Private, gorgeous 35-acre lot in Melby Ranch with views and direct runway access! Known as Lot P, this lot is near the bottom of the runway (southwest end) with good access via a public road. The land has beautiful pinon pines and open spaces with gorgeous mountain views. The land is buildable, level and clear of trees in many locations. On the eastern boundary of the lot is an airplane driveway so it would be easy to navigate aircraft to a private hangar on the lot. At present the runway is not in regular use. Neighboring properties are not developed and the area is quiet and serene. The land is well-located within the community, about 1/2 mile to Wildhorse Drive, the main road that accesses the community well, Lake Sanchez, San Luis, and the road to Taos. ABOUT AREA SERVICES: Household water is usually from a cistern; water is available locally for purchase from the Little Norway Water Company. Domestic use well permit is also available by application to the Colorado Division of Water Resources. Cell phone service varies by location; satellite internet is available. Property access may be year-round with road maintenance by the county; please confirm details with the county. Buyers who wish to build on their land should contact the Costilla County Planning and Zoning Department to learn more. ABOUT THE AREA: Costilla County offers amazing value to the Colorado land buyer looking for wild scenic vistas, solitude, hiking, and incredible stargazing.

The Wild Horse Mesa-Melby Ranch community lies at 8,000-plus feet elevation, spanning about 20 square miles. Remote Southern Colorado offers privacy and an escape from the hectic urban lifestyle!
