Andorra Ranch, Gardner
ABOUT THE LISTING
The Andorra Ranch offers the opportunity to own a piece of history, exceptional hunting and cattle ranch all wrapped together into one of the finest ranch holdings available in this region. Situated in the mild climate of the Huerfano River valley, the dramatic Sangre De Cristo mountain range to the West provides a stunning setting. The ranch has over 4,500 acres comprised of 3,809 deeded acres, 640 acres of state lease, and 80 acres of BLM. Boasting over two miles of the Huerfano River along with 200 irrigated acres provides ample water for big game and cattle. Water is the lifeblood of the American Southwest, along with the Huerfano River there is Oak Creek as well as Yellowstone Creek traversing the landscape along with other springs and ponds creating a wildlife haven. Hunting on the Andorra Ranch is second to none. Wildlife thrives here with an abundance of elk, deer, antelope and turkey. Rocky mountain bighorn sheep also call the ranch home, living in the rocky crags of the pinion hills located on the Eastern flank of the Ranch. The Taos Mountain Trail was the historic pathway for trade and business exchanges between Taos in New Mexico and the Great Plains of Colorado from 1100 A.D. through the time of the European and American presence. The historic Taos Trail traverses the ranch leaving the Huerfano Valley following Oak Creek South and West towards New Mexico. There is a very nice but modest home adorning the property providing the new owner the flexibility to improve the ranch as they see fit. Explore all that this stunning ranch has to offer in beautiful Southern Colorado.
