INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROPERTY


This is a 5 acre property located in the San Luis Valley of Southern Colorado. This is a great residential lot with gorgeous mountain views that you can build a cabin or home on, or use it as an RV lot.  Horses are ok too! The property is in the Rio Grande Ranchos subdivision and is about 1 and 3/4 miles from the River.  There are a couple of great spots where you can drive right down to the river for some great fishing! (see picture 10 of a road down to the river).  The property has gorgeous mountain views from all sides! The lot is flat and has small sage brush on it.  (see pictures 3,4,5, and 6 taken while standing on the lot). The official description of the property is Rio Grande Ranchos, Unit 35, Block 3, Lot 22.  The Parcel/Schedule number is 71533300.  


The zoning for the property is residential/recreational. There are no association fees or dues, and there is no time limit to build a home. There are no liens on the property. All of the roads in the subdivision are wide maintained gravel roads and all are in good condition. (see picture 7 of the road to the property). This property will require solar for power as there is no electricity close by.  This property is going to use a well system for water use and all tracts in the subdivision are guaranteed a well permit. This is extremely important because not all subdivisions in the county can get well permits!    


About Us! 


WE ARE A FAMILY BUSINESS (REICHWEIN RANCHES) THAT HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS, SINCE 1982 AND ARE MEMBERS OF THE BBB OF SOUTHERN COLORADO OUT OF COLORADO SPRINGS WITH AN A+ RATING. ******


We own a Ranch a few minutes outside of the small town of San Luis. (see picture 12 of our family Ranch). My father has been buying and selling property in the San Luis Valley for more than 30 years. My sister and my Dad have been selling property on Ebay for more than 15 years. (see their listings under coloradomtnproperty). We own all our property free and clear, and will be happy to show you your property after you buy whenever you want to come out for a visit. We will have you meet us at our Ranch, and we can drive to the property together (which for this property it would be about 25 minutes away).  We hope you will love Southern Colorado as much as our family does! We also allow our customers to make exchanges for another property during the lifetime of the loan without any extra fees. (other than the price of the property, if there is one). Our family owns several different tracts in many different subdivisions throughout the San Luis Valley. I personally took all the pictures of this property myself.
