Dear Friend:

Grandfather knew what value was.  “Buy land,” he’d say.  “They’re not making any more of it.”

He was right, of course.  There’s nothing of more enduring value than the earth and the home you build on it.

That’s why I’m sure you’ll be interested in knowing about Pine Cone Ranch, the magnificent 320-acre premium lifestyle community situated on Vollmer Road in the Black Forest.

Pine Cone Ranch is about 15 miles from the center of Colorado Springs.  But it’s like stepping into a different world...a different time.  Stand of stately pines grace the rolling, grassy meadows of this former working horse and cattle ranch.  Wildlife bounds over the hills and comes to drink at the old watering pond near the ranch center.

You can unwind from a hard day’s work in the best of nature’s ways — strolling over the hillsides...riding the family horse...basking in the fresh air and sunshine.  You can ski cross-country in the winter...hike and jog in a stunning natural setting...and feel confident that those blessing of nature will remain, guarded by a strict set of protective covenants that insure a quality of life as precious as it is rare.

But while the natural features of Pine Cone Ranch are being scrupulously preserved, all the amenities of a modern community are available, too.  All-weather roads have been installed in the development.  Sports and recreation facilities are in place, including a picnic pavilion and party center, an elaborate community stable, equestrian arena and riding trails.  A tennis court is planned to be completed in 1983.

Pine Cone Ranch is located conveniently on one of the main Black Forest thoroughfares, with ready access to the city, the Air Force Academy and the proposed Space Center.  And children living at Pine Cone Ranch can attend the highly desirable Air Academy District 209 schools.

Homesites at Pine Cone Ranch included wooded, partially wooded and open tracts.  All sites are served by low-traffic, county-maintained roads within the community, rather than through highways.  Many of the homesites have excellent southern slopes, perfect for solar-oriented architecture.  And many have superb views of Pikes Peak and the Front Range.

The Pine Cone Ranch Homeowners Association enforces all protective covenants and maintains and operates the common areas and facilities.  All property owners are required to support the association with a yearly fee of $100.00, but only those residents who wish to use the community stable facilities will share in the expense of operating those facilities.  Naturally, you may stable your own horses on your property.

Only 57 families will be fortunate enough to live at Pine Cone Ranch.  Five-acre parcels are priced from $26,500 to $55,000, and excellent financing terms are available from the owner.

Pine Cone Ranch is a unique western community, a magnificent lifestyle setting and the kind of land that Grandfather would have seen as a tremendous opportunity — even in his day, when spectacular Colorado property like this was in abundance.

Today it’s almost all gone.  And that makes a purchase at Pine Cone Ranch an even more compelling consideration — either as the site for a family home you can look forward to passing along, or as a way to participate in the rapid growth of the Colorado Springs and Black Forest areas.

Call The Rawhide Co., Realtors, today, to arrange to see Pine Cone Ranch.  We’re delighted to represent this very special community, and we want to share it with you.  You can reach us at...
