About this property

Known as the 'Solitude Ranch' by its owners, this 40 acre parcel located on Horsefly Mesa between Montrose and Telluride was developed by one of the San Juan Mountains. In addition to the home, there's also a barn with office-studio above, a large storage building and a kiva style workout-meditation room. As you might expect, the solar setup is excellent, with solar electric power as well as solar hot water heating in the main home, and an excellent well, with solar pump. The perfectly square 40 acre+ property is located at roughly 8700 feet and is roughly half tree covered and half open pasture. This layout allows for plenty of room for agricultural uses such as for horses, cattle and other livestock. There are two nice ponds that are situated in the middle of the property, just to the east of the home and other buildings. Mountain views of the Sneffels Range are as nice as you'll find. If you like the idea of the name 'Solitude' this Colorado property is exactly what you're looking for. It's accessed by following the Dave Wood Road south of Montrose until you pass into the National Forest and start back down toward the south, or from the west side of Dallas Divide Pass, the main route between Ridgway and Telluride. Either route brings you to the 'T' at II Road-from there, it's a nice ride west across mostly level but sand/dirt roads to the entrance to the Ranch. Plan on it taking 45 minutes to get to Montrose, Telluride and Ridgway during the non-winter times of the year on roads that are maintained by the Counties. Winter access is by snowmobile or side by side with tracks. The roads are gently sloping and there is no risk of avalanche, making access safe. There are just enough neighbors on other large parcels in the area to keep an eye on your place when you're gone, or to get together for a mountain sunset meal. There's a lot of wildlife, with deer being regular pets, as well as elk-especially during the fall, bear, turkey and grouse. Because there are no covenants, and there is no HOA you are free to use your property to match your Colorado Dream! Park your RV, set up a yurt, invite 30 of your best friends to spend the summer with your in their campers-you name it! Come check out the Solitude Ranch and make it your year-round, seasonal or weekend retreat!
