. July 20, 2010 . 0 Comments

Beaver Creek Highlands Ranch – a 530-acre recreational ranch in Garfield County that includes two freshwater springs, frontage on a rushing trout stream and unsurpassed views of area mountain ranges — will sell at auction Saturday, Aug. 28.

The recreational land, located between the Beaver Creek Basin and the Porcupine Creek Basin, has excellent hunting and fishing and will be offered in 14 tracts, ranging from 35 acres to 70 acres. Seven tracts will sell absolute, meaning they will go to the highest bidder with no minimum or reserve, according to Jim Woltz, president of Woltz & Associates, which will market the property and manage the sale.

“Each of these tracts has its own beauty, its own personality,” said Woltz. “They all sit between 7,400 and 8,400 feet, and many have great views of the Colorado River Valley, the Flat Top Mountain Range, the Grand Hogback Mountain Range, or the Grand Mesa. Several of them have creek frontage, and two tracts even have their own natural sources of spring water, one feeding a pond.”

The property also boasts numerous gaming and recreational opportunities, according to Woltz, including hunting, fishing, biking, snowmobiling, cross country skiing, and hiking. Parts of the property adjoin the national forest and land owned by the Bureau of Land Management.

“This land epitomizes the Colorado mountain getaway,” Woltz said. “Yet it’s only nine miles from the Garfield County Airport in Rifle, Colo.” The property is also easily accessible to I-70, and is a short commute from Denver, Aspen, Vail, and Grand Junction, Colo.

The auction will be held at the Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs. Open house events will take place on August 14, 15, 21, 22, and 27 with Woltz auction associates available for consultation.
