One of Colorados best kept secrets, the Pagosa Springs Area, voted by Outside Magazine in 2015 as one of the Best Small Towns in America, has so much to offer. Pagosa (Est. pop. 8500), features a new Walmart and hospital, great dining, world-class powder skiing and snowboarding, and the best part, its located in the heart of 1.8 million acres of the San Juan National Forest playground. Just 12 miles south of Pagosa, nestled into the San Juan River Valley, is the developed ranch estates of Pinion Hills Ranch. Originally, these 35 acre parcels sold in the early 2000s between $148,000 - $168,000. Pinion Hills Ranch included underground power and phone, private electric gate entrance to the ranch, 12 acres of riverside recreational access (San Juan River), and a private easement into a large section of the San Juan National Forest that is difficult for the public to access. The ranch is zoned single-family residential, including livestock, with each owner being responsible for drilling their own well. There is also a community water source for ranch residents. Pinon Hills Ranch also allows hunting with crossbow or archery gear (no firearm hunting). Five or six homes are completed within the ranch, with two to three being planned this year. The electronic gate allows for very secure absentee ownership, as well as fulltime local residents. Pinion Hills Ranch keeps a working relationship with a local cattleman who cattle-grazes the ranch a few weeks each summer, allowing for agricultural status on your local taxes. Annual tax bills are below $100 per lot for a majority of the parcels. Its not unheard of to catch an occasional group of mustangs from the nearby mesa that drop into the ranch as well. No one is accumulating junk on the ranch parcel next door looking like Sanford and Son crossed with Dukes of Hazards, as the ranch CCRs provides for a minimum square footage for a home, no trailer houses or modular homes and the HOA dues are only $700 annually. Pinon Hills Lot # 39 was sold years ago. It was one of the first picked lots because of the outstanding 360-degree views, 100% usable ground and close proximity to the National Forest Access Easement. Life circumstances require the owners to liquidate with a quick sale price of $89,000, including power, phone and maintained road access. Enjoy the year-round recreation of the San Juan Mountains, Wolf Creek for skiing, Pagosa Springs for dining and the 29-mile long Navajo Lake for boating and fishing.
