Welcome to the High Mountain Ranch in Park County Colorado! This beautiful property consists of 1,272 contiguous acres that boasts an impressive mix of meadows, mountains, ponds, and views. Located just one and a half hours West of Colorado Springs and under 3 hours from Denver International Airport, this is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of Colorado's Front Range. This ranch includes a custom, off-the-grid, 3-bedroom home and a large barn to store all the big kids' toys. This ranch is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including Elk, Mule Deer, Bear, Turkey, and Bobcat. In addition, the property borders the Pike National Forest, which opens the door to hunt and explore thousands of more acres!
High Mountain Ranch is located in Game Management Unit 58, which is a limited draw unit for Elk, Mule Deer, Bear, and Antelope. The property is eligible to apply for big game tags through the Landowner Preference Program, which are transferable to 3rd parties if the landowners wish. The perfect mix of meadows, aspen groves, dark timber, and live water make this ranch a haven for Elk, especially once hunting season starts. The current owners are careful only to hunt certain parts of the ranch, leaving other parts as sanctuary areas for the elk and deer to rest and feed. The unique combination of Merriam Turkeys and the occasional Antelope make this ranch one of the most diverse hunting properties on the market today. A large number of water sources help complete the ideal mountain ecosystem for wildlife and cattle alike.
While the ranch offers opportunities to hike, camp, snowmobile, ski, sled, jeep, or just sit and watch the clouds float by, there are a fantastic amount of additional recreational options in the general area as well. The famous rivers of the Arkansas and South Platte are both within half an hour's drive of the ranch, as well as Spinney, Eleven Mile, and Antero Reservoirs. The stunning depths of the Royal Gorge, gambling in the historic town of Cripple Creek, and breathtaking views from Pikes Pike are all within an hour of the ranch, so there is always something to keep you and your friends busy.
The custom log home has commanding views of the ranch and the snow-capped peaks and rolling mountains surrounding it. While located at the end of a gated private road, the property includes road maintenance and snow removal up to one of the ranch's interior gates. The home is totally "off-the-grid and has solar power, a 10K backup generator, propane boiler heating system, wood fireplace, domestic well with 1,200-gallon cistern, new paint, hardwood floors, and a wrap-around Trex system deck. Also, there is a large detached barn to store tractors, ATV's, snowmobiles, trailers, tools, or anything else deemed necessary to enjoy this one of a kind ranch fully! The ranch is well fenced and has a grazing lease to ensure Agricultural Zoning / Tax Status. This helps the taxes stay low while allowing the owner to apply in Colorado's Big Game Landowner Preference Program.
Just in the last year alone, the owners have spent an extensive amount of time and money improving the property, including, but not limited to installing New Solar Panels, Lithium Batteries for Power Storage, Back-Up Generator, Furnace, Splitrail Fencing Around the Home, Cattlegaurd, Stock Tanks, and Well Pump.
High Mountain Ranch has an impressive number of water sources, including stock tanks, springs, ponds, and creeks. The owners are currently working with water attorneys and water engineers to prefect and develop all of the opportunities for water on the ranch. There are currently 7 ponds, 8 springs, and a handful more that are due to be developed in the coming weeks. These water rights add a ton of value to the ranch and will transfer to the new owner at closing.
In summary, whether you are looking for a ranch for hunting, development, cattle grazing, or just relaxing, High Mountain Ranch should be the first place you look! Call Mike Callan or Seth Craft today to schedule your private showing.
