If you are looking to build and want to save a lot of time and money on the groundwork and want to avoid 'hidden work fees' that come with buying raw land in Colorado, this 35-acre ranch in the sought-after Santa Fe Trail Ranch is the parcel for you. The already completed 42x66 house pad has a view of Fishers Peak that cannot be beat. Abundant wildlife roams the ranch including elk, mule deer, turkey, mountain lions and bear. Watch the sunset over Fishers Peak from your back porch! Enter through a solar powered ghost control zombie lock gate with two 12' gates. You will notice the leveled driveway with road base and rocks. The driveway Y's off into two separate clearings. To the right is a 42x66 house pad on a ridge facing Fishers Peak with breathtaking views. To the left is a perfect spot for your barn that has already been cleared and close enough to access the septic system and water lines. Down the cleared roadway beyond the barn clearing, you will find a great start to a pond that has been dug. Elk, mule deer, and turkey are seen in this area on a regular basis.

The electric is complete with a 200-amp main service panel and a 50-, 30-, and 20-amp GFCI RV outlet, installed on the back of the main breaker and ready for your RV needs. Power is run to the vault for lighting and power to the booster pump and pressure tank. Power is also run to the septic tank.

The water main is setup on the property, so no hauling water in. It has a 1500-gallon concrete cistern tank and a concrete vault that houses the water shut off valves and the booster pump that supplies 3 Woodford frost free hydrants on the property and 1 frost free access box and shut off valve next to the house pad, when you are ready to build. So, you will have plenty of water pressure across the property.

The septic system is a required engineered system, it is designed by Atencio Engineering. It is a 3 chamber 1500-gallon concrete tank with 3 riser lids, already installed. The leach field has been completed with the required infiltrators and the required 3 feet of sand beneath, that has been tested and passed. The report is on hand and the amount of sand that went back into the hole as well, 99 TONS of sand. The Orenco Pro Pak is needed to complete the septic, power has already been run to the septic tank for the Pro Pak. It can then go through final inspection and be covered up and ready for use.

Blueprints for the house to be built are included, as well as stamped Colorado prints for a monolithic concrete slab or bring your own plans. Quotes for the lumber are pictured and from Alpine lumber, so you get an idea of the cost associated with building this beautiful 2834 sq ft home.

POA dues annually for SFTR are $2085.00, broken up quarterly to $522.00. This includes POA dues, Bridge loan, and maintenance fees. With this you get year around road maintenance and snow plowing in the winter for safe travels in and out of the ranch. There are also a couple of ponds on the ranch and a community center with year round activities. Annual property taxes are around $12.00.

If you want to purchase a parcel where all the groundwork is done, don't miss this hidden gem in the heart of southern Colorado!
