Located a short 25 minutes from Telluride Mountain Village, this +/- 2239 acres of the Beaver Mesa Livestock & Elk Ranch is so beautiful that it was selected by renown professional photographer John Fielder for some of its most photogenic views. The ranch is very well known in Telluride. Also the ranch is minutes from National Forest offering thousands of more acres of recreation. Just a great location. Being that the water out west is now held as the gold standard these days, there is 7 registered ponds, and the absolute best water rights out of the J&M Hughes Ditch (named after the original owner) that  irrigates over 1000 acres +/- of the Ranch and that is huge, there few ranches can compare and is one of the few last large family holdings remaining within 25 min of Telluride.  Priced tens of millions below comparable size ranches in the area, the Cattlemen’s Assoc Conservation Easement is very unique and different than most easements we see, There CAN BE development, there is also 3 separate building envelopes that would be ideal for that Yellowstone dream home & value is already factored in with +/- 200 acres of the ranch NOT enrolled and build whatever you like or sell off. Theres also an ability to sell off (a min of 500 acres) of the main ranch separately with a building envelope. Endless possibilities and again a very different easement that was well thought through call for all details. The conservation easement will allow you to own a much larger and much finer ranch than you normally could otherwise for far far less money.  Improvements include a comfortable & warm +/- 1200 sqft  3/2 ranch home that makes for great guest or caretaker quarters with a spring fed well in a aspen grove with jaw dropping views from every room showcasing the Telluride mountains, you could also live there while you build the dream home. With also views of the incredible little Cone mountain and is minutes to National Forest. Another option you could live in the home while you build. It has to been seen, smelled and felt to take it all in. An easy road system allows access throughout the ranch. There is also a 3000 foot airstrip in place, but not currently in use.  BGU 70 offers todays sportsman with over-the-counter rifle elk tags, and close to 100% draw for archery elk tags. Beaver Mesa Livestock and Elk has been documented as an excellent producer of both trophy quality elk and mule deer. The ranch sits in the natural migratory of the elk and deer where in May/June and the end of the year you can witness hundreds and hundreds of elk crossing the ranch and stopping at one of the many ponds and the abundance of new green grass and excellent bedding areas. If you have not been lucky enough to witness this, it's something special to see. The ranch is currently leased for hunting to an outstanding Outfitter and a cattle lease with 50K in income and could easily be more. The ranch has gorgeous aspens groves, allowing for deer, elk and turkey bedding areas with abundant food and water throughout. The ranch does qualify for landowner mule deer tags that have been unit wide allocation (always check regs), with monster bucks documented. Blue grouse & turkey also call the ranch home. BML&E Ranch has traditionally carried +/- 300 pair for 4 months a year, and keeps an incredibly low tax bill of +/- $3100 annually...That is very good. Be it the land investment retreat you always dreamed of very close to Telluride skiing, dining & air access, or the location you wished for to build that Yellowstone Dream home that would make for an unimaginable equestrian property.  Large watered & protected land holdings like Beaver Mesa Livestock & Elk Ranch are becoming more and more scarce. To have this large of a ranch so close to Telluride is rare and for the 7.7M it is even more rare. Almost literally impossible too find. Co brokers welcome…
