Diamond K Ranch - Larkspur, Colorado
Douglas County, Colorado Horse Property
Lot Size: 186 Acres
You'll sense the rich heritage high plains ranching history the minute you set foot on the scenic Diamond K Ranch near Monument, Colorado. Formerly known as the 101 Ranch, the 186-acre property is set at 7300 feet among grassy hills and scattered ponderosa pine forests and offers panoramic views of Pikes Peak and the highlands between Colorado Springs and Denver. Although it has historically seen mostly cattle ranching, the Diamond K is an ideal candidate to become a readily-accessible, high-end equestrian ranch, a private wildlife preserve or subdivided into 35-acre parcels.
The centerpiece of the Diamond K is the historic ranch headquarters, complete with mature cottonwoods and the original 4 bedroom, 3 bath home, rustic homesteader's cabin and classic red barns. Rumor has it that the historic 101 Ranch used to be an "outlaw hangout" for the areas most wanted! Also included are a caretaker's mobile home, newer shop and corrals. The ranch is completely fenced into several pastures, and is ready-to-go as a small cattle operation, or easily converted into an equestrian ranch.
Located in Douglas County, one of the fastest-growing counties in Colorado, the Diamond K Ranch is ideally located for an owner desiring a mid-sized personal retreat less than an hour from two major metropolitan areas, or a developer envisioning subdividing the property into smaller ranches catering to horse lovers. It is located adjacent to the Lazy H Equestrian Ranch, which will never be developed due to its conservation easement, and the Diamond K is a prime candidate for a conservation easement itself. Mule deer, turkey, and elk are common on the ranch, and some may want to simply leave the property as it is for the benefit of these big game species.
The Diamond K Ranch is easily-accessible year-round, located only about 8 miles east of Interstate 25, 38 miles from Denver and 24 miles from Colorado Springs and the Air Force Academy. Such historic ranches located so close to Colorado's major urban centers are rare finds, indeed. Harrigan Land Company invites you to discover the Diamond K Ranch, to appreciate its past and to allow your imagination to dream big about its future.
