106 Acres

Land For Sale, Mountain Property, Ridgway, Colorado

106 Ac TBD Hwy 550 , Ridgway, Colorado 81432 | County


Have you dreamed of owning the most unique and beautiful Ouray County property? For those of you who have been residents, semi-residents or visitors for some time, you'll likely recall the sign across the highway from Orvis Hot Springs with the name Lela Belle Springs across its top. You've wondered what treasures were inside that gate! Now it's your chance to make it your family legacy, just as the current owners who have enjoyed it since acquiring it 30 years ago. Look through the shots in the listing, and you'll see that they've lived large here-and so will you! The property is just over 106 acres, which is significant because Colorado and Ouray County guidelines stipulate that properties cannot be less than 35 acres without the full subdivision process. A 35 acre parcel also allows for a home, along with its additional outbuildings and even a guest house. So this parcel allows 3 full homesites for you, your family or your buddies. Perhaps its an investment parcel and your dream would be to recapture your up-front costs through selling off one or two parcels-there are so many choices. The current owners thoughtfully created just that perfect seasonal escape--they obtained permits for the little recreational cabin on the property-just inside the south gate. They added a storage shed, kept the roads clear of debris, and used the property for horseback riding, dirt biking, hiking and just relaxing. These roads, as you'll see from the overhead GIS shot in the listing, are throughout the property, creating amazing access, and even lap over the top to meet up with roads and properties on the east side, beyond the ridge. There's incredible natural resources here-the previously mentioned Lela Belle Spring is not far from the cabin. It now is a small pond, but has been larger in the past-and the sellers placed goldfish here almost 20 years ago-they've thrived and provided a proof of year round water temperatures and water quality. The property owns .25 CFS of deeded irrigation water from the Upper Moody Ditch-an impressive amount of water for many uses and a valuable asset. I includes the mineral rights-properly protecting your investment throughout the life of the property and giving options for geothermal access. Perhaps all that will really matter to you will be its 10+ Views--the full Sneffels Mountain Range is right in front of you as are Down Valley views toward Ouray and Silvertion----or maybe the location--2 miles from Ridgway, 45 miles from Telluride and only 8 miles from Ouray. The commercial hub of Montrose with its Target, Home Depot, Rec Center and commercial and private airports is only 30 miles north. Oh--and if you've been mountain biking or working on your new home--just walk to the famous Orvis Hot Springs-only 1/4 mile away! This is an incredible find-one that you've been eying for years! Schedule a time to come see Lela Belle today--and make it yours!
