  Property Description

Welcome to one of the finest ranches southwest Colorado has to offer, a true Heaven on Earth! Nestled in the Florida River Ranch just south of Durango, this 106-acre property has two beautiful homes with the option of building more homes along the riverbanks. Over 2,200 feet of the Florida River runs through this property! There is a luxurious main home, and a very nice guest house with attention to detail at every turn. The homes sit at a higher elevation than the river providing stunning views of the valley below and cliffs behind. Some of the most unique boulders surround the homes making it feel like a true Southwest Colorado Dream Home. The homes are very private and blend in with the surrounding area flawlessly. Upon entering the main home, you walk into the living room with vaulted ceilings and ample natural light. There is an imported Rumford fireplace (designed by physicist Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford best known for his investigations of heat), a very efficient source of heat and ambiance as the centerpiece of the living area. Built in indoor/outdoor sound system makes this a perfect entertaining space. The kitchen is just off the living room and includes imported Aga stoves from Sweden, granite countertops, custom cabinets, and a prep room with a very large pantry. The Master bedroom is massive with many windows bringing in that natural light and outside feel. The master bath features a luxury soaking tub with a separate shower and a HUGE walk-in closet. There is also a large hobby room (could be used as the fourth bedroom for the main house) with a hot tub outside. The main house also has two additional bedrooms and two additional full bathrooms. Plenty of space for the whole family and guests! A large 2-car garage is attached to the main house. There is outdoor access from every room in this home, giving you the opportunity to really enjoy that Colorado nature it’s so famous for. Mounted on the main southern facing roof of the main house is a row of solar panels. Both the homes are serviced with central air conditioning to beat the summer heat. The finishes in this home are exquisite with supreme attention to detail at every turn! THE GUEST HOME: This 1,980 sq ft guest home with a heated 2-car garage/shop adds tremendous value to the property. Completely private from the main home, guests will love staying here. Complete with a brick walking path and a brick patio, the guest house offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as a full kitchen with granite countertops. The guest home also boasts of an imported Aga range/oven. Built in indoor/outdoor sound system is also present in the guest house. THE PROPERTY: These are some of the best riverfront lots in the subdivision with swimming holes, shaded areas with benches, and many beautiful trees along the banks. The fields grows some of the best weed free hay around. With senior water rights, and free propane that runs the water pump, it makes the growing process very affordable and profitable. The 15 acres of hay fields produce over 2,000 bales of certified weed free hay each year. The water rights associated with the property is phenomenal! You won't find more water availability in the area (Water right documents available upon request; buyer to verify all water rights). You can even build more beautiful homes along the riverbanks!
