J7J Ranch

1308 CR 319, Westcliffe, Colorado 81252 - Custer County
$300,000 59.82 Acres
Property ID 2876103


Beautiful land ready to build on, that is NOT in an HOA or POA. It has low, low agriculture taxes of only $18.96/year (yes, that low!). This is really sweet, high-mountain acreage with a 2013 domestic water well, perimeter fenced for your animals and there's an old hand-dug well on the land that's been left undisturbed. The new, 5 gpm well is located central to multiple build sites each with incredible views to the high mountains. The land has pine forest, wide grassy meadows and incredible views in all directions. This is private ground not located in any subdivision and is only 7 miles from town on paved roads, except about a mile, if. That's not easy to find in rural Colorado, but the J7J Ranch is in the country yet with the best access. The county road that fronts the property is a #1 priority and is well-maintained. The land is very private and protected from view by any neighbors. There are 2 points of entry into the land and a build site has been cleared and leveled via the further north driveway. The owners scraped and piled the rich top soil first before leveling the site, in order to re-use it around the home to be built. The balance of the land has been cleared of the old homestead "history" that usually lies around ranches, and the forest thinned and cleaned. Certainly more thinning could take place by the next owner and it would create a park-like setting, while providing plenty of firewood for the fireplace. 
Located in Custer County, Colorado, the J7J Ranch is a great place to build a life. The small, rural town of Westcliffe is the county seat and the super friendly and talented people who live here, make it easy to negotiate moving, building and belonging. There's room for horses, cattle, goats, gardens, barns and bunkhouses. The International Dark Sky Association certified the neighboring towns of Westcliffe and Silver Cliff in southern Colorado?s Wet Mountain Valley, as the world?s ninth Dark Sky Community, and we're very proud of our clean air and star-filled skies. The climate is high desert with low humidity and plenty of sunshine. Hunting and fishing are part of family life and there's plenty of deer, elk, antelope and trout to be sought. The Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains are the Valley's western boundary and thousands of acres of wilderness remain for exploring. Hike to the high mountain lakes for fly-fishing and watch the herds of Mountain Goat leap the craggy cliffs for a drink of cold water. Big Horn Sheep, Black Bear and Eagle (Bald and Golden) make the valley their home. Mountain lion, coyote, bobcat and an occasional moose reside here also. 
If you haven't seen the Wet Mountain Valley you're in for a treat. This is a place unlike any other and we would like to see it stay that way. If you're wanting a simpler life then visit us soon. Let's check out the J7J Ranch, take a walk around the land, clear your mind and contemplate the better things Creation has to offer.


From Westcliffe take Hwy 69 south 3.5 miles to CR 328, make a left (east) to CR 319 or the first right you come to. Take CR 319 to the property on your left. Two signs mark the existing 2 County Road access points currently in place. Please park anywhere on the existing north driveway and walk to view the entire acreage. Water well location is flagged heavily.
