The Dream Ranch consists of 70 beautiful acres that directly border the Colorado River offering almost ¼ mile of private premier river frontage. The property can better be described simply as somewhat of an oasis. Once you enter through the private iron gated entrance you meander up a curved gravel drive that is lined with old large Cottonwood trees, and then you feast your eyes upon luscious green fields, manicured landscaping, a large pond with waterfalls and a fountain spraying water that just creates a relaxing atmosphere. Here you’ll see the luxurious main house that sits directly on the ponds Northern edge with a deck that extends out allowing you to fish right from your easy chair. Due to the ambiance and remarkable beauty of the property, many weddings, special events, and professional photoshoots are held on the property. If you didn’t know it existed you would never know it was here. The property has natural wetlands that are fed by the Colorado River, some hidden springs, and a creek that runs through the property. The property has water rights from a reservoir that has been undeveloped to date. This is a beautiful area, especially during the summer months while providing a habitat for beaver, fish, ducks and other wildlife as well.
The North Border of the property is bordered by the Battlement Mesa Walking Trail, an improved walking path that was developed in 2012 which connects with the local golf course walking trail and serves as a connection point for several other walking trails all across the community. The Western boundary is the 18-hole golf course which creates a stunning backdrop in the early morning sunrises.
There is something to be said about the spectacular Western Colorado sunsets, they are glorious and The Dream Ranch provides optimum viewing pleasure from the main house and the upper-level buildings. Which is why a fire pit area was constructed on top of the hill in front of the main office building, so that you can sit out there in the evenings and soak it all up.
The orchards on the hill are full of crabapple trees that provide beautiful spring foliage along with picturesque manicured gardens with a unique handcrafted wooden forest trail that leads in and out of dry creek beds all along the pond and waterfall area. This creates a tropical paradise that allows you to simply escape into it’s surroundings as you listen to the waterfalls and smell the flowers.
