Excellent Seller Financing Available. Priced at market but place a bid and it could be yours! Absolutely the most coveted piece of developable land left at Vallecito Reservoir. Those who know have been waiting for this lush Golden Forest parcel to hit the market. Approximately 38 acres of meadowland with a large pond and Lost Creek flowing through. This parcel has a shared well PLUS Senior Water Rights that are some of the very first deeded water rights above Vallecito (@ 3CFS for irrigation). That is 662 Million Gallons per year. The land abuts the Lakelands Fence. There is substantial paved road frontage and easements all the way to Bureau of Reclamation land that extends to the north shore of the lake. With mountain and lake views, this is an ideal resort location. This parcel has had many ideas for development from a Bavarian style village of 42 shops combined with workforce housing, to a 9-hole golf course!

This long time owner is retiring and will consider all offers.
