Situated between Denver and Colorado Springs near the town of Larkspur, the ranch affords convenient access to amenities, but is unique in its seclusion, scenery and solitude. Located at the end of a private lane, the property opens to rolling pastures lined by meandering creeks and ponds that rise to the forested hillsides of the adjoining National Forest. A working ranch with historic water rights dating back to the 1870s, the surrounding West Plum Creek Valley is renown for its bucolic setting with historic ranches and equestrian estates set amidst towering buttes, hogbacks, grassy and oak brush hillsides. The Dakan Ranch is truly a unique opportunity for those seeking a ranch property with stunning scenery and proximity to Denver.

Conservation Value

The ranch is encumbered by a conservation easement with Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust which preserves the scenic, ecological, wildlife and agricultural resources while allowing construction of up to three single family residential dwellings with associated outbuildings.
