Description

The Florida River runs through this exquisite 71+ acres of irrigated grass pastures and treed, beautifully bouldered hillside. Located in a hidden, gated subdivision of 35 acre tracts, these two adjoining lots each have a building envelope that allows for two homes per lot. (Four houses allowed). Peaceful and pastoral, one feels a sense of space and Nature in this wide green valley under huge Colorado skies. Current owner raises and sells the certified weed-free grass growing on about 15 acres of the property. Irrigation equipment is included with the purchase of the property and includes piping, pivot sprinkler heads wheels and water connections. There is also an organic, fenced orchard and metal hay barn. Farming equipment in the hay barn may be negotiable for sale to Buyer. Irrigation is senior priority, abundant, and is pumped using free propane. Ag status for taxes keeps those extremely low. Beautiful homes have been built in the subdivision, and only one of them is in the valley view from these extraordinary building sites. Rarely does one see a car on the two neighborhood roads. The off-the-beaten-track atmosphere and lush verdant landscaping in this hidden valley are the vision many have for their Colorado dream home, yet few people in Durango even know of its existence here.... just 20 minutes from Durango City limits! The property is being sold also with the possible inclusion of a wonderful 3800 sq ft home and enchanting guest house located above the valley, nestled in an indescribably magical 35 acre setting of massive, unique rock formations and ancient trees. There is nothing else like it in the Durango area! See MLS#792699 for a description of the home and guest house. The river valley parcel should be a serious consideration for the person looking for river frontage, serenity, and valuable water rights within minutes of Durango. There are so many choices for its use, whether it would be for horses, cattle, hay production or simply a gorgeous setting for a new home. The two lots must be purchased together, but can be sold individually after purchase.
