The nearest piece of civilization is Cotopaxi at 6,500 feet, 8-10 miles away. Cotopaxi is an itsy-bitsy town which consists of a few houses, a convenience store and gas station, church, school, liquor store, post office, sheriff's substation and a real estate office.
If you're interested in purchasing this place, take CR12 (just across from the convenience store), and head north. After about 4 miles the road turns to dirt but it's well-graded and an easy drive. Before long you'll see a "For Sale" sign leading to a trail (also dirt) which leads straight up the mountain. Take a left, say a prayer, and head up - about 2,000 more feet.
Must be a summer place. I don't think there is any way to get up that trail in the winter!
