I want more information on this property
Ready to escape the hustle and bustle of the city? Considering building a remote getaway? Dreaming of being able to see so many stars you lose count? Wanting to own your own piece of land out west? If the answer is yes, we have a 5-acre piece of land in the magnificent Costilla County ready to make your dreams come true. There are several adventures to be had in San Luis Valley—all with the potential to create unforgettable memories for you, your family, friends, guests, etc.
The land is accessible by dirt road (Leslie Rd and Calvin Rd) and connects into Hwy 142 and 159. The land is overall flat with a few rolling hills but ready to be built on. Walking across the land you will find mostly desert grass, cacti, and sage. Walk out on your front porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and witness the unmatched views of the San Luis Valley.
Grab a snowboard, sled, saucer, tube or toboggan and head to the Great Sand Dunes National Park. With sand dunes towering over 755 feet and covering over 30 square miles, you will have an out-of-this-world-experience surfing the desert. The dunes are only an hour away for an easy day trip. Run into a local and they will recommend camping overnight for one of the best views of the Milky Way in the valley. While in the area, make sure to check out Zapata Falls. Water crashes down from this 30-foot waterfall at the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Only a .4-mile hike from the trailhead, the waterfall is easily accessible for hikers of all ages and abilities. Visitors in the winter get a bonus gem as the waterfall freezes and creates an enormous ice column.
Make the dream come true and secure your spot in Costilla County today! You’ll soon be telling stories of owning your own land, building a house, snowboarding down giant sand dunes, and hiking to 30 foot waterfalls. All this is possible on 5-acres in the Centennial State!
