0 WHM SEC D BLK 33 LOT 10 MESA Drive San
This is a very special lot combining views, electricity, access, and many aesthetic qualities. These photos do not do it justice. The land has beautiful tree coverage of pi on pines and also open spaces with expansive views of the San Luis Valley and the distant San Juans. The lot is on a slight rise for views and build-ability. The modest terrain of the lot makes it aesthetically appealing. Electricity is across the road. The lot has good access to the Mesa and the community well, and is also a straight shot 7 minutes or less to Hwy 159 the road to San Luis and Taos. Neighboring properties are not developed and the area is private, quiet, and serene. The property qualifies for an in-house use well permit from the Colorado Division of Water Resources, but residents rely on water delivered to a cistern with water provided by the community well operated by the Little Norway Water Company. Wildhorse Mesa is a wild, remote residential community with ample quiet and privacy. The small tight-knit community of year-round and part-year residents work together while letting each resident have the space they need. A focal point of the area is Lake Sanchez with the Lake Sanchez State wildlife area to the east a site for fishing. For this lot fishing is also 7 minutes away at the Sanchez Stabilization Reservoir on Hwy 159. A herd of wild horses runs free on the Mesa and sitings of small bands will be frequent at this lot. Also mule deer, elk, pronghorn antelope, coyotes, small game, birds, eagles, black bears, mountain lions and bighorn sheep are present on the mesa. The Wild Horse Mesa/Melby Ranch community lies at 8,000+ feet elevation and about 25 minutes from the historic and picturesque of San Luis. About 1 hour 15 minutes to Taos for shopping, dining, and cultural events. Stargazing is world class; views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains are breathtaking!
