$19,900,000  •  4,797.21 acres
Winding River Ranch is located less than 30 miles from Buena Vista, Buena Vista Central Colorado Regional Airport and 10 minutes by paved State Highway 285 south of Fairplay. It encompasses a highly diverse block of 6,432+/- acres (4797.21+/- deeded) that lies at 9,300 feet just below the continental divide which includes some of Colorado’s famous 14,000-foot peaks. The lower reaches of the ranch include a rich wetland complex that supports nearly five miles of world-class private fishing on the highly regarded South Fork of the South Platte River. The upper reaches of the ranch include steeper, timbered terrain that offers private trophy quality elk and deer hunting – with rare hunting tags. There is enough land to support modest hay production, summer grazing for livestock and horses and three irrigated food plots, although fish and wildlife are the crop of choice for the current owners. The ranch has an extensive common boundary with the Pike National Forest and boasts dramatic postcard-quality views of Pike’s Peak to the south and Teller and Hoosier Ridges along the continental divide to the north. To further “ice this cake” it is a short 45-minute drive to Breckenridge Ski Resort and only a 90-minute drive to Denver/DIA. The turnkey improvements are comfortable, useful, appropriate but not over the top in any way. In summary, Winding River Ranch pretty much has it all: scale (over 6,000 acres), great fishing, quality hunting, terrific scenery, good privacy plus easy access to major international air service, to an attractive small town and to a destination ski resort.

$500,000  •  183.48 acres
Located on Cross Mountain in the Fossil Ridge Wilderness of Gunnison County are (18) contiguous mining claims totaling for 183.48-acres (Wahl, Gold Cleft, Gold Cross, Gold Eagle, Gold Coin, Yellow Diamond, Mountaineer, Gunnison, St. Louis, McCormack, Little Hattie, Red Cloud, Parkview, Cross Mountain 1, 2, &3, and Crown Point 1 & 2). The property contains dedicated Forest Service access via four-wheel drive/ATV roads and is seasonal due to winter snowfall levels.The combined site is an in-holding surrounded by designated Wilderness and Gunnison National Forest lands. This is a remote area of the county located approximately nine-miles from Taylor Park Reservoir and about 30-miles from the nearest town of Almont. The City of Gunnison and Towns of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte are a short-drive from Almont. The historic mining town of Tin Cup is situated approximately 10-miles to the northeast. Each of the claims are patented and have remained under the same ownership for decades. No mining has occurred while under current ownership, though a single shaft, reportedly at a depth of 550' (+/-) was utilized for the extraction of gold circa the mid-1960's (gold pricing at that time was $35.50 per ounce). According to the current owner, he was able to identify the vein the lode miners were following at the end of the shaft. The original opening of the mine shaft was collapsed to prevent public access and there are no known past milling operations or related environmental concerns on-site.Topography consists of level benches, steeply sloping hillsides and granite mountain top areas above timberline. Various alpine lakes and streams are in close proximity to the claims and are contained on public lands. Elk, mule deer and moose sightings are common. The Gunsight and Lottis Creek Trails originate near the Lottis Creek Campground in Taylor Canyon and extend in a southerly direction just to the west of the claims. Views from the claims are impressive and include an expansive portion of the Continental Divide to the east (Collegiate Peaks in the direction of Buena Vista and Leadville) and to the north (towards Crested Butte and Aspen/Snowmass). Taylor Park Reservoir is also visible to the north looking across Union Park.Due to the location within a designated Wilderness, the parcels could potentially be exchanged with the U.S. Forest Service in enhancing an owner's other land holdings.Note that Gunnison County GIS incorrectly maps the parcels as being located slightly further to the southwest of Cross Mountain. Please refer to the maps in the listing for an accurate visual of the location.

Rural life on the land describes this very private horse property located in the high country of central Colorado. This property is a rare find in Chaffee County having 40 acres with no homeowners association, covenants, power lines or other intrusions to restrict your enjoyment of the land. Offering ultimate privacy, while being only 10 minutes from downtown Buena Vista. The property is fully fenced with a corral, stalls, loafing shed and a barn with insulated tack room and workshop wired for 110 and 220 with ample storage and plenty of work space for many projects. There is abundant wildlife for viewing or hunting, with mule deer, pronghorn antelope and elk traveling through the property during much of the year. The County road is regularly maintained and snow is plowed by the County in the winter. This road is not a through road which provides for very limited traffic throughout the year. An additional benefit is that the property located across the County Road is owned by Adventures Unlimited which creates a wonderful view shed that is unlikely to ever be obstructed by future development. The home is built of Swedish Cope Manufactured logs, which are cut to be very uniform and provide for a very secure fit between the logs. The "Man Cave" area is 384 Square feet that is perfect for your pool table/game room, or to accomodate guests and the wood stove provides for that extra mountain feel. The loft adds an additional 130 Square feet of relaxation area with great views of Mt. Princeton. The exterior was refinished in 2018 and the decking was refinished in the spring of 2019. The home is move in ready and includes a cord of fire wood, ladders for maintenance and window cleaning, a propane generator for backup power, a snowblower for clearing the driveway, a lawn mower, propane grill with tank, and a 1000 gallon main propane tank to take advantage of lower summer fuel prices. Finally, the layout of the property allows for huge mountain views as well as down valley views, while maintaining the privacy and shelter of the tall pine trees to the North and West side of the home.Buena Vista is an Outdoor Recreational Paradise. Elevation Outdoors Magazine recently released a poll rating Buena Vista as the"Best Mountain Town in the Rockies", beating number two by a huge margin. With 85% of the County being public lands, the outdoor opportunities are boundless. From hiking (Chaffee County has the highest concentration of 14,000 foot peaks in the country), to Rafting and Kayaking on the world renown Arkansas River. The only thing holding you back is your imagination.
