This is the creme de la creme of lot opportunities on the mesa! Private, gorgeous 37-acre lot in Melby Ranch with views and direct runway access! Known as Tract J, this lot is at the top end of the runway (southwest end) with good access via a public road bordering and a private road running through. The road running from Lonesome Dove to the runway is private and part of the property, with property corner markers on the far side of the road. The land has beautiful tree coverage of piñon pines and also open spaces with gorgeous mountain views could create natural building sites at the eastern corner. At present the runway is not in regular use. Neighboring properties are not developed and the area is private, quiet, and serene. The land is well-located within the community, about 2 miles to Wildhorse Drive, the main road that accesses the community well, Lake Sanchez, San Luis, and the road to Taos. The property qualifies for a domestic use well permit from the Colorado Division of Water Resources, but most residents rely on water delivered to a cistern and provided by the community well operated by the Little Norway Water Company. Wildhorse Mesa is a wild, remote residential community with ample quiet and privacy. The small tight-knit community of year-round and part-year residents work together while letting each resident have the space they need. On the East side of Lake Sanchez is the Lake Sanchez State wildlife area, a site for fishing. Wild horses and elk run free on the Mesa! Also mule deer, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, small game, birds, eagles, black bears, mountain lions and bighorn sheep. The Wild Horse Mesa/Melby Ranch community lies at 8,000+ feet elevation and about 25 minutes from the historic and picturesque of San Luis. About 1 hour 15 minutes to Taos for shopping, dining, and cultural events. Stargazing is world class; views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are breathtaking! Cell phone service is variable by location, internet is satellite.
