About this property

This property presents a golden opportunity to live the Southwest Colorado lifestyle of adventure and outdoor recreation on the year round playground of the Animas River, only 9 miles to the heart of historic downtown Durango. Known as one of the last free flowing rivers in Colorado, this incredible area is the gateway to the Southwest and the amazing alpine adventures in the high country of the San Juan Mountains and surrounding mountain towns. This 80 acres of recreational paradise spans over 2/3 of a mile along the river and ascends in elevation with countless picturesque viewpoints of the Animas valley, the meandering river below, peaks of The La Platas and other mountains spanning all the way to New Mexico! Nestled in the mature cottonwood trees and lush native foliage of pinon, juniper and spruce trees, the Animas River provides abundant high quality fishing, with red, brown and rainbow trout to name a few. This unique parcel of land serves as a wildlife habitat to countless species including Herons, Mallords, Wild Turkey, Rocky Mountain Elk, Gray Fox, and resident, as well as migratory, bald eagles that arrive in the winter season to take refuge on the ice-free river. On the north end of the property, a gravity flow system diverts abundant water from the river creating wildlife ponds and fish habitats. The property is situated on both sides of County Road 213 with just under half along the river, featuring almost 15 irrigated acres. On the south side of the property, a reclaimed Cedar gazebo sits along the river's edge with an adjacent large flat area which has been used in the past for weddings, community events and family gatherings. This property comes with an ingress and egress at both the north and south ends. The possibilities are endless with this sprawling piece of land as it is an ideal location for a multi-generational dream estate, an investment opportunity, or a four season vacation getaway. This property evokes the spirit of a simpler time, when waiting for the sun to rise to bring warmth to the cold morning was the most important part of the day and when catching a meal and sitting by a glowing fire under the clear night sky meant the day was a sure success! Don't miss out on making this one of a kind property your own.
