Teller Park Ranch3
Pikes Peak and the surrounding area are rich in history and western culture and the 570-acre Teller Park Ranch is an ideal parcel for those seeking privacy and seclusion. This property lies a short-distance south of the town of Florissant, and approximately 30-minutes to the west of the City of Woodland Park. Placed a short-distance west of Pikes Peak (a.k.a. America's Mountain), this property is truly a prime place to build your dream home or retreat and command world-class views and privacy. Year-round accessibility and hunt ability are also strong attributes. Over 36,000-acres just to the north are under the ownership or management of the Colorado Outdoor Education Center, the National Forest Service and the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, providing both buffers and public land accessibility. There are no easements in-place and the property is accessible from four different and private areas via maintained county roads. There are numerous vantage points from the ranch that afford views of Pikes Peak, the Collegiate Peaks and Sangre De Cristo ranges that are second to none. Typical views on the ranch range from open grass meadows, tree-lined draws, unique rock outcroppings and ponderosa pine and quaking aspen thickets. Current ownership has recently improved (4) springs with stock tank waterers and repaired or replaced all perimeter and cross-fencing. The combination of the springs, surface ponds and seasonal flow creeks situated throughout the property provide excellent water availability. Given the access options and number of premium building sites, the larger tract could be re-parceled and sold individually. Hunting on the property is good for elk and mule deer with the numbers occupying or passing through expected to vastly improve following the recent water improvements. The area deer population is thriving with top quality bucks and good stable herd numbers. Merriam Turkeys and many other wildlife species inhabit the property and surrounding area (antelope, mountain lion, black bear and grouse). The ranch is located in unit 581, an over-the-counter unit for archery elk and 2nd & 3rd rifle seasons. Teller Park is situated in a draw area for mule deer and owners should be successful in drawing tags and receiving landowner vouchers, if desired. The property is also located just south of the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument: a 6,000-acre attraction containing a visitor center, walking trail and other exhibits.Mueller State Park is also in close proximity to the ranch and serves as an additional recreational amenity. Woodland Park is the nearest sizable city with a full-time population of about 8,000 residents and provides primary retail and lodging services. Florissant is a quaint town located just to the north and containing basic services. The historic mining town of Cripple Creek is essentially located an equal distance to the south and provides the nearest entertainment venue in the form of 12 casinos and various historic exhibits and museums. There is excellent fishing within one hour of the ranch with good stretches of the South Platte and the Arkansas Rivers being open to the public. There are also nearby lakes such as 11 Mile, Spinney, Tarryall and Antero Reservoirs. These lakes hold some of the largest trout in the state and also offer good success for anglers seeking pike. The ranch is approximately one-to-two hours drive on good roads to the Monarch, Cooper and Summit County Ski Areas. Co-brokers welcome. For more information please call Brent Hedrick.
