Congratulations to the team at Mirr Ranch Group for their sale this week of 2,038-acre Sandstone Ranch in Douglas County, Colorado. Sold on February 6, this is both the biggest and most expensive land sale recorded through the Lands of America Comparable Sales program over the previous seven days.
With its brilliantly colored red-rock formations rising from lush green meadows, the 2,038-deeded-acre Sandstone Ranch is one of the most iconic and scenic properties in the Front Range of Colorado. Located between Denver and Colorado Springs near the town of Larkspur, the ranch affords convenient access to amenities but is unique in its seclusion and solitude.
Situated at the end of a private lane, the property opens to rolling pastures lined by meandering creeks and ponds that rise to the forested hillsides of adjoining million-acre Pike National Forest. A working ranch since the 1870s, the property exhibits a balance of historic and modern ranch facilities reflecting the geology, history and vernacular of the area. The property also enjoys entitlements in place for a future equestrian-anchored large-lot residential development.
One of the fastest-growing counties in the state given its location to the south of the booming Denver metro area, Douglas County still retains its outdoor-centric approach to the life. A mix of rangeland and mountain slopes as you move south from the suburban areas fringing the Mile High City, outdoor enthusiasts can explore miles of hiking and biking trails that thread public-land areas amidst beautiful legacy ranches like Sandstone Ranch.
