8.86 full acres at the foot of Lookout Mountain

Only once in a lifetime does 8.86 full acres bordering the City of Del Norte come available. The same families have owned this gorgeous acreage for decades, and are finally ready to let it be acquired by a visionary who can make it into something new.

Adjacent to the Lookout Mountain Trailhead and open space park, which is 200 acres of open space for hiking and biking, this gently rolling and mostly flat lot will captivate you with spectacular views.

At the very southern end of Spruce Street, just at the trailhead, and backing the famous Del Norte Lookout Mountain, the property lines are almost the same as the hiking and biking trails.

Build your dream luxury home, surrounded by nature, ensuring privacy and exclusivity. Imagine a LEED certified home such as rammed earth walls with a trombe wall, and curved walls of windows to take in the breathtaking views. With plenty of local materials and green architects, this stunning location provides so much potential to build a home that will last for decades. Almost 9 acres means the possibility of a private horse property and any other livestock for a hobby farm or animal rescue. 

You could also be a part of the solution, and try your hand at a much-needed local housing project. You must be an experienced builder, or have a great project manager to begin dreaming about building. Consult with the Town of Del Norte and Rio Grande County as it relates to all these use and zoning ideas tying into water, sewer, electricity, and fiber optic WiFi.

Or build your dream off-grid home, capturing the ample year-round sunlight for solar power.

Walk to downtown Del Norte to the amazing general store, brewery, restaurants, cafes, organic food grocery store, thrift stores, and library. Have a fancy dinner at the Windsor Hotel, or stroll over to see the folks at The Sturdy Horse to get your healthy horse feed.

The Rio Grande Hospital is just on the other side of the mountain to the west, and the school is just to the east and is also within walking distance.

The Del Norte Trails Organization takes great care of all the local trails, of which there are many miles for hiking and biking.

Wildlife abounds in the area, including many migratory birds for your birding pleasure.

The Rio Grande River is just on the other side of town, and offers ample fishing for miles up and down the river. In fact, the headwaters of the Rio Grande River is only about an hour drive away. Top notch fishing in gold medal rivers, and world class hunting in all nearby GMUs, this could be your landing pad for all your outdoor adventures.

Del Norte is a very lively, vibrant, and up-and-coming community with a lot of fun people and activities.

When it’s time to head out of town, the San Luis Valley Regional Airport in Alamosa (ALS) is less than an hour away. When it’s time to go skiing at Wolf Creek Ski Area, you are only about 40 miles away, less than an hour's drive.

Hot springs soaking at Joyful Journey or lap swimming at Hooper Pool are also within an hour.

Located near one of the largest growing valleys in the world, you will enjoy the culture that a farming community has to offer in the great San Luis Valley.

Be a part of the fabric of the community, and explore all the wonders that the City of Del Norte and southern Colorado has to offer–something different, organic, healthy, fun, and lively!

Birding, hiking, biking, rock-climbing, hunting, fishing, bar hopping, thrifting, swimming, live music festivals, and so much more await you here!
