Nestled just 15 miles south of La Junta, Colorado, the Centennial Ranch boasts a rich heritage spanning four generations and over 130 years within the same family. Encompassing approximately 12,509 acres, this expansive property features a diverse landscape of rolling hills, cedar/pinon tree terrain, and expansive flat grasslands. Accessible year-round via Highway 350 and well-maintained county roads on its East, West, and North boundaries, the ranch offers exceptional convenience.

The water system is robust, comprising three wells that supply stock tanks through an underground pipeline network spread across the property. With two distinct headquarters – one situated at the North end and the other at the South – the ranch offers versatile living and operational options. The North Headquarters features a spacious 2,203 square foot residence boasting three bedrooms, 1 3/4 baths, and expansive living, dining, kitchen, and family areas. Additionally, there's a 24' x 40' insulated barn and a 40' x 50' barn, both equipped with concrete floors. Original rock buildings and corrals add to the ranch's rustic charm.

At the South Headquarters, a charming 1 1/2 story adobe home offers 2,890 square feet of living space spread across seven bedrooms and one bath, complemented by a two-car garage and corrals. Both headquarters include overhead bin storage for feed, enhancing operational efficiency.

Beyond its agricultural appeal, the property offers exceptional recreational opportunities, located mere minutes away from historically significant sites like Vogel Canyon, Withers Canyon, and the Dinosaur Tracks, all managed by the United States Forest Service. The property includes a 1,920-acre State lease, subject to Colorado State Land Board transfer, and a U.S. Forest Service/Timpas Grazing District grazing allotment, contingent upon approval for transfer from the U.S. Forest Service/Timpas Grazing District.

Discover the timeless allure and vast potential of the Centennial Ranch – an enduring legacy of heritage, functionality, and recreational splendor.
