For Sale: Five Acres Of Flat, Open Land In Colorado's Most Beautiful Area!
Costilla County was Colorado's first colonized area and has a rich history dating all the way back to the 1500's. It's made up of two incorporated towns and a few smaller communities, and an abundance of flat open land and stunning mountain ranges. It's in this are you'll find this one-acre lot for sale.
About The Lot
This one-acre lot is, for the most part, very open and very flat. The terrain is made of rocky earth with very little change in elevation. There are pockets of bushes throughout the property, but no tall trees to obstruct your view of the mountains, including the impressive Mt. Blanca. There is a gradual slope from the road into the property, but it levels off pretty quickly. There are a handful of neighbors within a five-mile radius of the property, but it is flat open land on every side for as far as the eye can see. There are some areas with medium size rocks, and there is a primitive dirt drive leading right up to the property line.
The Natural Beauty Of Costilla County
This five-acre lot is perfect for someone looking to invest in rural property with breathtaking views of the mountains. If it's peace and quiet you are after, you'll find it here. Mt. Blanca is just twenty minutes north and is a favorite place for challenging hikes and incredible views of Colorado. There are five lakes in the Costilla County area, with Winchell Lakes being the closest and arguably one of the prettiest. There are also ample campgrounds nearby, ideal for both primitive camping and RV hookups. Colorado is known for its gorgeous waterfalls, and you can find some of the best can be found within an hour of the property, including Zapata Falls, Apache Falls, and Venable Falls. The Rio Grande National Forest is less than two hours away, and the Carson National Forest is just a little over two hours away.
Connecting With The Costilla County Community
This lot is definitely rural, but not too far off from local conveniences like general stores and restaurants. The town of Blanca is where you can find supermarkets, restaurants, coffee shops, pharmacies, and retail stores. You'll also find cafes and locally owned restaurants here, as well as public schools, gas stations, and medical offices. You have to head a little farther to get to big box stores like Target and Walmart, but many locals find that they can get everything they need in the neighboring towns. This property is 40 minutes from the Colorado/New Mexico border, and you can be in Denver in less than four hours. During the winter, locals head to many of the nearby mountains for winter sports, and as temps rise in the summer, there are community events in nearby towns to bring neighbors together.
If five acre of flat land with incredible mountain views sounds like the ideal spot on which to build your next adventure, don't let this lot go! Rural enough for ultimate privacy but close enough to amenities for comfort and convenience, this property is meant for the avid nature lover who has always dreamed of owning property in and around the mountains.
