Turnkey properties close to town like Red Rocks Ranch are flying off the shelf in today’s market. Add in strong components of production and hunting, and you may have found one of the most compelling real estate opportunities in the Rocky Mountain region.
Located on the western edge of Glade Park just down the road from Grand Junction, Colorado, the Red Rocks Ranch offers a rare opportunity to own a ranch, farm, home, and wildlife mecca ready to go from day one.
A Compelling Opportunity
The Ranch: Equipped for Living & Production
The ranch headquarters are set along the tree-lined banks of Coates Creek at the base of large sandstone bluffs overlooking irrigated hayfields.
A beautiful, well-maintained 3,906 sq. ft., 3 bed, 3 bath log home is the perfect respite from civilization as you work remotely and enjoy the fresh air. This custom home offers an oversize master bedroom, walk-in closet, sauna, deck, and a kitchen with granite countertops and updated appliances. The property offers all the other improvements needed for a fine-tuned operation such as a 3 bed, 2 bath caretaker’s or guest home, barns, outbuildings, and working corrals. All farm equipment can be added into the sale.
An important feature for any productive ranch in the West, significant water rights provide irrigation to over 200 acres of alfalfa and native grasses which can produce up to 5 tons of hay per acre.
The Wildlife: Infinite Hunting Opportunities
Wildlife on the ranch is abundant! Trophy quality deer and elk along with turkeys and many other species of game and nongame animals alike are attracted to the hayfields and reliable water sources on the property.
Imagine waking up most mornings in the late summer and fall, and seeing 100-200 deer right out your kitchen window. While not as numerous as the deer, there are good numbers of elk, and 350″+ bulls have been documented on the ranch and surrounding public lands.
Located in Big Game Unit 40, famous for some of the best bucks and bulls in Colorado, the ranch qualifies for the Colorado Parks and Wildlife landowner preference program and generally is allocated one buck tag annually and one bull tag every other year.
The Location: Exclusive Recreation While Still Close to Town
Red Rocks Ranch is strategically located to allow the owners of the ranch and their guests direct access and use of thousands of acres of otherwise difficult to access public lands offering unlimited recreational opportunities.
The ranch is accessed by a beautiful 45 minute drive through the Colorado Monument from Grand Junction, Colorado. Grand Junction is western Colorado’s largest city and home to a regional airport, medical services, and all the conveniences of a mid-size city. The area is also known for its moderate year-round climate.
