Mountains, dirt roads, wild horses, mule deer & a remote location? it's all here and sitting atop the Wild Horse Mesa! A large house pad area has already been scraped out. The area around it is open enough, but otherwise, this large parcel is heavily wooded in juniper and pinyon pine. Evidence of horses and mule deer are to be found here and there as you meander this property. The mountain views would be more extreme if you were to hike back & on into the trees. If the buyer wants to build, maybe the removal of a tree or more would be necessary to get that grand view from the ground level of your home. This pristine piece of Colorado is off-the-grid! The buyer, if building, would want to put in a septic and a solar energy system. Gas would be via a propane tank. It is recommended that Mesa residents use 4 wheel drive vehicles during the melt. If you decide to tour this property, bring your hiking boots because it'll take you a very pleasant while! If you are feeling less adventurous, you can drive by and get a really good feel for the property as well. Note from the photos that Big Buck Trail cuts through the corner of this property. In other words, you could put your drive way in anywhere along there and save some money. Elevation: just over 9000 ft. According to owner this is the "exception tract" of Melby Ranch as it is the original water source for the ranch dating all the way back to native Indian occupation and that it has plenty of water for a residence.
