On this page, we are providing web exposure for other types of property for sale or rent, which excludes property in Costilla and Alamosa County.  We are not realtors!    We do not handle those listings, but promote them here for their owners for a fee.  We evaluate each request individually.  We normally will not showcase vacant property similar to what we are selling, but have been accepting homes, trailers, campers, condos, etc. that may be located in the area.

SDCR Unit U, Block 167, Lot 2825—This is a rare Sangre de Cristo Creek Lot.  Out of all of those lots we've bought or sold, only 30-some had water features and only five were along Sangre de Cristo Creek. This is the largest stream in Costilla County and such water properties are always hard to find.

Lot U.2825 is priced at $15,500. This is a great price for your own fishing hole.  Most of our streams are shallow and totally freeze over in the winter time and without deep holes to survive the winter the trout seldom get larger than 7-9 inches.  The headwaters of Sangre de Cristo Creek are at 9500’ in the La Veta Pass Area and even during droughts, this stream has a good flow rate.  We have a native trout called Rio Grande Cut Throat that occasionally is caught in this creek and it has a pink meat similar to the German Brown Trout.

 The owner bought this property from us 7 years ago and has fallen on hard times and the bank has threatened foreclosure. 

Directions: From Fort Garland head east on US 160 about 1.5 miles and turn left at “Trinchera Ranch” entrance. Head south for 1.1 miles and turn left at Beekman. Zero odometer as you turn at Beekman. Head east on Beekman and right after odometer 1.5, turn left on Boyd Rd.  Drive to Cul de sac and take the driveway into Lot U.2825.
