The ''Nix Ranch'' is a 395 acre alpine paradise on Specie Mesa with a highly desirable one mile long common border with the Uncompahgre National Forest. Heavily treed with aspens and very private. Near the center of the property you'll find the original homestead cabin, a large historic barn, corral, a one bedroom cabin and storage sheds. The ranch offers seclusion with all the amenities of Telluride just 28 miles down the road. There is electric grid power to this location, and the water is from a cistern fed by a nearby spring. With elevations ranging from 9000 to 9800 feet and a very long direct private border with U.S.F.S., this would make a dynamite private elk hunting camp. Adjudicated springs and ditch rights for irrigation water complete the offering.
