SOLD 204.92 +/- deeded acres plus 200 water shares in the Vermejo Conservancy District and a domestic water meter. This property has it all with plenty of Land in one big pasture ready for you to cross fence the way you want. There is an exterior boundary fence comprising conventional 4 and 5 strand barbed wire and steel T-posts with some wooden posts. There are three ponds on the property fed from irrigation water. There is a mixture of brome, western wheat grass, Jose wheat grass and some blue gramma. The area being farmed has traditionally had some alfalfa and oats. There is an area of Sudan grass also. The property slopes gently from west to east with an approximate elevation of 6,100 feet. The rainy season is typically mid June through September and in a normal year the property could expect about 16 inches of precipitation. This year the property has received some good early rains showing some good growth.
The property has received a two inch proration so far this season for irrigation purposes. That equates to a little under 34 acre feet of water. There is probably going to be an additional one inch proration. The 2014 base annual assessment for the irrigation shares is $13.68 per share payable in January and July. These have been some drought years but still there has been water. In the good years the maximum proration is up 18 inches per share. That equates to 300 acre feet of water, which is an abandant amount. The base monthly fee for the domestic water meter is $27.50.
There is an older home on the property which has been worked on by the seller and is in pretty good shape, needing a coat of paint and new kitchen and bathroom. The septic system is a permitted system. There is some new carpet and the home would make an excellent getaway for someone looking to escape to a far flung corner of the county to relax. The views are big in every direction and the whole property can be seen from the house almost. A wrap around porch would look good and the place could turn into a hunting cabin really quick. This property sits just off the Maxwell Wildlife Rufuge. It would be a good investment in land and water in the west, where even in some of these more drought prone years there has been water for irrigation. Seller to reserve half of minerals owned.
