Costilla County has adopted a new land use code which will make them more in compliance with other counties in Colorado.  Although this land is cheap, the usage of it is controlled by the county which means you must have proper permits to build, to change the land, to install a septic system, etc.  You can camp on the land and use it as a stepping off point for all the great recreational activities in this area, or you can build, but please consult the county for the rules and regulations regarding use of the land and permits required.
.
 We also need to mention that although Colorado has legalized small amounts of marijuana for personal use, the state has  determined that for personal use, you can not have more than 6 plants and they must be grown inside the house in a room that can be locked if there are children.  You cannot grow marijuana plants outside in this high elevation Valley - the atmosphere, the cool nights, the lack of precipitation, and many other factors would not be conducive.  
 

 

While you are purchasing land from us, we do not allow building projects, living on the land, or storing of equipment, supplies, or vehicles.  We do allow short-term camping.  All county Rules and Regulations must be followed regarding camping and permitting.  If you get our permission, you can put in a driveway and/or camping pad, with a permit from the county.  There might be a few exceptions, such as keeping a fire-pit on the property which we can allow on an individual basis.

Sangre de Cristo Ranches, Unit C-2, Block 189, Lot 3454--5.07 acres. Cash  or Fastpay price is $5,900 requiring $2,000 down and $200 a month for 15 months.  Financed price is $6,600 with $1,600 down and $167 per month for 30 months. 

Located in a primo area for views with privacy, this parcel slopes gently up from the road and with a commanding view of the surrounding area.  There are some mature trees and some high bushes on the property as well as native vegetation.  A driveway and a camping pad can be put in for $500 to $1,000 and would make this an ideal camping spot or lead to a building site later.  We previously listed this on our price sheet at $1,000 more, but are motivated to sell this in 2015.  On the map below with GPS coordinates, they could be up to 10' off since we estimate them using Google Earth and the county GIS maps. The edges of the property are marked with blaze along McLaughlin

Blanca Town Lots - 50'x140'- Two for $1,800.

All lots are north of 14th Street and between Savage and Weaver Avenue. The town requires a minimum of two lots to build a residence.

For the investor: If all remaining town lots are purchased, the price is $500 per 50' x 140' Lot. Some lots are already reserved - see the MAP.  Parcels with yellow X's through them are sold.  As stated, you must buy TWO adjacent to qualify for sewer and water hook-up.

Sangre De Cristo Estates - Alamosa County; Lot 4, Block 9, Unit 18  -- 5 Acres -- $4,100 Cash or $4,500 with financing requiring $1,500 down and payments of $132 for 24 months

From the SDCE area, there are great mountain views toward the Mt. Blanca Massive, the northern Sangre De Cristo Range, including the four 14,000’+ peaks around Crestone.  There is great trout fishing in San Luis Lakes, about 20 minutes away.  It is a forty minute drive to the Rio Grande National Forest and the San Isabel National Forest. It is less than 30 minutes to the Entrance Gate of the Sand Dunes National Park. There are three hot springs pools, open to the public, within a 30-minute drive. 

 

The Sangre De Cristo Estates are a residential ranch development located a 15 minute drive north of Alamosa, Colorado.  This area is west of Colorado Highway 17, and north of Stanley Road which is a paved road, but the development roads are usually unpaved, although maintained well by Alamosa County.  In July 2005, Wolfgang counted over 40 houses in the development, most of them built in the last 5 years. This subdivision uses individual wells and septic systems. Permits for both are available and well depth are typically 110’.  This is an excellent parcel for solar. Alamosa County utilizes the standard building codes and encourages regular types of housing with less inclination to approve alternative types of homes. 

 

The local realtors have parcels listed in this area in the $4,500 price-range, so this is a bargain.

Sold Mike P. -- Pueblo, CO   9/1/15 

Rio Cucharas Phase 2, Lot 628, 3.03 Acres---$4,900 Cash or $5,500  with our financing with $ 2,000 down  followed by $126 for 30  month

 This lot is located in Huerfano County near the town of Walsenburg.  Walsenburg is located off Interstate 25, about 90 miles south of Colorado Springs. This parcel has a gentle down slope, and has pinon and cedar trees. The elevation is 5,800'. There is a nice mountain view toward the west and south.  The parcel is located just a few miles north of Walsenburg and I-25. Property can be used for camping or to build a cabin or retirement home. Power is about 1/2 mile away, and many people living in Rio Cucharas use solar panels. Well permits are available but since the wells can cost more than the land, people will often use tanks or cisterns and haul their water.  Waste disposal is by septic.  When visiting with an RV, people will usually fill their water tank(s) and dump their waste at a nearby station. Walsenburg has hardware stores, lumber yards, a Safeway grocery store, restaurants, and a lot of antique and "junque" stores in the city.  There is a glimpse of the famous Spanish Peaks from the parcel, but you see more of it from a bit higher and when driving in this area.   There are low growing pinon trees in the sandy soil.  This parcel features it's own Arroyo and would be accessible all year. 

 

 

Directions:  From Interstate 25, take Exit #52 and then turn right immediately after the Taco Bell and the Big Truck Stop and Convenience store which is Colorado Hwy 69 . Zero odometer as you turn right.  Head west and north-west on Colorado Hwy 69.   At odometer 3.1+ , take a left on County Rd. 504 and meander south-west for almost two miles. Near odometer 5.1, bear to the left.   This is still County Rd 504 but also marked as Calle Vidal.  Follow it until you come to a road sign “Cello Azui Dr.".  Zero odometer as you turn right.  After odometer 0.2, watch for overgrown road on your right ( Pica Del Questa)and stop vehicle.  Property is on your left and towards the south.  Consult Aerial Plat map for boundaries of Lot 628.

Coming from the west or after passing through Walsenburg, turn north on road immediately east of the Rio Cucharas Inn.  Zero odometer as you turn off US160.  Go north for 1.1 miles and then take the road to the left and after a couple hundred yards, take the right fork. This is La Deodora Rd.  Pass Mosca, Cheyenne, Faris, Culebra, La Sierra and Monte Negro.  Around odometer 3.6, start the big curve to the right.  There are two real nice homes in the trees to the right of the big curve. There also is a power line heading toward the east. Near odometer 5.2, turn left and go another 1/4 mile to the overgrown road called Pico Del Questa going uphill. Lot 628 will be downwhill on your right.  Lot has access from Calle Azui toward the arroyo (gulley).

 If you have a GPS set the following coordinates to go to this lot: 37. 6510; -104.8555
