McCormick Ranch offers the unique opportunity of owning 35 acres yet you can bike or walk into Crested Butte! As you reach the east end of Elk Avenue, you’ll come to a cattleguard and a gate. The property beyond this is McCormick Ranch. Consisting of only seven parcels, it’s a location that just can’t be beat!
Although you technically own 35 acres, only two acres, more or less, is considered the homesite; the remaining property is used as agricultural land. However you can keep horses on the property and graze them on the maintained common area that is still used periodically for grazing and to grow hay. This arrangement keeps a vast space around you but keeps your property taxes low by taking advantage of the lower agriculture rate. It’s for this reason and countless other benefits in owning a home here that not many properties come up for sale in this area, so when they do it’s extra special!
The development of McCormick Ranch helped to preserve 234 acres of wide open space. The ranch is nestled at the bottom of Mt. Crested Butte, adjacent to the Verzuh annexation subdivision of town. The parcel offers spectacular views of the valley and private fishing rights along the Slate River. The McCormick Ranch Road (trail) is just under a mile in length and can be used in conjunction with Tony’s Trail to access the Upper Loop from Crested Butte. It is a multiple use access trail, and its use was granted during the Verzuh annexation into town.
