Wheeler Ranch Land, 39764 County Road #44, Steamboat Springs CO 80487
Own a piece of Routt County History with this 70.99 acres 9 miles from Steamboat! This land was part of the Wheeler Ranch, where they were famous for their quarter horses. For close to 90 years the Wheelers supplied most of the horses for the famous Winter Carnival Street Events every February in Downtown Steamboat Springs. Cows and horses grazed this land for generations and the 100-year-old Falrplay Schoolhouse taught all the kids from all the lower Elk River ranches for decades! There are several outbuildings on the property, and the views to the Ski Area and the Park Range are unbelievable! Elk deer and grouse frequent this area, and hunting is allowed from your own land!
The schoolhouse was remodeled in the early 70’s and made habitable, but now is in a state of ‘deferred maintenance’. There is a building envelope within which a new home can be built!
A ‘historic’ water right is under current review, which could serve this land.
An adjoining 40 acres is available at $320,000.
