Deer Hollow is a 40 acre undeveloped ranch that is an unusual find in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Composed of several ridges, a grassy valley and hollow, the native land is untouched and distinctive. The ranch can be purchased for spectacular trophy residence or for a private ranch. The unobstructed views stretch from Wyoming to Southern Colorado.
LOCATION & AREA
The ranch is located just 25 minutes from the Interstate 25 and Highway 56 exit. It is also located within 30 minutes of several major Northern Colorado cities, including the Metro Denver Area, Longmont, Loveland and Ft. Collins. Deer Hollow is secretly nestled within the ridges and valleys of the foothills just 10 miles west of Berthoud, Colorado. Entrance into the property is on maintained County roads.
Berthoud, known as the garden spot of Colorado is a small, quaint and historic community of approximately 5,000 people. There are several restaurants, shopping centers and conveniences. Ft. Collins, to the north is the county seat of Larimer County and has a population of over 130,000. Within an easy 30 minute drive of the ranch there is variety of fine shopping, dining and entertainment amenities. Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park is just a scenic 30 minute drive up the canyon to the west, where year round activities and diverse wildlife abound.
The 40 acres consists of a large grassy valley in the center of the property, with numerous moss rock ridges on the North and West edges. There is a large hill located on the south east side of the property that would be perfect for your residence. The acreage scattered with mature pine groves, Mountain Mahogany and Choke Cherry. The ridges all have excellent views that can never be obstructed. There are many suitable building sites to choose from at each vista, all with an awesome view of the Front Range cities and mountains. It has ultimate privacy, at the end of the road.
There is a spring on the West side of the valley which seasonally and depending on rainfall, forms a small creek that flows across the large boulders and pools as it traverses down the valley, forming pools as it goes.
WILDLIFE & RECREATION
Deer Hollow Ranch has an abundance of wildlife year round. Most frequent and numerous are herds of mule deer. There are also coyotes, elk, quail, bobcat, and eagles. Birds of all kinds are abundant on this foothills ranch.
Minutes away over the north ridge of the ranch is Carter Lake, a 1,100 acre reservoir which has full recreational facilities, including moorings, boat docks, a sail boat yacht club and a new visitors center. Primary activities on the lake are sailing, fishing, camping, hiking and power boating. Fishing opportunities include Trout, Walleye and Kokanee.
In addition, there are currently over 20 golf courses within 30 miles of Deer Hollow. With Rocky Mountain National Park less than 30 minutes up the canyon, year round sporting and outdoor activities await. Ski resorts are as close as 45 minutes from the ranch.
The large valley in the center of the land has a healthy stand of native grasses and is well suited for horses or a few cattle. There is plenty of space for a barn, corrals, a storage building and pastures.
For the privileged buyer you have private habitat of 40 acres to create and build your own ranch or home exactly the way you want it and where you want. Undeveloped land in the Rocky Mountain Foothills with the unobstructed views is an unexpected find.
Property like the Deer Hollow Ranch rarely exists within this proximity to the Front Range communities. It offers a very pristine, yet private retreat for the fortunate buyer. The healthy mature trees, enchanting rock outcroppings, wildlife, privacy and close in location make this property very appealing to a buyer within the Northern Front Range.
