Looking to escape the crowds, live off-grid and have a self-sustaining private ranch environment without sacrificing comfort and luxury.  Welcome to Mondorosa Ranch!  The current owners have thought of every detail on this ranch property with care and style.  Set on a spacious 218 acres of rolling hills, trees, pasture and rock outcroppings this ranch exudes an old western feel with a modern flair.  This lovely property offers the opportunity to own a small and private ranch with a modern mountain home and horse facilities.  Set against the foothills of Cap Rock, a prominent area geological formation, this property offers sweeping views of the Sangre De Cristo Range from all vantages of the home.   The property is fenced, cross fenced and gated and sets up nicely for horses and livestock.  The property was once part of the 40,000 acre Nash Ranch and the historic corrals have been restored and are in working order. The Ranch does not have any covenants and is not part of an HOA so many uses are possible. The Mondorosa Ranch would be ideal for a small livestock ranch, horse operation, residential or recreational ranch, family or legacy property.  Because of its size, there is also the possibility to divide the ranch into several parcels.  The Ranch could also be sold turnkey with the furniture and equipment also available for sale.  Rarely, if ever, will you find a western ranch with so much to offer and in such fine condition. 
The Ranch is located 90 minutes west of Colorado Springs and 35 minutes north of Canon City, Colorado and can be accessed on a year-round basis.  Recreational activities are numerous in this area and include easy drives to Cripple Creek, the Royal Gorge, Arkansas River, and Eleven Mile Canyon.
