Undeveloped land with potential applications. LandAn excellent opportunity to acquire undeveloped property in the San Luis Valley near the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountains! Approximately five miles north of Moffat just off of Colorado Hwy 17, this parcel contains 320 acres, more or less, and is enclosed by barbed wire fencing with access gates. The Saguache County Assessor has this property listed as “Agriculture Type: 4149-Grazing Land” which it appears could be used as such with some needed fence repair and upgrades. The current owner has indicated that there is an artesian well on the property but would need further research and testing as to the viability of a water source. This tract also presents other possibilities of development or commercial use for the new owner or as an investment for future consideration. Areas of interest nearby include the Grand Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, the Colorado Gators Reptile Park (between Hooper and Mosca) and the Valley View Hot Springs to name a few. Monarch Mountain is about one hour to the northwest and Wolf Creek is approximately one hour and 30 minutes to the southwest. Larger communities such as Salida, Monte Vista and Alamosa are all within a one hour drive. ImprovementsBarbed wire fencing with access gates. RecreationCamping, horseback riding, hunting, target shooting , ATV’s and off-roading 4×4 are some of the recreational activities that can be enjoyed on this parcel. AgricultureCurrently zoned as “Agriculture Type: 4149-Grazing Land” by the Saguache County Assessor. Appears it could be used for cattle if viable water source can be verified. Water/Mineral Rights & Natural ResourcesAny water/mineral rights are unknown. If any exist, they will transfer to the new owner upon execution of the deed.

HistoryFirst pinpointed as an excellent railroad town, turn-of-the-century Moffat was considered the queen city of its valley and was home to more than 2,500 residents. Passenger trains connecting the towns of Salida and Alamosa ran daily through Moffat. Reacting to changing times, the town also functioned as a shipping point, major loading center for livestock and a meeting place for hay contactors. When the railroad ceased operations here in 1954, the town’s heyday came to a close. Today Moffat exists primarily as a ranching community, but many of its original buildings such as the old hotel, mercantile, church and town hall are still intact. In addition to old buildings, a thrift store, deli and trading post are worth exploring. LocationProperty is located approximately five miles north of the town of Moffat along County Road 59 (east boundary) and Kit Carson Road (north boundary). The communities of Salida, Monte Vista and Alamosa are all within a one hour or less drive.
