Property Description

Platte Valley Acres is a 58.93 acre estate that has been meticulously developed and maintained over the last 30 years. Whether you are looking for a hunting property, a property on which to run your livestock, or a home to get away from the city, Platte Valley Acres is sure to exceed your expectations! Less than a mile from the Platte River and in the dead center of the 'Golden Triangle', Platte Valley Acres is on the X for the best waterfowl hunting Colorado has to offer. Three shares of the Putnam Ditch and a 1400 GPM unmetered well feed the elaborate pond system that attracts both big and small game. When you aren't haying or working your livestock, the pool deck offers a quick escape from the summer heat as well as a lavish entertaining platform with immaculate sunset views over the ponds and Platte Valley. If you are looking for a property that quite literally has it all, you've come to the right place.


Platte Valley Acres is located in Orchard, CO, just over an hour from Denver, Denver International Airport (DIA), and 25 minutes from the services of Fort Morgan. The property has frontage on Highway 34 guaranteeing year-round access.


The 58.93 acres on which Platte Valley Acres sits is top-tier land for recreational and commercial uses alike. From hunting and farming to training dogs and horses, there is no lack of entertainment to be had. The cropland on the property currently grows grass hay and alfalfa and can be flood irrigated to increase existing yields for multiple annual cuttings. The terrain on the property is flat and usable, allowing for further development as a buyer may see fit. Come fall, migrating waterfowl knows that this property is a safe haven and flock to the ponds and never-frozen warm water slough on the Eastern border of the property. Given the extensive water rights Platte Valley Acres has to offer, habitat could be further developed/expanded to attract game both big and small. The neighboring properties are undeveloped, allowing for maximum privacy and minimal disturbance.


Less than a mile from the Platte River, and right in the middle of Riverside, Empire, and Jackson Reservoirs (the Golden Triangle), this property has the hunting potential of a property 5X its size. Located in Game Management Unit (GMU) 951, the land is far enough East to receive traffic from both Whitetail and Mule Deer, along with turkey and never-ending waves of waterfowl in the fall who like to fly from reservoir to reservoir.


After a day of recreation on the property, the 4,000+ sqft. house gives you ample space to entertain friends/family and provides an immaculate view of the property you take so much pride in. Retreat to the master bedroom on the main floor for private views of your property, and give your family/friends some elbow room in any of the remaining bedrooms in the basement, from where they can walk out and enjoy a dip in the pool. If four bedrooms isn't enough, the guest cabin can provide for extra lodging, and the adjacent RV pad provides all the necessary plugins for your mobile guests. During cold winter nights, geothermal heat provides adequate warmth to the main house at a discount, or stoke a fire in either of the wood-burning stoves. When dawn breaks again and it's time to get back to work or play, head to the 60x80 barn or the 30x60 Cleary building to gear up for the day.
