This 35 acre parcel is located just inside
the Alamosa County Line, about 15 miles east of Alamosa and about 8 miles west from the little town of Blanca. The parcel
is flat with native grasses and shrubs. 35 Acre and larger parcels in our area qualify for a regular well permit for a 15 gallon
per minute well. These wells allow for watering a 1 acre garden, flowers and trees, small livestock and for domestic water
for a home or cabin. Wells in this area will cost about $8,500. This parcel is not suited for farming.
Alamosa has a
population of 13,000 people . It has a Wal-Mart, Safeway, Kroger’s, a Walgreen, several lumber yards and a good Medical
Center and Hospital. The nearest year-round neighbor is about 0.6 miles to the north. People in this area will typically have
solar power, a septic system, and a propane tank. Because
there are no utilities in this area, people use solar and propane for heating and appliances. We estimate the cost of
setting up will include: Well - $8,500, Septic System - $5,500; 1,000 watt Solar system - $4,000 or $14,000 for a 500 watt
system; $4,000 to fence 5 acres, and $6,000 for a barn. All those costs are approximate but should be added to the cost
of a home. There are few good jobs in our area, and we recommend that people who plan to live in our area have
a pension income or work in sales, trucking. We do require the property to be paid in full before you can move on to it or
build. A Second parcel is also available below -- scroll down for Parcel 10 which is

This area is NOT suitable for farming. You
can get a well permit, and dig a well- then water some trees, plow some dirt and make a garden, you can also have
some small livestock inside fences. You get cool temperatures at this elevation at night so the growing season
is short. You have to live on the property and water trees regularly to get them started. We've seen antelope,
rabbits, small foxes, and other little dessert critters in this area. The soil is pretty sandy, so you might need to
enrich it for your garden. You can have a mobilehome that is not older than 1976, but check with Alamosa County to start
a building project. They follow standardized rules and regs concerning building permits and improvements. There
is a small college and a regional airport in Alamosa.
U Lazy U 2, Parcel 10 - $10,000 Cash or $11,000 financed requiring
$4,000 down and 35 payments of $200. We don't charge any closing costs or hidden fees.
All of the information above concerning Parcel 1 is applicable to this parcel. It is located 2 miles further
south and would take longer to access from Highway 160. Views and terrain of the area are very similar to what we are
showing. We can furnish directions but Parcel 10 is on the above map of the subdivision. Wolfgang platted this area
about 10 years ago and all the corners were surveyed and marked originally. As noted above, we don't allow our buyers
to build or live on the property until it is paid in full.
