You can stand virtually anywhere on this ranch and enjoy spectacular views with encompassing mountain ranges to the north, south, east and west. Nearly a mile of Needle Creek runs through the property and fishing is excellent at the nearby Needle Creek Reservoir that is within walking distance from this 160 fenced acre ranch. The beautiful Town of Gunnison is located only 35 miles west from this sprawling ranch. The property’s location in Saguache County is a benefit through minimized building and zoning requirements and tax rates over other desirable locations within Colorado. This secluded pocket of land is located in a small drainage and ranges from creek bottom to irrigated hillside to treed terrain with aspen and pine. Beautiful rock outcroppings and at an elevation from 8,500 to 9,000 feet. Approximately 80 acres irrigated pasture, 70 acres dry land pasture, and balance of the land is in improvements. The ranch is currently host to 3 residential dwellings. Built in anticipation of constructing a main residence, the current main residence is a 1997, 16’ x 80’; 3 bedroom, 2 bath deluxe mobile home in good condition. Complete with an attached mudroom and deck with 6-person hot tub, this will make a comfortable home. Not to mention the nearby greenhouse, pump house, and garden building all located near the home. There was a cabin built in 2003 with the intention of onsite living for a handyman or caretaker. In 2005, an additional cabin built is a very comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath structure complete with a full kitchen and living area. It is a very charming space and relaxing atmosphere. The large deck invites people to sit back and enjoy the never-ending views of the Colorado High Country. But wait, there is more...in 2007 a trophy room building was completed with no detail left out. The space is complete with a wet bar, powder room and a spacious room for entertaining. With 14’ walls there is plenty of room for hunters to display their prizes or for artwork and other collections. For the equestrian lover the property is complete with an 80’ x 160’ riding arena, 60’ round pen, 5 separate 10’ x 16’ stock pens, and 27’ x 72’ pole catch pen. The current owners easily pasture 20 horses on the property from May through mid-November with feeding during winter months. There is also a 40’x 40’ equipment shop complex fully equipped with power, heat and water. This property’s exceptional location allows for hunting, fishing, and hiking out your back door. Located in Division of Wildlife Unit 551, wildlife is abundant on and surrounding Needle Creek Estate. From the property, you can horseback ride directly to the Continental Divide and access the famous Colorado Trail. Priced at $1,950,000, this boasts a most private Mecca for the avid outdoorsman looking for a perfect hunting & fishing year-round hideaway. The ranch has excellent potential for a Conservation Easement as well. Do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have it all!
