The 478-acre property is set at 7300 feet among grassy hills, scattered ponderosa pine forests, and a central rock ridge line offering panoramic views of Pikes Peak. Although it has historically seen mostly cattle ranching, the Pikes View Ranch is an ideal candidate to become a readily-accessible, high-end equestrian ranch, conserved as a private wildlife sanctuary or subdivided into 35-acre parcels.The ranch is completely fenced into several pastures, and is currently used as a small cattle operation with well placed stock tanks and ponds. Water rights on the ranch have been adjudicated and are waiting to be utilized, as the ranch controls substantial subsurface water in multiple aquifers.Located in Douglas County, one of the fastest-growing counties in Colorado, the Pikes View Ranch is ideally located for an owner desiring a mid-sized personal retreat less than an hour from two major metropolitan areas, or a developer envisioning subdividing the property into smaller ranches catering to views. Mule deer, whitetail deer and elk are common on the ranch, and some may want to simply leave the property as it is for the benefit of these big game species.The Pikes View Ranch is easily-accessible year-round, located only about 8 miles east of Interstate 25, 38 miles from Denver and 24 miles from Colorado Springs. Such historic ranches located so close to Colorado's major urban centers are rare finds, indeed.
