Property Description

433 Acre San Luis Valley Farm & Ranch bordering BLM Land, featuring Tree-Lined River Banks, Fertile Ground, Scenic Hilltops & Rocky Mountain Views.

This Southern Colorado Property is just minutes east of Manassa and nestled amongst the Sange de Cristo Mountain Range to the East and the towering San Juan Mountains to the West.

Since the late 1800's, Four Generations of hard-working Farmers & Ranchers have Stewarded this Amazing Property, known as the Diamond Quarter Circle Ranch,

The San Antonio River runs the length of the property, making it a great place to relax, fish, and swim. For farmers and ranchers, the river serves as a reliable and coveted resource throughout the year.

This ranch with protected water rights has great potential for farming, ranching, vacation rentals, equestrian training/center, family home, and more—the sky’s the limit out here!

About the Home

Situated on a western corner of the property, the custom 4,540 square-foot home was designed for space and comfort, featuring a natural flowing floor plan. Cozy up for an evening around a fireplace; then, everyone can retreat to a private bedroom for the night. This home features:

Open-concept kitchen and living areas


Large walk-in pantry

Breakfast nook & formal dining area


Living Room & Family Room


Formal Office or Workspace


6 Bedrooms with walk-in closets

3.5 Bathrooms


Large Primary Suite with Soaking Tub


3 Fireplaces

Lots of Windows for invigorating natural light


Custom built-in storage, doors & cabinets


Fenced backyard


Lush front Law
n

Well-maintained equestrian facilities are located near the home as well.

About the Property

The Diamond Quarter-Circle Ranch is a uniquely versatile property. With directed irrigation available, crop farming, vineyards, and orchards are all plausible options. Cattle, horses, and sheep have all flourished on this ranch, and it regularly turns hay crops (garrison, tall fescue, and alfalfa) for profit.

This ranch offers a variety of landscapes, featuring lush farmland, riverbanks shaded by leafy cottonwood trees, and grassy pastures with views of the San Luis Hills. The San Juan Mountains are about 30 miles to the west.

The San Antonio River (Rio San Antonio) flows the length of the property. Two water channels/drainage ditches for runoff and flood control run parallel to the east of the river (Rincon Ditch & Eightmile Ditch, best maintained seasonally with an excavator).

A portion of the eastern boundary borders BLM land.

Perpetual Water Rights & Conservation Easement

With Colorado’s fluctuating wet and dry seasons, water is a precious resource. A conservation easement is in place to perpetually protect the property’s water rights.

Water access and water rights make targeted irrigation easy on the ranch. Established metal head gates enable shifting water to different parts of the property. (For instance, the current rancher waters the towering cottonwoods, hay fields, and crops as needed. There’s also a shut-off in place during extra rainfall.) With the well and irrigation controls, water is readily available year-round, even when the river is low.

The 805-foot well was recently updated with all new bowls and pipes. The well is great for backup if needed.

As another revenue opportunity, the owner can lease the water to a sub-district for one year at a time at a premium value.

Note: Stored water could take a few days to arrive upon request, but the water district can deliver or shut off as needed.

Note: Every 10 years, the property owner must prove the entire amount can be pulled. The current rancher does it annually.

3 Building Envelopes

In addition to the current home and equestrian area, another building envelope is allocated on a secluded portion of the ranch. This potential homesite could be ideal for a home on the hill overlooking the property with great foothill views. This location is perfect for watching wild game graze and passing through the property.

A third building envelope in the center of the property currently has some structures for farm machinery, horse stalls, feeding areas, etc.

Wildlife & Outdoor Recreation

Immerse yourself in nature everywhere you look. Wildlife thrives here. Herds of deer and elk pass through daily. Flocks of geese make their way to the rivers in the area, and bears and mountain lions make occasional appearances. (Be mindful when baling and cutting—many fawns and elk calves are born in this pasture.) It’s common to find wildlife grazing with livestock. It’s a great place to enjoy the wildlife that calls this ranch home.

Native trout migrate through this part of the river, heading upstream when the river gets low. You can also have it stocked with trout by a local fishery.

This property is in Game Management Area 81. Landowner hunting permits are available for deer, elk, bear, and other big game species on the ranch. (It’s recommended to have a policy in place in case of property and livestock damage or accidents for guests or hunting leases.)

Utilities & Accessibility

There are 0.5 miles of frontage road along the northern boundary on State Highway 142 and 0.45 miles along the western boundary on County Road 20.

Electricity runs along the road at the western boundary.

Local Necessities & Amenities

Public schools, grocers, a medical center and hospital, restaurants, and a regional airport are all less than 10 miles away in Manassa.

Ranch History

On neighboring land, you’ll still find the original 1887 brick home built by the rancher’s great-grandfather. Names of family members are etched into the hand-fired bricks. The current custom-built home is in the same location as the second family home built in 1888.

Over the years, the current owner has watched farming and ranching transform from hands-on work with a sickle and a horse to large machinery, but the essence remains the same. From lambing ewes to calving cows and now ranching horses, livestock, wildlife, and families alike have flourished here.

Working with land—albeit hard—challenges, grows, and grounds us. There’s immense satisfaction and pride that comes with this kind of productivity that lasts. What we sow today flourishes tomorrow. Living with the land inspires us to steward well and make the most of life.

“We hope this ranch is as dear to the next stewards as it has been for us. This is home.” Vaughn Jackson, 4th Generation Owner of Diamond Quarter Circle Ranch

Few things in life are more precious than making a home—creating a life—with those you love on the land you love. Stewarding land is a priceless gift and a tremendous opportunity.

Don’t miss an incredible opportunity to begin your legacy and create your vision on this beautiful ranch along the river in the San Luis Valley.
