Strawberry Ridge Ranch near Colorado City in Pueblo County Colorado, features a stunning 4,126± deeded acres and 640± acre state lease parcel. One of the many features that make this ranch stand out is the valuable water rights, providing 275 acre-feet of water annually for agriculture and municipal use. Two high producing wells limited to an incredible 840gpm and 400gpm are currently used to distribute water to ponds and water features throughout the property as well as supply four new full circle pivots ranging from 400 to 600 feet long.
The diversity of terrain ranges from new irrigated hay meadows on the east end at a very pleasant 6,200-foot elevation and gently rises up to a moderate 7,500-foot elevation featuring pine, spruce and mixed conifer forests, rock formations and approximately 30 seasonal and spring-fed ponds. Scenic Muddy Creek flows west to east diagonally across the property offering many hidden spots to explore and enjoy year-round.
Deriving its name from a wild strawberry patch on the top of a towering bluff, this ranch offers outstanding big game hunting or watching with an abundant number of species such as trophy elk, mule deer, black bear, pronghorn antelope, bobcat, mountain lion and many small critters like fox, prolific wild turkeys and a variety of waterfowl passing through. There are miles and miles of roads suited for ATVs, UTV’s, pickups, horses, mountain bikes, x-country skis and snowmobiles.
A beautiful new 3,000+ SF log home is being constructed and features a small hidden glen behind the home with a water feature. Ample power has been brought on to the ranch to serve the various residential and agricultural needs. This ranch has the potential to provide modest hay production or cattle income or be a development play subdivided using the permitted water, used as a recreational or hunting ranch, developed into a legacy family retreat or even a combination of these uses.
