Featuring 214 +/- deeded acres 190+/- irrigated hay meadows and pastures, with 24+/- additional dry acres. The ranch is located in the heart of the Little Cimarron River Valley, a picturesque Colorado landscape with lush meadows, a meandering river, and dramatic surrounding peaks Ranch includes shared use of 5.8125 CFS of irrigation water rights Conveniently located 24 miles from Montrose, CO Year-round access via State Highway 50 and Little Cimarron Road Situated at the northern edge of the famed San Juan Mountain Range Habitat for elk, mule deer, moose, bear, and turkey Minutes from the Cimarron State Wildlife Area, BLM lands, and Uncompahgre National Forest. 15 miles from the recreational amenities of Blue Mesa Reservoir. The property is not encumbered by a conservation easement. Thanks to its location on the northern edge of the famed San Juan Mountain Range, the ranch is surrounded by some of the West's most spectacular recreational amenities. Telluride Ski Resort is less than a two-hour drive from the ranch, and Blue Mesa Reservoir is only 15 minutes to the east. The quaint mountain towns of Ridgway and Ouray are within driving distance, not to mention the vast Uncompahgre National Forest just south of the ranch, which offers world-class hunting, hiking, camping, mountain biking, and numerous other outdoor adventures. Little Cimarron Valley Ranch offers a unique opportunity to participate in a cutting-edge conservation partnership that simultaneously benefits both agricultural operations and the health of a well-known river system. The ranch's agreements with Colorado Water Trust ensures that water will remain in the river when needed, directly benefiting the entire riparian ecosystem. When water is plentiful, particularly early in the season, water can be used for agricultural purposes, an important part of the heritage and history of this valley. Rarely is there an opportunity to irrigate ranchland without either owning or leasing the water rights. Even more rare is the ability of a landowner to positively influence both agriculture and the local ecosystem. Yet this unique partnership with the Colorado Water Trust enables all of these benefits, a true win-win for a conservation-minded buyer. Despite the conservation-focused water partnership, the property is not encumbered by conservation easements. Should a buyer decided to conserve part or all of the property, significant state and federal tax benefits may be available. Home is dilapidated with no value associated to the improvements.
