South River Equestrian is located just south of the quaint and nationally known western Colorado town of Olathe. The agricultural heritage in this lush valley runs deep, along with the true rural western lifestyle. This ranch encompasses all that makes this area great! Twenty-two and a half total acres - with fourteen irrigated from some of the best water in the area. A private ditch provides a half-acre foot per share, giving those 14 acres around 500 small bales per cutting, weighing in at 60 pounds each! Set up to accommodate all your equestrian needs, with a large 9-stall barn with a washroom, birthing stall, downstairs bathroom, and upstairs living quarters. This property was once a place that hosted large equine events, riding training, and boarding with its 200×300ft arena, 50′ round pen, and indoor/outdoor stalls. This is the perfect income-producing property, with great horse facilities waiting for you! With the charming 1,044 sqft, 2 bed, 1 bathroom living space above the barn, the possibilities are endless. Live onsite while building your dream home with utilities already nearby. When finished you are left with guest facilities where mountain views above your grazing horses can be enjoyed from both decks. Rent it out for additional income as a VRBO with a rare opportunity for travelers with horses and trailers to stay. Upon a tour of the ranch one can see its vast potential ready to be tapped into!
