Horse ranch, hunting property, recreational retreat with spacious log home--this Colorado recreational ranch has a gorgeous mountain home on 63 acres, close to National Forest lands with hunting, snowmobiling, horseback riding, 4-wheeling, and lots of mountain recreation. The home is a beautiful log home of 4,250 square feet, with vaulted ceilings, expansive decks, spacious game room and family room, large master suite, and a total of 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Located 11 miles south of Crawford, Colorado, the ranch is surrounded by the West Elks mountain range and near the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. The ranch has 63 acres, much of which is horse pasture. Two large ponds provide a cool summer treat. Irrigation is provided by runoff water from neighboring ranches. The pastures are well fenced with well-maintained rail fences. The horse paddock is fenced with quality metal fencing, and there are 4 stalls in the run-in shelter adjacent to the barn. The barn itself is insulated with a good workshop area and plenty of room to bring in a tractor or large pickup for maintenance. This property is very close to thousands of acres of National Forest lands, and the owner has harvested several nice mule deer bucks and several elk right on the property. Elk migrate through the ranch by the hundreds during certain times of year. GMU 63 is known as one of the best units in the state for trophy mule deer bucks, and many Boone & Crockett bucks have been taken within a 10-mile radius of the property. Elk hunting in the vicinity is excellent. There are good populations of bears, wild turkeys, and mountain lion as well. The property can be purchased with an additional 35 acres of mountain pasture land for a total price of $1,249,000.
