Melby Ranch

Melby Ranch, Wild Horse Mesa

One of the most beautiful areas of Southern Colorado.



Fantastic opportunity in one of the most beautiful remote areas of Colorado adjacent to Lake Sanchez. This package includes a 67 gpm municipal water right and well, cultivation fields, more than 120 individual buildable (not contiguous) home lots, and infrastructure including a community center/firehouse, 2-mile grass runway, a full residence, and 55 acres and office below the mesa on State Hwy 159.

Beautiful Lake Sanchez is a stunning backdrop and a fishing destination for northern pike, walleye, trout, yellow perch and catfish. The lake is also home to ducks, geese, loons, grebes, and shore birds, including passerines and swallows. Protecting this wild serenity on the east side of the lake is the Lake Sanchez State wildlife area. Wild horses and elk run free on the Mesa! Also mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, small game, birds, eagles, black bears, mountain lions and bighorn sheep.

The Wild Horse Mesa/Melby Ranch community lies at 8,500 feet elevation and about 25 minutes from the historic and picturesque of San Luis. The Mesa spans about 20 square miles of spectacular vistas, both level and hilly with varied eco-regions including sagebrush and rabbitbrush (chamisa), pinon, juniper, grasses and wildflowers. Some of the larger holdings are appropriate and eligible for subdivision, especially the 60-acre+- Lake Sanchez Estates, a lakeview parcel close to water and electricity.

Other buildable parcels vary in size from 1 to 35+ acres with 90+ lots 2-3 acres in size. Lots located in up to 15 subdivisions, some with protective covenants. Lots are both on- and off- grid parcels and located in all regions of the community. The installed water system extends about 6 miles through the community and plans are available for extension.

This is an opportunity to build the sustainable community of the future! Contact listing agents for full details on this amazing opportunity. Annual taxes is a rough estimate and subject to verification.
