REDUCED: The 133 acre Jackson Creek Ranch features Echo Lake State Park frontage and extraordinary views of the surrounding jagged peaks of the San Juan Mountains, all within minutes from Pagosa Springs.
Located in the heart of the Pagosa Valley, the ranch consists of old-growth ponderosa pines and lush irrigated meadows. Currently used for hay production and cattle grazing, the property is unencumbered by conservation easements and can be reconfigured in a variety of ways that take advantage of its scenic, recreational and agricultural potential. The ranch shares its western boundary with an exclusive gated community and is accessed via an all season road off Highway 84.
A modest three bed, three bath ranch home, historic barn and outbuildings are the only improvements. The home will serve as a comfortable guest house and place to stay during construction of a more contemporary owner's residence.
Jackson Creek Ranch sits in what is locally known as the Echo Canyon area of the great Pagosa Valley. The property is bound by Echo Lake State Park to the north, and along its western and southern borders by Echo Canyon Ranch - an exclusive gated ranch community. Echo Canyon Ranch is a 1,397± acre covenanted ranch-style development comprised of high-end homes sited on large land parcels. The development offers private geothermal hot springs, a riding arena and trails, as well as a common greenbelt area. Jackson Creek shares frontage with Highway 84 along its eastern boundary. Three additional parcels totaling 22± acres and located directly across the highway are included in this sale. This area of the valley is popular with horse owners and many of the neighbors qualify as smaller, ranch-style equine properties.
Pagosa Springs is well-known for its geothermal hot springs and rich cultural history. The scenic downtown is complimented by hot springs resorts and spas along the banks of the San Juan River. The community is home to modern health care facilities and takes pride in the academic quality of its public and private schools. Pagosa Springs is the county seat of Archuleta County and is home to roughly 1,700 residents. Encompassing 1,364 square miles, Archuleta County's total current population is estimated at just over 12,000. The San Juan National Forest consists of 1,869,931± acres and comprises nearly 50% of Archuleta County. Archuleta County is home to the East and West Forks of the San Juan, San Juan, Piedra and Navajo rivers, and numerous streams and reservoirs provide additional angling opportunities. Just 23 miles from downtown is the Wolf Creek Ski Area, a phenomenal ski resort with an annual average snowfall of 465 inches. These mountains and rivers are uncrowded and offer some of Colorado's finest recreational activities - all within minutes of Jackson Creek Ranch.
The Stevens Field Airport is 12 miles from the ranch and offers an 8,100 x 100 foot runway and new FBO facilities offering a full range of services and amenities. The Durango-La Plata County Airport is an hour's drive to the west of Pagosa and provides commercial jet service with direct flights to Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver and Phoenix.
