560 acres of comfort, tranquility, and privacy best describe the Burnt River Ranch, which boasts numerous springs, canyons, ponds, grasslands, mountain views, hunting opportunities, and a wonderful family ranch home conveniently located within 25 minutes of Pueblo. The Burnt River Ranch has all the desired elements for the discriminating owner who seeks the rural Colorado lifestyle, while also being near great amenities.
Situated in southern Colorado, the Burnt River Ranch is located approximately 25 minutes southwest of Pueblo, and northeast of the Wet Mountain Range. It is composed of 560 contiguous acres of gently rolling prairie and trees that are bisected by a beautiful canyon that hosts several springs and seeps. Several ponds and riparian areas can be found throughout the ranch, and the southern boundary of the ranch lies just to the north of the Saint Charles River.
The ranch is easily accessed via county-maintained roads and is conveniently located a just few miles west of Interstate 25.
Improvements include a beautiful 3,500 square foot custom home, a large shop, and a custom-built horse barn with tack room, hay storage, and greenhouse. The ranch is perimeter fenced and boasts a generous amount of horse safe wood and steel fencing.
The area most generally experiences mild winters and summers, with low humidity conditions, and 300+ days of Colorado sunshine per year.
The Burnt River Ranch is home to several big game species which include elk, mule deer, and pronghorn. The ranch is located within Colorado Game Management Unit 84, which allows for potential landowner hunting vouchers for up to all three of those species.
The ranch also provides for some remarkable bird hunting opportunities which include quail, dove, ducks, and geese. The combination of prairie grasslands bisected by a canyon, combined with several springs, seeps, and ponds, creates some fantastic wildlife habitat.
The ranch is currently being utilized for cattle grazing, hunting, and horseback and ATV riding. Most years provide for adequate grazing for approximately 50 head of cattle over the summer, or approximately 25 head throughout the year. There is currently a month-to-month cattle grazing lease in place with a neighboring ranch owner.
The Burnt River Ranch has considerable conservation values including wildlife habitat, riparian areas, productive ranchland, and scenic and open space values. Most properties that border the ranch have already been encumbered by conservation easements, highlighting the spectacular qualities of the area.
