and offers food shopping, medical services, and an airport for private planes. The property is under a conservation easement with the San Isabel Land Protection Trust insuring the protection of this property for all future generations. The conservation easement allows for a generous 5 acre building envelope which can be selected by the future owner at a location of their choosing and all normal residential, recreational and hunting uses are allowed. The current owner has invested over $100,000 to enhance the future beauty of this property through a selective timber management plan. The work included thinning dead trees to promote a healthy forest and new growth and to open up park areas along North Brush Creek. This property provides some of the finest elk habitat you will find in Colorado and the area is known for its trophy bulls. Protected brush and pine forest for bedding areas, mountain meadows for forage and water resources from North Brush Creek attract and hold big game, especially elk herds as they migrate down from the National Forest. Don't miss out on this incredible property!
