• 35 acre parcel in the U Lazy U Subdivision -  10 miles east of Alamosa
  • 42 acre parcel in Alamosa County at U.S. 160 and Rd. 122

In Colorado, large parcels over 35 acres get special well permits that allow for some irrigation.   Larger parcels allow for real ranch style living. Usually, there are no covenants governing these larger lots, and a more rural lifestyle is possible.

U Lazy U 2, Parcel 10, 35 Acres - $12,600 Cash or Fast-Pay.  Our Fast- Pay requires $5,600 down and $291.67/month for 24 months. The financed price is $14,000 and requires $4,000 down and $166.67 for 60 months.  NO INTEREST for either option!

This property is located in Alamosa County, 18 miles east of  the town of Alamosa.  It is 15 degrees cooler than in Denver, and humidity is always low.  The area has few job opportunities and we recommend that buyers have an independent income-stream.  Short term camping on the land is allowed during the term of the loan, but before any major projects or full time living, we do require the property to be paid in full.  We will permit a driveway, a building pad, starting the well and septic system. 

Alamosa has a first class hospital, Wal-Mart, Safeway and Kroger's plus a Walgreens.  Alamosa County encourages alternative construction such as earthship, rammed-earth or strawbale homes.  This 35-acre parcel qualifies for a regular well-permit and a 15-gallon per minute well.  Water can be used for a 1-acre garden, livestock (no cattle or pigs, due to residential zoning) and to water trees, flowers and other domestic use.

Directions:  From Ft. Garland, head west on U.S. Hwy 160 for 12 miles.   After passing the Colorado Hwy 150 Sand Dunes exit, look for Alamosa County Road 122 on your left.  Turn there, head south for almost 2.5 miles.  After crossing the railroad tracks, turn left.  After a few hundred feet, turn right on Alma.  Take the next right on Sanford.  Zero odometer and continue on Sanford for 2.6 miles, until Sanford dead-ends into Durango.  Turn right on Durango and continue to the two corner posts a few nundred yards away.  Look at the attached maps for details of U Lazy U 2 Parcel 10.

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.

ALAMOSA COUNTY 

U Lazy U Parcel M  Reserved for Matt & Merinda, February 14,  2014

  Cash Price: $12,960.  Financed with $4,000 down and $210 for 48 months.  We can also do a larger downpayment and quarterly payments

Although this parcel is 35 acres -- it is much closer to electricity than the 40 acre parcels.

Seven years ago, Wolfgang developed the ULazyU Ranches in Alamosa County. Rodger Johnson put in a single road about 2 miles long with 40-acre parcels on each side of the road. All these parcels were surveyed and staked by Bill Kitterman of Rincon Surveying in Alamosa. The plat map was recorded and is available from the Assessor's Office.  All the 40 acre parcels are now sold.

In the past we sold these for $18,000 cash, or $20,000 financed. We lowered the price of the remaining units in the summer of 2011 and have Parcel M left and lowered the price on it again. 

.

Directions: From Ft. Garland, head west on US 160 through Blanca and past the Sand Dunes Turnoff (CO 150). (From Alamosa, head east on US 160, then proceed as follows.) Two miles west of CO 150 at mile marker 246, turn south on Rd 122. Drive for almost 3 miles. Cross railroad track and then turn right. Zero odometer as you turn right. After odometer turns over 2.2 miles, turn left at ULazyU sign. Zero odometer as you turn into the ULazyU Ranches. As odometer turns over 0.1, you should be passing a tree stump entrance (if it has not fallen down.) That is the beginning of Lot M and it will be on your left. That lot is 900' from power. When odometer turns over 0.4, the start of the 40.44 Acre Parcel L will be on your right. That parcel will go for more than 0.25 miles to the south and will go a few hundred feet past odometer 0.6. To look at the third lot -- Parcel L -- it will start on your left near odometer 1.1 and will extend for a few hundred feet past odometer 1.3

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.  You can shop in Alamosa where there is a WalMart, a Safeway, a City Market, plus a Walgreens, many restaurants, a small college, and places to work.  There is a regional airport in Alamosa.   
.. 
All of these lots were surveyed four years ago and markers show the corners. A 40 acre lot is roughly 1/4 mile x 1/4 mile in size. 1/4 mile is 1,320'.
