Description

Own a rich piece of Colorado history!! Currently used as a small ranching operation, this hidden gem was lively in the 1930's when it was known as 'LAKESIDE PARK', western Colorado's only amusement park. In fact, did you know that according to the Montrose County Historical Society, in 1886 John Edmond Pelton owned this farm and with springs providing the clear water, Pelton built an earthen dam to create the lake. While the lake provided water for the farm, it also became a favorite recreation location for Montrose residents. Picnics, boating, fishing, and swimming in the summer and hunting in the fall made the lake an important attraction. Ice was harvested from 'Pelton Lake' during the winter months. In 1910 the farm and lake was sold and the property became known as 'Lakeside Park'. Today, nestled under towering shade trees still lies the 4.5 acre lake mostly popular to wildlife, livestock and fish. Approximately 31 acres of the pasture/farm ground is fenced and cross fenced. (Includes some priority water shares). This property includes the 1,162 s/f original homestead with outbuildings , (2) Chipeta water taps, (2) septic systems and (2) electric meters. Water rich, with unique nostalgia make truly make this a ONE OF A KIND property. Build your dream home and turn this into an estate, or...the skies the limit with Lakeside DEVELOPMENT possibilities. Request an information packet detailing the 100 year history, lake and irrigation water, and current farming/ranch operation. **Closing will be contingent on final plat approval.
