Old Saddle Ranch is a 197.4-acre property located near the San Isabel National Forest, with a dramatic landscape defined by stunning views, abundant trees, thriving native grasses, game trails, creek beds, box canyons and rock formations.
An 1,800-foot roadbase driveway leads to one of numerous potential home sites, where there’s already power and a 15 gpm domestic well, approved for limited irrigation, watering livestock, and water use in up to 3 homes. For additional water security, there’s also a 1,700-gallon underground cistern, a smart addition to any rural property. A leach field is in place, engineered for a 3- to 4-bedroom home. Phone and internet service are at the property line.
Behind the home site, the property rises to a plateau offering a 360-degree view, then descends gently to hidden canyons and a seasonal pond. The back 2/3 of this property is a haven for big game, and excursions into these canyons often result in sightings of deer and elk.
This property meets the Colorado acreage requirement for landowner big-game tags, and may be subdivided once.
Partially fenced, with new stretches of fencing in place, the property also boasts a decorative log-rail fence on the property’s west end, fronting Soda Creek Road.
Zoned A-1 (agricultural), property taxes for this parcel are low (just $121 for 2017).
Old Saddle Ranch is approximately 13 miles from the scenic mountain town of Beulah, and approximately 20 miles from Pueblo (pop. 100,000). The property is roughly equidistant between highways 78 and 96, offering two routes to Pueblo/Interstate 25, and two routes west into the mountains. The Red Creek Fire Department is just 4 miles away, and the Colorado Springs airport, offering nonstop service to locations throughout the US, is approximately 66 miles north.
