LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION! We are talking the most spectacular unobstructed, south facing, spectacular views of the mountain ranges that surround Paonia and the North Fork Valley. The ranges include the Raggeds - 30 miles to the east, the West Elks - wild with bear and mountain lions and still little known, Mount Lamborn - magnificent summer home to the Navaho Indians, as well as, the gorgeous back drop to the Paonia valley, and finally the San Juans, some 60 miles to the south west, where mining towns like Ouray and ranching towns like Ridgway exist. 300 sunny days a year makes it perfect for a solar home, though electricity is available. The property overlooks the picture postcard of Pitkin Mesa farms and orchards and below that, the sweet town of Paonia less that 2 miles away. Quiet, private and secluded and yet close to town makes this property incredibly unique. We have breathtaking sunsets that illuminate Lamborn Mountain almost every evening. We call it the Pink Moment. You have never seen anything like it and this property has a front row seat to the vistas across the North Fork Valley and the gorgeous mountains that surround it. The property, 40 acres and set at an elevation of approximately 6100 feet, is heavily forested with cedars. There are numerous building sites to choose from; each with its own unique desirability. All secluded and all with million dollar views. Paonia is a community that has year-round festivals and world class recreation and activities in every direction; all less than a few hours away. Activities range from mountain and road biking to cross country skiing to fishing in gold medal waters to river rafting to the best of the best of organic farming, vineyards and orchards.
