About the Region

The Telluride region offers a variety of mesa properties and residential subdivisions. Because 67% of all land in San Miguel County is public land, there is a limited supply of vacant land with little chance of any new subdivisions of less than thirty-five acres in the future. Parcels range in size from less than one acre to thousands of acres on the outlying mesas. The subdivisions close to town, such as the Ski Ranches, Aldasoro Ranch, Elk Run, and Hillside tend to be smaller in size (1-5 acres). Prices for larger acreage vary depending on access, views, surface water and proximity to town.
