Pinon Hills - 70 Acres Parcels 44 & 45 - $100,000 This 70-acre listing consists of two 35-acre parcels, which can be purchased as one parcel or split into two separate parcels ($57,900 per parcel if purchased individually). These parcels gently slope into the valley area and would be perfect as horse properties. Just 12 miles south of Pagosa, nestled into the San Juan River Valley, is the developed ranch estates of Pinon Hills Ranch. Originally, these 35 acre parcels sold in the early 2000s between $148,000 and $169,000. Pinon Hills Ranch included underground power and phone, private electric gate entrance to the ranch, 12 acres of riverside recreation 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. Pinon 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 $20 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. The ranch CCRs provide for a minimum square footage for a home, no trailer houses or modular homes and the HOA dues are only $700 annually. 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. Durango Regional Airport is approximately an hour away serving non-stop service to Dallas/Ft Worth, Denver, Phoenix and summer flights to Los Angeles. Pagosa Springs/Archuleta County Airport has a wonderful jet-capable airport for private or charter planes. Call today for a qualified showing. Co brokers welcome.
