Off the beaten path and ON THE EASTDALE RESERVOIR?! You betcha! After last year's drought, the reservoir is very low (as seen in the photos here.) But with recent snowfalls, it's sure to be pretty again! At an incredible 67 acres, this is a very large parcel. No neighbors will ever be able to build on top of you! The road is unnamed and the first part off the main road is a little bumpy. To visit this property, you'll want to be in an SUV. The road gets better after that first stretch. Located just about 3 miles from the New Mexico border (as the crow flies), you'll relish the fact that it's ever so easy to drop down into New Mexico and visit Taos, the Red River Ski Area or drive a little further to Santa Fe or Albuquerque. History and adventure also await you to the North because you're not too far outside of San Luis, the oldest town in Colorado and home to the Stations of the Cross. Then there's the Fort Garland Museum, the Great Sand Dunes National Park and multiple Wildlife areas like the Monte Vista National Wildlife Refuge and the Blanca Wetlands (just to name a couple.) This property is off the grid, meaning that if the new owner wants to build on it, they will want to drill for a well, install a septic and install a solar energy system. Of course, retreat and camping are ok too! No building requirements or timelines to be concerned with at all.
