Take a trip worlds away from it all and build your dream home in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in the highly sought after private gated Ptarmigan Meadows subdivision. Just under 1 acre, this hillside building lot is the ideal jumping off point for all the adventures that Colorado offers. Offering spectacular views of Bristol Head, your house can be nestled amongst a mature aspen grove. Your neighbors are nearby, but not right on top of you. Ptarmigan Meadows has one of the best private stocked fishing ponds in the area, and a tight-knit community of like minded adventurers. Many people are the original owners because they return year after year for the myriad of summer activities. This is a high altitude location at 9,489 feet, so be ready to enjoy cool summers and snowy winters. You will plan to drill a well, install a septic system, and hook into electricity and internet from Ciello. Recent sales of homes in the neighborhood (last ones in 2021) range from $200/ft to $313/ft, or $249,000 to $575,000. Located between the towns of Creede and Lake City, you will feel worlds away from it all. Grab a burger at nearby Freemon’s Ranch or stop off at the Bristol Head Art Gallery on your drive home. The Silver Thread Scenic Byway, filled with majestic views start to finish, will bring you right to the front gate of the community which is nestled in the San Juan Mountains. Rio Grande Reservoir, the headwaters of the Rio Grande River, and all of the camping and fishing you could ever dream of, is just down the road. Spring Creek Pass is nearby and is a trailhead for through hikers on the Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail. Located in GMU 76, an elk hunters’ paradise. Birds galore ranging from hummingbirds to geese and mountain bluebirds, this area welcomes birds of all shapes and sizes year round. Nearby, the Weminuche Wilderness area provides 499,771 acres of forest to explore. Winter activities nearby include snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and ice fishing. Build in this location and you will have a cozy home to relax in after a long day outside.
