A rare opportunity to own this incredible 110 acres just south of Jackson Reservoir and north of Mancos with ponds and water rights. A lovely combination of trees, ponderosa pines, conifer, cedar, oak and grassy meadows, with stellar views of the La Plata Mountains or Sleeping Ute/Point Look Out (Mesa Verde). Offering your choice of several wonderful building sites and options. Abundant wildlife of all sorts, deer and wild turkey are common to see. Trails throughout the property and into both State Park and National Forest access are right out your back door not to mention Jackson Reservoir. This is an amazing paradise for outdoor lovers and recreation: hiking, fishing, trail riding, biking, hunting, snowshoeing/snowmobiling, 4 wheeling and more. The property has varied terrain and topography which can best be described in three sections, ranging from 7800 foot to 7400 foot in elevation. The upper portion is fairly flat ground consisting of pretty rolling meadows, trees, creeks and ponds. It totals approximately 52 acres, about 36 of which is internally fenced. This area has a lot of live water running through it: Crystal Creek meanders through the eastern side and also serves to carry irrigation water plus fill one of the larger ponds. Then further west there is an irrigation ditch for a southern neighbor which runs near the ‘rim’ where the property slopes west. In the middle section or bench, at the bottom of the rim slope, is the Jackson Reservoir Canal which carries water all the way through the property for irrigators in the entire Mancos Valley. This area is also nicely treed with some meadows and plentiful game and hiking trails. Access to this area is on foot or via a road easement from the adjacent property to the north. At the lowest elevation is Chicken Creek and valley, about 33 acres, which also runs south through the property. It is green and cool here any summer days and ofcourse attracts a myriad of wildlife. A great spot to make a picnic or campsite. Across, on the west side of the creek, the elevation climbs again is about 14 acres of a more remote part of the property without any road access. One Mancos Rural Water tap and power are both already brought in to the northeast corner of property. A great spot to camp or create an RV site. There is no HOA or covenants. Access to the property is currently from the north via an easement off of Road 41.95, just before the State Park. However there is also an undeveloped southern access off Road 42. The property is only 4 miles to the historic town of Mancos, an eclectic small community with schools, restaurants, shops, a grocery store and even it’s own Farmers market. Then only 15 minutes further west to Mesa Verde National Park. The town of Durango, with lots of amenities and stores, is 31 miles and a pretty drive to the east and just a bit over an hour to Purgatory Resort for skiing and other recreation. An easy 20 minutes to Cortez for larger supermarkets and necessities and a beautiful 2 hour drive to Telluride. This area of the southwest is central to all sorts of outdoor recreation any time of year! Within a couple of hours in any direction you could be in the high desert, or Lake Powell or a 14,000ft peak. This is an unusual piece especially such large private acreage so close to Mancos. The land has excellent conservation easement potential and the location would make a great estate or retreat property.
