TBD Johnson Road, Paonia, Colorado, 81423
One of the last largest (367 +/- acres) secluded, end of the road properties available in western Colorado. This area is known to the locals as the Basin. The Basin historically has been a wildlife retreat. A wide variety of wildlife including elk, mule deer, turkey, and occasional moose escape public pressure of the abutting thousands of acres of BLM and the higher-country winters to seek refuge in this private and secluded Basin. There are several lush fields that keep wildlife on the property and would also provide excellent summer grazing. East Roatcap Creek merges into West Roatcap Creek in the center of the property providing live water for wildlife and livestock. Additionally, the Basin has several year round springs that originate on the ranch. Vegetation consists of junipers, pinyons, gamble oak, box elders, sage brush, native grasses, and flowers. 80+/- acres of the northeast corner of the property and the abutting property to the west is bound by a conservation easement ensuring that the habitat will not be disturbed for the wildlife within the Basin. The remaining 287 +/- acres is not included in the conservation easement and offers numerous building locations with unbelievable views of the North Fork Valley, Mount Lamborn, or the distant San Juan Mountains. This gorgeous property is located 5 miles from the historic town of Paonia and only 20 minutes the North Fork Valley Airport. Grand Junction and Montrose regional airports offer multiple flights and are within 1 ½ hour drive. Grand Mesa National Forest, West Elk Mountains, McClure Pass, the Black Canyon National Park and Paonia will provide you endless recreational opportunities - local festivals, hiking, biking, camping, off roading, hunting, fishing, skiing, or just enjoying the endless western Colorado views!
