Retirement is beckoning the owner of this beautiful family-owned ranch since 1921 to offer the ranch for sale. Located 8 miles Northwest of Cortez, Colorado, there are 2 parcels totaling 162.83 acres of orchard, grass, and hay fields. 100 shares of Montezuma Valley Irrigation Company currently at a value of $5,000/share provide ample water for the crops. (1 share of MVI water = 5.625 gpm or 100 shares = 562.50 gpm) Underground pipelines are gravity fed to the side roll sprinklers. Irrigation equipment includes approximately 3,000 feet of side roll sprinklers, all gated pipe, 4 and 6 inch faucets, sprinkler hookup hoses, and aluminum swing lines. Ingenious box is designed to remove debris from the water as it flows through an Aconda S/S screen to keep the sprinklers from plugging. Farm equipment and 2018 crops not included. Tenant farmer willing to stay. The original homestead has a number of buildings with hand-hewn logs (some cedar) or old wood siding. Home was built in 1930 with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, and unfinished basement. Well-built home could be updated and remodeled by adding an addition to increase square footage. This home and a 1984 3 BR, 2 Bath manufactured home are rented. 3/4" domestic water tap through Montezuma Water Company. There is a heritage apple orchard with six varieties and an apple shed used to make apple cider. Well established for someone looking to join the growing CIDER BAR industry. There are two excellent pole hay sheds, older corrals, cellar, garage, workshop, and other outbuildings. Vast landscape includes the beautiful snow packed La Plata Mountain Range, the Mesa Verde National Park with ancestral Puebloan Cliff Dwellings, and the legendary Sleeping Ute Mountain. If you choose to build a new home, there are outstanding building sites.
