Why You’ll Love It
Close to town, secluded, lots of wildlife, great views, good hay production
The Mahaffey Ranch offers a beautiful combination of assets for the buyer seeking a relaxed Colorado lifestyle with real ranching capability. Situated just a couple of miles east of Crawford, Colorado, in the southwest part of the state, the Mahaffey Ranch offers complete seclusion and privacy, yet it is very accessible and close to town. The improvements are very excellent, with a 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath custom home built in 2008.
The ranch has a total of 142 acres, approximately 70 of which are irrigated hay meadows. The balance is a pleasing mixture of draws, woods, and sub-irrigated meadows that make for excellent horse pastures. Irrigation water is provided by the Daisy Ditch as well as 75 shares of Smith Fork Project water, and water is delivered primarily by gated pipe. Domestic water is provided by the Deutsch Domestic Water Company. Most of the fences on the property are new, with good pipe fence surrounding the ranch home. The views from the property are simply some of the best in all of Colorado, with stunning vistas of the West Elk Mountains and Needle Rock. Several of the horse pastures have frost-free horse waterers extended to them. A spring-fed pond on the property stays consistently full.
This small cattle ranch has a very nice custom-built 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath home with a 4,338-foot floorplan. The home has custom finishes, such as oak plank flooring; sandstone gas fireplace; vaulted ceilings; spacious master suite with 5-piece master bath with jetted tub and huge walk-in closets; quality kitchen appliances; granite countertops and hickory cabinets; knotty alder doors and trim; two offices; and 3-car detached garage. The main body of the home has the master suite, two offices, and two bedrooms sharing a jack-and-jill bath, plus a powder room off the entry. Above the garage is a spacious 1,016-square-foot caretaker or mother-in-law apartment with two bedrooms, ¾ bath, a large living area, and kitchenette. Adjacent to the home is a 24×24 metal Cleary building with concrete floor, plus a 24×32 horse barn with overhanging horse shelters and 4 individual paddocks with frost-free waterers. Heat is supplied by geothermal loops buried deep underneath the earth near the house.
This property was originally platted for a subdivision of 4 35-acre lots. Water lines and underground power lines complete with transformers were installed, and the main road into the property is a subdivision-quality gravel road. It makes sense to keep the home and improvements on a 60-70-acre lot, but it would be easy to subdivide two other 35-acre lots that wouldn’t be visible from the main home. The property comes with a total of 4 Deutsch Domestic Water Company taps.
Lots of wildlife and excellent hunting in Colorado GMU 53—turkey, mule deer, elk
This ranch is home to lots of wildlife—mule deer and wild turkey, in particular. Elk are known to winter on the property, and it hosts all kinds of raptors, songbirds, and small predators such as coyotes and bobcats. Bear and mountain lion occasionally wander through the property. Colorado GMU 53 is known for excellent mule deer hunting, and this property has lots of deer.
The north fork valley has seen recent installation of high-speed fiber optic internet, and this ranch has it. Not only do you have phenomenal views, seclusion, a gorgeous home, the download speeds available to this property can be as high as 180 mb/s, some of the highest speeds on the Western Slope. Work and play from home on this Colorado horse and cattle property for sale.
