Does anyone know anything about Hatchet Ranch? Pro's/con's? We've been looking at different areas and we keep getting drawn to this area. The properties are in our price range and the location seems to be perfect for us. We want to be within commuting distance of Pueblo/CS. I'm an X-ray tech and my husband is a mail carrier and retired military. He was stationed at the AF Academy so is familiar with the area. I contacted one realtor for some info and she never replied back. I requested some info from a different broker so I hope I hear something. We are going to try to make a trip down this summer and take a look around the area.
Any other areas we might consider? We want 40+ acres and will have at least 6 horses moving with us.

Thanks, Gayle

Default Hatchet Ranch.

I've answered posts about this place in the past and you might find a thing or two of use here.

I took some Colorado City pics that might be similiar to what you'll see out there off of Abbey Road and Pickney road, Graneros Road.

I'm sure a bunch of people know a lot more about that area than I do, but I drive it everyday on my way to and from work, used to live up in Colorado City, work there, and went to HS back in the day. It'd be nice to get some City-Data posters from there so we could learn more.

If you can find work in Pueblo and/or Colorado City, you'll be set. If you need to commute to Colorado Springs everyday, that would be kind of a bummer.

Welcome to Southern Colorado and welcome to City-Data/forum. I DM'd you a realtor recommendation. Let us know if this helps or not, thx.

Default Thank you for the info...

McGowdog.
I've been trying to look at as many threads about the area as I can get to. The Pueblo area seems to be the best fit for us right now. The availability of property and finances will dictated just where we end up.
We're also looking at Oregon and NE Oklahoma, but CO is firmly in the #1 spot right now, as much as I like OR. Hubby is still facinated with OK, but was stationed at the AF Academy years ago and loves the area. The pro's are outweighing the con's for CO at this point. Besides, I grew up in CA and love the mountains, which is why I've stayed in Alaska for so long, 20 years in June.

Thanks again!

We own property in Hatchett and hope to build there when we retire. It's beautiful, peaceful, lots of rolling hills and pines. There is a yearly fee for road maintenance, etc. Even though we don't live there, we gladly pay it. I believe there are approximately 50 miles of private roads and the road committee/maintenance has done a wonderful job to keep the roads in good shape and it does get plowed if there are 4" of snow. The only drawbacks I see are: some rattlesnakes; dry with the drought, pine beetle, we have to drill deep for our well. Otherwise, there is a lot of wildlife, hiking, riding, peace and quiet, and we have good neighbors. I don't think you could find a place closer to heaven.

I really like that area and I have heard it is one of the next growth spots in Pueblo county and I can see why. In the future I envision that area as Pueblo's version of Highlands Ranch in Denver just smaller as Pueblo is smaller.
