NAGS HEAD WEST RANCH
A WESTERN LIFESTYLE EQUESTRIAN FACILITY
This unique ranch property is located on 385 pristine mountain acres just 20 minutes north of the charming mountain town of Westcliffe, Colorado in the Wet Mountain Valley between the towering Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the West and the scenic Wet Mountains to the East.
This area offers a multitude of recreational opportunities in the nearby 2 million acre San Isabel National Forest and the surrounding BLM lands. 52 mountain lakes and approximately 350 miles of streams await the outdoor enthusiast. The ranch has private access to approximately 65,000 acres of BLM along with miles of untouched Grape Creek offering excellent trout fishing, hiking and horseback riding.
On the ranch, treat yourself to over 5 miles of groomed equestrian trails that traverse through the gently rolling terrain consisting of tall Ponderosa and Pinon pine forest, majestic rock outcroppings, park- like wildflower meadows, and spectacular views of the nearby snow-capped peaks. While out on the trail, youll want to stop and have lunch or spend the night at the 110 year old authentic miners cabin nestled in the pines at the edge of a beautiful meadow.
When youre not on the trail, enjoy the Western comfort of the warm and cozy 3,942 square foot ranch style custom cedar Real Log Home from Montana in excellent condition, complete with modern conveniences. From the minute you walk in you will appreciate the open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, and the spacious kitchen with island, granite countertops, two ovens and a gas range. The great room offers panoramic views of the nearby Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range, Pikes Peak and Wet Mountains, hardwood floors and an efficient Vermont Casting wood stove. A full length covered deck awaits you as you step outside from the great room and overlooks the professional landscaping which includes horseshoe pits, a bocce court and sitting areas perfect for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful Colorado weather. Back in the home you will also enjoy the convenience of having the master bedroom suite and two bedroom/offices on the main level.
Lower level living includes TV/family room, two additional bedrooms with spacious closets, a full bath, shop, exercise room, wine cellar, and pantry. A walk out on the lower also gives you another wonderful sitting area with tremendous view of the mountain range.
The ranch compound is completely powered by solar electric which the current owners prefer. Should the new owner want to be connected to the grid that option is available nearby.
Making your way from the home to the well designed and thought out equestrian improvements, youll pass a garden shed with an Onan propane backup generator and the 2-car carport with storage. Improvements include a 12 ft by 52 ft. barn designed to hold up to seven horses, a hay barn capable of storing up to 800 small bales, a utility shed with electricity and 3 frost-free watering posts.
The ranch offers several riding options when youre not on the trail. They include a 60 ft. round pen, a 72 ft. by 140 ft. outdoor arena with covered viewing area and a fully insulated 13,120 sq. ft. (164 ft. by
80 ft.) lighted indoor arena complete with custom footing suitable for both riding and driving, tack room, bathroom, 2 large automatic garage doors and vehicle storage area.
Just a few hundred feet down the hill and through the Ponderosa pines and majestic rock out-croppings, youll come to one of the most cherished places on the ranch known as the Grotto. Youll find yourself back in time over 100 years ago enjoying a chuck wagon-style dinner among the boulders that surround you. Sit and relax while staring at the flicker of the campfire on the rocks and gaze up to the Milky Way as the coyotes howl at the moon in the distance!
