McCormick Ranch offers the unsurpassed opportunity to have a 35 acre property. Conveniently, you still have the ability to walk or ride your bike into Crested Butte. As you reach the east end of Elk Avenue you will come to a gate and a cattleguard. The property beyond this is McCormick Ranch. Consisting of only seven parcels this location can’t be beat. Although you technically own 35 acres, only 2 acres (+/-) is considered the home-site and the remaining property is used as agricultural land.
You can keep horses on your property and graze them on the maintained common area. Periodically, it is still used for public grazing and to grow hay. This arrangement keeps open space around you. It also helps to keep your property taxes low by taking advantage of the lower agriculture rate. Not many properties come up for sale in this area, but I will certainly keep my eyes open if this is the place you want to be.
