About 000 Ponderosa Pine Drive
This 35-acre, ag-zoned parcel will make an outstanding future home site for a buyer seeking privacy, wildlife, outdoor adventure, and public-land access. Located inside a secure, gated area on the edge of the San Isabel National Forest, this property offers an end-of-road location in a forested environment, with easy, year-round access. The property has ample buildable space for a home, guest home, barn, and other outbuildings, and comes with an unmatched sense of adventure. A scenic canyon, with dramatic rock formations, crosses the property, and carries an occasional stream. The property continues past the canyon, with a landscape defined by abundant pines, game trails, and a rolling topography. Ownership comes with usage rights to a private access point for the San Isabel National Forest. Forest access in this area is for landowners only. With that lack of public pressure, game populations thrive, with deer, elk, and wild turkey on this parcel frequently. The property is inside GMU 84, a favorite of hunters and professional guides. For horsemen, this parcel has great potential as a horse property; saddle up, ride to the forest gate, and have thousands of acres to yourself. Underground utilities [power, phone, wired internet (not satellite)] are at the property line. The parcel meets the acreage requirement for a domestic well permit, allowing for household use, watering livestock, and limited irrigation. Neighboring wells are on record as producing an impressive 10-11 gpm. A well contractor estimates that water will be hit at 285 feet. If you choose to build, a primary home must be at least 1,600sf; manufactured/mobile homes are not allowed; traffic-generating businesses are not allowed. For added peace of mind, the Red Creek Fire Department is just 8 miles away. The mountain village of Beulah is 10 miles south, Pueblo is 30 miles east, and the Colorado Springs airport is 73 miles north, generally just over a 1-hour drive.
