                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I personally built this home in 1998. I built it where you capture views from all of the windows. It is peaceful and quiet and I believe it has probably one, if not the best, panoramic views in San Juan County.

                  Why the Owner Chose Farmington:
                  Well, it is centrally located between the towns of Durango, CO and Farmington, NM---both only 25 minutes away. It is also close to the CO/NM border and the snow melts once you cross the state line:)

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You may hike to the river below if you so desire fishing and/or just simply would enjoy a river walk. We have one of the best mountain bike trails in the country 'The Alien' (also, a historical space ship crash/site recorded in 1948 and kept secret by the US Gov't)---just 5 miles down the road. 'Aztec Ruins' is just 10 minutes away. And for the Durango enthusiasts; San Juan 'Quality Waters' fisherman; golfers; rafters; skiers, etc...., you are just 30 or less minutes away----all the amenities of the 4 corners are nearby as this home is centrally located.
