308 Happy Trail, Montrose, Colorado, 81403
Happy Trail! How can you beat living on a road named Happy Trail? The fact is that you'll totally fall in love with this beautiful 40 acre mountain view parcel, located just 15 minutes south of the Target and Starbucks in Montrose. It’s a perfect combination of level pasture, rocky ridges and tree covered terrain-yet only ½ mile off of Governments Springs Road, which leads to the Cornerstone Golf Community. The 6800 ft elevation makes the summers not so warm and allows a bit more oxygen, allowing you to enjoy your Colorado home as much as the deer that will become your friends. Access is easy, since the main road is beautifully paved and the gravel road from here into the property is in excellent condition. There are no restrictive covenants, as well as no HOA that would otherwise limit your enjoyment of your property. Bring your ATV, your pets, your projects. Friends will be able to visit for extended periods in their RVs, and the style of structure you eventually place on the property will be determined by you. This makes it a perfect location for a weekend escape, seasonal retreat or year round home. You’ll see that many high end homes have been built in the area, so this can be your place to enjoy while you plan your dream home. Conventional electric service is nearby, and most permanent residents have put in good wells. Green design would allow for solar electric and even grid tie systems, and many choices exist for heating. The soils are dig-able and work nicely for conventional septic systems. There are two approaches to the property-one, directly off of Happy Trail has a lower portion that's flat and beautiful. That part takes up roughly half the property and already has a clearing shown in the shots. The other part is accessed using a nicely developed access road that is located along the south edge of the property and leads to a magnificent ridge with impressive mountain views all around and vistas across the deer playground down below. You decide which works best for you--maybe the answer is both! Make your plans to come to Southwest Colorado and make this fine 40 acre parcel of land your own!
