Nelson Mountain Parcels
Nestled beneath pristine Nelson Mountain just north of Creede, these two properties are the definition of off-the-grid mountain privacy. Huge spruce and pine trees tower over each potential building site, offering cool shade and seclusion. Each of the parcels border National Forest lands, with instant access to a variety of outdoor recreation. Hike into Phoenix Park from your property and marvel at the year-round waterfalls and trout-filled beaver ponds. Backpack from your cabin door into the La Garita Wilderness Area, or hike up 14,014' San Luis Peak, where you will experience panoramic views of a remote part of Colorado that you never knew existed.
Due to the pristine nature of this unique environment, restrictive covenants allow only small cabins or yurts on each parcel. All properties are-off-the grid, and require solar or wind generated power if needed. Gasoline generators are allowed only as an emergency backup energy source (and during construction), to insure minimum noise pollution and maximum privacy for all owners.
The properties are easily accessed by driving 3 miles from Creede on a well maintained county road, followed by 1-1/2 miles of 4WD road (about 1/2 mile is steep). The more difficult section of the road enhances the privacy of the properties by minimizing traffic. Mineral County plows the road from Creede to the 4WD section in the winter. Each parcel has been recently surveyed and has several building sites to choose from. Owner financing is available to qualified purchasers.
The Ida Claim
The Ida claim sits high on Nelson Mountain with incredible panoramic views of the Willow Creek Valley below and Bristol Head peak in the distance, offering the ultimate in high-mountain living!
The parcel consists of 9.8 acres and is bordered on three sides by National Forest lands, affording extreme privacy and unparalleled mountain scenery.
The property is heavily wooded on the east side, with tall spruce, pine and aspen trees. The west side is the view side with a prime building site backing into the trees but overlooking the valley below.
Protective covenants and a surveyed, deeded Forest Service access add value and security to the property. This parcel has an incredibly remote and private feel to it, yet is only five miles from downtown Creede!
