Coldwell Banker Global Luxury - Durango, CO

Extremely rare opportunity to own 78.81 acres with over 3000 ft of Animas riverfront only 1.5 miles from city limits with no covenants and 3 legal residences. Completed in 2015, the main residence is best described as "ranch industrial chic," with a striking combination of concrete, metal, and reclaimed barn wood throughout the interior. Procured from an historic timber frame barn built in Wisconsin in 1880, the barn was carefully dismantled and shipped to Durango where it was reassembled into the stunning beam and structural work which is the highlight of the impressive great room that encompasses much of the downstairs. Within the great room is a chefs kitchen with huge center island for gathering and prep work, Viking range, commercial hood, and prep sink; a spacious living room and dining area; and a library/study nook with built in shelving. A sunroom/garden room sits just off the dining area, and numerous French doors lead to several distinct outdoor spaces, including a comfortable covered porch, where you can take in the views of the river valley, the East Animas cliffs, Animas Mountain, Perins Peak, and Hogsback. This truly one of a kind home was constructed from SIP (structurally insulated panels), Core 10 roofing, and corrugated metal for an incredibly durable, high performance structure that defines Colorado rustic. The guest house is absolutely adorable with teak floors, updated kitchen w/ Viking range & stainless appliances, and a private, fenced yard. There is also a 2 bd 3/4 bath barn apartment. 18 Class A ditch shares provide plenty of irrigation for landscaping, fruit trees, livestock, and the 26 acres of hay fields. Outbuildings include: 9600 sf riding arena (larger than regulation); 4320 sf barn with 7 stalls, 2 tack rooms, and 3 garage bays; 3658 sf hay shed; 120 sf ag shop attached to a 4 car carport, granary, and a chicken coop. This is a meticulously maintained property in a prime location in the coveted Animas Valley in Durango, and an excellent opportunity for the discerning buyer to own a hobby farm, working ranch, or horse facility.
