Description

Shadow Wild is the epitome of the west with all its beauty and history. Just a few miles from the Indian Hills Post Office and a short 30 minute drive to Denver, and family owned since 1961, this magnificent 164 acre property is rich in Colorado history and lore. Comprised of a quartersection of land known as Shadow Wild, the original homestead cabin (1227 square feet) was built around 1880 and the primary residence, a 3 bedroom, 3 bath log home was built in 2001. Two additional guest cabins built in the 20's and 30's, a historic pole barn built in the early 1970's, and a log tack house built in the 1880's round out the historical structures on the ranch. The property has traditionally been used for logging, mining, cattle/horses ranching and hunting. The land is a mixture of gentle rolling meadows and forested areas. The entire property is maintained under a Colorado Forest Service approved Forest Management Plan and is taxed at an agricultural property tax rate. Access to the property is by a permanent recorded easement through the Lane Ranch community. The property is fully fenced with 5 strand barbed wire and log wildlife crossings fully repaired and replaced in 1999. The main entrance is guarded by a solar powered security gate. Tradition tells of the use of this area as a travel territory by Native Americans. There are still several "Indian trees" (trees that were bent to the ground aiming the direction of travel as tribes went from camp to camp). Incorporate a conservation easement into your tax planning for 2018 and with incredible views of the Mount Falcon Open Space this ranch would make the perfect executive retreat, family estate or private dude ranch. If you want to escape the city to a mountain hideaway refuge and just get away from it all, but still like the city conveniences, Shadow Wild is for you. The recreational opportunities are endless. It is difficult to find a ranch of any size more accessible than Shadow Wild.With elk, turkey, bear, deer and various other wildlife visiting the property, you never know who might be joining you for coffee in the morning! And with 2 wheel drive access and excellent cell service, you'll want to work from home and stay all day! WATER:Intermittent, seasonal creek. Water rights adjudicated to 3 wells and 2 natural springs in 1971. New 600' deep water well permitted in 2000.
