309 Gold Mountain Trail, Ridgway, Colorado, 81432
Come to Ouray and see this rare parcel located just south of Lake Lenore. The seller has worked hard to establish an exclusive enclave of three home sites, locate on what is known famously as Jackass Flats because it was the place where the mules and donkeys that hauled ore at the mines were stabled. The location is perfect, because it's very close to town without dealing with steep dangerous roads. Access is off of CR 14, which leads from highway 550 about 2 miles north of Downtown Ouray. From here you pass Lake Lenore, and continue to the Batchelor Syracuse Mine. After leaving its entrance the road literally passes through the horse stables, and continues directly south for roughly 1/2 mile to a locked gate, which is just before this parcel. It is treed with large spruce and fir trees, and an access road leads to several fine building sites. Electric has been brought to the lots, a well permit is set so that you can drill a well, and the County has issued a development permit. While the land is sloped, it's not especially steep, and it's perfect for a fine home or cabin with huge views down Valley toward Ouray, and toward the Sneffels Range. You'll love its larger, 17 +/- acre size, proximity to Ouray, and its remoteness and tremendous views! Please note that there is another parcel, located just a few hundred yards west of this property--it's extremely unique and features many incredible building sites.
