Peaceful and private 5 acre wooded property located near Lemon Reservoir with tall Ponderosa Pines and no covenants or restrictions. Situated on the doorstep to millions of acres of National Forest this beautiful and easily accessible property comes complete with a sweet little updated cabin. Built in the 1950's to serve as the sales office for the Wilderness Lakes subdivision, the 613 square foot cabin is privately situated and features two bedrooms, one downstairs and the other in the large loft. Many recent updates include a complete releveling of the foundation, new Quadra Fire fireplace insert, new tongue and groove aspen ceilings throughout, new picture window that perfectly frames the Colorado outdoors, upgraded electrical system, new exterior steel doors and a fantastic covered porch. The cabin does not currently have a source of water, but a new owner could drill a well or install a cistern and there is an updated outhouse on the property. There is a large shed and plenty of cut firewood for immediate enjoyment of this wonderful back to basics cabin in the woods. With easy year round access and Lemon Reservoir, the Florida River and over 1.8 million acres of San Juan National Forest right out your door, you can fish, paddle board, swim, kayak, hike, backpack, snowmobile or cross country ski right out your front door! All this and only a 30 minute drive to Historic Downtown Durango on almost all paved roads makes this the perfect location to take advantage of all the best Southwest Colorado has to offer.
