This exquisite 1,769-acre ranch, with approximately 1 mile of improved La Plata River, is one of the last large acreage ranches in the region and it is only 15 minutes from historic downtown Durango. The property consists of several improvements, including a newly remodeled 6,780 SF, 4 bedroom, 4 bath main residence, a 1,100 SF, 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest home, a 2,400 SF stable with apartment and two large top-quality shops. The ranch has several ponds and hay meadows. It would make a great cattle or horse ranch. Elevations range from 8,200' to 9,200' offering alpine vegetation and cooler summer temperatures, while avoiding severe winter extremes due to its proximity to the high desert. The fishery (ponds and river) provides for great experiences and there is exceptional elk hunting.
