San Miguel County, Colorado Real Estate
San Miguel County is one of the most desirable locations to own real estate in southwest Colorado. An outdoor paradise, it is home to one of the state's premier ski resorts - Telluride Ski Area - and numerous national protected areas, trails, and byways. San Miguel County real estate presents homes, townhouses, and condos in all shapes and sizes - many with spectacular panoramic mountain views. Real estate for sale in San Miguel County runs the gamut from affordable starter homes for individual owners and new families to elaborate ranch properties, estates, and breathtaking slopeside private luxury houses.
There is real estate for sale all over San Miguel County, in towns like Telluride, Mountain Village, Norwood, Ophir, and Sawpit. There are also a few unincorporated communities, like Ames, Egnar, Pandora, Placerville, Sams, Slick Rock, and the ghost town of Tomboy. The county has about 8,000 residents, many of whom enjoy spending time outdoors. Recreationally, there are endless opportunities in the summer and winter months - everything from Gold Medal fly-fishing and amazing whitewater rafting to world-class downhill skiing and snowboarding. Telluride, the county seat, has premier properties only minutes from the slopes and a good selection of ski-in and ski-out residential properties. Beautiful condos and upscale townhouses near the ski lifts and more affordable houses are further removed from the resort.
San Miguel County has a fantastic collection of national protected areas, including the Lizard Head Wilderness, the Mount Sneffels Wilderness, the Old Spanish National Historic Trail, the Telluride National Historic District, and the Uncompahgre National Forest. Many undeveloped lots are for sale near these areas and other spaces protected by the state Bureau of Land Management. Many property owners covet land bordering BLM property because there is little chance for neighboring development, abundant natural scenery, and an influx of native wildlife.
