This 106-acre parcel is situated just seven miles east of Collbran, Colorado, a small Western Colorado ranching community. At 7,100 feet in elevation, this land gets good snowfall in the winter and offers beautiful cool summer weather. It has very good water rights, with 2.77 cubic feet per second of the Galbraith Ditch and 51 acre feet of Vega Reservoir irrigation water for late-season irrigation. The irrigation system is served by an underground pipe and risers for pressurized wheel line sprinklers. Hay production can be excellent.
The property is already subdivided into 3 separate parcels of roughly 35 acres each. Each parcel could be used for a separate homesite or a country home, hobby farm, or small horse ranch. Each parcel is eligible to drill a well for domestic and livestock use, and power is right there on the county road. Access is easy from both Highway 330 and County Road 64 3/10, which heads north towards Buzzard Creek and Battlement Mesa.
