Perched atop the highest point in the coveted Destination Ranch, a location immortalized in the film “City Slickers,” this property epitomizes legacy living. Positioned with awe-inspiring vistas in every direction, including the iconic La Plata Mountain peaks, it offers unparalleled privacy amid untamed wilderness, just a brief 25-minute drive from downtown Durango. The exclusive, gated Destination Ranch is a working cattle ranch, and this pinnacle lot spans 40 acres, encompassing expansive pastures and ever changing terrain crisscrossed by an extensive network of trails. The property boasts numerous delightful spots for relaxation, such as the front patio with a tranquil fountain and pond and meticulously groomed lawn, creating a serene sanctuary. Patios and decks envelop the home, providing both intimate retreats and grand outdoor living areas that showcase some of the most breathtaking views imaginable. The interior space is generous and inviting, with an open living floorplan integrating the living, dining, and kitchen areas. The living room features a striking beamed, vaulted ceiling and unobstructed vistas of public lands and the La Plata Mountains. The chef’s kitchen is a culinary dream, offering ample storage and a spacious pantry. The master suite includes its own private balcony, a fireplace, and a stunning bathroom with a distinctive stone wall shower that affords views of Missionary Ridge. The lower level of the home expands the entertainment and relaxation options, housing a recreation room that easily accommodates a pool table, TV, and bar area. Additionally, there is a spacious office and a home gym. A standout feature of the lower level is the remarkable home theater equipped with cutting-edge technology, including an exceptional sound system. Rounding out the lower level are two bedrooms, each with its own bath and outdoor space. The property is equipped with advanced features, including four heat zones, an alarm system, and two internet-accessible outdoor cameras. Despite its size and amenities, this efficient home boasts remarkably low utility costs, with water provided at no charge, propane primarily for winter use only, and average electricity costs of under $200 per month over the previous 12 months. This extraordinary mountain retreat is truly one-of-a-kind and warrants firsthand appreciation.
