GREEN MESA RANCH IN THE QUARTZ CREEK VALLEY IN PARLIN, COLORADO - At a very pleasant elevation of 8,035 feet, Green Mesa Ranch lies in the Quartz Creek Valley and historically was a strong cattle ranch rich in beef and hay production. Now subdivided into 13 parcels, Lot 5 contains 12.4 acres bisected with over 550 ft of Quartz Creek frontage, a popular trout stream that ribbons through the entire ranch. Private fishing rights are granted to all 13 owners and their guests along the Quartz Creek. Part of this land is leased for hay production so the owners benefit from low taxes due to the AG status. A nice, level building site has been excavated on this parcel. It is a fisherman's dream with hunting available on nearby NF lands and the Fossil Ridge Wilderness area. Views are excellent of nearby mountains and lush hay meadows and privacy and seclusion is one of the key features! Just a 20 minute drive into Gunnison for shopping, schools, Western State Colorado University and the Gunnison-Crested Butte Airport with year-round air transportation.
