Never before listed, this unique ranchette in SW Colorado offers opportunities rarely available. The 54+ acres is 3 separate legal parcels so the “family compound” so many are looking for is possible here! Located on the hillside just minutes off CR 250, the primary home boasts unobstructed views of the Animas Valley, Engineer Mountain and the Needle Mountains in the distance. The owners have taken great care in creating an oasis in the mountains; with numerous idyllic ponds, water features and secret quiet areas to sip a cup of coffee, read a book, meditate or enjoy an evening cocktail. And did we mention the views? Photo worthy in every direction! Designed to take advantage of the Colorado sunshine, south facing floor to ceiling windows greet guests as they enter the home. With 4887 square feet, 4 bedrooms plus an office and 4 bathrooms, there is plenty of room for a growing family or the guests that will want to come visit! The spacious kitchen offers gorgeous granite counters with an island for food prep, 6 burner Jennaire range with custom hood, Subzero refrigerator, wine cooler, trash compactor, Kitchenaid microwave and wall oven as well as two separate pantries. Knowing the kitchen is where everyone gathers, the home flows seamlessly from the kitchen, into the dining room, the large living room and opens out onto the deck. Taking advantage of the southern exposure is the "green room" just off the living room, where your green thumb will rejoice at the options for veggies, exotic plants or just bringing the feel of the outside, inside. The remainder of the main level is a large primary bedroom and bathroom, mud room/laundry room and access to the oversized two car garage. Upstairs you will find another generous primary bedroom and bathroom, office, and two additional bedrooms and bathrooms. The huge den can be another office, work out area or entertainment/game room. Every room in this extraordinary home has windows bringing the natural beauty inside. And because Durango is the land of outdoor activities and toys, in addition to the oversized attached two car garage, there is a detached garage-perfect for bicycles, skis, kayaks, paddleboards, ATVs, or any ranch tools you may want. While the home is amazing, the property can't be duplicated. From the house, drive or walk down the hill to the valley where you can stock your pond with fish and enjoy the sound of the nearby stream. There is plenty of room for horses and the lush valley floor provides ample grazing not only for the horses, but the elk as well. You will never tire of the views as each season brings a new vista; snow on Engineer Mtn, fall leaves in the cottonwoods and aspens, bright green shoots from all the planted perennials and brilliant flowers in the summer. Quick National Forest access is right out your front door up Missionary Ridge Road. This road is ideal for ATVs, bicycles, motorcycles, jeeps and horses. It takes you to Henderson Lake and the trailhead into the Weminuche Wilderness. We are so honored to present this one of kind property! Schedule an appointment today!
