Comanche Creek Ranch represents both the spirit of the West, and a rare opportunity to acquire a multifaceted property that can immediately function as a ranch, farm, equestrian/livestock operation, or income property with multiple revenue streams. This ranch’s abundant water rights add significant value, and create additional, as-yet-untapped opportunities. The property has two residences, perfect for multiple households or group gatherings. Land The ranch is located in the quiet farm and ranch country of Colorado’s Elbert County, where forest gives way to the tranquility of the prairie. Accessed via well-maintained roads, this 60-acre property occupies a landscape of open fields, meadows, and rolling pastures, with mature trees and a few rock formations (perfect settings for picnics or potentially a hot tub) adding to the scene. The property’s lush, 40-acre hay field produces an outstanding annual crop (2-3 cuttings per year) of grass-alfalfa mix. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy frequent visits from herds of deer, and the various bird species drawn to the property’s lodgepole pines and numerous birdhouses. Improvements House The ranch’s 4,000 sf, 2-story custom home features 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, as well as a custom kitchen with granite countertops, a vast master suite, and a fully equipped 2nd kitchen downstairs, creating a great space for guests, or the potential for a completely separate living quarters. With both a family room and a living room (complete with a gas fireplace), this home offers abundant space for entertaining. A wraparound deck surrounds the home on three sides, offering views of the property’s tranquil landscape, and of Pikes Peak. A back deck, complete with a fire pit, provides a peaceful spot for evening gatherings. An attached 3-car garage offers convenient access, and is just steps from the kitchen and pantry. Guest House The nearly 1,000 sf, 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house has a spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen, its own washer and dryer, and a sun room featuring a wood stove. An enclosed porch runs nearly the full length of the guest house’s west side, overlooking a forested area between the property’s two homes, and there’s a spacious deck on the east side, complete with a gas fire pit. There’s also a garden space close to the guest house, as well as a tree swing that provides a peaceful spot to pass the day. Horse Barn A 2,000 sf, 4-stall horse barn features attached corrals/runs (leading to crossfenced pastures), as well as a spacious tack room, abundant hay storage, and a sizable chicken coop, leading to a large outdoor area with a secured, fenced cage facility for poultry. The poultry facilities could easily be adapted for use as a dog kennel. Workshop At 1,200 sf, the shop building is divided into 3 interior spaces, including a multipurpose room, dedicated shop space, and a “grow room” that’s been used to cultivate tomatoes and other vegetables. Water/Mineral Rights & Natural Resources The ranch has a highly productive well. Moreover, the property comes with rare and abundant water rights. These include: Upper Dawson Aquifer: 6.6 acre-feet/year Arapaho Aquifer: 19.6 acre-feet/year Lower Dawson Aquifer: 6 acre-feet/year Laramie-Fox Hills Aquifer: 23 acre-feet/year Denver Aquifer: 28.1 acre-feet/year General Operations Past income streams for this property have included rental income for the guest house; stall space in the barn; and a revenue split with a custom harvester, splitting proceeds from hay sales. This ranch is also a USDA-registered farm, creating the potential for USDA funding to aid with operations or conservation efforts. Location This ranch is located in an equestrian-oriented community, and neighbors similarly sized properties, all with beautiful custom homes and barns. Dedicated equestrian easements border each parcel, creating a unique network of riding and hiking trails exclusively for property owners. Basic services, groceries, and gas can be found in the nearby small town of Elbert, a quiet, no-stoplight community. Colorado Springs is just 30 miles away; the COS airport, offering direct service to destinations throughout the country, is a 39-mile drive, generally well under 1 hour. From the ranch, a commuter can travel to Denver or the Denver airport without ever touching I-25.
