McElmo Creek Ranch, Cortez, CO
This little +/- 26.6 acre creek-side parcel is irrigated with adjudicated water rights, bordered and framed by gorgeous cottonwoods and has all-weather county road maintained access. Tucked away, about 24 miles up McElmo Canyon, just to the southwest of Cortez, CO is truly a little four-corners irrigated ranch, an Oasis in the Desert. Snuggled between 2 large parcels of the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, this property feeds world class mule deer, turkey, doves and quail.
A great little parcel that’s been in the same family since 1954, the ranch has water rights in a canyon that has ranch parcels priced in the millions of dollars. This property is surrounded by other parcels that could easily help increase your property value. It would be ideal for a nice alfalfa producer or another crop of your choice. The home could easily be a fixer-upper and there’s also an old trading post/cabin that might be a tear down or another fixer-upper. The wooden cattle working pens should probably be registered as a national historic landmark and are a piece of local history.
Just a couple minutes up the road is the trailhead into the Canyon of the Ancient Ones National Monument, with miles of hiking trails at your doorstep...
You can let your money sit idol in an overpriced, scary market or you can diversify into a sleeping beauty property that could only grow for you, and you’ll probably have a little more fun with it!!!!
