Taxes: As per the Jefferson County Appraisal District, taxes on the tract are relatively inexpensive as the ranch is being worked with cattle and qualifies for an agricultural exemption. Taxes paid to Jefferson County total approx. $3,286.00 per year.
Development potential: - A possible exit strategy includes development of 13, 35 acre estate lots on the lower ranch. Private and secluded, these 13 lots would make up El Dorado Preserve with spectacular city views, mountain views, forested woodlands and mountain top "eagles nest" home sites. Each owner would enjoy the 3 mile private trail system which provides for diverse freedom to roam about and enjoy the great outdoors. The buyer will be responsible for drilling his own water well and constructing his own septic system.
While many development strategies exist, the lower ranch could be developed as described with the top ranch which is adjacent to the state park could be put into a conservation easement.
