Attention hunters, fishers, and nature lovers: this is a rare listing of two adjoining 5-acre lots in the heart of the San Luis Valley. This 10-acre property sits at 7850' in elevation and comes with 360 views of the Sangre De Cristo Mountains! This lot is being sold as two parcels; Costilla County permits one single-family residence per parcel. Septic would be required to build and these lots qualify for a household use-only well permit. Solar power would likely be the most cost-effective option for electricity. This property is near the Smith Reservoir & State Wildlife Area; a 14,000+ sq acre-ft reservoir that permits fishing, boating (motorized & non-motorized permitted), and camping. The Smith Reservoir State Wildlife Area is a highlight for bird watchers as you will likely spot terns, gulls, hawks, herons, ducks, and geese! The San Luis Valley is on the route for Sandhill Cranes and other migratory birds- each March you can view these amazing creatures and experience the Crane Festival! Smith Reservoir is also known for its stellar ice fishing when the water freezes, although licensed anglers will have great chances of catching several species of stocked trout year-round. The unobstructed, majestic, million-dollar views of Mt Blanca are remarkable and most appreciated in person! Mt Blanca is the tallest peak in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains, a sub-range of the Rockies. This property is accessible off Hwy 160 making it easily accessible year-round and beyond that, accessible by a low-clearance 2WD vehicle year-round. Approximate center GPS coordinates: 37.32779, -105.50836
