Set in the gorgeous high alpine country between Rye and Wetmore, Colorado, this scenic 240 acres offers ultimate privacy, trophy hunting, and a historic past. The ranch was used as a filming location for two Hollywood movies. Vengeance Valley starring Burt Lancaster was filmed on the property in 1951 and the Outcast starring John Derek in 1954. This property is the one of the oldest recorded homesteads in Custer County and remnants of the old homestead buildings are seen today. The ranch is located just of Highway 165 and approximately 45 minutes southwest of Pueblo, Colorado. The land is classic Colorado high alpine country with lush meadows, aspen groves, spruce and pine forest, beautiful wild flowers, a mountain creek and active spring. There are spectacular mountain and valley views in many locations and and several miles of interior roads to access all portions of the ranch. Properties in this area are held in families for generations and rarely come on the market. The ranch has a rustic hunting camp that is approximately 1,000 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath and has electricity, telephone and a state permitted well. The camp also has an attached workshop, storage area and carport to pull in recreational vehicles. In addition there is a large detached metal barn for vehicles, tools and equipment. Entrance to the ranch is gated and locked. Numerous building sites exist for a new cabin or lodge with easy access to electric service which is often not available on these secluded alpine properties. This property is extremely unique and there are many possibilities here including family legacy ranch, hunting property, horses, ATV use, camping, or building a new cabin.
