    Description

    This property, located five miles from downtown Durango, is a rare find with 130 feet of Lightner Creek frontage, three acres of usable valley land adjacent to thousands of acres of State owned land, hundreds of trees (aspen, spruce, cottonwoods, ponderosas), open fields, dark-night skies, quietude, and privacy. Driving over the bridge to the property, it feels a bit like a Colorado fairy tale. Thanks to the year-round creek, bird watching is abundant: great blue heron, American dipper, Lazuli bunting, belted kingfisher, golden eagles, grosbeak, red tailed hawk, woodpeckers, swifts, and many other species. The area is rich with sightings of mountain mammals: deer, elk, big horned sheep, red fox, kit fox, and coyote, just to name a few. The property has been meticulously maintained and is chemical free. An ideal site for a future home is nestled in the cottonwood trees near the creekside, which the owners have cleared to create a park-like setting that could serve as a future backyard. Each season brings special treats. In spring, lilac trees, lavender, sand cherries bushes, and fruit trees blossom, as the valley grasses turn green. In summer, the cottonwood trees provide shade and the creek acts as a coolant, perfect for snoozing in a hammock. In the fall, the scrub oak on the hillside turn countless shades of ochre, from deep yellow to burnt orange to amber red. In winter, snow blankets the fields, just right for snowshoeing or building snowmen. Throughout the seasons, the milky way and stars shine brightly on clear nights. The property has established power, septic, well-water, and a 16' by 12' shed. This property has the location, infrastructure, water and views that are part of the Colorado lifestyle. Please note: the existing home was damaged by a boulder and is not habitable, contact listing broker for disclosure and engineering reports.
