Description

Remember that song, "I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles....."? I wonder if it was inspired by this property - nah, but it could have been! Truly, especially on a clear sky day, it is possible to see every area mountain all the way into Utah as well as our SW CO peaks. Night skies are full of cosmic splendor without the distraction of street lights or any close neighbors. WOW! Great views day and night. This place is under construction; so let's explain what is being accomplished: a rammed earth solar-powered home with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, along with a great room living/dining/kitchen concept. The Sellers intend to complete the project but offer it as is -if that may be preferred. In the meantime, they will continue to work on this off-grid home as they wait for another who is interested in a secluded spot for independence and privacy, excavation, maybe some building or farming projects and ranching, too. At 200 acres, there is plenty of property to enjoy, but imagine adjoining thousands of acres of public land that creates a seemingly endless opportunity to explore! Canyon Of The Ancients National Monument and BLM property abut this property to the north, west, and south. Sandstone canyon runs through the property at two points, interrupted by the BLM parcel. The highest elevation of the property appears to be 6920 feet, where the home is being built and there is plenty of evidence of historic activity all over the place, with arrowheads, potsherds, and other relics being discovered by the Sellers. It is highly likely there are some ruins at least in two or three locations on the property, so this may be a perfect place for personal archaeological discoveries! The Seller thinks it may be a prime location to host digs and cooperate with area groups that lead such explorations - or perhaps biking, horse, and hiking trail rides, maybe hunting excursions for deer and elk. There are so many possibilities here!
