Description

Located 15 miles from the world famous Telluride Mountain Village, this +/- 2,239 acres is a rare find these days. Beaver Mesa Livestock & Cattle Ranch is so beautiful that it was selected by renown professional photographer John Fielder for some of its most photogenic views. The ranch is very well known in Telluride (almost famous really, going back 3 generations). Also the ranch is literally across a small dirt road from thousands of acres of National Forest offering endless outdoor recreation and privacy. No neighbors! Being that the water out west is now held as the gold standard these days, there are 6 registered beautiful ponds, with the largest of them stocked. The ranch has the absolute best water rights out of the Hughes Ditch (named after the original owner) that irrigates over 1000 acres +/- of the Ranch keeping it lush and green and that is a VERY BIG deal today. Not many ranches can even compare and this ranch and is one of thefew last large family holdings remaining within 35 min of Telluride. Priced well below comparable size ranches in the area, the Cattlemens Assoc Conservation Easement is very different,the main reason for the CE was to protect the WATER RIGHTS for generations. There CAN BE development, there is also 3 separate building envelopes that would be ideal for that Yellowstone dream home & value is already factored in with +/- 200 acres of the ranch NOT enrolled. Theres also an ability to sell off (a min of 500 acres) of the ranch separately with a building envelope. The ranch has so many possibilities and again a very unique easement that was well thought through for the protection of the wildlife and the water. A conservation easement will allow you to own a much larger and much finer quality ranch for far less money and low low taxes. Improvements include a comfortable & warm +/- 1200 sqft 3/2 ranch home with big views of the Telluride mountains. The home has spring fed well (best tasting water ever) jaw dropping views from every room showcasing the ponds and the mountain peaks that surround the ranch, you could also live there while you build your dream home. A road system allows easy access throughout the ranch and is 100% fenced.There is also a 3000 foot airstrip in place, but not currently in use. Colorado's BGU 70 offers todays hunter (OTC elk tags, always check regs) and close to 100% draw for archery elk tags. Beaver Mesa has been documented as an excellent producer of both trophy quality elk and trophy mule deer. The ranch sits in the natural migratory path of where in May/June and the end of the year you can witness HUNDREDS of elk & deer crossing the ranch and stopping at one of the many ponds to drink and offering an abundance of food and excellent bedding areas in one of the many aspen groves, just about as perfect as you can get. If you have not been lucky enough to witness the annual migration of the elk & deer, it's something special to see and unforgettable. The ranch is currently leased out for hunting and a cattle lease with 50K+/- annually income (nice to have your land making money). The ranch also does also qualify for landowner mule deer tags, with monster bucks & elk documented. Blue grouse and turkey also call the ranch home. Beaver Mesa Ranch has traditionallycarried +/- 300 pair cattle for the summer, and allows an incredibly low tax bill of +/- $3100 annually. Really unheard of for a ranch as large as Beaver Mesa. Be it the land investment retreat you always dreamed of, very close to Telluride's world class skiing, dining & air access. The ranch also would make an unimaginableequestrian property, riding your horses with incredible views and endless riding. Protected land holdings with water rights like Beaver Mesa Livestock & Cattle Ranch are becoming more scarce than ever. To have this much land so close to Telluride is very rare find and for the 7.7M it is even more rare. Almost literally impossible to find. Co brokers welcome
